Ford's trusty steed, the Fiesta Classic, even after the launch of the New Fiesta has soldiered on and done fairly well in the Indian market. Now, in line with their "Go Further" motto, Ford have today launched the Fiesta Classic Titanium, a new variant that slots in right between the existing CLXi and SXi variants.

In addition to the features currently available on the Fiesta Classic, the Classic Titanium carries a spruced-up exterior, with body-coloured ORVMs, blackened radiator grille and new alloys. The insides have received a shot in the arm too, with beige livening up proceedings, to go along with a Bluetooth-equipped stereo with speed-sensing volume controls and automatic speed-sensitive door locks.

Apart from these inclusions, the Classic Titanium remains mechanically identical to the other variants, and is available with the 1.6 Duratec petrol and 1.4 TDCi diesel engines. Ford quote ARAI-certified mileage for the diesel Classic Titanium at 32.38kpl, and 21.27kpl for the petrol.

Offered in six shades and clubbed with a two year/100,000km warranty, the Classic Titanium is now on sale for Rs 6.86 lakh for the petrol and Rs 7.82 lakh for the diesel (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi)

Michael Boneham, president and managing director, Ford India, said, “We have been listening to our customers to offer a value proposition with smart technologies and best-in-class features with the introduction of the Titanium variant in our Ford Classic range. By bringing in Bluetooth telephony in this segment and integrating eight other outstanding features, we have delivered on our promise to democratise technology and add unmatched value to a reliable, fun-to-drive Ford Classic. With its refreshed interiors, amazing fuel-efficiency and performance, the Classic Titanium is one of the most compelling products in its segment today.”

Does the new Titanium variant make the Fiesta Classic look that little bit more appealing to you, TopGear.commers?
