Ford Fiesta 2011 which was launched in India in July 2011 at a starting price of Rs. 8.23 Lakhs. All new Ford Fiesta global sedan has been a great handler and offers some of the best features in this segment, we have done a detailed test drive review of the new Fiesta Petrol and Diesel here. The trims levels introduced initially were all loaded with ABS, dual airbags and complete safety features. The pricing of the Fiesta however did cause some troubles with the sales volumes of the car. India being a very price competitive market did not offer the deserved sales volumes and popularity to this car. During the festival time and year end, Ford India offered some great discounts and offers on the Fiesta Petrol which proved to be great and the sales did pick. This was a clear indication that pricing was coming the way of the sales besides being one of the best handling, highly efficient and quiet cars in the segment.
Taking its lessons from the same, Ford India has today officially announced the new line-up of Ford Fiesta 2012 which makes the new Ford Fiesta more affordable for aspiring customers. The Ford Fiesta Ambiente Petrol new variant starts at just Rs. 7.23 Lakhs ex-showroom Delhi which is huge Rs. 1 lakh lesser compared to the previous entry level variant Fiesta Style Petrol. This is likely to be a win-win for Ford India and Fiesta buyers as both get benefitted from a new lineup which will increase affordability and sales of Ford Fiesta 2012.
