New Ford Figo Description

The Figo won almost all the Car of The Year awards when it was launched. Such unanimous endorsement is all the Figo needed to set it on its way. As a price-value-space equation, the Figo has reset the standard for the hatchback market - a car with Supermini space and features at Subcompact prices. It isn't perfect, however, but then this is a car which does most things right and very few things wrong. If we had to nit pick, we'd say the petrol Figo is strictly for city use, with the engine feeling a little out of depth on the highway.

Ex-Showroom Price     Rs. 3.9 Lacs. - Rs. 6.1 Lacs.

I have been driving the Ford Figo for the past more than 3 years. It has proved to be value for money in the hatchback category. After having the desired fittings of alloy wheels it has a elegant appeal. There is ample of space to the seating capacity and it is comfortable. The pickup of the car to a high speed is within seconds and the mileage is very good. The looks of a aerodynamic body gives a bold impact. Definitely suits the economic budget with a comparison to other brand of cars in the same range.

One of the best in class- Unique combination of quality, substance and generous proportions used for interiors, good quality music system and nice pair of speakers, accomodation for 5 adults, rear boot that can pack anything right from shopping bags to the luggage for a weekend, drive is very powerful & amazing torque at lower speed, average safety and amazingly chilly AC at front side however customers are seeking for rear power window, alloy wheels, fog lamps and better after sales service. Mileage is about 21.68 km/ltr on highways and 18.5 km/ltr in city drive with AC on off mode. Overall its a complete value for money deal for a family... Its Figoing..

i bought my new Ford Figo EXI about 1 and half years ago. it is a good city car. very spacious and comfortable. but power sometimes feels less when 4 people are there and ac is on. the music system is best in class with very good sound quality. i like the all-black interiors although some of my family likes lighter interiors. seats are very nice also.

Ford Figo Test Drive Report

Introduction

New-Figo

Almost two years since the Ford Figo was launched in India, the company decided to give its B segment hatchback a face-lift and launch its refreshed avatar just ahead of the upcoming festive season to cash in on the upbeat mood.

 

The company claims to have sold 2,35,000 units of the Ford Figo worldwide with India accounting for almost 60 per cent of the sales. The Ford Figo has been a good performer over the last two years and Ford claims to have made over 100 changes to make the good Figo better.

 

Ford India has launched the refreshed version of the Figo hatchback at the price point of Rs 3.85 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the base petrol and Rs 4.82 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the base diesel model.

 

We got behind the wheel of the Ford Figo 1.2 Petrol Titanium variant in a rather interesting midnight media drive which took us around the city that never sleeps – Mumbai. From Mount Mary Church, Haji Ali Dargah and Nariman Point to Flora Fountain, Asiatic Library and Gateway of India, we took the new Ford Figo almost everywhere. Read on to find out how it fared.

 

Design & Engineering

New-Alloy-wheels

The Ford Figo has always been a very sober looking car with clean lines and a balanced look. However, the new refreshed Figo gets a few tweaks to the exterior which adds character to the car and makes it more attractive.

 

The new Ford Figo adheres to Ford’s Kinetic Design language and gets a new front fascia with a hexagonal grill, redesigned headlamps with halogen bulbs and a larger reflective surface for better visibility, and new fog lamp housing. The design of the headlamp in particular is quite sporty and attracts attention. On the side, the Figo boasts of well pronounced wheel aches and the tail lights on the rear have been slightly touched upon to make it look more attractive.

 

figo exterior-details

 

The new Ford Figo is now available in two new colour options – Bright Yellow and Kinetic Blue – taking the colour scheme variety up to eight. The Bright Yellow colour scheme in particular looks very attractive and is sure to turn heads on the street. Personally, I felt that the colour looked great on the car’s surface, especially at night, and lends a very youthful and trendy look to the Figo.  

 

Features such as body coloured front and rear bumpers comes as standard across model range. The ZXI and Titanium variants gets additional external features like body coloured outside mirrors and door handles, chrome finish radiator grill, side repeaters and tailgate applique. The Ford Figo Titanium variant that we tested also came fitted with new eight-spoke alloy wheels which definitely up the style quotient of the new Figo.

