Ford Figo 2019 launched with new engine and cosmetic upgrades
Ford India has launched the facelift version of the Ford Figo hatchback car for this year. The Ford Figo 2019 is updated with front fascia, new bumper and honeycomb grille, new headlights and 15-inch alloy wheels.
The new Figo 2019 is available in three variants – Ambiente, Titanium and Titanium Blu . The Titanium Blu is the top variant and comes with premium features .
The Figo 2019 features subtle cosmetic updates, including reworked front and rear bumpers, updated headlamps and a mesh grille like the one seen on the Aspire facelift. On the inside, the 2019 Figo gets a new dashboard that is similar to that of the Aspire and the Freestyle. However, the Figo gets an all-black finish whereas the Aspire gets a beige treatment and the Freestyle gets a dual-tone black-and-brown cabin.
In the interior the Ford Figo 2019 comes with new SYNC 3 touchscreen infotainment system, which is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A refurbished dashboard along with fresh upholstery is provided.
The most significant update on the Figo facelift is under the bonnet. It gets a new set of petrol engines. The old 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine has been replaced by the Freestyle’s new 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder unit. It produces 96PS of power and 120Nm of torque (up by 8PS and 8Nm). The petrol-automatic version has ditched the older 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder motor and now features the 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder unit that powers the EcoSport. It produces 123PS and 150Nm (up by 11PS and 14Nm). The 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine, on the other hand, has been carried forward as is. It churns out 100PS and 215Nm.
The 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines are offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox while the 1.5-litre petrol unit is only available with a 6-speed torque convertor. It replaces the 6-speed dual clutch automatic seen on the pre-facelift Figo.
As far as features are concerned, the new Figo is better equipped than before. It gets dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors and seatbelt reminder for front passengers as standard. It also gets side and curtain airbags (segment-first), but they are limited to the top-spec Titanium Blu variant. The Titanium automatic variant gets some exclusive features like traction control (TC), hill launch assist (HLA) and electronic stability program (ESP).
Comfort and convenience features on offer include auto headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs, keyless entry, push button start, auto AC and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and navigation.
The 2019 Figo facelift renews its rivalry with the Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Hyundai Grand i10.
