2019 Ford Figo facelift is more powerful and affordable than the Maruti Suzuki Swift.
Ford Figo, the popular hatchback from the American carmaker, recently received a mid-cycle update in India. Unlike the previous model, the new Ford Figo 2019 facelift comes in three trims – Ambiente, Titanium and Titanium Blu – priced between Rs 5.15 lakh – Rs 8.09 lakh (all, ex-showroom Delhi). This makes the new model more affordable than its pre-facelift version. In fact, the new Figo becomes less expensive than its arch rival – Maruti Suzuki Swift.
While the fully loaded 1.5L Titanium Blu trim of the new Ford Figo 2019 facelift costs Rs 6.94 lakh (petrol) – Rs 7.74 lakh (diesel), the range-topping Swift petrol is available at Rs 7.40 lakh and the diesel is priced at Rs 8.37 lakh. That means, the new Figo makes a better deal with some additional features including 6 airbags, leather wrapped steering wheel, automatic headlamps and wipers, automatic day/night inside RVM, contrast roof, black grille and wing mirrors.
