Ford Classic (2012 - 2015) Overview

There are BMWs, Audis, Ferraris and Bugattis in the world but the place Ford has is definitely one of a kind. Call it the Model T effect or the fact that they initiated the now ubiquitous assembly line manufacturing, Ford is on the fore front of modern consumer automobile manufacturing and the customers always have a special place for their cars in their mind.
So when such a company comes up with a car that is christened as an affordably Sedan, the world is all ears. And when such a car is being offered in one of the most booming automobile markets of the world, it is definitely a head turner. The car in discussion is the Ford Classic. Earlier named as Ford Fiesta Classic, it is eventually changed as Ford Classic as a standalone product. This car is offered with six variants both petrol and diesel fuel options. The petrol variants are offered with a four cylinder in line 16 valve DOHC engine while the diesel variants are offered with a four cylinder in line 8 valve SOHC engine. Touted to be offered with a first in class Bluetooth system, the car is reasonably priced and is expected to be a game changer in the Indian automobile industry.

Ford Classic (2012 - 2015) Exterior

Ford Classic offers a simple exterior posture without much to do in terms of features or aerodynamic agility. The vehicle is an economical sedan that packs quite a few features that help the vehicle get along on Indian roads with ease and the company kept it to that.
The front fascia features the front grill that has a honey comb design and the Ford logo decorates in gently on it. The bumper however features air vents over which the nameplate is positioned with fog lamps on either end. The car comes with crystal barrel headlamps, radiator grille surround, driver and passenger mirrors and stylish turn indicator on the outside rear view mirror.

The audio streaming, call logs, call controls such as swapping, hold, mute and phone features such as SMS notification, full phonebook access and privacy mode are all restricted to the titanium variant. The interiors also feature air conditioning with heater facility on all the variants.

The interior spacing is comfortable with ample leg room which is evident from the 4282 mm length of the vehicle. The 1468 mm height also gives a hint at the generous head room provided with the vehicle. With a boot space of 430 litres and a fuel tank capacity of 45 litres, the vehicle is a true winner when it comes to the interior comforts.

The car comes with power steering with tilt adjustable steering and other minor features which however would not significantly affect the driving experience of the vehicle.

What do we think about Ford Classic (2012 - 2015)?

Priced at 4.88 lakhs, the car is expected to give at least ABS if not airbags. Keeping these features only to the high end is not totally appreciable. However other features in mind, the Ford Classic is indeed a Classic car to ride and the drive in general is rather smooth and refined. So go for this car but only after you checked Honda Amaze, which is more compact than this and a tad cheaper for similar features.

Ford Classic (2012 - 2015) Competitors

Ford Classic faces fierce competition from Chevrolet Sail, Toyota Etios and Honda City. However another latest competitor to the Ford Classic is the recently popular Honda Amaze that is conquering the compact Sedan market one car at a time.
