The upcoming Ford Figo facelift has been spotted on-test once again in India. The new model is expected to get fresh cosmetic upgrades and a new petrol engine. It is believed that Ford might unveil the new Figo at the upcoming 2018 Auto Expo event in the country. Reports indicate that the new model is likely to have a sportier appeal as compared to current mode which was introduced way back in 2015.
Based on what can be seen, the new model is expected to get a new grille, redesigned bumpers and tweaked blacked out headlamp. The sides look more or less the same as the current generation model, however this time around it gets fresh set of newly designed alloy wheels. The taillights have also been tweaked for freshness.
Under the hood, the new Ford Figo will continue to be powered by a 1.0-litre TDCi engine that generates 99bhp of power at 3750rpm and 215Nm of torque at 1750rpm. The diesel engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. This time around the Figo facelift is expected to be offered with a new 1.5-litre three cylinder petrol engine which has been recently introduced in the new EcoSport. The new petrol engine generates 121bhp of power at 6500rpm and 150Nm of torque at 4500rpm. The petrol engine might be offered in five-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmission options.
Inside, new Ford Figo is likely to get the new touchscreen infotainment system with SYNC3, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The vehicle is also expected to get revised upholstery and new interior theme. The vehicle is likely to be launched in 2018 and more details about the new Figo will be revealed early next year.
