Ford Figo hatchback is ready to receive a mid-life update in the Indian market. It seems that the American carmaker will also add a CNG variant to the new Ford Figo 2018 facelift lineup. A prototype of the new Figo CNG variant was recently caught on camera during its testing rounds. Though, there is no official word about the launch of the Figo CNG model.
The spotted model features a new dual-tone rear bumper and a CNG moniker on the rear windshield. Under the hood, the new Ford Figo CNG version might house a new 1.2-litre, three-cylinder Dragon series petrol engine. While the standard 12.L gasoline motor delivers 95bhp with 115Nm of torque, the power figure of the CNG variant will be slightly lower. Transmission on offer could be a 5-speed manual gearbox.
