And now, the Indian wing of the company, Ford India Private Limited, established on March 15, 2019 as the new launch date of the Ford Figo Facelift 2019 in India. In fact, the renewed model of Ford has already begun to reach the exhibition halls.
Competition: Interestingly, it remains to be seen how well Figo’s new model will perform in competition with the best-selling four-wheel vehicles in India, such as the Hyundai Grand i10 and Maruti Suzuki Swift, and also without the possible rivalry of big hatchbacks such as Hyundai. Elite i20 and Maruti Suzuki Baleno.
Exterior: The model designed for India is almost similar to the new Ka +, which is the name of the Ford hatchback in Europe that apparently was unveiled in 2018. The exterior of the new Ford Figo will have a more premium appeal the honeycomb front grille features a chromed metal finish, redesigned front and rear bumpers, redesigned and redesigned headlights. In addition, another welcome addition to the Ford Figo 2019 India model will be the new set of 15-inch larger alloy wheels. The Ford Figo 2019 will sport a renewed facade similar to the Ford Aspire 2019 sedan. For example, a new radiator grille called “3D cellular grille” seen in the sedan variant.
Engine: The 2019 Figo’s key upgrade will be on the powerplant, which will happen to be Ford’s latest engine, the 1.2-litre petrol motor that will churn out 96 hp at 6,500 rpm and 120 Nm of peak torque at 4,250 rpm, and will be paired to a five-speed manual transmission. The top-end Figo petrol-automatic variant will now get Ford’s new 1.5-litre motor that will churn out 123 hp at 6,500 rpm and 150 Nm of max torque at 4,500 rpm and will be mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox, replacing the dual-clutch gearbox.

Interior improvements: The interior of the Ford Figo 2019 will also be impressive. The features of the 2019 Ford Figo Facelift will include automatic headlights, keyless entry, start button, touch-screen infotainment system and windshield wipers with rain detection technology. But the new Figo 2019 model will come without Ford’s Sync3 smart system, which has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The new Ford hatchback will comply with safety regulations, respecting the new standards and safety regulations that will be effective as of April 2019; therefore, the new Figo will have ABS, rear parking system with sensors, safety belt warning system and a speed alert system as standard. The high-end Figo variant will also include 6 first-class airbags and adjustable headrests at the rear.
Expected price: As the Figo reserves are taken, it leftovers to be seen whether the Ford Figo Facelift price of the Ford Figo 2019 in India will be spirited sufficient to compete with Hyundai Grand i10, Maruti Swift and VW Polo. It is predictable that the new Ford Figo facial renewal model in 2019 will be between Rs. 5-8 lakh.
