Ford India has unveiled the new entry-level mid-size Ikon range, which is powered with a new advanced DuraTorq TDCi engine.

The manufacturer's suggested retail price of the Ikon powered by 1.3-liter petrol engine is INR459,000 while the manufacturer's suggested retail price of the 1.4 Duratorq TDCi version is INR519,000.

Michael Boneham, president of Ford India, said: "The introduction of the latest generation 1.4-liter DuraTorq TDCi engine transforms the way the new Ikon drives, and at the same time builds on the current model's core strengths to deliver on customer wants, improved overall performance, better fuel efficiency and lower cost of ownership."
