Ford India has launched the face-lifted Figo, an enriched version of India’s “Most Awarded Car” with an enhanced Kinetic design, trendy new colours and a host of enhanced smart features. Prices start from Rs 3.85 lakh for the petrol trim and Rs 4.81 lakh for the diesel (both ex-showroom, Delhi). The new Figo will not only add many numbers to the sales chart but it will also be adding fear among its rivals including the Chevrolet Beat, Maruti Ritz and others.
Like we mentioned earlier today, the Figo facelift gets new headlamps, new steering column mounted audio controls, new tail lamps, alloy wheels, new front bumper and a new seat fabric design. The new Figo also gets two new paint shades – Bright Yellow and Kinetic Blue (borrowed from the Fiesta). The alloy wheels and new shades is only available in the top-end variant.
In the inside, the sporty red dashboard plastic colour has been replaced by cool navy blue. Also the Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) level is said to have been improved inside the cabin with the use of double bulb weather strips. This feature has been added as road noise at higher speeds was an issue on the old Figo.
Under the hood, the new Figo is powered by the same 1.2-litre Duratec petrol engine and 1.4-litre Duratorq diesel engine. However, Ford claims it has improved engine calibrations for better pickup and gear shifter mechanism. Power and torque figures of 71PS/102Nm and 69PS/160Nm for the petrol and diesel engines remain unchanged from the outgoing car.
New Ford Figo will be offered in four variants for each petrol and diesel, LXI, EXI, ZXI and Titanium. And the revised Figo variants now cost Rs 3,000–5,000 more than the old car. The hatch continues to be offered with a 2-year/1,00,000 km warranty. The company has also improved its dealer network in the country and the numbers now stands at 230 dealerships and 123 service outlets. By 2015-2016, the company hopes to ramp up its pan-India network to 500 outlets.
