Sadly, there's no manual tiptronic option or even paddleshifts behind the steering wheel as on other dual clutch transmission cars, but for those who are already sold to this new age of stick-shift free locomotion, Ford has priced the new Fiesta Automatic at a starting price of Rs 8.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) for its basic Style variant and Rs 9.70 lakh for the high-end Titanium + (ex-showroom Delhi), which is quite understandable considering the basic high price range for the manual cars to begin with.”
