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.
