Considering the fact that Indian customers love the crossovers and SUvs, this model is expected to become popular. This stylish and attractive looking car comes priced between Rs. 5.09 lakh and Rs. 7.89 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi).

Ford Freestyle is available with a 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel engine options. Transmission duty is done by a 5-speed manual gearbox in the Ford Freestyle.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Ford Freestyle

 

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

    Ex-Showroom ₹7,09,000
    The Ford Freestyle is a good-looking crossover with rugged styling and ample ground clearance. The car is feature-packed, fun to drive, and offers an excellent ride quality. That said, the quality of plastics is average at best, and the rear headroom is nothing to write home about.
