The Figo from Ford India was a make or break model in short. The Figo was supposed to be a model on which depended the future of Ford in India and it did just that. The Figo not only got Ford India back in the reckoning in the small car segment but also got Ford more than 20 car awards in the year 2010 which is no mean feat. The Figo's success single handedly showed the entire Indian auto industry what Ford India was capable of and that it should be taken seriously, very seriously. We have with us the super successful Ford Figo Diesel top of the line Titanium variant as our Long Term test car and we live with it day in and out to bring you what it really feels to own the current best seller from Ford.

The Ford Figo TDCI is powered by a 1.4litre CRDI engine that is a direct transplant from the elder brother Fiesta. This is a gem of a engine, the Figo we have has clocked more than 16,000kms and there is no sign of it aging. A big part of the success of the Figo is because of this CRDI engine. With 69PS of power @ 4000 RPM and a meaty 160 Nm of torque at as low as 2000 RPM this is a real good performer. As said this is the very same Diesel engine that also serves the Ford Fiesta and has been renowned for its performance and efficiency and now with the power to weight ratio advantage on the Figo its performance and efficiency ratings improve for the better on the Figo. Just for the records Ford has set up a huge Engine building facility on the outskirts of Chennai and their investment after seeing this engine is right on target. Coming back to the 1.4 TDCI engine, this is a highly refined unit and no harshness can be felt what so ever. This is a very drivable engine at low RPMs and power is available at slowest of speeds, just perfect for everyday commuting on busy city roads.
Noteworthy here is the engine roar that is audible and mind you its not a harsh Diesel clatter that we are speaking of but of a nice meaty purr that adds to the sporty acoustics and character. The Figo Diesel as we said earlier is a lot fun to drive on crowded roads, the engine has lots of torque to play at all RPMs.
The Ford Figo on the move, drives in a very sane manner. Power delivery is very linear and not frightening as seen on some other CRDI small cars. It is very evident that this 1.4 TDCI motor is more tuned towards efficiency rather than outright performance and is not at all underpowered at any rev range, nor is there any major turbo lag evident. The Figo TDCI has a very strong sane low end power and a strong mid range driving abilities, just perfect for daily up-downs. The 0-100kmph speed according to Ford officials is 15.8 seconds and we got the Figo TDCI to 100 in 16.2 seconds to be precise.
The Figo’s gear ratios are well sorted and spaced out, and drivability in any gear is near to perfect. We did'nt find any false shifts or harsh gear shifts, this is easily the best gearbox on a small car in this segment. Overtaking was not a problem anywhere on the Figo TDCI with the powerband always available at wide RPM.
As mentioned earlier the Figo TDCI is a fun to drive car, very driver oriented and has one of the best steering feedback that is available in the segment. The steering feels perfectly weighted and this is a big positive for the cars handling ability, it often brings out a grin on the driver. The Figo TDCI handles well and the body roll is negligible and that’s a big plus again for the Figo as compared to many of its rivals that have large amounts of body roll.
Coming to the ride quality, the Figo TDCI has its suspension tuned ideally for the harsh Indian conditions that you all are well versed with. This setup include independent McPherson Sturt with dual path mounts in the front and an semi – independent Twist Beam coils at the rear that crease out the bumpy roads and offer what we found as the best ride quality in this segment. The Figo TDCI Titanium drives on Goodyear GT3 with 175/65 R14 spec Tubeless Radials that play their role to the core in keeping the Figo planted at all speeds. The braking on the Figo is sharp and confidence boosting and not frightening. The front discs and rear drums offer good braking capabilities aided with ABS and EBD to bring the Figo to a secure halt. The biggest USP of the Figo is the drive feel which is very similar to a large sedan. This big car like drive feel goes in a long way in enhancing the Figos abilities. We were often reminded of the big brother Fiesta in many ways in terms of the drive character.
