    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.

    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 Engine Specifications Of The 2020 Ford Freestyle Petrol?

It gets a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder normal petrol engine, which makes 96PS of power and 119Nm of torque.

    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. Freestyle is worth considering if you want to buy an SUV for higher ground clearance and don’t want to spend as much. Even some of the so-called SUVs offer lesser ground clearance than the Freestyle. For instance, the WR-V and XUV300’s ground clearance measures 188mm and 180mm, respectively. The Venue’s clearance is not official but it’s also expected to be less than 190mm.
