ShivShanker Sir,
Is there any difference between the new ford Ikon & older version. Company has uplifted the exterior looks very similar to the fiesta. I want to know whether Driving Experience has improved in the New Ikon. I had Ikon 1.3 Nxt petrol few years back & I loved that car. Due to some superstitious reasons I sold it & bought Swift VXI. I really miss a sedan and want another new car. I have short listed Swift Dezire Vxi & New Ikon Petrol. Firstly I also short listed Accent Executive but it has very low sitting & very difficult for a 6 ft tall man to get in & out of this car.
I am very confused between the two cars. Which one to buy. I don't like the looks of Dezire as it has very odd shape body. Just look like Fatty with big bumps. But I am also afraid about the maintenance charges of Ikon. I have daily city driving about 15 kms & 300Kms on highway once in a month. What would be average in city & on highway of Ikon Petrol (with A.C. on). Please clear my confusion so that I can make the right decision. What would be yearly maintenance charges to keep Ikon in good shape.
I would like to know what would the final cost (on road price) of two cars & is Ikon good for future (referring it as very old model, I have romours that Ikon would be phased out from market in next 5 to 6 years). Awaiting for a quick reply from the ultimate car expert Mr. Shiv Shanker.

The new ford Ikon comes with Fiesta Engine and exterior face lift is done.Yes it is equally difficult to choose between New Ikon and Dzire.Dzire has advantage of cheaper maintenance cost than New Ikon. But Performance of New Ikon is better and body syle is also quite impressive.
Though Ikon will not be phased out completely the demand for Ikon has come down drastically due to competition with new launches.
Ford will be comming up with New Fiesta in near future but the price range is not know.With the existing marke trend the expected price should be around 6 to 8 lac.
Considering the expected usage for around five years, It will be worth going for a Fiat Linea than Ikon.
Overall If you are willing to buy a sedan urgently then Fiat Linea will be best.If you want to go for Ford car then it will be worth waiting or a while for new vesrion of Fiesta.
