Ford Fiesta: A class of its own
The new Ford Fiesta 2014 with the Aston Martin front grill has the looks of a show stopper. It does turn quite a few heads on the roads. I've test driven every car in this in this segment i.e. Rapid, Vento, Linea, Sunny, Scala and the Honda City diesel. This is my analysis, loved the way 2nd gear torque on the Vento/ Rapid (essentially the same engine), loved the rear seating of the sunny (only and only that), loved the dashboard trim of the Linea (and also the interior ambient lighting). Then I test drove the Fiesta. It is quite up there with the engine performance of the Rapid (well just about), it has the dash is aesthetics of the Linea and technology (SYNC and other minor attention to detail features) that is unmatched in it class. The voice command operation of your phone is unparalleled. I think a special mention about the music system is befitting. It has incredibly crisp and audibly loud (no noise) sound. The rear seating is a bit cramped compared to other in it class. Ride Quality is brilliant. The suspension is very sturdy where it needs to be. On the highways, it snugs to the road.
