    Just Amazing!!

    Vandy
    Loaded with all the security features, fun to drive, amazing dynamics. Interiors could have been better but itz a personal choice. I am ready to compromise on interiors and boot space to get this powerful beast.

    Excellent car in this budget

    KIRAN ADITYA
    Its been 6 months since we bought this car. Clocked 7500kms on it. I think it is the most value for money car in its segment. Safety wise it is well and good, has 6 air bags, abs ,tcs,arp. We bought the petrol one. Fuel efficiency is a bit low. in city we can expect around 12 to 13 and in highway around 16. Engine performance is good. Overall i would suggest you that this is the best car below 9lakhs.

    Ford freestyle

    R k baghel
    Ford freestyle car is say average car in all point of view. But main problem is its servicing / sadual maintenance. Ford service center are less , his employer behaviour are not familiar & take lot. of time for service . I have face two three times misbehave by service center. Ford customer care executive are only support dealership.Now a days l have much deppressed by his service center service manager behaviour & my vehicle servicing is continuing last one month

    My first car - Ford Freestyle

    Amitab Singhal
    I have driven Ford Figo & Ford Ecosport & have loved both the experiences which made me purchase Ford Freestyle in Nov-18 The car provides excellent driving comfort, road grip & stability. The space & seating comfort offered in the car are also good. The car provides an average of 12 KMPL which goes upto 13.5-14 if driven exclusively on highways. Though the car is loaded with features which make it stand ahead of competition but I had to get certain parts like parcel tray & AC Gas/Cooling system changed due to substandard quality of material used. Fortunately, I was not charged for both the parts & they were changed under warranty which speaks highly about the customer support being extended. What makes me fear is that if the engine parts start breaking down for no reason after the car is out of extended warranty then how the issues are going to be addressed....I hope Ford will take necessary actions to ensure customer retention & loyalty. Thanks

    A short review of the Ford Freestyle Titanium Plus Ti-VCT (manual)

    Subin Joseph
    I was really excited when I was about to test drive the Ford Freestyle Titanium Plus Ti-VCT(manual). Ford says that this car is a CUV(Compact Utility Vehicle) I was told that the the car won't disappoint driving enthusiasts. But I was disappointed about something. Both the interior and exterior designs are old fashioned. The plastic in the the interior is not of top notch quality. But it's fine. The steering wheel feels nice and comfortable to hold. There are steering mounted controls for volume and calls. There is a 6.5 inch touch screen in the center. The infotainment system is compatible with Android auto and Apple car play. GPS navigation system is also available by default. The car is equipped with automatic climate control which means we don't have to manually control the AC. The audio quality is nice. There are 4 speakers. The interior is not as beautiful as the interior of other cars in the same price range. There are rain sensing wipers and automatic headlights. Drive The car feels great to drive. It is definitely a driver's car. But the ride comfort is disappointing. The suspension is very hard. It helps at higher speeds but it is very uncomfortable when we drive on bad roads. There is a "thud" sound from the suspension when we drive through bad roads. The engine is not so refined. Engine sound can be clearly heard inside the cabin. The car is powered by a 1.2L 3 cyclinder engine which produces 95 bhp @6500RPM and 119nm @4250RPM. The power delivery is not so punchy. Apparently 4 cylinder engines are way better. We have to keep the rpm above 1500. Otherwise the car feels really sluggish. The car would have been way better if it had a 4 cylinder engine. The car is very stable at higher speeds. There are active safety features like the ABS, EBD, ESP, TCS and ARP. There are 6 airbags in this car. Since the car is equipped with ESP and ARP, we can easily control the car at corners. I repeat, this is definitely a driver's car. The 190mm ground clearance really helps. The boot space is 257 litres and the fuel tank capacity is 42 litres. In my opinion, this is not a fuel efficient car. Safety Like I mentioned earlier, the car is equipped with active safety features like the ABS, EBD ,ESP, TCS and ARP. There are 6 airbags in the car. So this car can be called a safe car. More than 95 percent of cars in the price range doesn't come with ESP and TCS. Conclusion If you are a driving enthusiast, you don't have to be reluctant to buy this car. The petrol version is not so powerful. But if you can afford the diesel variant, it would be better. The diesel variant comes with a 1.5L 4 cylinder turbocharged engine which churns out 99bhp and 215nm. This car is not a comfortable one. The suspension is on the harder side. So do not expect a comfortable ride.

