Applink sync connectivity system has been used in this fresh lot. This allows drivers to use voice commands to play their favorite music, controlling mobile application and making phone calls. Moreover, Ice Blue lighting on the switches, dials and displays gives it a distinctive appeal. On the exterior front, the car features trapezoidal grille that gives it a sportier stance. The headlamps are smoothly crafted to flow into the sides of this car and the bigger bonnet gives it a muscular stance. At the rear, the tails lights have been tweaked to make it look bigger and bolder. Ford has not officially revealed the pricing for this car.
