2019 Ford Figo (facelift) now comes equipped with updated styling, new engine option and a host of new gadgets, is even cheaper than the outgoing Figo by more INR 60,000
To keep the premium hatchback competition at bay, Ford has launched the new 2019 Ford Figo at a starting price of Rs 5.15 lakh (ex-showroom). Not just a cosmetic update, the new Figo gets updated exterior styling, new engine options, a new transmission option, a revised features list and, to the delight of potential customers across the country, even a cheaper price tag compared to the outgoing model.
The 2019 Ford Figo (facelift) comes with as many as 1,200 new components
Starting with the exterior, all updates are focused towards sprucing up the design front-to-back. These changes include a new mesh front grille, a redesigned front bumper with C-shaped chrome accents surrounding the fog lamps, restyled headlamps, newly designed alloy wheels and redone rear bumper. Apart from the cosmetic updates which are easy to spot, Ford has even changed the trim level options that the Figo will be available with - these now include Ambient, Titanium and Titanium Blu. The latter offers the sportiest accents and colour combinations of the three with blacked-out front grille with black bezel, contrasting blacked-out roof, alloy wheels, ORVMs and even gets blue accents strewn across the exterior and interior panels.
Step inside and you’ll notice that the list of features on the new Figo now includes automatic headlamps, keyless entry-and-go, a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and even rain-sensing windshield wipers. Safety features have not been skimped out on too, customers now get front passenger seat belt restraint, side and curtain airbag and a new rear-view camera.
When it comes to powering the new Figo, the trusty 1.5-litre TDCi four-pot diesel continues its stint, along with the addition of two new petrol mills - the 1.2-litre and 1.5-litre Ti-VCT. The former produces 96PS with 120Nm of torque, while the latter bumps those figures up to 123PS of power and 150Nm of torque. What is also new is the availability of speccing the 1.5-litre Ti-VCT engine with a new 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission, the rest continue duty with a 5-speed manual. These engine options get an ARAI certified fuel economy of 20.4kmpl and 16.3kmpl for the 1.2- and 1.5-litre petrol engine, while the diesel gets a rating of 25.5kmpl.
