  • Pros: Ride and handling is really good. Stability on highways over 130 kmph. Excellent mileage. Great Automatic climate control cools the entire cabin in no time even in a sunny day very minimal body roll I cant even notice body roll over 100 kmph on highways. Excellent stearing control feeling really confident while driving over 120 kmph. Interior plastic quality on the top model. Rear seat leg room and comfort with the arm rest. good under thigh support in both the front and rear seat perfectly suitable for long journalese. Torguey and powerful engine
  • Cons: Lack of lumbar support on the driver annd co passenger seat however it is suitable for 150-200 km continuous rides but beyond that you may need a lumbar support to be bought. Audio control on the strearing wheel lacks Play pause buttons also misses the call button but it is not a deal breaker. Engine noise creeps into the cabin beyond 110 kmph however most of you wont drive at this speed so no need to worry and on lower speed you will not hear the diesel engine noice. Tier noice is noticable but not much again on higer speed of over 100 kmph it is audible. little bit heavy clutch but expected in a diesel car
I bought this beast recently and driven around 5000 km within 50 days. excellent car to drive on highways. the AC cools every corner of the cabin in no time even during a sunny day. from 50 kmph on the 5th gear. you dont need to change the gear at all on the highways. Mileage- Driven 60 percent on highways and 40 percent in chennai traffic for ex one fine day to drive 45 km it took 2.50 hrs in the traffic. in the high ways average speed. 80 kmph - 27 kmpl. 90kmph - 25 kmpl. 100kmph - 23 kmpl and at 120kmph - 20-21kmpl so in general it varies how we are driving so far never crossed 2800 - 3000 RPM. In Traffic - always gives me 20-22 kmpl (given that 100bhp and 1500cc of the engine it is a best figure) You may need quick gear changes in the fast moving traffic say 30-50 kmph. in slow moving traffic I think 1st and 2nd gear provides enough speed say 10-20 kmph Stearing prvides good feedback and feels little bit havy on the higher speed and lighter on the lower speeds Center locking is provide with manual and automatic (it locks the door when the vehicle crosses 10-20 kmph speed). however there is no child lock for the rear doors so at any point any one from the rear can unlock the doors. Paint qaulity and exterior styling is good.Cabin space is excellent. As far as my experience with a particular ford dealer wher I bough the car wa so far good and service also was good Overall I would say for 8.35 lakhs on raoad (Diesel Titanium) its a perfect value for money deal
