Under the skin, both regular Titanium and Sports edition are identical. The petrol powered trim derives power from the 1.2-litre, four-cylinder unit makes 87bhp of power and 112Nm of torque. The power figure for the 1.5-litre diesel engine also remains unchanged at 99bhp and 215Nm. Both the engine gets the conventional 5-speed manual unit missing out on the dual clutch automatic gearbox.
Ford has claimed to change suspension set up. It has more stiff now providing better handling and ride quality. This has been achieved by shortening the springs by 10mm to make space for the larger 15-inch wheels wrapped with 155/65/R15 tyres. The tyres with better width offer improved grip while on the go and the Sports edition handles better.
Even though both regular and Sports variants draw power from the same set of engines, there is a minor difference in their fuel economy. The petrol version delivers around 18.12kmpl, as compared to the regular Figo petrol claimed to return 18.16 kmpl. Diesel Sports on the other hand can do 24.29kmpl as against the 24.29kmpl by the regular one.
