Ford Figo 2019 To Be Launched In India In March
New Delhi: Carmaker Ford India will be launching the new and upgraded Figo hatchback in India next month. The facelifted version will feature redesigned exterior styling along with a revamped interior.
The 2019 Ford Figo will sport honeycomb mesh grille with redesigned bumpers both fore and aft. The fog-lamp design will be cued directly from the new Freestyle. Apart from that, the vehicle is also expected to have a new headlight and taillight lighting signature and some freshly designed alloy wheels. There will also be a new 6.5-inch floating touchscreen with Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system.
Under the hood, Ford Figo 2019 will come with a new petrol engine from the Dragon family. This will be the same 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine which does duties in the Freestyle and the Aspire. Meanwhile, the oil burner will be the same 1.5-litre TDCi. 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.
Furthermore, for the first time ever, there will be a CNG option with the Figo. This will be the same system as the recently launched Aspire CNG.
After launch, the prices of the Ford Figo facelift will be on par with the current model. The car is expected to give stiff competition to archrivals Maruti Suzuki Swift and Hyundai Grand i10.
