Ford is all set to launch the small car “Figo” in the first week of February. This will be Ford’s maiden entry in the already crowed small car segment. Volkswagen just showed their small car the Polo at the auto expo.
Ford Figo is expected to be priced very competitively and will go on head on head to the Maruti Swift the leader of this segment. Maruti has just launched the new upgraded Swift and will be in the showrooms very shortly.
Ford Figo will be priced around 3.6-5 lakhs. It will be offered in both the petrol and diesel options.
