      A BLACK Ford Fiesta Classic 1.4 Diesel

      Sorry guys for the delay in my post. Here are some of the pics of my new Fiesta, finished 3 months 5000 KMS. Just one word - Amazing !!

      So it started in January 2012 that we decided to buy a new sedan, looking through various cars, economy was in our mind and sedans in option were

      - Linea, Manza, Fiesta, Chevy Aveo, Etios, Swift

      We decided Fiesta because of below reasons that we liked: Economy, Interiors, Decent design, reliability, Name ( Ford fiesta is a known brand in India), Music System, Discount and again Economy, Color availability.

      We got 2011 model and got heavy discount of 80K. Doesnt really matter to us coz we wanted a sedan, 1 month old was fine with us. Total it costed us 8 Lacs for CLXi Model on road in Hyd.

      My family is on the spot buyer, we do not do much of research in buying a car, if we like it and the name is good, we will buy it. I did lot of research for our first car and unfortunately it did not turn out to be a good experience. So this time we decided that we will buy what we like rather than what online reviews say. We dicided to go with the gut feel. and somehow I feel that its worked for my family. Again this is personal opinion.

      We were still deciding on test drives, this guy from Ford comes with a fiesta for a test drive, we go for a test drive of 3-4 kms, he offers us heavy discount of 80K because of old model and tells that there is only one Sea Grey color left. After checking with his manager for a phone call he says sea grey is gone, Panther Black is left and this is the last model (which I know he was lying ) But as I said we are on the spot buyers, my father said give us a final deal, he calls his manager and reduces another 10K as we have to compromise on color. Deal is done. We give him 10K as booking amount and tell him that we are coming day after tomorrow to take the car.

      2 Days later, car is at home. Total it costed 8 lacs exact including insurance basic accessories. I did not take the car to any accessory shop, neither I intend to take in future. I feel accessories shops just screw the factory fitted stuff. So my car does not have a sigle piece extra fitted apart from the number plate. Its as receive from showroom. Till today after 5K kms. and I plan to keep it like this for atleast 2 year.

      Performance and Mileage

      Performance
      - 68 BHP looks underpowered but its fine for me, coming from petrol i10 to fiesta 1.4 D. I liked Fiesta, the turbo feel of Diesel and noise kind of pumps me up. I am 27. My dad does complain that what is this sound like tractor but he is fine as the car's tank is full in 1700 Ruppes. So he doesnt complain.
      Pickup is enough for me. I mostly ride single. So issues with pick, I enjoy.

      Handling - Excellent, this is a drivers car, zooms across U turns.

      Economy - Excellento, this was the main reason why we bought Fiesta 1.4 Diesel. 20+ on highway, I am getting 16-18 in city depending on driving pattern. 100% AC on always.

      Music system - At par, or even better than Figo, no accessories required. Excellent Bass and treble. I have connected my Android phone via Aux In. However I miss the remote control.

      AC - Good, because of Black and no Tints in windows, it takes time to cool when its 43 Dgrees C outside these days. Which I feel is ok because its plain glass and Black attracts heat. In evening / normal weather, AC at 1 also becomes too cool.

      Design - you wont believe, I like this design more than any other sedan in this range. (8-10 lacs) for Diesel. The new headlamps look beautiful. you will notice that in my pics. Moreover overall side design is another thing which I like. It gives a good feel of Sedan. if we look from side. See pics also.

      Black color on this car just adds to the design. Black front grill goes well with Black exterior color. and Black Interiors just add up the overall show making the total scene just mindblowing for me. I am in love !

      Congrats on your new ride. Trust me, your heart was 100% bang on in picking up this GEM of a beauty. You will never regret this decision (touchwood). I know cause i have this car from 6 years now with more than 1lakh Kms on it and still going strong. Infact i am planning to sell my Fiesta diesel and buy a pertrol one...this shows how lovely this car is to drive. This 68 bhp will never let you down and its a boon in city. Now other car pulls like she does.

      Once again, a big congrats and enjoy her to the fullest.

      Congrats on the new car man. If you have any queries or doubts regarding ford products then you can contact me. I am always available on gearheads. Good to see you here and nice pics.


      Its a pure drivers car.

      PS - Remove the "fortune ford" stickers from the back, spoils the looks and acts as a marketing tool for the dealer.