The Figo boasts of a large cabin space and this helps in the big car drive feel when the Figo is on the move. The cabin is silent with good NVH levels. Generous amount of space all around with loads of head and shoulder room and decent amount of leg room again is the Figo's another USP. Things like easy to read instrumentation, positioning of the boot opener just perfectly on the right of the instrument cluster, easy to use stereo/FM that also can connect to your mobile phone via the inbuilt Bluetooth module, open-shut mechanism on the AC vents man be small touches but they all add up in increasing the comfort and convenience on the Figo.
The seats are well cushioned and not very soft but near to perfect. Height adjusts on the driver's seat is a great boon for short people. Height and reach adjust on the steering is sorely missed. Front seats offer good comfort and under thigh support for long drives and the use of good seat fabric also increases the comfort level. Neat cubby holes and storage bins spread all around the cabin that come handy every day. The bonnet opener is situated on the left side which means if you enter a mall security check and are alone so you need to unbelt your seat belt and stretch to the left side to open the bonnet to open it. Door pads have bottle holders in them that can stalk 1 liter bottles easily. The arm rest on the door pads are neatly designed and offer good comfort during long drives. Rear seats offer good back support and under thigh comfort. The rear seats on the Figo have unified head-rests that is again a neat touch. The grouse here at the rear seat is the missing 40-60 split folding seats. The rear seats do fold down but you can't have them go down separately. Leg room at the rear is more than adequate even with the front seat set back at maximum. The Figo has one of the largest boot in the segment. 284litres to be precise, compare that to the Maruti Swift that has 213 litres of boot space and you will have a better picture of what we mean. You want more boot space then just fold down the rear seats and you get 370liters of increased space at the rear.
Keep checking this space as we go ahead with our Long Term Figo ownership review and speak more about the interiors, exteriors and touch all the corners of this successful car and try to find out its true virtues in our next update.
Things that could have made the Figo Diesel still better (Things we missed).
Rear Power Windows.
The Bonnet Opener On The Drivers Side.
Height Adjust On The Steering Missed.
Front Fog Lamps Missed (The Titanium Should Have Got Fog Lamps).
Dead Pedal Sorely Missed.
60-40 split rear seats.
Rear windows don’t go down fully.
No alloys on the top end variant.
Things We Just Loved On The Figo Diesel (Things that make the Figo good).
Boot Opener Conveniently located on the dash.
Capable, robust engine.
Big car feel with lots of space inside.
Largest boot best in class.
Bluetooth connectivity – MP3 player.
Panic braking warning tail lamps.
Lane changing indicators.
Hi Efficiency on the TDCI engine.
have u driven just 500kms since mar2010 till jun 2011.?the only grouse for most owners is FE which u seem 2b unaffected with.
I own a figo zxi petrol. Its great car, fun to drive, very comfortable, big car feel, owesome handling.
Hey Siva... I would like to know more about Figo Petrol in terms of its average as to compared to Swift petrol.... I am confused between both these... please reply to my mail Id your views.. it would be of great help for me to buy my first car
Also, FE is 16-17kmpl on highway when driving at 100kmph and 12-13kmpl in city. Achieved 18kmpl when driving at 80-90kmph.
Which variant you own. Petrol or Disel
i am getting exactly same with diesel titanium
I do agree with U I own March 2011 Model. I am getting 12.5 kmpl (Ac) 16.5 (Non AC) in city driving condition which is moderate. I get 18 kmpl (AC) Driving at 80 on highway. Ford dealerteam and Service Engineer has miserably failed to resolve the issue. There is inherent defect in Car. I am an Auto engineer by profession with MNC (Volvo) and having 30 yrs of experience. I have spoiled 7 referrals beacuse people ask for my advice. Now eben after 3 yrs issue is as it is.
car is really nice but not look good.
Its really fibulas car, I love to drive, its give you the pleasure of driving.
Its really fibulas car, I love to drive, its give you the pleasure of driving.