    Awesome performance

    Basab Dowerah
    It’s been 14 months since I bought this car after a 3 month research and comparisons!! The best thing in this car is the power it provides from the 1.5 L engine. The acceleration is top notch. The drive becomes more smoother and grips well to the road after you cross 100kmph. City mileage is around 14 and in highway it gives 20, however what I have noticed that if you maintain a speed not more that 90kmph the mileage starts increasing gradually means it may go beyond 24 kmpl. Safety aspect is the best in the segment with ABS, TCS, EBD, 6 Airbags and Anti Roll over system!!! This is the Beast!! Nothing can beat it in this segment ! Period!!!! ;)

    Good Sport vehicle who can not afford an SUV

    D Nasar Kochuveetil
    I purchase freestyle titanium plus petrol on oct 19 , driving till now was sheer pleasure with good cabin comfort and safety feeling while driving in high speeds over 140. You will never believe its a 3 cyl unless you read the spec while going over 60kmph. The auto ac is fine and cabin is luxurious and spacious. This car is budget friendly and a fine offering from ford which can be used for sport uses and still a family partner. If you want a fun for offroad, luxury and family car go blindly for freestyle rather than going with the herd.

    Worst car I have driven

    r
    I am surprised at the review of other users; maybe I just have a bad unit! Its the worst car I have driven. And I have owned driven: Volkswagen Polo, Honda Accord, Maruti Esteem, Zen, Duster, Fiat, Tata Indigo over the years. Its front suspension screeches everytime I brake; but given the pathetic pickup and mileage I dont really drive fast. In my opinion this is a badly designed car, at least this version; to put a 1.2L engine on a heavier body they just played round with some gear ratios and injection and then put it out there. Its to fill in the gap between ecosport and Figo both of which are much better cars. I would not encourage anyone to buy this car.

    This variant makes most sense

    Abhishek
    This car makes most sense at 5.42 lacs on road, to me. Well, If you really care about automatic climate control and 2din infotainment system, even second variant could make sense. But after that, the prices enter a level that offers a lot of other differently awesome cars. But at this price point, this car remains undisputed king on almost front, maybe not just milage.

    Performance with ensured safety

    Gaurav
    You need to drive it to believe its capabilities. I had a test drive of Freestyle petrol on Palm beach road Navi Mumbai (140 KMPH with ease and still power was left to go beyond) for approx 5 KMs and also on a stretch of bad road filled with bumps and potholes with 3 on-board for approx 3 KMs. Pros: 1. Supreme refinement for 3 Cylinder engine (cant tell whether it is a 3 pot motor or 4 pot) and punchy engine (exhaust note is awesome) 2. steering feedback, suspension setup, ride quality 3. safety features (ESP, HLA, TCS) 4. touch screen infotainment system and sound quality 5. Adjustable headrests (Front & Back) 6. Build Quality (Thud sound when you close doors) Cons: 1. Styling could have been better and Dimensions on paper don't reflect when you see it on road 2. Interior Space and boot space could have been better Finally Booked Freestyle Titanium Ruby Red Petrol as per my average monthly travel (1200 Kms/Month)...On Freesyle Diesel front- Only one word and that has to be "Pocket Rocket"

    Undoubtedly the best car in this price bracket

    Aamir
    It has been 4500 km now in four months for me now with my Freestyle Titanium Petrol. Most of the driving is in the city which returned an average fuel efficiency of 14.1 kmpl. It cost me 6.95 lakh on-road price in my city, including all the formalities and paperwork. The sales team was very helpful and knowledgeable. The driving pleasure of this car is awesome, and the vehicle is comfortable both in the front as well as back. It surely makes heads turn and has a massive street presence with its muscular built and aggressive styling. Some of the features are not up to the mark like a smaller boot space and DRLs but overall the package is nice and decent. Would definitely recommend to anyone with a budget under 7 lakh, above Elite i20 and Baleno. Titanium variant is the most value for money among the lot. Good luck. :)

    • karthik 04-Apr-19 12:28 PM IST
      bro, what was your initial milage.Till some 3000Kms. Am having the same and its giving me a mileage of about 8Kmpl. Its been 8 months with the car and 2800Km in total. Never have crossed 85Kmph speed too.

