The Ford Figo Cross looks bolder than the regular hatchback, thanks to the side cladding with faux skid plates underneath. Up front, sits a black mesh grille, instead of multiple chrome slats, along with slightly redesigned bumpers compared to the Figo. The rear bumpers have also been redesigned and the Figo, in its Cross avatar, also gets roof rails and chunkier 15-inch wheels. It is expected to sit around 15-20mm higher than the stock Figo to make it capable off-road.
The interiors are a lot different than the Figo twins as it does away with the cluttered central console to make way for the touchscreen infotainment system from the EcoSport. It is a Ford SYNC 3 infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

The transmission options will comprise of a 5-speed manual and, perhaps, a 6-speed automatic transmission as well.