Have driven a petrol Zxi for 10 months / 8,000 kms. Absolutely in love with the car. Fuel efficiency is a concern. Not getting more than 11kmpl in the city.
So shall i go for this car titanium diesel.
ofcourse why not? I have completed it 20000 km, very nice, very nice.
may i know about maintenance for this car.
less than swift. periodic maintenance once in year or 10000 KM. For long drive its feel like such a big car. Till I spend Rs. 4000 only(20000Km, three PM). parts price also cheep. this vehicle made for average category, and comparing features it gives value for the money. But accessories (like fog lamps, spoiler )very costly. having very good stability and spacious. If you are a beginner, you cannot measure the power of this vehicle, really u feel like poor pickup, but if you are experienced then take it for a chasing, it will show the power. If it is winning 20 awards, definitely some thing should be there.
I second u Rajesh.
bast option in hachback diesal car
I own a FIGO ZXi TDCI (Diesel),i first car really best car in class-performance, maintenance free,good fuel efficient,city 17-19 km/Ltr based on traffic condition. highway - 22-24 Km/Ltr.best mileage i got was 26km with AC,with constant speed from blore-chennai. I have done 9000KM in 8 months
Can I know how do u evaluate the mileage ?
let ur car be with full tank as per company 45 Ltr with out any air block which may not allow u to make full tank.reset the trip meter to zero,drive the car between 60-80 KM/Ltr for the best mileage.when the trip meter is done around 600Km now topup ur tank till the neck.note how much ltr of fuel ur able to fill.now divide 600km with the amount of fuel u put.which says overall mileage of ur car
This is not a full proof approach. I suggest you try with == Note your DTE reading, meter reading at the refueling time, Fill in 20-30-40 ltrs of fuel.Then take the meter reading at the instant when DTE rolls back to the initial value as when you refueled. Divide this by quantity. The mileage in city won't be more than 14-15 kmpl (with AC on @40-60 kmph) and on highways it would be 18-19 (@ 80 - 100 kmph). If you disagree, let me know your driving speeds to achieve 17-19/ 22-24.
Hi Ravi, I am fond of figo but one thing i like to share with you that is milage. I am frequent driver from delhi to gaya (approx 1300 KM). Speeds i generally puts the speed on 90 to 110. In this condition milage we gate are only around of 13.5 KM/Ltr. This make a little costlier affairs for me.
one main thing is one should never change the fuel bunk,always fix one bunk.i use indian oil.i have never changed the bunk from the day one.city condition reduce gear shifting try always using top gear,the kms shown in DTE is just average its /- value.i have compared if you fill 45ltr DTE-700Km,thats 15.5 km.city i maintain between 40-60 highway 60-80km.the more u apply clutch mileage drops.when ever my driver drives its around 23-24 on highway,for me its 21-23 driving changes person to person.i guess you would heard about tata manza giving 43km /per ltr. i can give you another example- i won a yamaha rx135 company said average of 45km/ltr i was able to tune it to get 60km/ltr till 2 years its almost 11th year running i still get 48km/ltr its more than the average what was i assured.so bro it all depends how you maintain your veichle.if you want i can get more proved examples
You cannot be too sure of whether your 'DTE reading is precise, so it is better to go with what Arun has suggested and also, this is what is universally followed.
Are you kidding?? my titanium diesel has run 15000 km in 8 months and i do not get more than 17km/l with ac on at around 80-100 km/hr.I truly doubt that your stats are true.
1. Maintain front tyre - 30 PSI , Rear - 32 PSSI ( with 2 members/minimal luggage) 2.Drive 100km/hr on highways with AC on 3.Don't apply break very fast except critical condititions I've got 21.5 mileage last week,
How to check the fuel efficency...can you just tell me..i am owning diesel ford figo.. Suresh
Take the DTE reading at the time of filling up petrol/diesel and after filling the petrol/diesel. Deduct the highest value from lowest value and divide the difference with the litres filled. ensure you fill the same litres regularly. say I fill upto 1000 Rs, which comes upto 22.69L in Mumbai.