Interiors & Comfort

Seat

Despite being a humble hatchback, the Ford Figo offers very good cabin space. The car has decent leg and head room for both front and rear passengers and can seat three medium built adults at the rear. The Ford Figo also has a 284 litre boot space which can easily accommodate two medium sized bags which might just prove adequate for your weekend trip.

 

The cabin is also quieter thanks to Ford’s new double bulb weather strips on the doors which help to fend off external noise and vibrations to some extent. The seats in the new Ford Figo are comfortable and provide good lumbar support. It comes with new seat fabrics which feature colour blocking technique which basically combines different colours and fabrics to create a unique one-of-a-kind combination.   

 

ford-figo-dashboard

 

The dash looks similar to the one in the earlier Ford Figo with the exception of new steering mounted audio controls, in a separate pod. These controls are only available in the Titanium variant. The air-conditioning in the Figo proved quite efficient and helped to maintain a comfortable cabin temperature, althought it was night time and hence not heavily taxed.  

 

Creature comforts like AC with heater, power steering, remote fuel filler opener, day and night inside rear view mirror and 12V power point comes as standard across the model range. Additional features like fabric insert on door trims and removable parcel tray are available on the EXI, ZXI and Titanium trims. The ZXI and Titanium variants also get a MP3 player with USB, auxiliary input, radio and Bluetooth connectivity with four speakers.   

Performance & Handling

Figo track shot

The new Ford Figo is powered by the same 1.2-litre Duratec petrol engine which produces 71PS of maximum power at 6250 rpm and 102 Nm of peak torque at 4000 rpm. Under the hood of the diesel Figo is the 1.4 Duratorq  which pumps 69PS of maximum power at 4000 rpm and 160 Nm of peak torque at 2000 rpm.

 

There is no real difference in performance from the earlier Figo although Ford India claims it has improved engine calibrations for better pick up. The braking system in the Ford Figo is good with ventilated discs on the front and drums on the rear. The car handles well and boasts of good ride quality. With independent McPherson strut with dual path mounts suspension at the front and semi-independent twist beams with coil springs at the rear, the new Ford Figo swallowed the uneven and distressed patches without a hiccup.

new ford figo performance

The 1.2 Duratec Titanium that we tested felt refined but lacked power. A midnight drive meant ample opportunity to drive on empty thoroughfares, and the engine felt out of breadth every time we tried to extract some power out of the car. That said, we know from personal experience that the Figo petrol's performnce improves over time, especially after the second service when the car has run in properly.

Fuel Efficiency

ford figo fuel efficiency mileage

 

The new Ford Figo claims an ARAI ratified fuel efficiency of 15.6 kmpl for the petrol variant and 20 kmpl for the diesel variant. Although, we didn’t get an opportunity to verify the claim, however, my interaction with Ford Figo owners have revealed that the petrol variant delivers about 10.5 kmpl and the diesel manages about 12.5 kmpl in the city with the AC.

Safety

New-Audio-Stalk

The new Ford Figo comes with standard safety features like three-point safety belt and lap strap for rear passengers. The mid-range EXI and ZXI variants come with additional safety features like the engine immoboliser and central locking. In addition, the Titanium variant that we tested came with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, fog lamps, rear defogger and rear wash and wipe.

 

Sudden braking of a car on slippery roads can be a very challenging and nerve wrecking task. If your wheels happen to lock up on wet and slippery roads or during a panic stop, then you may lose traction and control, causing your vehicle to spin, leading to fatal accidents. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) keep your wheels from locking up, so that your car maintains directional control during those sudden emergency braking.

 

In a country like India where we do experience a fair amount of rainfall and often require driving on slippery roads and graveled surfaces, essential safety features like ABS with EBD should be provided as standard across the model range. So the Ford Figo definitely scores a negative in this department and leaves enough room for improvement.   

Verdict

new-figo-verdict

There is little doubt about the fact that the new Ford Figo is a very well balanced car. From its external appearance and interior space to handling and ride quality, the Figo scores good marks. At the price point of Rs 3.85 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the base petrol and Rs 4.82 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the base diesel model, the new Ford Figo is a value-for-model proposition and a practical choice for hatchback buyers.  The Ford Figo continues to be offered with a 2-year / 1, 00,000 km warranty. The only deterrent is perhaps the lack of power in the petrol motor. But overall, the new Ford Figo is a nice car to buy and should do well in the market.
