Ford Figo Performance & Test Drive

Ford Figo Oerview

The much-awaited update of Ford’s hatchback gets a number of changes inside out and also gets a new set of petrol engines. The car you see here is the top-of-the-line Titanium Blu variant, which gets a sportier-looking, all-black grille in what Ford calls a ‘cellular’ design and C-shaped fog lamp housings with blue accents. The black roof and black 15-inch alloy wheels are a nice contrast to the body colour and make it stand out in the crowd. There are very few changes to the rear; the Ford Figo facelift gets a redesigned bumper, and there’s no escaping the fact that the Titanium Blu variant looks much like the previous Figo’s Sports Edition, which was launched in 2017. However, the small details to the design do well to differentiate it from the previous car. It’s also worth noting that the lesser Titanium trim doesn’t get the contrast roof, sticks with 14-inch alloys and all those black and blue accents are chrome instead, just like on the Aspire sedan. The equipment list has also been updated, with the biggest addition being a 7.0-inch touchscreen.

The powertrain options are the same as in the updated Aspire. The 96hp, 1.2-litre, three-cylinder ‘Dragon’ engine replaces the older 88hp, 1.2-litre, four-cylinder unit. The new engine not only has more power, but Ford also claims it is more efficient by 2.24kpl. The older 110 hp, 1.5-litre petrol with its dual-clutch automatic has been replaced by a new 123hp, 1.5-litre petrol and its 6-speed torque-converter automatic from the EcoSport. Ford’s much-loved 100hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine has been carried forward, but with a new 5-speed manual gearbox. Ford Figo price range in India is between 5,42,726 to 8,83,409, check for detail pricing of Ford Figo in Carzprice

Ford Figo Design

Figo’s design is very to-the-line yet elegant. It surely isn’t the best-looking hatch that you’ll come across and neither is it that bad to disinterest probable buyers. It has a very no-nonsense approach in the way it has been designed. From the huge chrome grille in the front to the B-pillar, the Figo is identical to its elder sibling; the Figo Aspire.

A very “Aston Martin-ish” front grille with good chunks of chrome slats along with the swept-back headlamps define the front end of the Figo. Fog lamps are housed inside big plastic surrounds which give it a very torch-like look.The side profile is purely defined by the large windows and a protruding waistline which starts from the front fender and runs all the way to the tail lamp cluster. Turn indicators are located on the ORVM’s and there is a small chrome insert on the front quarter panel which looks neat.

The side profile looks a bit identical to the first generation Figo, which is again mainly because of the sweeping bulge. The 14-inch rims are a big turn off and Ford should have given an option of 15-inch wheels in the top-end variant. Competition like the Hyundai i20 gets 16-inch wheels and this is one area Ford needs to work on. (Let’s hope Ford addresses this issue in the next update.) Rear-end again exemplifies simplicity. A sharp crease runs in between both the tail-lamps adding some character to the plain rear profile and even the exhaust has been neatly tucked away under the rear bumper. Nothing has been done to make the car look over the top and this is the exact reason why it looks alluring.

Ford Figo Cabin

The interior of the Ford Figo 2017 is full black unlike the Figo Aspire. It also gets silver accents, to keep up with the sporty character of the car. The interiors are modern and quite pleasing. The steering is a delight to hold and has audio and bluetooth controls on it. for a change the stalk controls are unlike European cars and have the wiper controls on the left and lamps control on the right. Ford has the SYNC with Ford AppLink that takes the connectivity game to higher level, with voice commands, which help you control your phone, entertainment and apps. The Ford Figo 2017 also has power adjustable mirrors, auto locking doors and the electric boot release and keyless entry. There are quite a few cubby holes to hold glasses, cans etc.

Space is adequate in the front and back, however, three adults at the back may find the Ford Figo 2017 a little uncomfortable. Legroom is decent. The new Ford Figo 2017 has 257 litres of boot space, which is lesser than the earlier Figo, but good enough to accomodate medium luggage. If you want a bigger boot, the Figo Aspire is there.

