This four door sub four meter sedan will be the star for the American car maker at the Auto Expo. The production version of this compact sedan is actually sedan version of the next-generation Figo (Codename: B562), and will act as a replacement for the Fiesta Classic when it goes on sale in 2015.
The upcoming Ford compact sedan will be underpinned by the same B2E platform as the Ford Ecosport. Powering the car will be the 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol motor and the 1.5-litre DV5 turbo-diesel motor. The car could come with new age technologies such as Powershift dual-clutch automatic transmission, SYNC infotainment system, EPAS (power steering), push button start, etc.
As we mentioned above, the upcoming Ford Ka based compact sedan would come to us in late 2014 or early 2015 and is likely to go on sale at a price that will be at par with those of the Japanese and Korean rivals.
