“The Government’s decision to extend the excise duty concession is a welcome move and will certainly uplift consumer purchasing sentiments as we head into the festive season over the next few months,” said Vinay Piparsania, executive director of Marketing, Sales and Service at Ford India. “It reflects the government’s recognition of the importance of the manufacturing sector and its contribution to overall economic growth.”

Ford India introduced the 2014 Ford Fiesta with a stunning new look, plush interiors and several segment-first features. Redefining expectations for a premium sedan, the stylish new 2014 Fiesta will offer SYNC® with Ford AppLink™ – a smarter, hands-free in-car technology to keep drivers safely connected while on the road. SYNC® with Ford AppLink™ will feature two India-specific apps – explore by MapMyIndia and ESPN Cricinfo – and one global app, Glympse.

“The 2014 Fiesta, with its best-in-class driving dynamics, design and in-car technology, is a complete package that delivers much more than the expectations of customers in this segment and offers an exceptional value and a compelling option for discerning enthusiasts,” Piparsania said.

To provide ease and comfort during driving through the monsoons, Ford India is organizing its ‘Monsoon Ready Service Camps’ across the country. The service camps include a free car wash and vehicle report card, exceptional offers on new wipers, batteries, brake pads and suspension, and attractive gifts.