Kinshuk, can you please tell,what is DTE?
On Figo Dashboard, you have a black button. press it once, you will get trip kms, press it second time, you will get DTE number displayed.
Distance to Empty meter.
Correct..Distance to Empty Meter
the first sentence i can understand.. deduct the hgihest value from the lowest value..from where we have to take the highest and lowest value.. please clear me..in detail.. Thanks in advance. suresh
Well there are two ways to calculating fuel efficiency or mileage. option one: Note the DTE reading, before filling diesel. After the tank is filled up to brim, note the Diesel reading. Deduct the first reading from the second one, divide the remainder value with the liters of diesel filled in. You get your fuel efficiency. Option two: suggested earlier by arun in above post and it is suggested way of Ford Motors as well. Fill your car with full tank as per company, it should be 45 Ltr with out any air blockage. Reset the trip meter to zero,drive the car between 60-80 KM/Ltr for the best mileage. When the trip meter is done around 600Km Topup your tank till the diesel lid. note how much ltr of fuel your able to fill. now divide 600km with the amount of fuel u put.which says overall mileage of ur car
Can somebody tell, is it worthy to buy ford figo EXI diesel as compare to Maruti Swift (diesel) LDI, becaz price of both cars near Rs5.50 lacs
Don't cry for Ford....it dosn't matter how they looks or how people feel about it but the fact is quality of Ford's vehicle is too lo to consider a buy.
hi i am mahesh a travel operator, kindly stop all about the ford try fiat just imagine my punto have run almost 267,000 kilometer in india for 2 years still the engine nosie is very smooth and mileage is 24.7 in high way believe or not even swift is running with fiat engine...............
very true mahesh..........fiat makes the best diesel engines
Another bullshit from Ford.......just look at the Ford's cars, they are looking 05year old in 01years time.......poor quality!
Sohail, get your facts in place, before posting such a post.
Mr Sohail Its not problem of Ford, actual problem lies in person who is looking toward the things. It seems you already madeup your mind against the Ford, so you are finding the faults only. After all it all depends on your care @ ur car. I have ford vehicle from last 9 years still looking as new as no maintaince uptill total kms drive 192000.
Mr. sohali khan..... wat ford is in poor qulaity...? No Never..... U must maintain the car as ur child...... if u dont wash ur car or putting only petrol and drive means every car is poor......
Thanks for your suggetions, but who cares of stinky Ford (except Mustang and Edge, which is not available in India) when we have brilliant VW Polo, sexy Fiat Punto and racy MS Ritz on sale.
hi, we are talking about figo. pls. before commenting you have to take test drive in city, highway as well as hill way and feel the Electronic power steering's efficiency, it gives very good drive ability and stability on all types of roads. don't compare with polo, ritz and punto bcose price, space and features are concern. My 1.4 Titanium Squeeze completed 1 year and 20000 KM, its look like a brand new. Till I spend Rs. 3900 only for periodic maintenance.
I own a Ford Figo Titanium Diesel variant. I can solely vouch for awesome handling, fun drive, 18.6 Kms on Highway with AC on 2nd point (You have drive between 110-125 Kmph only), 13.8 Kms in city (You have to drive between 70-80 Kmph only).. I have driven around 12600 Kms in 9 months.. Zero Maintenance, though regular checkup, once in two months must be your habit.
I second you on the mileage. Thats exactly what I am getting too.
Ford dealers are not customer friendly, to get a feel of it visit Trichy dealer at Karumandapam (Tamilnadu).Customers will be taken for granted and for any spare they will very politely refuse at their convenience and guide us to look for it in Chennai or any other place as they seem to be so busy.Make a visit once and you will give up the idea of buying it.
Very Very Poor Pickup, Hell out of it. I own Figo petrol, run only 3000kms.
