Ford Figo Sports Competition Check

April 17, 2017, 07:31 PM IST by Bilal Ahmed Firfiray
Ford Figo Sports Competition Check

Ford has introduced the Figo Sports and Aspire in India at Rs 6.31 lakh and Rs 6.50 lakh respectively (Ex-showroom, Delhi). The Sports edition models are based on the top-of-the-line Titanium trim and will be available in petrol as well as diesel engine options. The changes largely include cosmetic upgrades, although the models have received a retuned suspension system along with larger wheels and a rear spoiler.

The Figo is one of the most potent hatchbacks in its segment and is a fun to drive package if you love to spend time behind the wheels often. Here is a competition check on how it fares against its adversaries - Tata Bolt, Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10, and the Volkswagen Polo

Tata Bolt

The Figo has a bigger diesel engine compared to the Bolt and has better power outputs as well. The Bolt, however, is more spacious and comfortable, even though the Figo has larger dimensions. The Figo boast of six airbags, and the most potent automatic climate control. The Indian-bred Bolt loses out on automatic transmission, whereas Figo is available with a DCT transmission.

Maruti Suzuki Swift

Ever since the Figo made its debut in India, it has always been gunning for the segment leader, the Swift. The Swift and Figo are evenly matched in terms of features and equipment. But the Figo takes away the brownie points for higher power figures and the automatic transmission. The Swift is also clearly more expensive of the two.

Hyundai Grand i10

The Grand i10 underwent a mid-life update and a change of heart recently and a new infotainment system. The Figo is slightly more expensive than the Grand i10, but the Korean is overshadowed by the Figo in terms of power figures and size, and misses on the ABS which is available only on top-trim with no EBD.

Volkswagen Polo

This is the only car in the list with an engine powerful enough to offer a tough match to Figo. And the Polo is also the most expensive one. The Polo is high on safety, but the Figo has an option of six airbags. Both the cars are equally fun to drive, but the German is heavier on the pocket with its superior build quality, handling and performance.
