The 2019 Ford Figo will be the most powerful car in its category.
Ford has officially released the pictures of the new Figo facelift ahead of the scheduled launch on March 15, 2019. This is the brand’s second model launching this year, first being the new Endeavour facelift introduced few weeks ago. The new model receives subtle changes to exterior and interior along with new set of engines. Bookings for the new model have already been started.
Talking about styling, the 2019 Ford Figo facelift looks largely identical to the refreshed Ka+ hatchback available in the European markets. It features a new chrome-finished honeycomb grille, new bumpers, re-profiled headlights and tail-light, and larger 15-inch alloy wheels.
The 2019 Ford Figo will be available in 3 trim levels – Ambiente, Titanium and the top-spec Titanium BLU. The range-topping model features dual-tone body paint with contrasting roof, new blackened grille and differently styled alloys.
The interior of the Figo facelift will be shared with the new Aspire facelift and Freestyle. It features a restyled dashboard and several new comfort and convenience features. The hatchback gets keyless entry, push-button start, automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers and a touchscreen infotainment system. It misses out on Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support. Also See – Made-in-India Ford C-SUV confirmed
The new Figo facelift will meet the upcoming safety and crash test norms. Dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, brake assist, rear parking sensors, seatbelt reminder and a speed-alert system will be offered as standard. The top-spec model will offer segment-best six-airbags.
Biggest change will be made under the hood. The 2019 Ford Figo will be available with 3 engine options – a new 96bhp, 1.2-litre Dragon petrol with a new 5-speed manual gearbox, a 123bhp, 1.5-litre turbo petrol with a 6-speed torque convertor automatic gearbox and a 99bhp, 1.5-litre diesel with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