Hello sir... Figo petrol is very very low pick up.....? In this small car segment figo is very good in pick up and very very fantastic to drive..... If ur car is in low pick up means go a head for good pick up car like verna,altis higher end model........ Figo is chanceless i own figo petrol for ma dad..... I am using skoda octavia 1.9tdi..... Figo is equlaent to skodas pick up.... i feel lik tat oly....
and scoda fabia also
dont wory, its bigner's problem, u will realise the fact later and u wil be like it.
Dear Car Dekho Management, Put Always new post should be on top. Sort New Post on the Top.
I have Figo Diesel Exi and it clocked 4000km. I am fully satisfied with the performance (21km/l on highways with a/c) and a big-car feel.
REALY BEST THIS CAR
REAR WIDTH NARROW AS COMPARED TO FRONT WIDTH . IT IS MAJOR DRAWBACK OF FORD FIGO . DO YOU KNOW
you r correct, what is the drawback of it? please explain
pls. Explain. 3 person can sit very comfortably on back seat and boot space having 284 ltrs , is this draw back? Swift how much is there?
FIAT PUNTO & MARUTI SWIFT CARS LOOK MUSCULAR AS COMPARED TO FIAT PUNTO. ARE YOU AGRRE.
Ford Fie go is a fabulous car ,I drove it for more than 11000 km in 6 month with an average of 19/km in diesel .I tried two other cars but not as smooth as fiego.
I bought the Ford Figo Titanium on 26th March and i just 3 months I have driven almost 11k Km and i felt tremendous comfort in driving especially while driving from Pune to B'glore. Got the mileage of around 18-19Kmpl while driving in highway. What i liked most was ABS which gives me high driving confidence on highways as I cuould easily drive at speed of 120-130km/hr. Inside noise is almost zero inspite of being a diesel car.
Another bullshit from Ford.......just look at the Ford's cars, they are looking 05year old in 01years time.......poor quality!(good)
I m planning for Ford Figo Diesel....Is there any major diff between the Lxi and Exi model?? Can some one tell this.
If you visit the showroom, you will find a sheet which specifies the difference. The Sales person will also able to help.,
Dear Cardekho team, Can you please tell us the FTT % ( first time through) for FIGO, I10, I20.
Pls suggest to me for buy a new car : option maruti swift Deisal VDI version or Ford figo Titaniem version and why ??
Hafiz, if this is your first car, then I will suggest for Figo Diesel Titanium. However, you must know, what are you looking to have in your car. If you love to go on long drives, want car AC to be excellent, want rear wiper, want an awesome sound system in your car, want comfort in driving with no pain on your shoulders, excellent space for rear people to sit.. And very important, have daily drive of above 30 kms one way, then diesel is the need and Ford Figo diesel titanium is the car.. Else you can opt for Maruti Swift or Fiat Punto in petrol versions. Ford Figo Petrol is not worth it.
My Daily Running is 36 km. Please suggest whether i should opt for Diesel vehicle or Petrol? If Diesel then Ritz or Ford Figo? If Petrol How is I 10?
@ Ameet - For your usage a petrol car is best suited, if diesel go for the Figo as its got a larger cabin, big boot and a nice sedan like drive feel.
One of my friend is using ford Figo (diesel). As per him. its require more maintenance and maintenance is expensive. Like simple service cost @ 3.5k, is that right?
@Vipin - A regular service costs about Rs.2500 and a major service costs Rs. 4500 for the Figo.
I second Ford's TDCI engine performance. Its awesome. I am using Ford Ikon Diesel for past 2.5 years and clocked 67000kms. IKON's diesel engine is not as refined as Figo's or Fiesta's but still it does the business in a very efficient manner. No turbo lag, easy to drive in crowded streets and mileage is just great. Ford'd petrol engine doesn't worth that much.
i m planning to buy ford figo diesel, but draw back is that there is no rear power windows in any of figo model. is there any model with rear power windows.
None of the models have rear power window. Tho I have never faced the need to do so....
