Ford India’s success with the Figo is a testament to the value for money proposition that the Figo is. Adding a feature found in pricier cars moves to lay down the ‘value for money’ tag in concrete. The new steering column mounted audio controls are available only on the ZXI and Titanium variants of the new Figo.
We have to admit we were caught slightly off guard when reading through the new Figo’s features again. Steering column mounted audio controls are something this correspondent isn’t familiar with and we started wondering how ergonomically sound these might be.

Turns out current users think these are fantastic compared to the conventional controls.
Ford has of course moved on from the column mounted controls onto the steering mounted controls as we’ve seen in the new Fiesta. The column mounted controls, shared with numerous other Ford models in the USA and Europe is probably what enables Ford to provide the feature at this price. We shall reserve our opinion until we drive the car.