      Just go for it!!!!!

      Adithya Adhikari
      Hi, recently I bought this car after thorough review and comparison with other models in this segment (i20, Baleno, Swift). Pros: 1) segment first features (TCS, HLA, ARP) 2) Safety features (6 airbags, metal body) 3) High ground clearance (Trust me, its handy in city's unscientific humps and potholes) Cons: No central arms rest, no 60:40 rear split seats,

      Good Car to Own

      Prassan
      I have purchased this car recently. The experience while driving is mind boggling. over- taking on highways is easy with ample driving comfort and good road visibility. I have driven it overnight trip of over 600 KMS and it was effortless driving even in dark with one of the best in class fuel economy for a car which is less than 3 days old. Even in the city this car is easy to drive with light steering without much need to change gears..

      Built quality is something which can be trusted for Ford vehicle. But in Free style its not like other Ford cars. Overall performance is awesome, with a decent mileage. But built quality can be better.

      Best in this car segment !!

      Pranit Dhumne
      Out of 2500kms, 1000 kms I drove in the city. Powerful engine, no noise, smooth gearbox. Got mileage of 12 kms/litre in city. On highway, very stable at 140 km/hr speed. Got mileage 16 km/litre on highway. Tuned suspension makes it stable at sharp turns. Best in class touch screen. Breaking feedback is perfect. It gives more confidence, specially during urgent breaking.

      Best car in the segment with powerful engine

      Raj Kumar Singh
      95 BHP Powerful engine. Descent fuel economy. Smooth gear box. The suspension also makes for a very confident feel when driving enthusiastically, irrespective of whether you're on smooth asphalt or non-existent roads. The wider track benefits handling as well by adding to the planted feel. And in typical Ford tradition the Freestyle's steering is very communicative which adds to the driving experience. Very good grip on road. You will feel energetic due to powerful engine and ease in handling. Perfect for city as well as highway. On the safety front the Freestyle gets six airbags. Traction control, ABS and EBD are on offer as well.

      Best VFM safe car in this price segment

      babu
      Exterior Exterior is overall nice , but bright colour options should be given and LED/DRLs/HID should be given as accessories atleast for styling and for modern looks . 4/5 star Interior (Features, Space Comfort) Interiors are functional and OK type not so great , funky dash colour, doesnt look premium though . Front seats offers excellent comfort, while rear seats offer OK type comfort due to fixed headrest, no 60:40 split and thigh support is OK type . 4/5 star. Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Performance , mileage and gearbox are also excellent and USP of this car . 5/5 star. Safety features : Loaded with tons of safety features like ARP, traction control, Hill hold assist, Electronic Stability Control ( outstanding and unheard feature in this segment ) , 6 airbags . Chassis is built good . So good mix of active and passive safety features . ( 6 out of 5 star rating here :) ) Ride Quality Handling Outstanding in ride and handling , not stiffer nor soft . Perfect balance of sporty Vs comfort as i observed. Best in class and USP of this car . No other Car from any manufactuer matches in this dept . 6/5 star rating here :) ( polo punto are other two contenders in this dept ) Service : Ford service costs is cheap unlike earlier but the quality at service centres, interaction with customers is improving but still not in the league of Maruthi or Hyundais. So, you can bear the service with excellency of the car . Product is outstanding but service is OK type . Together still on the +ve side . Final Words Overall , this car is 4.5 out of 5 , ( exterior styling interior needs enhancements ) but when you match it with price , its definitely 5 out of 5 star rating. Areas of improvement Fixed rear head rest, no 60:40 rear split seats, no Sporty Colour options like red, blue, all are plain jane colours. Interior funky colours given , not looking premium. T+ should have given higher tyre size option. No LED/DRLs/HID for styling looks even as accessories (especially compared with competition).
