Ford’s compact utility vehicle, the Ford Freestyle has been officially unveiled in India. The new Ford product gets a new Dragon petrol engine with a new gearbox and a revised suspension setup for a sportier performance. The all-new Ford Freestyle sits under the EcoSport compact SUV.

In terms of exterior, the Ford Freestyle gets a unique grille with a dynamic, three-dimensional mesh. The vehicle gets blacked-out high contrast headlamps which are complemented by fog lamp bezel, which creates a commanding expression. The inclined windshield and a sculpted rear fascia with unique tail lamps gives the Freestyle a sportier stance. The newly unveiled compact utility vehicle will also feature Ford’s in-car infotainment system, SYNC 3 with a 6.5-inch touchscreen which allows drivers to control their entertainment and their connected smartphone with voice commands. The SYNC 3 system is also Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible.

Under the hood, the new Ford Freestyle is powered by a new 1.2-litre TiVCT petrol engine which generates about 93bhp of power and 120Nm of torque. The diesel version on the other hand continues to be powered by a 1.5-litre TDCi engine which generates 97bhp of power and 215Nm of torque. In terms of safety, the vehicle gets ABS with EBD, up to six airbags and Active Rollover Prevention (ARP). Combined with Electronic Stability Control, the ARP system will be able to automatically detect potential rollover situations by applying brakes to individual tyres and decrease engine torque.
