Ford Freestyle Review with Positives, Negatives. Prices, Features of Freesytle Trend, Titanium, Titanium Pus Petrol and Diesel Model

 

Ford Freestyle Review

Ford Freestyle as introduced is what a crossover which matches the ease of driving as what seen in Hatchback and carries DNA of one among better suspension and handling dynamics as what seen in SUV. Here is what can expect from Ford Freestyle in Positives and Negatives

 

Ford Freestyle Positives

Ford Freestyle as Figo Cross Launch Details, Changes, Features, Prices in India

  • Care for a Fun to Drive Enthusiastic Car - you will simply love in Ford Freestyle Diesel Engine. The strength is yes 1.5 Litre, 4 Cylinder TDCI Diesel Engine which produces 100 PS Power and 215 NM Torque in 5 Speed Manual Transmission. Quick, Responsive and pulls cleanly from 1500 RPM you will love in the way Power Flows. There is no match to Ford Punchy Josh Engine in the segment
  • One among better suspension and handling dynamics in the price range in which Freestyle is Offered. With raised 189 mm Ground Clearance (Unladen) and 15 Inch Wheels with R 185/65 Tyres with good steering feedback - you will be impressed by Freestyle Capabilities on City, Highway and Slight Bad roads (however, dont confuse it as off roader)
  • BS6 Diesel Engine is highly fuel efficient too. Can expect in around 15 Kmpl in City and around 20 kmpl+ on highway conditions. Scheduled Service Cost of both Petrol and Diesel are reasonable too. You can check on MyCarHelpline Service Calculator
  • Impressive Active Safety Features as ESP, Traction Control available in Titanium Model and Fully Loaded Titanium Plus available with advanced Passive Safety of Side Airbag and Curtain Airbag.
  • Even though no Rear AC vents, but Ford AC are one among best in class, will be impressed with AC Cooling Effectiveness

 

Ford Freestyle Negatives

  • Although Freestyle Petrol on Paper is a Dragon Series Engine with 95 PS Power, but do have test drive, this 1.2 Litre 3 Cylinder Engine only feels linear and no match to what as seen in Diesel Engine. Even this 1.2 Litre Engine feels good for those who only want relaxed drive, its not as peppy as what seen in Swift, Baleno and will even rate Nios 4 Cylinder Engine ahead of it too as somehow on higher speed the engine NVH levels are higher in Petrol
  • Shockingly, one of the few cars in Sub 10 Lakh Segment which is not offered in Automatic Transmission.
  • Although Styling is subjective, but exteriors looks, Interior Dash Layout, Instrument Cluster Design layout all feels very oridinary. There is no Wow feel if you are someone who gives styling an edge. No Projectors even in Top Model
  • Some Features as missing - No Projectors, No DRL, No Armrest on Driver and Rear Seat, No Seat Back Pockets on Rear and biggest of all is that Ford removed Sync3 Touchscreen as it used to offer earlier, its now replaced with Flyaudio Touchscreen system after last updated in Feb 2020 and it misses in Android Auto, Apple Car Play which enables live navigation
  • Although Driver and Co-Passenger Seats are scooped but Rear Seat Legroom space feels average. If we compare against Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios then Rear Seat Legroom comparatively feels slight compact. No point in comparing against Jazz, Elite I20, Maruti Baleno

Although there are no other CUV (as Ford calls Freestyle) in this price range, but how's freestyle petrol feels in comparison to Nios/Ignis in terms of ride quality, long term reliability Service quality. The car will be mostly driven in Bangalore city (lot of potholes) and ocassional highway trips.
