Ford Figo reminds us that why Ford still is a force to be reckoned with in India. In fact the Ford Figo is the only the car from the house of Ford Motors that generates about seventy percent of the entire cars sold in the country. Recent reports suggest that Ford Motors will now make the Figo even more saleable with the addition of some more features. The renewed Ford Figo will come in both the fuel variants.
The Ford Figo will start off with changes to the interiors for the ZXi and Titanium variants. The renewed hatchback car will also be bolstered with a tilt able steering wheel, a USB port for double DIN stereo and with shiny alloy wheels for the high end Titanium top variants.
The option of tilt able steering wheel for the ZXi version now means that the car will no longer have the adjustable seats. The next generation Ford Figo with all these cozy features will come at an additional price of approximately INR 20,000 above the current price of the high end Titanium edition model inclusive for both the petrol and diesel variants.
The Ford Figo has the distinction of being the front runner in the company’s fortune due its perfect sync with Indian driving conditions. The car is damn good and stable on Indian conditions easily making it one of the most successful small cars from the house of Ford in India. Apart from the ride quality the Figo also offers an equally fuel efficient mileage in its segment and in its price range making the car a truly value for money purchase. The gasoline engines are of 1.2L capacity and the diesel cousin with run power-train comes with a 1.4L TDCI engine.
Ford Endeavour in the SUV segment and Ford Fiesta in the sedan class are the other fellow brethrens of the Ford Figo that are retailed by the company in India.
