The Ford Ikon is a sedan version of the Ford Fiesta Mark V on the Ford B3 platform. It is manufactured and sold in India. It used to be manufactured and sold in South Africa, Mexico and China where production ended in December 2006, September 2007 and 2007 respectively.

The Mexican and South African Ikon was closely based on the European Mark IV and V Fiesta, delivering vehicle attributes that would have been acceptable to European customers. The India Ikon has a cheaper suspension, interior and front end structure. The China Ikon was somewhere in between.

In Mexico, Brazil and China, the Ikon was marketed as a Fiesta sedan. In Brazil, this model has been replaced by a new 4 door model based on the South American Fiesta. In South Africa, the Ikon has been replaced by a different 4 door model based on the European Fiesta Mark VI (but different exterior sheetmetal) and manufactured in India. (This vehicle is badged Fiesta in India and has not replaced the Ikon in the Indian market.)

Ford Ikon in Mexico

Ford discontinued production of the Ikon sedan at Cuautitlan Mexico in late September 2007. Sales of the Ikon ceased in Mexico in early January 2008 alongside the Ka.
