Ford India, a unit of US-based Ford Motor Co, on Wednesday introduced a new line-up of its mid-size sedan Fiesta at a starting price of Rs 593,000 (ex-showroom Delhi).

The base variant of the line-up would come up at a premium of Rs 5,500 over the earlier base variant of the car. The company has replaced its mid-end 1.4 ZXI with a more powerful 1.6litre ZXI variant. The three variants have been priced at Rs 593,000, Rs 620,000 and Rs 690,000 for 1.4 EXI, 1.6 ZXI and 1.6 SXI respectively, the company said in a statement.

Ford has also upgraded the diesel line-up of the car - Fiesta Duratorq. The three diesel-powered variants would be sold at Rs 703,000, Rs 749,000 and Rs 809,000 for 1.4 EXI, 1.4 ZXI and 1.4 SXI respectively.

"Fiesta has been recognised by various automobile experts for its performance, stability, manoeuvrability and control, qualities that are most sought after by those who are passionate about cars and driving," Ford India Vice President (marketing, sales and service) Scott McCormack said in the statement.

The new Fiesta line-up (both petrol and diesel) would have driver-side Air Bag turn Indicators on Outside rearview mirror as standard fitments. The top-end variants would also sport ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System), 6CD changer with 6 speakers, leather upholstery, key-less entry, electric boot release and driver side height adjustment.
