Mumbai: Ford’s new iteration of its hatchback Figo was revealed on Wednesday.
The new Figo, as reported earlier, has a front chrome-finished honeycomb grille similar to the Ka+ and Freestyle. The headlights are also similar. The new car will have
15-inch alloy wheels. The top end will be known as Figo Blu and will get a sportier look with a contrast roof, a black grille and a different alloy wheels design.
The dashboard has been restyled on the lines of the Freestyle and refreshed Aspire.
Featurewise, it has keyless entry, push-button start, automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers and a touchscreen infotainment system. Ford’s Sync3 infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay will not be available on the facelift. It will get ABS, rear parking sensors, seatbelt reminders and a speed-alert system as standard. The top-spec Figo will get six airbags like other Fords.
It gets 3 engine options – 96hp, 1.2-litre petrol engine with the 5-speed manual gearbox, a 123hp 1.5-litre petrol engine with 6-speed torque converter auto transmission, and the 100hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
The new Figo will be launched on March 15.
