Review of Ford Freestyle
This stunning car offers a tough stance as it is unfazed by rough terrains and swerves as smooth as on highways. Also known as baby EcoSport, this car provides safety with passion and diligence. The Maruti Suzuki Ignis and the Mahindra KUV100 NXT seem to be some of the tough competitors of this semi SUV-like car.
This car is available in three stylish variants- Titanium, Titanium+ and Flair. The top-spec Titanium+ offers 6 airbags, active roll protection, anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control and traction control which makes it a complete package.
