I work in India,

 

Seen some interesting Fords around. Especially the "Ikon" which looks like an older Fiesta at least from the front but it has a boot.

And I have seen plenty of Escorts around but all of the ones I have seen are the Saloon Variant, never a hatch or Estate.

 

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome!!

 

That Ikon reminds me of a Dacia Logan!! Saying that, doesn't look too bad. Guess Ford thought there was too much of an overlap to sell it elsewhere.

From Wikipedia, Interesting.

 

The Ford Ikon is a sedan version of the Ford Fiesta Mark V on the Ford B3 platform. It is manufactured and sold in India. It used to be manufactured and sold in South Africa, Mexico and China where production ended in December 2006, September 2007 and 2007 respectively.

 

The Mexican and South African Ikon was closely based on the European Mark IV and V Fiesta, delivering vehicle attributes that would have been acceptable to European customers. The India Ikon has a cheaper suspension, interior and front end structure. The China Ikon was somewhere in between.

 

In Mexico, Brazil and China, the Ikon was marketed as a Fiesta sedan. In Brazil, this model has been replaced by a new 4 door model based on the South American Fiesta. In South Africa, the Ikon has been replaced by a different 4 door model based on the European Fiesta Mark VI (but different exterior sheetmetal) and manufactured in India. (This vehicle is badged Fiesta in India and has not replaced the Ikon in the Indian market.)
