Ford Freestyle Test Drive Review - Autoportal

  • Published: 05 April 2018
  • Ford Freestyle -

    Ford India has a great brand value in the Indian car market for its cars with classy exteriors, premium-quality interior fit and finish, and high reliability in performance. The Freestyle would be upgraded with the introduction of a new and stylish front grille, and new contours on the bonnet, fender and door panels. The interiors will have new trims and upholstery, features of bottle holders and cup holders at key locations, and the new infotainment system with touchscreen display. The new Ford Freestyle feels as a tougher and improved version of the Ford Figo. It basically competes against the likes of Hyundai i20 Active, Toyota Etios Cross, Honda WR-V and Volkswagen Cross Polo. The car will be launched in the Indian market very soon and is expected to be priced below the Hyundai Elite i20. For more watch the video above.

Best is free style worst is hundai i10. only the luxuriousness in Ford is less than hundayi and tiago. but the test drive was very tough. he drove in plane NH, turned suddenly 90 degree. braeaked suddenly from 160 km. no problem occurred. he suddenly entered in rough road with 150 km/hr. suddenly he drove downside of road to the rough field and turned 5 rounds continuously. then jumped up in the rough road again
                                                                                  i was in back sheet. no vibration. no feel of rough roads. quite balenced. after driving hundai 10 my ender bro said to compeny person " bakwas gadi" howver with price range tiagois good with luxery but for the feature like ABS and EBD the same amount is required to be invested as for base version of freestyle with EBD ABS. the engine of ford diesel is 4 cylinder 1498 cc while tata tiago is 1027 three cylinder. so clear difference of power however only mileage difference of 3 km/l. in my view ford is good. i have not tried Maruti.
