Thanks guys! But I saw the reports regarding the Fiesta hatch launch in the Autocar show on TV, so I assumed it would be credible to some extent. Even then, Rs 7 lac+ would be too steep for a compact hatch like the Fiesta. I had read reports about a 6 lac price tag and therefore began considering it as an option. I will be TD the i20 and the Polo for sure, although the Polo's boring design (both inside and outside) and lack of equipment (in the cheaper models) does turn me off
I am planning to buy a hatchback in Dec10-Jan11 and had zeroed in on the i20 (Sportz petrol) but then read about Ford planning to launch the Fiesta hatchback in Jan11. So here's the confusion. I am a big Fiesta (hatch) fan having driven it in Europe and would buy the Fiesta hatch anyday over the i20. What I want to understand is if these rumors of Fiesta launch are really true, else it doesn't make sense for me to wait. I have my doubts about the rumors because Ford already has the last-generation Fiesta sedan in India and has recently launched the last-generation Fiesta hatch (Figo). Why would they do that if they were serious about bringing the new Fiesta hatch in Jan11?
