                        Ford has one more hatchback to its portfolio, offering car buyers more options in the budget segment. Based on the Figo, the Freestyle is a compact crossover hatchback which sits a little higher and looks tougher. The Ford Freestyle, with its pricing, competes with Maruthi Suzuki Swift and Hyundai Grand i10 and offer a rugged SUV-ish option in that segment.

The vehicle gets bumper mounted fog lamps, roof-rails with blacked out wing mirrors. It also gets all-around cladding for the crossover SUV looks along with a stripes that run along the doors for sportiness.
