Ford India launched the hatchback version of the sedan Figo Aspire which will go by the name of ‘Figo’ today with price range between 4.29-7.40 lakh. The new model will replace the first real success Ford tasted in India with the first generation Figo.
Ford Figo is a chopped up version of Figo Aspire done aesthetically. Ford has put in a lot of effort on the Figo and from the first impressions looks like they are trying to address customer needs. The pricing is introductory and might be reviewed after the festive season.
Under the hood, the new Ford Figo gets 1.2-litre 4-cylinder petrol motor, which can dish out 88 PS and 112 Nm of torque, 1.5-litre petrol that can make 112 PS and 136 Nm of torque and 1.5-litre diesel mill that can churn out 100 PS and 215 Nm of torque. While the 1.5-litre diesel and the 1.2-litre petrol powered models come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, the 1.5-litre petrol-powered Figo comes with Ford’s 6-speed DCT automatic gearbox.
On the equipment front, top-spec versions include a multifunction three-spoke steering wheel with silver accents, Ford’s SYNC multimedia system with a display unit, climate control, electrically foldable mirror. The makers have given dual airbags as standard and 6 airbags in the top variant. This is the first car in the segment to offer 6 airbags in any trim. Best-in-class ground clearance – 174mm is an added advantage on this one.
The new Figo is available in 7 exterior body shades: Oxford White, Tuxedo Black, Ruby Red, Sparkling Gold, Ingot Silver, Smoke Grey and Deep Impact Blue. The Ford Figo hatchback will compete against the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 and the Tata Bolt.
