Ford Freestyle would be manufactured at the company's Sanand plant. The Figo-based cross-hatch is available in four trims - Ambiente, Trend, Titanium, and Titanium+ - with the option of a petrol and a diesel engine.

On the Left Vinay Raina, executive director of marketing, sales and service, Rahul Gautam VP-sales and marketing and on the right Anurag Mehrotra, managing director of Ford IndiaNew Delhi: Ford on Thursday launched Freestyle, a compact utility vehicle (CUV) for the Indian consumers. Hyundai's i20 for instance is priced between Rs 5.34 lakh and Rs 9.15 lakh. The company is clearly trying to shed that image. Additionally, the sporty hatchback also gets new silver roof rails and silver skid plates for a youthful charm. While the side profile gets a new set of bigger 15-inch alloy wheels, which are a size up from the Figo's 14-inch rims, the rear end culminates in a jutted out bumper and a pair of smoked tail lamps. Step inside and you will find a charcoal black interior with dual tone seats in sienna and black. As for the petrol version, it gets the new 1.2-litre Dragon series naturally-aspirated petrol engine which generates 94bhp of power and 120Nm of torque.


Ford Freestyle also features Ford's in-car infotainment system, SYNC 3 with a 6.5-inch touch-screen which allows drivers to control their entertainment and their connected smartphone with conversational voice commands.

The Freestyle has been developed especially for emerging markets to tap into the growing sub-compact crossover segment and Ford India has taken a lead into the project with its engineers carrying out over 50 percent of the design engineering on the auto including changes to the suspension, wheel track and the brakes. The diesel variants, on the other hand, carry the same 1.5-litre, four-cylinder oil burner from its hatchback and compact sedan siblings. The motor produces 100PS and a peak torque of 215Nm, and the company claims a fuel efficiency of 24.4kmpl from it. Along with a new engine, Ford has also introduced a new five-speed manual gearbox on the Freestyle which comes standard in both the petrol and the diesel variants. Then there are standard safety features which are dual airbags, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution, anti-theft alarm, door ajar warning and so on.
