New generation Ford Figo launched in India from Rs. 4.3 lakhs
The next Ford product, the Figo hatchback has finally been launched in the country after its sedan counterpart, Figo Aspire. The new hatchback is ready to carry the Figo name forward, a name that has stacked up quite a following in the country. Priced from Rs. 4.3 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi) onwards, the Ford Figo comes across as a very potent product in the competitive B-segment.
Carrying a completely new design when compared to the previous generation model, the new Figo’s aesthetics are inspired from the recently launched Figo Aspire compact sedan. Actually it resembles the Figo Aspire except for the rear end. The front has the same Aston Martin inspired grille, same set of alloy wheels and the same side rear-view mirrors. However, the rear tailgate has good looking taillights with a tweaked bumper that will house the number plate. The rear chrome slat has been given a miss on the hatchback.
Interiors are again only a tad different from the Aspire. The whole cabin has been finished in black, with the dashboard and steering wheel getting contrasting silver accents. The two side air-con vents are lined with chrome. Upholstery has been finished in fabric with leather not available even as an option. Feature wise, the hatch gets a 4.2-inch infotainment system, electrically adjustable side-view mirrors, automatic climate control, keyless entry and much more.
Like its sibling, the new Ford Figo comes with a truck load of safety features including the likes of dual front airbags as standard, six airbags (top-end trim), Hill Start Assist, TCS, ESP and ABS with EBD. On the mechanical front, it derives power from two petrol and one diesel engine – 1.2-litre four-cylinder Ti-VCT petrol (88 PS and 112 Nm – 18.16 km/l), 1.5-litre four-cylinder Ti-VCT petrol (112 PS and 136 Nm – 17 km/l) and a 1.5-litre four-cylinder TDCi diesel (100 PS and 215 Nm – 25.83 km/l). The first petrol and sole diesel engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the more powerful petrol motor comes paired to a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
