Ford unveils 2015 Figo hatch, prices start at 4.3 lakh
Ford rolled out the 2015 Figo in the country at a starting price of Rs. 4.29 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Sharing most of its design elements, features, and engine options with the compact sedan, Aspire, the car looks strong in the game. With the six airbags, dual-clutch automatic transmission, and the most powerful engine lineup, the Figo is also the most feature-loaded car in its league.
The vehicle stands tall against the Maruti Suzuki Swift's which starts at Rs. 4.64 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), thus being cheaper by about Rs. 35,000. Just like the Aspire, the new-gen Figo too features the company's new signature grille with four horizontal slats, sweptback head-lights, underlining body-coloured bumper, etc. In fact, the Figo's side profile also looks similar to that of the Aspire till the rear wheel arch.
With that being said, it's the rear profile that helps the two Ford cars look different. The Figo gets a hatch and wrap-around tail-lamps. Since the the new-generation Ford Figo is inspired by its sub-4m sedan sibling, its interior also look identical to that of the Aspire with features such as three-spoke steering wheel with silver accents, steering mounted controls, and a 4.2-inch SYNC multimedia infotainment system among others.
However, unlike the Aspire's dual-tone scheme, the Ford Figo gets an all-black cabin instead. The New Ford Figo also shares its engine and transmission lineup with the Aspire. While the diesel variants feature a 1.5-litre TDCi unit (99bhp) mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, it gets a choice of 2 petrol engines - a 1.2-litre TiVCT (87bhp) with a 5-speed manual and a 1.5-litre TiVCT (110bhp) with a 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
Just like its sub-compact sedan sibling, the new Ford Figo too gets 6 airbags, anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), electrically adjustable ORVMs, height adjustable driver seat and other provisions.
