Ford has finally revealed details about the next generation Figo, which is the follow up to the company’s most successful hatchback in India.
The car looks exactly the same in terms of the exterior and design as the compact sedan and has a trapezoid grille as well as swept back headlights and power lines on the bonnet.
The rear also has wrap around tail lamps and what looks like a fairly narrow opening. The rear looks quite sporty though and the sides have flared wheel arches and a strong shoulder line which add to the muscular looking nature of the car.
In terms of engine options, the Figo hatchback will have three mills. Firstly is a 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol as well as a 1.5-litre diesel engine. The petrol engine will deliver about 87bhp in terms of power while the diesel will have 99bhp output making it quite a power machine. The best though will be the 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol which will come mated to a six speed dual clutch AT and will produce a massive 110bhp of power along with 136Nm of torque.
The car is also expected to be a leader in terms of safety features with the inclusion of six airbags as well as ESP, hill assist and a perimeter alarm system.
The Ford Figo is likely to be priced between Rs.4.69 lakh to Rs.7.50 lakh and will take on the Swift, Grand i10, Bolt and the Brio.
