Ford Indian is working on the updated Figo. The facelifted Figo was caught testing on the out skirts of Chennai, the home destination of Ford currently. Ford will give the Figo hatchback some much needed dose.
The Figo has been a success ever since it was first launched in 2009. The Figo was Ford’s solution to enter the hatchback segment which is currently the largest in the Indian market.
Thanks to our friends at Motor Vikatan who have snapped the Figo facelift. The changes seem minimal which will be confined to new tail lamps, slightly refreshed headlamps and hopefully revised interiors. We hope Ford does get a solution and introduce rear power windows which is missing and is a common feature amongst competiton.
Ford plans to export the Figo to 50 new markets and a refreshed could help to meet higher standards in terms of interior quality. Ford may reshuffle the features to get the Figo back to its price position value and will continue to be powered by the same engines.
Ford needs more products to complement the Figo and a car under the Figo would be ideal. The next big launch from the American car maker is the new EcoSport SUV which the company will price very aggressively to take on the competition.
