Ford India has confirmed that it will launch the new Freestyle crossover on April 26, 2018

Ford India has confirmed that it will launch the new Freestyle crossover on April 26, 2018. The Figo-based crossover hopes to take on other such cars like the Honda WR-V and the Hyundai i20 Active and slot in below SUV-like crossovers like the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Ford EcoSport. According to the website, the car will be available in 4 variants – Ambiente, Trend, Titanium and Titanium+ in petrol and diesel versions.

The Freestyle gets typical faux-crossover design cues – the lower body cladding, roof rails, blacked-out elements and others – but has more ground clearance than its hatchback sibling. The ground clearance of 190mm, a 30mm wider track than the stock Figo and the visual bulkiness give the Freestyle a distinct SUV-like look. On the top-of-the-line variants, it gets dual-tone brown/black upholstery and fabric seats. The standout features include the addition of a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone connectivity, push-button start, automatic headlamps and rain-sensing wipers.

With the safety features like ABS with EBD, dual front airbags, seat belt reminder, high-speed warning and reverse parking sensors will be standard on all variants, while higher variants get Active Rollover Protection.

The Ford Freestyle will be available with a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine, which makes 95 BHP @ 6,500 rpm and 120 Nm of torque @ 4,250 rpm. The diesel version will be powered by a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder engine that produces 99 BHP @ 3,750 rpm and 215 Nm @ 1,750-3,000 rpm. Both engines will be paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
