In 2000, Ford Ikon was debuted in a sedan design, created on the platform of Ford Fiesta for markets where roads are not flat. The production of sedan originally was established in an Indian factory IMF in the town of Maraimalai.
It is clear, Ford Ikon is very similar to Ford Fiesta, whose debut took place in September 1999 at an autoshow in Frankfurt. As the Interior of Ford Ikon confirms the cabin is identical with Ford Fiesta. In fact, Ford Ikon is a Fiesta with a separate trunk. Sedan wheelbase is 40 mm longer than the hatchback and rear overhang increased by 272 mm so the total length of Ford Ikon is 4140 mm.
Ford Ikon is equipped with a 1.6-liter petrol engine of series Rocam (later appears with 1.8-litre diesel engine). Ford Ikon was developed jointly by Ford specialists from German and British branches. Comprehensive tests were carried out in Germany, Belgium, England and, of course, India. Ford Ikon was driven over a million kilometers on rough roads in India.
