Tagaytay Roadtrip with Ford Fiesta

It was a convoy of five Ford Fiesta cars from Fort Bonifacio to Tagaytay. The destination was the famous Antonio’s Grill but the main purpose was to experience a roadtrip on the new Ford Fiesta.

Launched less than a year in the Philippines, Ford has been pretty aggressive with its push of the Ford Fiesta into the Philippine automotive industry targeting young urban dwellers looking for the convenience computerized modern cars can provide.

And this is what I experienced.- a sporty car fit for young professionals who are conscious about fuel efficiency but wants to maintain the “pogi points” image fit for their age.

For one, the Ford Fiesta is a looker with its sculpted design and color options. I also later learned that you can customize the front and rear skirt for the individualistic look.

Upon entering the car, the interior shouts masculine angst all-over in the furnishings. Driver friendly innovations also include being able to sync your iPod, iPhone, or practically any other gadgets through a built-in USB port. You can also connect through Bluetooth and Voice Control for the wireless convenience of using your phone while driving.

The Roadtrip

Literally, we just breathe some Tagaytay fresh air and had lunch in Anotnio’s Grill. It was a feast! In Filipino – ‘fiesta.’ Check out NomNomClub.com for the fiesta lunch feature soon.

By about 2pm, we were headed back to Manila and had a stop-over at the homey Rowena’s where some got ‘pasalubong‘ back. In totality, there was light traffic and the trip was comfortable; perhaps due to the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) system of the car which makes swerving safe and easy. The driver would also find the hihgway driving a treat with its intelligent steering wheel system where it remains practically steady in high speeds.

5-Door Hatchback

The 5-Door Hatchback is really for the bachelor or a small family since the back seat can only fit 3 people comfortably. With a big family, this is readily obvious to me who is used to packing 4 relatives in the back seat. Although the 4-door Sedan is always an option. :P

Other major features of the Ford Fiesta include the Powershift 6-speed automatic for smooth gear changes, Electronic Stability Program (ESP) for swerving safety, and the fuel efficient 1.6 Ti-VCT Duratec 14 engine. More on the technical aspects in the Ford Fiesta feature in Sports Manila soon. :) Check more about the Ford Fiesta in their website or Facebook page,

Now, if only I had the money to buy a Ford Fiesta for myself for the next Tagaytay roadtrip.. :)
