Thanks guys was very skeptical of the topic.. but you liked ...
This is an opposite case i need to pay dowry(that too a lot) sob..
Ill let you guys whom i will be marrying
wait a few posts ill let you know...
This is every Indian mans dream,
It goes like this..
Its ok if the girl looks average,
but she must have a decent job,
she must know how to cook(like: i am fed up eating outside.. )
she must have a good heart.
she must understand very well,
she must be romantic,
she must look after my parents well,
must be from a good family,
must not be a expensive shopper..
goes on and on...
Well too much to expect from a girl
Well i guess its not too difficult with this car:
Here comes the figo :
Again subjective ,but from my point of view its plane jane..
nothing to write home about. an old platform sharing tail lights from fusion,from from fiesta(almost not exactly).
No flowing lines but with some make up(er alloys) she looks ok.
No other car i drove except vista matches its space , actually i was super comfortable other that any car. seating is good with good lumbar support,back seat is good but a little hard .
Gizmos : it has HU in exi and titanium. and blue tooth in titanium. oem
stereos are very good ..
Interiors : interiors are good with overall good looking plastics, but i hate that pink dash. rest is very good at that price.
Safety : abs
and airbags in top end variants
I drove petrol and diesel..
ill pen down the engines first.
Petrol : the engine is good for a 1.2 litre engine but nowhere refined as k series but good. with ac on there was noticeable difference, but i felt underpowered.. good for a small family of average build but not for heavy builds like me.
Diesel : This is the pick of both the engines, i can see that in sales too 60% are diesel..
well as every one knows this engine has near to zero turbo lag.
has very good grunt in mid range can easily zip around the traffic overtaking.
Handling : this car looks so small but handles like a dream, good feed back from the steering and most of all the view of the road you can have a clear view of the road ..
and special mention about the ac of the car . i think so its a refrigerator
saying this because i put the blower at 2 my cousin at the back and sales lady next to me were pleading to switch off the ac after 5 minute drive.
i got my hands numb after that.. petrol was not that effective as diesel.
suspension is good ab absorbs the potholes well..
This one car has all the things a normal man expects from a car
ford has made their homework very well that is indeed reflected in their sales.
diesel is very good for mileage drivability.
Is this the car i am going for??
This car is like jack of all but king of none.(well except ac)
drive the 69 bhp is good till 80 -100 but after that it loses steam we can reach 120 but it takes time. it doesnt have the fun factor.
the suspension is very low with 3 people at the back it scrapes almost all the speed breakers in Bangalore.
looks are ok ,lack of power windows at rear and small 14'' tires are a little negatives from my side.
plus its too low seating is not so impressive.
plastics looks good but i thinks so its brittle like the chinese toys looks good from outside but a samll fall and it breaks into pieces, i saw some door edge plastics cracked in the demo vehicle when i trie pulling it it mad e me feel its not so hard.
but its sheer absolute value for money if you are on a budget. and titanium is the one to go for.
