About Ford Freestyle

The Freestyle is Ford’s way of trying to get more out of the Figo platform. But rather than just making it the Figo with added cladding, the Freestyle gets mechanical changes and additional features along with genuinely interesting visual changes to help it stand out among the faux-SUVs in the segment. Ford calls the Freestyle ‘India’s first CUV’ (compact utility vehicle) and stuff like the 190mm ground clearance (10mm lower than the EcoSport!), 30mm wider track, stiffened anti-roll bars and 15-inch alloy wheels make it feel like it can actually take on the rough stuff. An all-new petrol engine with improved power and mileage, new touchscreen infotainment system and an eye-popping interior theme should make the Freestyle more popular too.

Ford Freestyle Overview

Production of the Ford Freestyle has been officially stopped and the hatchback will be completely discontinued once the dealer stock runs out.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Freestyle

Q. Which Ford Freestyle to buy, petrol or diesel?
  • Ford debuted a new 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine with the Freestyle. The engine comes from Ford’s new Dragon family of motors and develops a class-leading 96PS of power and 120Nm of torque. The diesel engine on offer is the tried-and-tested 1.5-litre TDCi motor that pumps out 100PS of power and 215Nm. Moreover, selecting the right fuel type depends on your utility and the average running of the car. If you drive less than 50km in a day then we recommend you to go with a petrol car as they are easy to maintain, have a longer life span and they cost less initially than the diesel car. On the other hand, diesel cars are preferred if the average daily run is more than 50km which makes it a feasible purchase. For a better understanding of compatibility and performance, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
Q. When will we get the CNG approval in Ford Freestyle and from where we can check it is approved. Who is the concern person to provide the actual details?

Ford Freestyle offers comfortable ride quality and loads of safety features including six airbags, anti-lock brakes, traction control, electronic stability control and active roll over protection.

Q. I am confused, which car to buy between Ford Freestyle Titanium and Tata Nexon XM
  • Looks like the initial enthusiasm abt Tata cars is decelerating. Despite the build, safety, comfort, space, features etc., there appears to be something withholding the customers. Could it be the poor service network or the engine that is yet to prove it's might on long term reliability. On the other hand the Ford offers a reliable engine that is proved and tested on Indian road conditions. Though Freestyle appears bit old school by design/ interiors it's build quality, reliability and fit & finish is quite good. It is compact in comparison to nexon and offers very good driving dynamics.
  • Nexon is a superior car compared to Freestyle.But when you compare two vehicles in different segments i.e. Nexon in lower variant and Freestyle in Top variant, it becomes a personal choice Though you will not miss a lot in the Nexon, but Freestyle would give you a complete car vibe.Thats the best your Freestyle could be. But with Nexon XM, you will miss few features such as Touch screen infotainment system, Alloy wheels, Rear fog diffuser, Fog lamps etc.So if you want a complete car and your family is not more than 4, only then go for Freestyle.Else, Nexon is the choice over i20, Baleno, Freestyle, Figo, Polo etc
  • When freestyle was launched, I thought it might revive Ford like Ecosport did but it could not. The car is really good, specially in Petrol variant.But when you have a compact SUV in the same price bracket in terms of Nexon, why look for Freestyle? Lets look at Pros of Freestyle wrt Nexon1. Safety - 6 airbags in titanium (o)2. Features - U get all the features like fog lamp, rear defogger, touch screen etc, which are missing in NexonNow pros of Nexon over Freestyle1. Bigger and Spacious2. Better ground clearanceU can get the Nexon XM nd get few accessories to make it look better

Q. Which is best between Titanium or Titanium Plus - Freestyle?
  • Titanium Plus has 6 Airbags and some perks like SYNC3 Infotainmet System which is the best among the cars in segment.But, if you want to upgrade your Upholstery, like Leather seat covers then you will not be able to do so in the Plus variant as it has Airbags embedded in Front Seats. You may go with Titanium and spend around 10K for Seat Covers and Automatic Headlamps and Automatic Wipers which is there in the Plus model.
  • With the price difference of about 60k on-road in Bangalore, you will get 6 airbags, rain sensing wipers and smart voice assistant infotainment system. Rest features are mostly same. It's your call.
  • Titanium plus because even if you make a decision to put the other accessories aftermarket it might cost more than a lakh...its better to go for the plus...

    Diesel owner

    I'm a proud Ford Freestyle Titanium Plus Diesel owner and I'm sharing my experience with you. So sit back relax and have a look. If you're one who is concerned or looking for great build quality, outstanding safety features, beautiful ride and handling, excellent suspension setup, brilliant steering feedback, extreme power and performance from the engine, marvellous fuel economy, so much economical after-sales service, and a complete package of practicality. Overall a wonderful package out in the market. But, If you're the one looking for fancy features such as LEDs, DRL(Daytime Running Light), projectors, then go for it, it's a practical car, it's not like the only show on go. Everything has some pros and cons, so here we are with cons now, Little low boot space. Other than that it's one of the most lovable products, if don't believe then do drive one by yourself.

    I bought this car in sept 2020 and this has been the best decision i've ever made.The car is so comfortable to drive and is a beast when it comes to power.I've completed 4k kms till date and man i tend to love the car more and more as i clock more kilometers.Haven't faced any issues with the car and every time i drive, I feel proud of buying this vehicle.I've driven swift/i20/baleno and trust me, Freestyle is better than all three.Fine tuned engine, Comfortable seat, Proper handling everything is so good about it.Best can under 10 lakhs.

    Testdrived baleno

    best value for money. I testdrived baleno, i20, altroz and freestyle and finally bought freestyle. Hill launch, ESP, Traction control and good ground clearance with best handling and power and least maintenance cost annually(maruti twice in year. ford's 10 year annual maintenance bill is already provided by ford. you jst pay that amount. no more extra cost) and 6 air bags too. what more you can get in this price range?. you can fit philips xtreme vision for headlight. it is plug and play. freestyle is a definite buy.

    Ultra comfortable

    The driving experience of this car is awesome. I use to drive a Hyundai car. But its steering feels masculine. The power to mileage ratio is also very balanced. Obviously you won't get a mileage like Maruti but after all you are driving a Ford. It's much much safer than driving a Maruti. Being a CUV (they call it) it's not ultra comfortable but moderate comfort is there in longer drivings. But powerful engine subsides all the complaints.You should go for it

The Ford Freestyle is marketed as the adventure companion you’ve always wanted, is it so?

May 29, 2018  By Team ZigWheels

The recipe isn’t all new, sure. But has Ford served up brilliance, or is it just another case of too much masala?
