-Mid-life update for hatchback
-Seven variants (four petrol and three diesel)
-New top-of-the-line Titanium Blu variant
Ford will launch a facelifted version of its Figo hatchback in India tomorrow. There are seven variants, three engine options and a new top-of-the-line Titanium Blu variant available for Ford’s Maruti Suzuki Swift and Hyundai Grand i10 rival. We will give you our first impressions on what the car is like to drive tomorrow but till then you can check out our photo gallery of the new Titanium Blu TDCi diesel variant.
The updated Ford Figo retains its overall shape and silhouette but has been given a significant cosmetic makeover for this top spec model. The paint scheme is white over black with blu(e) inserts in the front bumpers.
The wheels, roof, ORVMs and grille are gloss black while there is a black inserts and black stickers for the hatch door at the rear. This paint scheme is only available on the top spec model and is very similar to the one we saw on the pre-facelift Figo S a while ago.
Inside, the all-black theme has been carried over from the outgoing model but with blue stitching for the seats, blue inserts for the door and blue accents for the dials on the infotainment system. Even the needles for the instrument cluster are of the same blue as the door inserts.
This update sees the Figo finally get a touchscreen infotainment system, something that had long been due for this car. The feature list for all variants of the Figo were leaked yesterday and you can read our story about the same here.
This updated Figo gets a new 1.2-litre turbo-petrol producing 95bhp and 120Nm. The diesel, meanwhile, is the same old 1.5-litre unit which produces 99bhp and 215Nm. Both the engines are available with a five-speed manual transmission as standard. The automatic transmission is only available with the bigger 1.5-litre petrol motor. This is the same powertrain unit as the one seen in the EcoSport.
The Figo is Ford’s rival to the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10, Tata Tigor and the Nissan Micra in the B+segment of the Indian car market. We expect that Ford will only marginally increase the prices of this facelifted Figo when it launched tomorrow.
