Ford Freestyle Mind Blowing Cross Hatch
Ford Freestyle is currently the new sensation these days. I got the chance to read about the most happening and stylish compact utility vehicle (CUV), as Ford calls it. The hatchback based crossover from Ford is arriving soon in India and it?s of course, the first of its kind. Going through all its features and specifications makes me feel that the car will surely bring loads of success for the manufacturer. The company has decided to launch the car on April 26. It?s SUV-ish like robust design, versatile features and powerful engines are made to uplift the freestyle spirit. In terms of style, the front looks of the vehicle resemble that of Figo, though its new radiator grille makes it more distinctive, fog lamps gets c-shaped surrounds, faux skid plates on both the ends and black plastic cladding all around along with wheel arches provide the vehicle SUV like feel. The cross-hatch version of the Ford Figo promises a lot more than just customary body cladding and higher ground clearance.
Interiors too are shared with the Figo hatchback, the car features 6.5-inch touchscreen unit equipped with SYNC 3.0 from Ford that also supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The car also gets standout features such as Ford MyKey that allows the driver to set speed limit, as well as seatbelt reminder for both driver and co-passengers. For better safety, the top-spec model gets 6 airbags, Hill Hold Assist, Electronic stability program, traction control and Active rollover protection or ARP feature. Mechanically, Ford Freestyle will be available in both petrol and diesel engine options - the 1.2L Dragon petrol mill is the newly developed engine, company claims that the engine makes about 95bhp of power and 120Nm of torque. Its 1.5L diesel powertrain is borrowed from Figo. It generates the power output of 100bhp and peak torque of 215Nm. However, lack of automatic option will disappoint many prospective buyers. All remains is the pricing, with all the new additions in terms of looks, equipment level and performance, we can expect it to be priced Rs. 1 lakh above Figo hatchback. Many would be eagerly waiting how the competition of Ford Freestyle vs Hyundai i20 Active will look like.
