Introduce

The faceless beauty is a double-edged sword.

Introduce

Everyone and their aunts and uncles are now looking bự buy a diesel car, because the lower fuel cost and better efficiency make you happy every time you see the price of gas at the pump station. Ford has realized that customers are willing bự pay a premium for a vehicle that can give them a good return on fuel efficiency, and has provided the Indian consumer with a sense of costs Ford Fiesta diesel, an engine that has earned a formidable reputation for fuel efficiency. We have the ‘Go Fida’ experience, but with an oil burner under the bonnet.

Exterior

New folding headlights and revised bumpers add character

Exterior

The Fiesta’s looks have improved recently, and while the tăng cấp doesn’t have as much of an impact as on the 1.6 S, it’s still an improvement. We don’t like the “SXi” stickers on that variant that look a bit overdone for a vehicle with a refined look. The traditional saloon shape remains the same, so if looks are too much of an issue for you, you’ll be better served by the newer Honda City with its futuristic silhouette. The flip side of the conservative and generic design is that it won’t offend anyone. The Focus-ish grille, large front headlights and revised bumper give it a bit of character at the front.

Furniture, Facilities

Plenty of space and driving position on the spot. We like.

inland

The cabin feels nice and airy thanks bự the beige seats and door fabric. Seat covers tend bự strip fibers or rags from your clothes, so don’t be surprised bự see a slight bluish tinge on the seats if you’re driving around in your lovely blue suede shoes. his likes! The circular air-conditioning vents can cool the cabin briefly, but the ZXi trim, which we tested, omits the audio system, which we missed a lot after the experience. Experiment with the 1.6 S. sides are tough, but feel like they’re built bự last. That said, we had the same little squeak from the front right and were wondering if it was just the press team (with previous abuse) or this is a regular problem. We’d love bự get some feedback from you if you’ve experienced this hiss.

The instrumentation is easy bự read, but the red color of the needle could be a bit less intense bự cater for those with sensitive eyes. A good driving position can be achieved relatively easily with the available adjustments – the steering wheel is tilted but without the telescope. The gearshift takes a bit of a long throw, but no less enjoyable because of that fact. It snaps into place neatly and no vibrations penetrate through the gear lever.

There is ample leg room for people sitting in the front row, and the rear seats also have ample leg room. There are various places bự keep change, keys, wallets, etc around the cabin, and even the back door has slim pockets that one can use bự keep maps. The trunk is quite large, but the width of the medium at the bottom means you’ll have bự lift your bag high before you put it inside the boot. And be careful not bự let your suitcase scratch the wonderful paint on the bumpers and sills!

Engine, Powertrain, Fuel Efficiency

Energetic engine but also fuel efficient!

Engine

The highlight of the Fiesta TDCi, the DuraTorq engine, is made of aluminum and has a capacity of 1399cc through four in-line cylinders. It is a turbocharged unit and uses common-rail direct injection bự produce 68bhp @ 4000rpm and 160Nm @ 2000rpm. That horsepower figure doesn’t sound like it will ignite any flames, but more torque more than makes up for it. The turbocharger works so gradually that there doesn’t seem bự be any lag – and it clearly pulls right bự the edge. The engine is smooth at low revs and has a bit of a hum near the red line, but it’s one of the better diesels we’ve come across. The gruff note when it sings near the red line is quite pleasant! The long shift lever is easy bự use and the gear ratios match the engine. Higher revs are important in achieving good fuel efficiency figures.

Energy saving

Fiesta has lived up bự its reputation as a petty thief by returning 14.4kpl per liter of sticky stuff. This, despite the fact that we like bự drive this car quickly and don’t hesitate bự put the pedals into the metal. When we watched for ourselves, it delivered above 18kpl, and during our fuel economy performance testing it refused bự drop below 9.6kpl. Very commendable indeed.

Ride & Handling, Steering

The view that we like the most about this car.

Ride and Handling, Steering

In keeping with the car’s pleasant personality, the suspension is tuned for comfort. Low-speed rides can get through a few larger potholes, but this means handling will take a hit. The car is stable at high speeds and the steering is responsive, although we would have liked a softer feel from the wheel. The Fiesta manages bự strike a good balance between swallowing craters and giving you good handling, but that said, a competitor like the Verna has better ride quality without sacrificing too much. much in terms of handling.

Brakes, Tires, Safety

ABS is not an option. Now we are hearing like a broken tape recorder.

Tire

MRF ZV2Ks with size 175/65 R14 connect DuraTorq bự the road. The grip levels aren’t terribly high, but we’re sure they play a big part in that fuel economy figure. They’re pretty quiet at speed, though we wish they possessed a slightly softer compound. It will definitely help the trip.

Safety

The top-end variant, the SXi, has ABS and dual airbags, but the ZXi we tested doesn’t. We want them bự be options.

Cost, Overall Rating

At the gas pump point is where the owner is happiest.

Cost

Rs 7.9 lakh makes you one of the most fuel efficient cars in India. However, for that price you can get much more interesting cars, but the thing is, they are all gas cars. The only real competition it has is from Verna CRDi and caters bự a slightly different audience. The Fiesta can also be affected by its sibling when the DuraTorq engine appears in Ikon. The Ikon will be significantly cheaper than the Fiesta, so it is expected that Ford has a clear marketing strategy for its cars in India.

If there’s one thing Fiesta owners are happy about, it’s in the fuel pump. This car looks like it runs on smoke. However, major maintenance or repair jobs will take away that smile – parts aren’t cheap and Ford’s service isn’t the best yet. This is one of the big reasons why so many people still stay away from Uncle Henry’s brand. However, Ford has informed us that they have researched this aspect of the vehicle. We will update you as soon as we have the necessary information.

Overall rating

The blue oval has always made for good riders, and even though it’s a frugal diesel, you’ll enjoy driving it because under the skin it’s a true luxury car. driver. We’ll find out if there’s a performance chip for this motor that boosts the output power, so stay tuned!

Useful contacts

  • Bright headlights
  • Pull-out cup holder

Painful touches

  • ABS is not an option
  • There is no factory-installed stereo system on the ZXi.
