Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) intends to take the wraps off its new cross-hatchback and that might be happening anytime soon if everything goes according to plan. The cross-hatch has been on trial several times and Ford has been involved in an exclusive drive in the model that is yet to be launched.
An official working with the company said, “The cross-hatch has been spied testing a number of times and we have had an exclusive drive in a pre-production prototype of the model, as well. Despite the production challenges that have been popping up from time to time along the way we are glad that we have succeeded to accomplish quite much so far.”
On the inside, the lower-spec variants will be characterized by a touch screen infotainment system as well the EcoSport trims of very low specs.And all that is targeted at giving users an amazing experience. The airbags fitted in will make the new product much safer and that is a matter that will interest quite a large number of them.
A breakdown of what will most probably be termed the Ford Freestyle according to people familiar with the most recent developments is that it is currently under the bonnet. The debuting of the three-cylinder petrol engine is one of the moves targeted at ensuring that the new model provides comfort to users and at the same time gives Ford an edge over rivals. Going by the company’s drive experience, a few differences do exist between the crossover and Figo hatch. One of them is the suspension set-up and the new steering.
Ford’s spokesperson while addressing a number of journalists outlined that the latest model was great fun to drive. He went further to disclose that it bore a segment-leading ride-handling package, which is fundamentally a typical attribute of Ford. The unveiling of the new product will take place any time soon and any time from now we should anticipate that the company will proceed to unleash more details regarding the Honda WR-V rival and the Hyundai i20 Active.
Competition is growing stiffer with the passage of time and that can be closely linked to the various technological advancements that are sweeping across the globe at the moment. However, Ford remains determined.
