Ford Motors after re-badging â??Ford Fiesta Classicâ?? as â??Ford Classicâ?? has rolled out its first variant, Ford Classic Titanium with a price tag of Rs. 6.86 lakh (petrol) and 7.82 lakh (diesel) in New Delhi. Ford is known for its fuel efficient cars and Ford Classic Titanium's diesel and petrol version both are going to carry forward that tradition with a whooping mileage of 32.38 kmpl and 21.27 kmpl respectively (ARAI certified).
Ford Classic is a good car and even if the car is discontinued Ford will keep its parts for at least the next decade. In comparison to Etios it may be an old car but it can easily match Etios performance and comfort. Though, if you are planning to buy any one of these we will suggest you to wait until Ford launches its next car, the Figo Aspire.

The has been no such announcements from Ford motors on this. So the model is not being phased out in near future. But, yes eventually the model would certainly be phased out, but when is that going to happen is not certain.
No matter a car discontinue or not, the manufacturer makes the parts available for a good 8-10 years after it is being discontinued and as manufacturer uses the same engine in multiple models, there is a higher probability that you can get engine parts easily.
