Ford Figo Arrives in a Brand New Avatar

Change is fun, change is exciting, change is surprising change is here! And this time, it’s arriving on 4 wheels! Ford India today introduced the New Figo that comes with a host of enhanced features and substantially packaged style, performance and value-for-money. All set to make heads turn, Figo comes in two new striking colours; ‘Kinetic Blue’ and ‘Bright Yellow’.

At a starting price of Rs 384,999* for Duratec and  Rs. 481,999* for Duratorq; the new Figo builds on the sporty and sophisticated personality of the original, featuring several key changes like the re-designed head and tail lamps, hexagonal front grill, new instrument panel colour and steering column mounted audio controls, among others. ( More details on the price here)

It’s not just the outside, but the interiors have got a new avatar too! The refreshing new instrument panel in ‘Riviera Blue invokes a sense of vibrancy while the new blue seat fabric gives a premium feel to your ride.

Here’s a quick look at 10 enhanced features:

  • Enhanced Kinetic design: A new-look front fascia with a hexagonal grill and redesigned headlamps builds on the car’s Kinetic design that exudes dynamism
  • Better performance:  The New Figo has improved engine calibration to deliver higher acceleration during first few seconds resulting in better pick up. Shifting gears requires less effort
  • Quieter cabin: New Double Bulb weather strips on doors further reduce noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels inside the cabin, keeping the  interiors quiet
  • Steering column mounted radio controls: Customers can stay connected to their loved ones and not miss a beat of their favourite songs – while keeping their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road
  • Better comfort: Better seating comfort with improved lumbar support and head rest adjustment
  • New headlamps with new design at bumper interface: The artistically designed headlamps have a larger reflective surface, improving visibility
  • Freshened tail lamps: The newly designed tail lamps give the car an enhanced look and better visibility
  • New 14” alloy wheels and wheel cover design: New 14” alloy wheels on the Titanium variant and wheel cover designs give the car a sportier look

The New Figo is brimming with energetic performance and superior comfort. Improved calibration of the engine gives it a better pick-up during starting off and overtaking. Shifting gears requires lesser effort making it a joy to drive, while added lumbar support in the seats and adjustable headrests enhance comfort.

The car offers one of the best all-round packages of style, performance and value-for-money in India twith its best in class space, AC and first in segment Bluetooth connectivity. A nimble well-engineered steering and suspension, responsive engine and light and precise steering also make the Figo a fun-to-drive car.

We have celebrated change by carefully listening to our customers and enhancing it with smart new features and improved looks.

We would like to thank our customers for making the Figo so successful within such a short span and believe the New Figo will take their brand experience to a new level. Here’s a sneak peak at brand new Ford Figo :)

  • Ford You Need To Improve

  • http://www.facebook.com/sreecan Sreekanth Alakanti

    Guys… Please do give the current owners also some options to upgrade our existing Figos to get these features……I’d love to have the Steering mounted controls and the alloyz and the front grill and the head lamps ….. I want all of em ….

    can be installed on existing Figos?

  • http://twitter.com/ivan457 Ivin Gancius

    Never go for the base model. Not upgradable!

  • Pradeep

    Hope company focuses on the mileage part of it also…. Its worst with my existing one 12 kmpl can u believe it….?

    i get 16kmpl in my petrol figo exi with 100%ac on and 22kmpl without ac. dude check your driving habits before posting such comments

  • lenon

    you guys have not included what was really needed in the car rear power windows. what diffrence the changes in the front and rear lights are going to make???

  • http://www.facebook.com/javababu Ananda Babu

    Why are making these false claims. The only way you got 22 KMPL on a liter is if have jacked up your vechicle.

    Pradeep, The mileage is low, because of two reasons,
    1) Hydraulic Power Steering
    2) Best in class AC compressor

    Mileage is a tradeoff for the above features.

    come ‘on ford these r not the changes or new ford figo, but r regular updates..
    be more optimistic about the refreshed or new avatar what ever…
    don’t take us for granted anymore.
    be realistic and practical with the new features etc,,. if any in future.
    wish u Ford all the very best. :)

  • Mahendra

    This mileage is comparable to other cars in the same range, an i20, i10, swift, jazz, fabia, give you the same mileage…12-13 kmpl….and if u improve your driving habits, like not accelerating too much all of a sudden and between 50-60 kmph then i have got better mileage .like 16 kmpl

  • Mahendra

    the new features seem to be good, but not ground breaking, rear power windows should have been on the list, also side airbags, and more colours….other cars have so many colours to choose from.

  • amit chaudhari

  • RUmapathy

    I have purchased a New Figo in Nov12..No complaints on performance,Following points could have been taken by Ford India
    1.Temperature gauge-gives confidence in Indian conditions for the user

    2.Blue Tooth pairing is giving problem-as per Video by one user-the service engineer fixed it as 1234 and not 0000 as per blue-tooth pairing video of Ford-It worked but has stopped working!
    3.The rear suspension gives hard sound when crossing over deep pits-Long Live Bangalore Roads–yes I am from Bangalore!!
    Rest no complaint-Very good car-I recommend it it is VFM w/o any doubt-w/o frills brillinat auto design-with good Mecotronics

  • drrahul

    Hi guys. My ford figo diesel titanium gives around 19-20 kmpl…its now more than 20000kms old car…still the best!!!
