2017 Ford Figo S ready for launch


Ford India will soon add a new variant in its Figo lineup in the form of a Sports variant, which has been spied at one of the company’s dealership stockyard. The changes made to the Figo Sports will also be extended to the Aspire in the form of Aspire Sports. The new models are estimated to be launched sometime near the end of April or early May. According to the spied image, the new Figo variant gets some cosmetic updates such as mesh grille, black alloy wheels, black color ORVM’s and the door panels too get plastic moulding. In addition, the new variation also features dual tone shade on the exterior.


Under the hood, the new variant will be powered by the same 1.2 litre petrol engine, 1.5 liter petrol engine and 1.5 litre diesel engine. The 1.2 litre petrol engine churns out 112 Nm of torque and 87 hp of power, while the 1.5 litre diesel engine creates 215 Nm of torque and 98 hp of power. Both the engines are mated to five speed manual gear transmission. In addition, the hatch-back also gets a 1.5 litre petrol engine with automatic transmission and available only in Titanium & Titanium plus variants. The manual transmission is offered in all the variants of Figo- Base, Ambiente, Trend, Titanium and Titanium plus.


Inside the cabin, the new Figo variant might get some updates such as leather wrapped steering wheel and dual tone seat upholstery. It is expected that the new Figo variant might be a dual tone exterior colour variant, which might be offered on the higher variants. As for the prices, the new edition will be priced greater than standard Figo. The Sports variant could come with some extra features too but details are scant as of now.
