having driven ford Ford Ikon for almost 8 years now i would strongly advice that you should not go for it. The car engine makes a lot more noise (for that matter any american car engine is noisy). The car is nowhere smooth in ride when i compare it to Honda City. Ofcourse Honda City is much more expensive also. But i am just trying to compare engine noise of a japanese make and american make. My Ford Ikon shockers went bad in 2 years flat. The power steering isnt very smooth either. The key to the gate does not work anymore(after 7 years though) and the key is specially designed so i cant go and get it made at any shop. The new key making charges are 700 Rs which is really high. The parts get worn out sooner than you can imagine for Ford Ikon ! Buy at your own risk :)
Ford Ikon petrol gives 12kmpl mileage in city while on highway it gives 16.5kmpl mileage and Ford Ikon diesel offers mileage 14kmpl in city while 17.8kmpl on highway. Almost all spares are easily available.
