The Figo facelift gets more features than before and a fresh set of petrol engines. But can it better the segment leading Swift on paper?

Ford has launched the facelifted 2019 Figo hatchback at prices starting from Rs 5.15 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It is Ford’s entry-level model in India and competes in the midsize hatchback segment. The new Figo now gets more features than before along with minor cosmetic updates. But how does the new package hold up against similarly priced variants of the segment leader, Maruti Swift.

But first, let’s have a look at the proportions, engines and prices of the two hatchbacks.

Dimensions

  • The Figo is longer than the Swift, and has a longer wheelbase too.
  • The Swift is wider and taller than the Ford.

  • The Swift is significantly lighter than the Figo, even in its heaviest variant.

Engines

Petrol

  • The 2019 Figo gets a pair of new 3-cylinder Dragon series petrol engines that are amongst the most powerful and torquiest in the segment.
  • Ford only offers a petrol-automatic option with the larger 1.5-litre engine which comes paired to a 6-speed torque convertor.

  • Maruti offers a higher fuel economy from its petrol engine in both manual and automatic variants.

Diesel

  • The outgoing Figo’s 1.5-litre diesel engine has been carried forward. It is still the most powerful diesel engine in its segment, and the one with the most torque too.
  • The Swift’s 1.3-litre diesel engine not only offers better fuel efficiency, but also comes with an AMT option for added convenience.

  • Ford, however, does not offer an automatic option with the diesel engine.

Here are the prices of the variants that we will be comparing. Prices of all variants are mentioned at the end of the article.

Verdict: The 2019 Figo would be our pick over the Swift, especially in the case of the diesel variant, where it’s more feature-rich and yet more affordable. For petrol buyers, Figo’s additional features like day/night IRVM, rear parking sensors and auto door lock will offer convenience and it will be worth spending Rs 16,000 on the Figo petrol Ambiente over the Swift Lxi. However, if you have a small child in the family, the Maruti offers ISOFIX child seat anchors which are not available on the Figo. And in this case, you should pick the Swift.

Swift VDI

Rs 6.96 lakh

Ford Figo 2019

Verdict: The Figo diesel Titanium is an easy pick here over the Swift VDi as it is significantly better equipped and completely justifies the extra cost. However, the Figo does not offer ISOFIX child seat mounts unlike the Maruti hatchback. So those with a small child in the family are better off picking the Swift for the safety of the child.

Ford Figo 2019 Titanium 1.2P vs Maruti Swift ZXI

Maruti Suzuki Swift

Verdict: With the ISOFIX anchors, the Swift ZXi should continue to be the pick for those who often travel with a child. But for everyone else, the Figo Titanium petrol makes for a more sensible purchase.

Ford Figo 2019 Titanium Blu 1.5D vs Maruti Swift ZDI

Figo Titanium Blu

2019 Ford Figo Facelift: In 25 Detailed Images

Verdict: Despite its premium, the top-spec Figo is the one we’d pick at this price point because of the extra features and added safety of six airbags. However, it still misses out on ISOFIX child seat anchors which are offered as standard on the Swift.

Ford Figo 2019 Titanium Blu 1.2P vs Maruti Swift ZXI+

Titanium Blu

Rs 6.94 lakh

Verdict: Between the top-spec variants of the petrol-manual Swift and the Figo, the Swift is our pick despite the significant premium. It has everything the Ford hatch should have had in terms of top-spec features and also justifies the extra cost.

Verdict: Purely in terms of value for money and the added features, the Swift ZXI+ AMT is the car to pick here. The Figo’s torque converter automatic transmission is the more sophisticated automatic transmissions of the two and that’s what makes it more expensive.
