The Ford Classic which was earlier known as the ‘Fiesta Classic’ has been launched with a host of seven new features in a limited edition model. Ford has been selling the Classic in a total of six variants, three for diesel and petrol each. The company has recently launched the celebration edition for the Figo on the occasion of its third anniversary. Now, Ford has added seven new features to its CLXi variant to lure customers from the entry level mid-size segment. The list includes –
1. The limited edition gets fog lamps on the front bumper which is missing on the standard variant and comes only with the top-end Titanium variant.
2. A new set of alloy wheels replace the stock steel rim, that is one of the major exterior upgrade on the limited edition.
3. At the rear, the body coloured boot lid over the number plate is adorned with a new chrome finish.
4. Other than the chrome finish on the boot lid, a spoiler has been placed on the boot that adds exclusivity to the limited edition model as the spoiler is not even offered on the Titanium variant.
5. The interiors get new leather seats from the top-end variant and that is the only change to the interiors.
6. The limited edition Ford Classic gets some chrome finishing. The front honeybee grille wears a chrome plated grille that was seen on the Titanium S variant.
7. To aid in safety, Ford has added reverse parking sensors.
The standard Ford Classic CLXi variant is priced at Rs. 6.29 lakhs for the petrol variant and Rs. 7.35 lakhs for the diesel variant (ex-showroom, Delhi). The added features include alloy wheels, rear spoiler and leather seats that that cost quite a bit of money to fit after market. The Ford Classic is powered by 1.4-litre diesel and 1.6-litre petrol engines and performs quite well in its segment. However being an old-school design and competition being strong from rivals, the Classic’s sales have been affected drastically. Ford sold only 413 units of the Classic last month.
