Ford launches 2019 Figo at Rs 5.15 lakh
After launching the MY19 Endeavour last month, Ford has launched the MY 2019 Figo. While the base Ambiente variant costs Rs 5.15 lakh, the top-spec Titanium variant retails at Rs 8.09 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Ford claims to have done more than 1200 changes including a redesigned front and rear, and bigger spoked alloys in the Blu Edition. The base variant of the MY19 Figo is Rs 67000 cheaper than its predecessor. All the variants of the facelifted Figo are cheaper than the variants of its predecessor. The base variant of the Figo is equipped with safety features including ABS with EBD, dual airbags and engine immobiliser.
There are three engine options – 1.2-litre petrol, 1.5-litre petrol and 1.5 litre diesel engine. While the petrol engines are available with a choice of both 5-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions, the diesel variant gets only a 5-speed manual. The 5-speed manual transmission is new and Ford claims that it is almost 15 per cent lighter, which helps to reduce NVH and increase fuel efficiency. It also requires 40 per cent lesser gear oil than the outgoing model, says Ford. The facelifted Figo also gets the 1.2-litre TiVCT engine for the first time, which makes 94bhp and 120Nm. Fuel efficiency is a claimed 20.4kmpl.

The Titanium Blu variant is equipped with safety features including six airbags, ESP, traction control and hill launch assist. It gets features including 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, rain sensing wipers and automatic headlamps. The Blu trim also gets dual tone roof, blue accents on the outside and inside, 15-inch alloys and cellular grille.

“As a brand, Figo has been a preferred choice of first-time car buyer thanks to the practicality and value on offer. Suited for the fast-paced lifestyle of today’s customers, the 2019 Ford Figo continues to surprise on every count – be it looks, the fun of driving attributes, safety and not to miss, the most-affordable ownership experience.”
The facelifted Figo is available in three variants – Ambiente, Titanium and Titanium Blu. The MY2019 Figo also gets a segment-first 5 Year/ 100,000km warranty. Ford has also compared the MY19 Figo to the Maruti Suzuki Swift, and claims that the Figo will offer savings up to Rs 60,000. What do you think? Will you go for the facelifted Figo or the Maruti Suzuki Swift? The latter starts at Rs 4.99 lakh for the base variant, going all the way to Rs 8.84 lakh for the top spec automatic variant.
