Ford Fiesta vs Fiat Linea vs Volkswagen Vento : Price Comparo
Ford has managed to price the 2014 Fiesta very competitively. The new Fiesta looks stunning, is loaded with features and comes only with a Diesel mill. Here we compare the Fiesta with its competitors the VW Vento and Fiat Linea. All these cars appeal to different buyers and have their own set of positives and negatives and have something different to offer.
The latest entrant is the 2014 Ford Fiesta. I would say it’s a commendable effort by Ford to have tweaked the cars exteriors and interiors to provide something new to the customers. The Fiesta is powered by a 1.5 litre Diesel unit which produces 89 BHP of power and 204 Nm of torque. Ford is offering the new Fiesta in three variants – Ambiente, Trend and Titanium. Ford has worked on the safety aspect by providing all the three variants with ABS and EBD as standard.
Moving to the Volkswagen Vento we must say it has German engineering in its blood and build quality that is unmatched by other car manufacturers. The Vento is sober with its styling and has a much understated design. The Vento is powered by a 1.6 litre diesel engine which produces 105 BHP and 250 Nm of torque. The German engineered Vento is the most powerful of the lot in terms of engine displacement and torque. The Vento is also considered to be high on maintenance as compared to its counterparts.
Finally coming to the Italian bred Fiat Linea. The Linea`s styling is better than the older model but it’s starting to look a little outdated now. The linea is powered by a 1.3 Litre Multijet diesel unit producing 93 BHP and 209 Nm of torque. Fiat does not have many dealerships at the moment. After sales and service could be an issue though Fiat is working on increasing its dealer network in India.
Ford has taken a leaf out of its earlier mistakes and priced the Fiesta aggressively. It is the cheapest of the lot followed by the Linea and the Vento. The top variant of the Fiesta is loaded with features and is the best looking of the lot. One thing that the Fiesta misses out on is the rear seat comfort compared to its rivals. We recommend the Fiesta for its price, looks and features. Ford has hit the nail on the head this time around.
