Exactly a year after Ford rechristened the ‘Fiesta Classic’ to the ‘Classic’ the American car manufacturer has unveiled a limited edition of the CLXi variant. The new variant will get accessories previously seen only on the top end Titanium models and will be available in both petrol and diesel engines.
This special edition gets seven new features which include front fog lamps, a rear spoiler, reverse parking sensors, chrome finish on the grill and in the interior and 175/65 14 inch alloy wheels with tubeless tires that replace the stock steel wheels on the standard edition.
The Ford Classic is powered by a 1.4-litre diesel and a 1.6-litre petrol engines. The former produces 68PS and 160Nm of torque while the petrol produces 68PS and 160Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox.
The advertisement says bookings for the limited edition CLXi Classic starts from today (June 14) but the prices have not been revealed. The standard CLXi petrol costs INR 6.28 (ex-Showroom Delhi) while the CLXi diesel costs INR 7.34 (ex-Showroom Delhi).
It is likely that despite the launch of the Fiesta, Ford has decided to continue sale of the Classic as an effort to penetrate deeper into the entry level sedan segment. With car sales hitting an all-time low, it is also likely that Ford is making an effort to align its inventory with market demands.
