    Q. Is Ford Freestyle Titanium plus petrol 1.2-litre, a better option in terms of riding, safety, drivability, and body build quality compared to Swift and i20?
    • The build quality is definitely better than swift and quite onnpar with i20 Some areas Ford has compromised to cut costs . For ex: no rear door pockets , seat udjustment lever etc are some areas we may feel it could have been better.But the drivability of Ford freestyle be it petrol or diesel it'll definitely b**w your mind and make you go for it.Comming to safety tit+ could cost a little more & it gets 6 airbags which is quite good .. but t*t variant is still a much better value with 2 airbags. Take it anywhere confidence with its huge greound clearance @190 mm is quite huge for a car of its size and class....
    Q. Which car has better built quality Maruti Swift, Hyundai I20 or Ford Freestyle
    • If we talk about the NCAP crash tests, Swift got 2 stars and Elite i20 got 3 stars with Dual airbag variants. If we talk about Freestyle, though, it hasn't been tested by NCAP, we expect it to get good build quality. But for final words, we would suggest you to wait till Freestyle get tested by NCAP.
    • Freestyle is far superior.
