Pros : Great looks and performance

Cons : None

I really want to give loads of credit to the Ford people for launching a sedan in the price range of approx. 6 Lakhs, where in today's environment even the hatchbacks cost no less than 7-8 Lakhs. The car has got great looks, which certainly is the first feature that an Indian mind looks while making a car purchase decision. The car is a common car on Indian roads and I don't think it would need any introduction to its exterior looks, thus I am primarily going to focus on the performance of the car. I have made a few outings with the car as well and it performed absolutely brilliantly. The driving is so damn comfortable that your arm never gets tensed. There is enough of comfort in terms of the sitting posture it provides and the head and arm rests. The steering control is very smooth and makes the handling easy, fun and enjoyable. I do feel that Ford should come up with more color schemes for the car as the current range of colors is not so very impressive. As the price range is low, you would not get any important safety features like ABS and air bags, but for me the fact that I was buying sedan in the price range of a hatchback was sufficient. I love my Ford Ikon and would like to suggest you all as well.

    The New Ikon from Ford, a full option sedan model in the price range of hatcback, is very charming car that any youth can dream to own. I had a test drive of it and satisfied with its looks, performance and handling.... I have booked the car and waiting to explore the city and highways and hills very soon....

    dear all, no doubt ikon tdci is a good car, but few startling facts remain like the engine still is BS III compliant which company is not out rightly telling its prospective buyers, and there is no plans of upgrading engine in near future. Current norms are BS IV and in that way the engine is inferior at least on paper which means a lower resale value. Ikon has good mileage but maintenance cost is still higher in comparison to maruti, tata and hyundai. Interior space is just ok. I suggest if you are a diehard enthusiast then go for ikon, but if you can do practical planning then indigo ecs is the best option considering the price, mileage, space, superior engine (CR4 BSIV), features and total VFM.I too wanted to buy ikon diesel but after researching for one month both on internet and talking to experts i zeroed on Indigo ecs ELX. I hope you will make a good decision.

    Please dont withdraw Ford Ikon from Indian roads just because the sales graph is not satisfactory....
