About FORD CLASSIC

The Ford Classic has an aerodynamically designed body structure featuring several attractive features. In the front, it is designed with a bold radiator grille that contours and leads to a crystal barrel headlight cluster that is incorporated with powerful headlamps and side turn indicator.

This car has a roomy internal cabin elegantly designed with dual tone color scheme. It is equipped with well cushioned seats, which are integrated with head restraints. These seats are covered with fabric upholstery and provide enough leg space and shoulder room for minimum five passengers. Its rear seat has a 100 percent folding facility, which helps in increasing the boot volume.

This series is available in both petrol and diesel engine options for the buyers to select from. The petrol variants have a 1.6-litre, In-line Duratec engine, which comes with a displacement capacity of 1596 cc. It is integrated with 4 cylinders and 16 valves using double overhead camshaft valve configuration. On the other hand, the diesel trims are powered by a 1.4-litre Duratorq motor that can displace 1399 cc. It comes with 4 cylinders and 8 valves using SOHC based valve configuration. It is skillfully coupled with the same five speed manual transmission gear box.

Unlike the Maruti Swift DZire and the Honda Amaze, the Ford Classic is built with an electronic brake force distribution, which prevents the vehicle from skidding, thus making it a safer option.

Our Verdict

If you are looking at a nice sedan, well-equipped with a range of niceties and features and all at a reasonable pricing of below INR 10 lakhs, then it is the Ford Fiesta Classic. Though, it may look a little too old, it is a perfect driver’s car that comes with some pioneering design and offers the ultimate in driving experience and visibility. The upgraded Fiesta Classic stays true to its predecessor’s design presence barring a few upgrades and variations. But, it still has a couple downsides to deal with like ground clearance and maintenance costs. But to all the Fiesta lovers’ out there, it is a praiseworthy successor and a value for money vehicle.
