Full Review

Exterior: Great styling with aggresive feature lines. Gives the car an Actice stance...I like the vertical tail lamps, Paint job is excellent, RED color simply rocks...

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort): Very spacious, Rear leg Space is more than Swift/I10, Even wheel track is more, hence Figo is wider that others, Largest boot space plus you can lift the seat cushion and Fold-flat the back 180 degree, you can easily sleep in that area on long drives.

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox: Smooth gear shifter, No hassles at all, Fuel economy is proven since same engine from Fiesta platform, though actual revirews will come out only after few days/weeks from users, Power and torque is less than Swift Vdi, but that's OK with me, Not that its too low, Diesel pick-up is great.

Ride Quality & Handling: Steering position is just perfect, U feel in total control of the car, Nice pick-up even in 4th gear, very responsive steering.

Final Words: I am definitely gonna purchase this one (Diesel RED Zxi/Exi), Till few months back I used to consider Swift Vdi as the only best option in all aspects, But Figo is a nice option now.

Areas of improvement:  Concerned about less Ford dealers in India...Penetration should be more.

i had made the Test drive in chennai of both Ford Figo Diesel and Swift LDi with my friend who owns Swift Vdi with ABS,Compare to both Figo got less Pickup compared to Swift Model,but if we take into Legspace,boot space or Comfortability everything is Excellent in Ford Figo.Even my friend after driving for few km he too was saying Figo is excellent so i am finally saying Ford Figo is better in Comfortability,Performance and Spacious,so i have decided to buy Ford Figo Diesel Lxi or Exi
