Ford calls on its upcoming Figo-based crossover – which likes Hyundai i20 Active, Toyota Etios Cross and Fiat Urban Cross – a CUV (Compact Utility Vehicle). However, the expected value tag of Freestyle applies against some compact SUVs as well. That’s why we are making it against the Tata-Naxon’s highest-priced money against the sub-4-meter SUV.
A raised and hard hatchback: Freestyle is based on Figo hatchback and it clearly shows up in its exterior design. It looks like the raised version of the upcoming Figo Facelift.
Fgo is as big as: Freestyle is based on Figo, so do not expect a huge cabin. However, our test data shows that Legroom and kneeroom are more than Nexon in Pre-Faciliffe Figo. So hopefully freestyle will be as good.
A bold crossover: Tata Nexon is based on an existing hatchback (bolt) platform, but it is a completely different product in the flesh. As far as its external design is concerned, it is a crossover with a high ground clearance and flared wheel arches, which gives it the road presence of an SUV.
Truly Vast Tata: Continuing on its reputation, Nexon offers a generous room for your head and shoulders. Said that, this is less legroom than Freestyle.
Visually, Tata Nexon is one of both. It is 40 mm long, 74mm wide and 37mm long, compared to freestyle. We also expect that Ford Freestyle’s cabin space will be less than Nexon, although the first wheelbase is only smaller than 8 mm. The freestyle material is 93 liters smaller than the Bay of Nexon. If you think that there will be an increase in ground clearance in Ford Freestyle, then you will be wrong. It is 19 mm more than the Nexon Ford.
According to the above numbers, there can be no match for Freestyle Nexon. And that’s because it’s not really, because both cars have separate segments. He said, the relatively small dimensions of Freestyle will make it more suitable for those looking for private vehicles with limited parking spaces. Now we move towards engine specifications.
Petrol motor is a 3-pot unit on both Nexon and Ford Freestyle. This is Tata, which trumps Ford in all departments except for the most important: Fuel Economy However, pay close attention and you will see that Freestyle has a better power-to-weight ratio compared to Nexon, and it should make it more agile than two
The diesel versions of both cars are powered by 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder units. This is Nexon which again leads the power and torque game. But once again, the low weight of the freestyle ensures that there is a better power-to-weight ratio, which can result in Ford faster and more fuel efficient between the two.
We hope that the price of Ford Freestyle will be between Rs 5.99 lakh and Rs 8.59 lakh. Read more about expected prices here. On the other hand, the price of the Tata Nexon in Delhi is priced between Rs 6.16 lakh and Rs 9.90 lakh in the top-spec XZ + dual-tone variant.
Tata Nexon is equipped with ABS, EBD and dual airbags. In its base XE variants, only the power windows are found in the front. In comparison, Freestyle’s base environment version is more loaded. It includes ABS, EBD, dual airbags, rear fog lumps, high speed warning, front power window and keyless entry in the form of standard.
Top-spec Nexon XZ + offers projector headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), 16-inch machine-cut alloy wheels, cornering fog lumps and LED Tail Lamps. In the cabin, sliding tambor door for storage space, push-button start / stop, 60:40 split rear seat, 6.5-inch contemporary system with automatic climate control and Apple Carple and eight speaker. Various connectivity options such as voice commands, Bluetooth, USB and Aux-in Additional security features include a rear defaulter, rear parking sensor and a camera.
Freestyle’s top variant focuses more on security. It is equipped with emergency brake support on ESP (electronic stability program), hill support, six airbags, rear parking sensor and standard equipment. It trumps Nexon on Entertainment Car also on Apple CarPlay with Android Auto and Ford’s SYNC system. Convenience facilities include auto headlamps, rain-sensing wipers and auto climate control. Freestyle’s top-spec variant is aboard a 15-inch alloy wheel.
If Ford costs the top-spec freestyle below Ford Nexon, then it will become a better value proposition than Tata, especially when you consider the amount of kit on the offer.
