Although I was a proud owner of a Ford machine, but I would suggest you to go ahead with a Swift Dzire as I found it very tough to sell my ford, as the resale of a ford is much lower than a maruti vehicle.....Otherwise a ford car is really a pleasure to drive....and its pickup and power is really good as well.....But the interiors of Ford are dated as compared to a Dzire....but I havent seen the Ford Diesel from inside.......

My recommendation - Go for Dzire...

I was an ex user of Ford for 6 years. first is your reqt of car, as per you annual driving you should go for a petrol car.
In petrol U need to take a call Ford is what the US cops also use( proving their toughness etc) and one of the most established cars and economical. Dezire is end of the day Indian brand so the associated advantage of low maint, but huge disadvantage of delivery period etc. My opinion would be if budget is uptill 5 then ikon if till 6 + the Fiesta

Between the two cars you mentioned. According to the run of the vehicle, I recommend you an petrol driven car. Ford is known for high maintainance costs and the diesel engine under the hood of ford is noisy. I prefer you go for swift dezire VXi. Happy shopping. Bye

Given your usage and budget go for the DZire Vxi. Zxi would be more than 6 lakhs. Ford vehicles are excellent but don't command resale value and are expensive to maintain

Sir thanks for the reliability you have entrusted on me. If you based in a city where the Dealer is also located it is good with both the cars but Swift Desire has an edge over Ikon. If Ford company is not in your locality forget it totally. 7000 km / Annum - I pray you can dismiss the car idea and walk a bit.
Good Luck,

Mr.Sankar,
You can better go for Maruti Dezire since the maintenace cost of ford ikon may be higher as there are not many service stations dealing with Ford care. Moreover as your plying distance is abysmalyy low, better go for petrol cars

Hi,

Take a test drive of both the cars, Chose the one which you feel good in handling. Please verify the spare parts price and maintainance cost of the new Ikon TDCI as it is now very compititive to Maruti. In 1 word i proudly say that i'm the owner of New Ford Ikon Diesel. till now i run 22,000 km and spent only 4,100 for servicings(3 services). Go to any of the ford service centre for comparing spare parts prices with maruti

Regards,
Vijay Bhaskar
