Ford Figo

The great American automaker, Ford, is invading their competitor’s markets by introducing the new Figo into the Indian market. The Figo is part of Fords ‘One Vision’ and ‘One Team’ and ‘One World’ project. The launch of Ford Figo is all set in the first week of February.

The Figo is based on Ford’s Global-B platform and promises to offer, economy, safety, driving dynamics, value for money and hopes to establish new benchmarks as the vehicle goes on sale next year. The Figo – roughly Polo sized – will be powered by a 1.2 litre petrol and a 1.5 litre diesel engine.

The car is expected to come bonded with 1200cc Dura-tec engine which could produce maximum power of 70BHP @ 6250 rpm and maximum torque of 104Nm @ 4000 rpm. The fuel consumption in the city will be 12 kmpl and 15kmpl on the highways.

The price of Ford Figo is expected to be 3.5 Lakh (ex-showroom) in Delhi. The Ford Figo will be produced from the Chennai plant of Ford, and Ford said that the company has invested US $ 500 million in the plant. With Ford’s 500 million USD investment into India and the Figo’s announcement today, Ford is quite serious about grabbing a chunk of small car sales for itself in India.
