Ford is also promising low costs of ownership for the Freestyle

Ford claims its spare parts cost up to 20% lesser than those of similarly priced hatchbacks, and also that the Freestyle’s service interval is the highest in class at 10,000 kms. Not that I felt the need to take it to the shop, from a buyer’s perspective, it is good to have some doubts out of the park.

Buyers looking for a feature-loaded and fun crossover will love the Freestyle

What’s Cool

* Punchy performing petrol engine
* Excellent dynamics and driving position
* Responsive and intuitive infotainment system
* Low maintenance costs

What’s Not So Cool

* Fuel efficiency goes down if you drive spiritedly
* Rear seat space could have been better

Would you buy a crossover over a compact SUV?
