Ford Freestyle online bookings on Amazon India to start from April 14 onwards
Ford will be soon launching the Figo-based crossover, Freestyle in India. While Ford India is yet to give an official launch date for the same, the company dealerships have already started accepting bookings. And now the company has initiated online bookings for the Freestyle that will be done exclusively on Amazon India from April 14, 2018 onwards. However, only 100 units of the crossover will be available for bookings on the online platform.
Amazon India has made a dedicated website for the same wherein the customers can select their preferred variant, engine option and colour. Customers can book their Ford Freestyle by paying a token amount of Rs 10,000 via payment options available on the dedicated brand page or through Amazon mobile application.
The Ford Freestyle will be offered in eight variants and here is a detailed list of the features and options that will be offered in them. The Freestyle's interiors look identical to the updated EcoSport's. Effectively the Titanium variant gets the same 6.5-inch touchscreen, equipped with Ford's SYNC 3.0, which offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The interface is slick and touch sensitivity is good though menu options can be slightly confusing. A slight disappointment was the design of the instrument cluster and air-conditioning controls. The design hasn't changed much since the Fiesta's days and looks dated. A white background and different font for the numbers on the meters would have surely brought some novelty.
Ford will be offering the Freestyle in both petrol and diesel engines, mated to a manual transmission. The diesel unit has been retained from the Figo hatchback whereas the petrol is Ford's new 1.2-litre, three-cylinder Dragon series. We have already driven the 2018 Ford Freestyle and here are our initial impressions.
