Pros : Looks, Good handling and performance

Cons : Less boot space, excessively priced

Look and Style One month ago I owned the new upgraded variant of Ford Fiesta. I have owned this car as I am very much impressed with the design of the car. The all new Ford Fiesta has a sporty and classy looks. The exterior of the car is more aerodynamic than its previous version. Comfort  Talking about the comfort although the interiors of new Ford Fiesta provides all the comfort of a sedan class, but they are not at the best. The only feature which impressed me is the display screen at the centre of the dashboard which displays the complete information about my mobile calls, music and air conditioning. Pickup The pick up of the car is fine. I didn't face any problem to drive it at the speed of 140 Kms on the highway. It took only 13 seconds to reach form nil to the the mark of 100 Kms. Mileage My new Ford Fiesta is a diesel variant and it offers me the fuel efficiency of 18.5 kmpl on the city roads and 20 Kmpl on the highway roads. Best Features Talking about the Ford Fiesta features I am very much impressed with the looks and appearance. I really fall in love with it looks. Apart form looks the performance and the handling of the car is very excellent and up to the mark of Ford brand. Needs to improve  Although the handling and performance of the car is great but Ford India has put the Ford Fiesta price very high. Ford has to drop the price and make it affordable to all the customers. Along with this I am also not satisfied with the boot space provided by Ford in this new sedan Ford Fiesta, the boot space is very less. Overall Experience On a whole Ford Fiesta review as a car is a luxury car but is priced a little higher.

    ranger64 |30 Oct,2011 11:13:23 PM

    buy the fluidic or honda if u looking for value for money or if u are a family man...but if value for money is not ur kind of a thing then the ford fiesta should be your first choice..

    viresh |30 Nov,2011 11:14:29 AM

    i guess a lot of people consider looks as primary in India..If I can invent Vernas looks everything of Ford Fiesta...i can come out with a top selling car..Any one for Cheers ..

    New Ford and New Verna are both sleek, aerodynamic and come with loads of goodies in the top end version, but the clinching point towards the Fiesta is its response and handling at high speeds. If anybody with a sedan gets a stretch of empty highway upto a distant next signal, the natural tendency is to push the car to 80 kmph. Now the fiesta has a responsive steering while in all the reviews of the Verna, the complaint was of a dead steering feedback giving you no idea where the car will go on the next turn of the steering giving you a feeling of loss of control of the vehicle, so much so, that even the test driver of one major car mag review was so afraid to take the car again for a repeat highspeed test. So, if you are a slow driver go for the Verna with the high-tech features and if you enjoy picking up speed in an instant and dont want to feel scared about doing that, then go for the Fiesta with its gizmo's.

    Dr. Venugopal, The New Fiesta's engine not that responsive as that of the Classic. Neither is its steering feed back. I'm not telling it does not have them. But compared to the New Fiesta, Classic has better drivability. Thought the car has so many goodies, it can still be priced 1-2 lacs less. The customer buying a car at this range generally will look at comfort which this car throws away its crown to Verna. In this price range, the appx age of the customer will be from 35 above. They'll generally be looking for a decent looking car. The Fiesta is looking too sporty. With such sporty design, i can't understand why Ford gave such small engines. Don't say mileage, coz its a sporty car. Person buying this type of car at this price point can afford to refuel even if the car gives a little less mileage. Overall i feel, Verna is a better buy.

  • kirsten dsouza |07 Sep,2011 08:13:36 PM

    i own a ford fiesta since 4years and trust me this car is totally amazing. I love the appearance, its comfort and all the features that the company provides. I experienced that the ford spare parts are really expensive but that shudnt be taken into consideration as it is such a minute expense yu'll have to bear with when you go for a an expensive car like the ford fiesta. Speaking about the control, ford has kept it upto the mark... Controlling is amazing. It gives me a mileage upto 16-17kmpl even today on an average which is remarkable. Ford has provided enough safety measures with this car and includes a safety tool that forms the most basic form of the safety measure which people often do not take into consideration. It has a very strong body. I met with an accident, was in a speed of 100-120 and result of d accident is - bonet bend, intercooler damage, front bumpers destroyed, and the windshield broke. Thats it!! I was completly safe.... Not even a single scratch on me!! people say it is not worth the money we pay for it but in my opinion ford s a genuine company and puts all the good quality materials in the car and as a result have to sell the car at a higher price, unlike others. Ford Fiesta is one of the most amazing vehicle i have ever seen in a range of 8-10 lakhs!!

    Rajesh |14 Mar,2012 08:18:02 PM

    well said Mr.kirsten... if anyone wants safe driving and enjoy speed at the same time. then go for FORD fiesta....

  • Bhaskar Reddy |10 Sep,2011 11:07:54 AM

    Looks are very good love to own the car But price is bit high

  • Shaj |18 Dec,2011 01:08:31 AM

    If ford brings the price tag of ford fiesta starting from 7lacs, boo om all the other C segment cars will put the shutter down. And ford can see the magic what ford fiesta classic has shown to them in Indian market as Leader and made 100000 cars sales and still in demand. I have ford fiesta classic if the fiesta comes with that price i will buy that too for me. Ford Family. Waiting for FORD MAGIC FIGURES ON Ford Fiesta Petrol Style.As Verna & Honda city has already reduced to survive to sustain. Only AT version can sell at 8lacs above in future.

  • raj |05 Jan,2012 01:44:06 PM

  • anu saggi |19 Mar,2012 10:30:01 PM

    just fel in luv with AT ford titanium gives immense driving spleasure. no doubt price heavy n rear not spacy but the BEST gud looking sedan! definately want to test drive again n surely be the proud owner.

  • Vivek |22 Mar,2012 11:06:01 PM

    hey .. for all those who think ford spares are costly.. here is one news for u ppl... ford has adopted new strategy to reduce cost of spares..In its effort to reduce ownership costs, Ford has adopted the child parts approach. To give you an example of the child parts approach, if the solenoid of your starter fails, you do NOT need to change the entire starter assembly. Rather, Ford will sell you only the solenoid assembly (which will, of course, cost only a fraction of that for the entire starter). also its well evident that ford has increased the number of dealerships in many indian cities.. go u can surely opt for ford to enjoy best driving and world class technology... cheers !!

    Hi, I am planning to by a sedan car (Diesel), but totally confused after reading the reviews of Verna and New ford fiesta. All I understand form the review is 1) Verna Fludic is better that New Ford fiesta - Titanium 2) New Ford fiesta - Titanim is priced high. 3) Capacity of verna is better than Ford. What do I do now ? Can anybody guide me.
