Owning a Ford car carries a definite element of superiority and pride in our country. Ford has at best one car each across all segments in the Indian car market. The most popular ones being Ford Figo in the hatchback segment, Ford Fiesta and Classic in the sedan section, the Ford Ecosport in the SUV segment and Ford Endeavour in the MPV cars segment. The little Figo in the hatchback section is one of the most popular Ford cars in the country. Running successfully since 2010, this car is built and priced to Indian likes. Launched in 2011, the Fiesta is a long and wide luxurious sedan with a longer wheelbase as well. Its prices range from Rs 8 to 10 lakhs. A cheaper option in this segment is the Ford Classic. Its base variant is available at just Rs 5 lakhs. The huge Ford Endeavour is a mighty vehicle with plenty of sitting as well as storage space and is ideal for rough terrains. Besides forceful road presence, it is blessed with loads of safety and comfort features. Ecosport is a sporty looking car which looks and feels like a big vehicle but is very handy and practical like any other hatchback around.

The general downside of Ford cars in India is their high maintenance cost and poor after sales service. But the company is already on the path to overcome these shortcomings by opening more service centres and bringing in low cost cars. In the coming years we can soon see Ford emerge as the market leader.
