Without the back up of any teaser images or pre launch buzz, Ford India has unveiled its new Classic sedan 2014 in the Indian market. Boasting a wide variety of exclusive features, the car also sports an affordable price tag.
According to a report by aegindia on January 28, the car comes with fog lamps in the front, programmable keyless entry, ABS and EBD, air bags for both driver and passenger in the front, Bluetooth audio connectivity, speed sensing volume control system, rear defogger and drive away locks.
The new sedan will be available in both petrol and diesel versions. While the diesel variant comes powered with a 1.4 litre TDCi Duratorq diesel engine capable of delivering around 68 PS of power, the petrol model will is driven by a 1.6 litre Duratec petrol engine that returns 101 PS.
Vinay Piparsania, the executive director of marketing Ford India, said, “Ford Classic is a fun to drive, full-sized sedan that is renowned for its spacious cabin and fuel-efficient powertrains.
“The repositioning will make the Ford Classic an even more compelling offering for customers across India looking to move up to a great sedan. Ford India is expected to unveil the new Fiesta at the Auto Expo 2014. We are hoping that it wouldn’t repeat the mistake of pricing it too closely to a D-segment sedan.”
If you are going for it, you would need to know that the car maker has snipped prices to make it competitive in the Indian automotive marketplace. The Classic sedan 2014 base variant is priced starting from Rs. 4.99 lakh, while the top end variant would cost Rs. 7.59 lakh.
