Which Variant Of The 2020 Ford Freestyle Petrol Offers The Most Value For Money?

The top-spec Titanium Plus variant of the Ford Freestyle petrol is the most value for money.

The Ambiente variant of the Ford Freestyle petrol is too basic to earn our recommendation. Even though the Trend variant is a bit expensive for the features it offers, we’d suggest you upgrade if you can. If you can stretch your budget further than the Titanium variant is a better value-for-money upgrade but not as good as the Titanium Plus. The top variant is an easy recommendation as you get the most value for money option than the incremental price you pay compared to any lower trim.

Recommendation

Ambiente

Rs. 5,89,000

For budget buyers only. Consider upgrading to Trend for better ownership experience.

Trend

Rs. 6,44,000

Not a value-for-money upgrade over Ambiente but not too overpriced either. It gets the basic must-have features.

Titanium

Rs. 6,94,000

Value for money upgrade, but worth skipping for Titanium Plus variant.

Titanium Plus

Rs. 7,29,000

Our top-recommended and most value for money variant.

What Are The Dimensions Of The 2020 Ford Freestyle?

The Freestyle petrol is a bit longer than the Figo hatchback and similar in other respects except the ground clearance. It has an SUV-like ground clearance of 190mm.
