Ford India didn't taste the success with the Fiesta which the company enjoyed with the previous generation (now known as Classic).

The current Fiesta is one of the most underrated car in India. Inappropriate pricing doomed the fate of this technically advance vehicle; despite the price slashes, sales continues to dip.

The company is back with the next-gen Fiesta and Ford removed most of the nigglings pointed by the customers.
