Top five things to expect from the Ford Figo facelift

Top five things to expect from the Ford Figo facelift

The current Ford Figo has been around for three years now. It did receive a Sports variant but that was it. The hatchback has been soldiering on without an update ever since. Meanwhile, its direct rivals, the Swift and Grand i10 have already upped the game. After the EcoSport and the all-new Freestyle, Ford is expected to bring in a facelifted Figo to India pretty soon. Here is everything we think you should know about the upcoming Figo facelift – 

1. Design – 

The Figo has received a recent upgrade in the international market where it is called the Ka. It is built at Ford’s Sanand facility and exported to the Brazilian and European markets. Styling wise, the India-spec Figo will receive changes similar to the Ka and the new Freestyle. Upfront, there will be a new honeycomb mesh grille with redesigned front and rear bumpers. The fog-lamp design will be cued directly from the new Freestyle. At the rear, there will be a redesigned bumpers with additional black inserts to add to its new masculine appeal. Apart from that, we also expect it to have a new headlight and taillight lighting signature and some freshly designed alloy wheels. 

2. Updated cabin – 

The interior of the new Figo will get the most significant changes. The most prominent of which will be the new 6.5-inch floating touchscreen with Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system. The same system debuted in the EcoSport and Freestyle and will also be seen on the Aspire facelift. The rest of the cabin will follow a single tone finish contrary to the Freestyle’s dual tone layout along with a better features list compared to the current car. The hatchback is also expected to get revised upholstery and added safety equipment. 

3. Powertrain – 

The refreshed Figo will get a new petrol engine from the Dragon family. This will be the same 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine which powers the Freestyle and will also find its home in the upcoming Aspire facelift. The oil burner will be the same 1.5-litre TDCi as the current car. Both engines will come mated to a five-speed manual gearbox as standard. The automatic transmission is only available with the petrol motor and will be offered with the new engine as well. 

4. CNG option – 

For the very first time, a CNG variant of the Figo has been spotted testing in India. There has been no official word from Ford on plans to introduce a CNG variant and judging by the test mule images, the launch is expected to be sometime soon. The power output figure in the CNG variant is likely to differ and be slightly lower. 

5. Launch – 

The American carmaker is busy testing the refreshed hatchback already. The Figo facelift will reportedly be revealed sometime around the festive season or in late 2018. Prices will be on par with the current model.
