hi vishsl take my advise go to a show room drive all the vechiles you wish to by compare its performance and then select. however i would suggest go for VERNA , a little expensive but worth it. all the best after all you dont by cars daily

Expert`s comment:

With Ikon you can expect milege of around 14KMPL and fiesta gives 20KMPL.and swift gives 17KML.

First of all now Ikon doesnt come in diesel variant, only one model is available that is ikon flair 1.2 petrol. If you want you can buy it second hand which i will not advice you becuase resale value is too less for that, and unless the first owner doesnt face any problem he/she dont sale out there diesel ikon, maintanance is high but it gives ambient driving pleasure. Milage is around 14 km/ltr. Right now you can buy ford fusion or ford fiesta both are good.

Vishal, I had placed an Enquiry on Fords India Website, I recieved a call from Chennai the same day. The fellow claims 20KMPL. Also says that kerb weight of IKON is lesser than Fiesta, hence practically it would deliver mileage more than fiesta. Ikon kerb, previously has run with 1.8 Diesel Engine, so i feel New Ikon should perform.Except for the Service Network and Costly After Sales issues are to be taken into consideration.

I have a Fiesta and Swift, both are Diesel !
My suggestion would be the New IKON with the diesel elngine !

I check the mileage usually , here are the figures,

On long drive (average)
Fiesta : 19 Kmpl !
Swift : 19.8 Kmpl !

For City use (average)
Fiesta : 11 , 13.

Swift : 12


The swift diesel that i use is a brand new one just covered 3500 KM so far !

Iam expecting better mileage once the free service are being done.

In Chennai i love to drive the Swift than the fiesta.

of course the mileage may vary depending upon the city and traffic.

Both are very good carss in Diesel!

I started hating Hyundai, I recently sold by Accent GLS which is just 2 year. Its always smooth but not sturdy.This is just my opinion over Hyundai.

I am been told by the dealer that the the NEw Ford Ikon Diesel 1.4 Durotec will give a millage of 18 to 20 in the city moderate traffic and as it has the same Ford Fiesta Diesel Engine and the Kerb weight is nearly 144 KGS less as compared to Ford Fiesta Diesel so the millage will be more. Ford Fiesta Diesel Owners kindly reply......
