Summary

Ford Classic, a Sedan has 6 versions available in India. Ford Classic has 3 Petrol cars and 3 Diesel cars. Other popular cars in the similar price range of Ford Classic are Honda Amaze. Ford Classic comes in 6 colours, namely, Chill Metalic, Diamond White, Moondust Silver, Panther Black, Paprika red, Smoke Grey.

With an aim to improve its market shares, Ford India introduced the Classic, the downsized version of the Fiesta, in 2011. The saloon looks exactly same as the old Fiesta, except for the new badge. It features an aggressive honeycomb grille, pronounced wheel arches, headlights, beefy side panels and alloys, mounted tail lamps and various other styling elements. The interior design and components are borrowed from the Figo hatchback. It’s comfortable and spacious, though the rear seats are little congested. The sedan has plenty of features to offer, but misses out on some important features such as steering mounted audio controls and electrically adjustable mirrors. It is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. The 1.6-litres, 1596cc, Duratec petrol engine churns out a maximum power output of 101bhp with 146Nm of torque, while the 1.4-litre, 1399cc Duratorq TDCi diesel engine is good for 68bhp and 160Nm. The diesel powertrain is boosted with Ford’s Dura technology that offers better acceleration, fuel efficiency and drive experience. The saloon is among the most fuel efficient Ford cars in India delivering a mileage of 15.3kmpl (petrol) and 20kmpl (diesel). Handling and driving dynamics are excellent. Overtaking is effortless, thanks to the short gear ratio and efficient gearshift.

Price

The various fuel trims in Ford Classic are priced differently. The Diesel trims are priced between Rs. 6,76,806/- to Rs. 8,03,460/-. The Petrol trims of Ford Classic start at Rs. 5,36,776/-.

Exterior

The sedan looks identical to the old Fiesta. At the front end, it sports honeycomb grille, headlights, bonnet and pronounced wheel arches.  The muscular side panels and alloy wheel add more its exterior appearance. The 15-inches alloys are available on the top-end model, while the base and mid-level trims get steel wheels. The rear profile is simple and neat. It features a rear bumper, mounted tail lamps and a small boot.

Interior

The interior of the saloon is inspired from the Figo, especially the three spoke steering, audio system and knobs. Seats are comfortable with ample legroom, though, the rear seat is bit restricted. Driver seat is height adjustable. The saloon comes loaded with plenty of comfort-enhancing features. But, being a downsized version of the old Fiesta, it lacks some important equipment such as electrically adjustable mirrors and steering mounted audio controls. Fit and finish are flawless, but plastic quality isn’t up to the mark.

Engine and Transmission

The saloon is available in two engine options - a 1.6-litre Duratec petrol and a 1.4-litre Duratorq diesel. The 1.6-litres, 1596cc, Duratec gasoline unit develops a maximum power of 101bhp at 6500rpm with a peak torque of 146Nm at 3400rpm. The 1.4-litre, 1399cc Duratorq TDCi diesel engine delivers a maximum power of 68bhp at 400rpm, while yielding a torque of 160Nm at 2000rpm. The diesel powertrain is boosted with Ford’s Dura technology, offering a DuraVroom acceleration, DuraSave fuel efficiency and DuraSmooth drive experience. Both the engines are coupled with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Performance and Handling

Just like other Ford car models the Classic too is an absolute fun to drive car. Driving dynamics and handling are simply superb as the old Fiesta. Engines’ performance is brilliant across different rev range. However, the diesel motor gets noisy at low revs. It takes 11.5 seconds to achieve 100kmph from standstill. The steering is quick and smooth and the ride quality is impressive, too.

Braking System

There is nothing to complain about its braking performance. It is equipped with front ventilated disc brakes and rear drum brakes, while the advanced ABS (Antilock brake system) with EBD (Electronic brake-force distribution) are available only on the top-end model.

Mileage

The 1399 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 14 kmpl in city and 18 kmpl on highways, while the Petrol variant offers a mileage of 14 kmpl on urban roads and 18 kmpl and freeways, respectively.

Safety features

The sedan comes equipped with several safety features such as ABS (Antilock Brake System) with EBD (Electronic Brake-Force Distribution), airbag (on driver’s seat), ELR (Emergency locking retractor), child lock, anti-theft engine immobilizer, fuel cut-off in case of a collision, anti submarine seats, central locking and few more. One must note that all aforementioned features vary model-wise.

Verdict

The Fiesta Classic is one of the most fun-to-drive Ford cars in India, especially the petrol model. It’s frugal, quick and efficient than most of its rivals.

Competition

Ford Classic Vs Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire

The Ford Classic is a proper sedan with simple and neat design. It’s comfortable from inside, but lacks some important features. The rear seats have limited legroom, too. The Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire, on the other hand, with over-hanged boot doesn’t look good. The interior of the Swift Dzire is more comfortable and feature-rich interior than its rival. The Classic’s petrol engine is more refined, frugal and powerful than the Dzire’s. Though, the Dzire’s diesel engine is more powerful, punchy and refined than the Fiesta’s.

  • Refined engines
  • Fuel economy
  • Impressive handling and driving dynamics
  • Ride quality
  • Competitive pricing
