Ford reveals Freestyle Flair Edition, launched at an attractive introductory price of INR 7,69,000 for petrol & INR 8,79,000 for the diesel variants. The trendy Flair enhances Freestyle’s cool quotient with sporty red and black theme; all-around black and red graphics on doors; black-painted roof with red roof rails and black alloys. In terms of safety, Ford Freestyle Flair offers six airbags and segment-best connectivity with FordPass and a touchscreen infotainment system with built-in navigation.
The Ford Freestyle Flair distinguishes itself from other variants by sporting its red and black accents throughout. The car comes with a black roof with contrasting red roof rails along with black and red inserts on the front bumper and ORVM, also the decals on the lower part of the doors, and black alloy wheels adds to its new youthful appeal.
Interiors of the Freestyle Flair sport the all-new black& grey upholstery that adds a sense of space inside the cabin, without taking away from its action-oriented character. The red and black theme continues in the cabin with contrasting red accents on black door handles. The seats too will feature the smart Flair badge.
The small, light and fuel-efficient three-cylinder 1.2-litre petrol engine on the Freestyle generates best-in-class 95bhp of peak power and 120Nm of torque, while Ford’s renowned 1.5-litre TDCi engine delivers 100bhp peak power and 215Nm of torque. Both engines will be available with a five-speed manual transmission.
High on technology and convenience, the Freestyle Flair offers a seven-inch touchscreen-based infotainment system along with satellite navigation; we also get automatic headlamps, automatic wipers, reverse parking camera, remote central locking, automatic air-conditioner and more.
Freestyle Flair features enhanced connectivity; it also offers Ford’s globally-renowned mobility solution FordPass™, a one-stop smartphone app connecting you to the car, at no additional cost. Also with the help of this factory-fitted cloud-connected device, owners will be able to perform several vehicle operations – such as check vehicle health, know remaining fuel levels & distance to empty in real-time via this FordPass app.
Freestyle will continue to make safety its top-priority with innovative and first-in-class intelligent Active Rollover Prevention (ARP), a technology that works with Electronic Stability Control and applies brakes on relevant wheels to decrease engine torque to help prevent any potential rollover situations. It will offer six airbags for all-around protection of driver and occupants.
Ford is also introducing a one-of-its-kind partnership with JioSaavn, India’s largest music streaming platform, with this all customers who’ll book any variant of the Ford Freestyle before February 2021 will get a one-year premium subscription to ad-free music on JioSaavn. The music streaming app will also host exclusive Ford Freestyle playlists, featuring songs for every mood and journey.
Prioritizing the health and convenience of consumers, the company is accepting bookings for new vehicles via a dedicated online portal. Freestyle Flair will be available in three colors – White Gold, Diamond White and Smoke Grey
