The Ford Freestyle takes on vehicles like the Hyundai i20 Active and Honda WR-V. Our Ford Freestyle vs Hyundai i20 Active vs Honda WR-V comparison here should help you choose between the three.

  • The Ford Freestyle enjoys a slight edge in terms of performance.

Both the motors come mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

    The i20 Active gets a 1.2-litre petrol engine that outputs 83 PS and a 1.4-litre diesel engine that offers 90 PS. Hence, it has a clear disadvantage when compared to the Freestyle. The Honda WR-V’s 1.2-litre petrol engine outputs 90 PS. Its 1.5-litre diesel engine offers 100 PS. While the difference in power is only marginal, the Freestyle enjoys some advantage over its rivals at least on paper.

    Ford Freestyle Vs Hyundai I20 Active Vs Honda WR-V Design

    While none of these three cars looks anywhere as rugged as a typical SUV, they carry enough styling updates to justify the crossover tag. The Freestyle, like we said, is based on the Figo. However, it carries enough updates to look significantly bolder than its donor hatchback. The plastic cladding and the bolder stance from the increased ground clearance help this car look more masculine.

    The Honda WR-V is based on the Jazz and hence, looks a lot like the B2-segment hatchback. However, Honda seems to have gone the extra mile to give this car its own unique identity. The styling revisions it carries, give it a SUVish stance and a more muscular look than the Jazz. The Hyundai i20 Active too gets a similar treatment. Basically, all three cars come with bits like plastic cladding, roof rails and higher ground clearance that lend them a SUVish look.

    As shown by our Ford Freestyle vs Hyundai i20 Active vs Honda WR-V comparison here, the Freestyle holds a clear edge over the i20 Active and the WR-V in most aspects. Hence, don’t be surprised to see it eating into the sales of the older hatchback-based crossovers.
