Ford has unveiled the face lift Figo in two new colours ‘Kinetic Blue’ and ‘Bright Yellow’ and we like what we see! Building on the principles of Kinetic Design, Ford has further enhanced the lines on the Figo. A new-look front fascia with a hexagonal grill and redesigned headlamps injects fresh life into the Figo. The headlamps is not just aesthetic. Addressing the customers need for better illumination, Ford has increased the reflective area for better throw of light. Ford says the New Figo also has improved engine calibration to deliver higher acceleration during first few seconds resulting in better pick up. Shifting gears requires less effort.
The most prominent interior design change would be the new ‘Riviera Blue’ instrument panel. New Double Bulb weather strips on doors further reduce noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels inside the cabin.
Steering column mounted radio controls look fantastic, and the entire unit is shared with that on the European spec Ford Fiesta Mk6 and the older US spec Focus ST. The new steering column mounted audio controls are available only on the ZXI and Titanium variants.
Ford also points the seating comfort has improved with lumbar support and head rest adjustment. New 14” alloy wheels on the Titanium variant and wheel covers have also been redesigned for a sportier look. Watch this space as we bring you a First Drive report soon.