Ford Figo Performance

Like its sedan sibling, the Ford Figo 2017 also comes with three engine options. A 1.2-litre petrol with 87bhp of power and 112Nm torque, mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The second engine is a 1.5-litre petrol that comes only with a six-speed DCT (dual clutch transmission). A dual cluch mechanism is a advanced automatic transmission and Ford was the first in India to introduce this technology in its segments, with the Fiesta. And lastly, the third engine is a 1.5-litre diesel that produces 98bhp of power and 215Nm of torque. This engine offers good performance and while there is a little turbo lag, it manages well with a strong mid-range. Its fits in well for a city as well as highway drive.Check for Ford Figo  in aryavarta.co.in

The diesel engine in the Ford Figo 2017 offers optimum performance with good fuel efficiency and is very usable too. The diesel is certainly the more powerful option and the good bit is there isn’t much lag that we generally notice in diesel engines, this makes it easy to drive in the city or even on the highway. Ford Figo 2017 is the most powerful diesel hatchback in its segment and there is sufficient power to drive it in the city or even the highways. Push the throttle and you can overtake with ease. It didn’t have that sudden rush of power when the turbo kicks in, it is more of linear increase improving the drivability.

The petrol engine of the Ford Figo 2017 returns about 12km/l in the city and about 15km/l on the highway. While the petrol automatic despite it size returns about 11km/l in the city. The Figo diesel is highly efficient as it has a mileage of 15km/l in the city and about 18km/l on an open road.

Ford Figo Rideing

Compared to the tremendous first-gen car, the dynamics of the second-generation Figo felt a lot softer and more comfort-oriented. Things were quite different, however, with the 2017 Sports Edition, which handled much better than the regular Figo, thanks to the re-tuned, lower suspension, 15-inch wheels and a beefier anti-roll bar. This facelift gets the bigger wheels and anti-roll bar, and while the suspension has been re-tuned, it hasn’t been lowered. So yes, while the front stays planted in fast cornering, the car is not quite as sharp as the Sports Edition.

What it is, instead, is a good halfway point between the sharpness of the Sports Edition and the comfort of the standard, pre-facelift car, which is more suited for everyday driving. The suspension handles bad roads with ease and is silent in operation with only sharp potholes being registered inside the cabin. However, over a patch of bad roads, there is a hint of bobbing which is evident. The steering stays light in the city and weights up nicely as you gain speed on the highways, and through all this, it still offers possibly the sharpest turn-in in the class. This remains the mid-range hatchback of choice if you enjoy driving.

Ford Figo Safety

The baby Ford has definitely impressed us on the safety front. It gets a driver’s airbag as standard in the base variant, while the middle variants (Ambiente, Trend, Trend+ and Titanium) get dual front airbags and the range-topping Titanium + variant gets 6 Airbags (segment-first) along with ABS(anti-lock braking system) with EBD ( Electronic brake-force distribution) that balances brake force between front and rear wheels and prevents them from locking. Ford has been prioritizing safety in our market in recent times (Aspire launched with dual airbags as standard) as a result of which homegrown manufacturers like Maruti and Mahindra have also started taking safety seriously by offering airbags even in the base variants of their products.

Ford Figo Price

Ford Figo On-Road Price in India ranges from 5,42,726 to 8,83,409 for variants Figo 1.2P Base MT and Figo 1.5P Titanium AT respectively. Ford Figo is available in 13 variants and 7 colours. Below are details of Ford Figo variants price in India. View offers & discounts on Hyundai Cars from Hyundai dealers in India/Hyderabad at Autozhop.

Ford Figo Verdict

Ford has cut down the number of variants from five to just three (Ambiente, Titanium and Titanium Blu) and the prices start from Rs 5.15 lakh for the base 1.2 petrol, going up to Rs 7.74 lakh for the top-end diesel Titanium Blu. The 1.5 automatic is available only in the mid-spec Titanium variant for Rs 8.09 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom India). That works out to an average of Rs 40,000 less, variant for variant, compared to the earlier Figo!

The Freestyle, launched almost a year before, showed us pretty much exactly what we would be getting with this Figo facelift, so it wasn’t much of a surprise. But then that’s no bad thing, because the Figo comes together as an excellent all-round package. We just wished the top equipment level – 6 airbags, auto lamps and wipers etc – wasn’t restricted to the ‘Blu’ styling package because the racy decals and black accents might not be to everyone’s taste.
