Ford Figo is one of the most important cars for the American carmaker in the Indian market especially because the hatchback segment remains to be the main sales driver for all the manufacturers here. However, the new Figo hasn’t been able to make an impact in the market and Ford will be looking to change things with another update.
Ford Figo Facelift has been spied testing in India and will be launched pretty soon where it will try to take on the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift. The launch, however, will happen only once the company takes the curtains off the new CUV Ford Freestyle.
What Does The 2018 Ford Figo Get?
Although the new Ford Figo 2018 that has been breaking the internet does not get a design overhaul, there are minimalistic changes that will try to establish the car as a potential hatchback. Most notable changes come in the form of new front grille and new bumpers both at the front and rear. Ford is also expected to bring new alloy wheels to the Figo.
Coming to the inside, the interiors of the Ford Figo will have a similar design language like the Ecosport. There will be a floating infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto which will also get the Sync3 updates. This is just a rumor as of now though.
Twin airbags and ABS will be standard but the top end variants might continue to get 6 airbags like the current generation Ford Figo. While the diesel engine will be carried over from the current model, the petrol will be a new 3-cylinder 1.2-litre engine that will be derived from the Dragon series.
New Ford Figo Price in India and Launch Date
Ford Figo Price in India is expected to be largely the same as the current car. However, with the added features a premium of 20,000 Rupees cannot be ruled out. Pricing has to be competitive as the car goes against the Maruti Suzuki Swift which has created a chaos in the segment. We think Ford will launch the new Figo sometime later in the second half of 2018 after the Freestyle.