The reason for no power windows on rear is because it has large bootspace. When you are inside the car, you will realize the rear door is large. hence not required.
@sanjaypaul - There is no power window on any version of the Figo but that should not stop you from buying this good car.
I own figo diesel-Exi varient .16kmpl is with AC & mixed road condition,but even free service is costly.
sir,only want to know or i always got confused what should i purchase ford figo or tata indigo ecs. Kindly guide me, who is better??????
Dear Rupesh, I own Figo petrol. I am very much Convinced with TATA INDICA VISTA in all aspects when compared to Figo.
m confused amoung figo-d, i20-d , swift-d, fabia-d and punto-d. one is cheap,another1 is classic,some other is people's favourite. Its very very difficult to decide. Performance is more or less same in all cases. Swift has got people's acceptance, fabia,figo has got price advantage. I20,punto has got style n performane but a bit costlier than their counter parts.. Pls advise on what to do,which 1 to choose??? Regard
Hi Puneet, If highest ranked parameter on your requirement list is Maintenance Cost GO for Swift, But swift is priced slightly heavily because most of the features are not part of standard vehicle like - Audio systems, Remote locking for some models, etc. Swift VDI (6 months booking )- 6.7 Lakh Audio, etc extra. If Brand is the Only concern GO for Polo, Fabia == Along with maintaining the Brand get ready to pay for the heavy maintenance, Localization levels are very low, very costly parts. Polo Emb - 8.2 Lakh, Fabia top end: 7.5 L i20 - Is good in all aspects but costly for no reason. On road: 8L Micra - Space is a concern, Pricing is again on a heavier side compared to swift and figo. 7.5L Punto - Is conventional, Fiat product, always good. 7.2L Overall, Figo wins on Value for money equation. Well priced, easy to maintain, 100% locally manufactured in chennai. 6.7L NB: My comparisons were broadly based on top end variants with ABS, Airbags, etc with approx. on road prices in bangalore. After reading it feels like I am selling Figo, But that was summary of my analysis I did before buying one
I own a Figo ZXI petrol version, no doubt it is a excellent car to drive with zero mentanance but what has disappointed me personally is the fact that there is no usb/pen drive connection with the music system, u have to procure it from your dealer with a price. It is a great disadvantage and disheartening especially for music lovers and also when you go for long drives
@ Bidyut Bose - You can connect a USB cable that Ford provides at its dealership that connects at the rear of the music player. This cable is for Rs. 1200/- Plus taxes and the fitting would be costing Rs. 200/-. Hope this solves your query.
Hi everyone, I wanted to go for ford figo.This will be my first car.So i need suggestions for which variant to go for.Kindly help. BR, Sachin.
@sachin - If your daily useage is heavy and you have the budget then the Diesel TDCi is the variant to get, getting the version is entirely to your wish and requirement.
Car is nice & with a very responsive engine. The mud flap are made of a bit bigger in size they touches at bumps & get damaged. It should have glass holder in front console.Otherwise car is well designed in its segment.
Dear carDekho Team Pl suggest me i am searching for low maintenance,fuel efficiency diesel car budget near about 4.5 to 5.5 lac.
My comment got deleted..?? since i wrote something against figo they hav deleted..i think ford has bribed
Guys, I am driving Santro since last 8 years and its maintenance is killing me. I want to go for Diesel as my daily drive up/down is about 40 Kms. I liked FIGO a lot but then with A/C on, this car struggles on up-hill roads. My mechanic says that FORD is very expensive to maintain. Only other option seems to be Swift VDI where I need to pay more for inflated Maruti's ego. FIGO seems to be value for money, but Swift seems to be more fun car to drive around.. Any ideas what would be a good buy? (PS - Also looking fwd to see Chevy Beat's Diesel launch)
EXCELLANT CAR OF THE YEAR
i perchase car april 2011 after 4158 k m i feel that good performence. no other segment in this hback like ( swift or i20 or punto or indica ) realy love figo

How to pair Blackberry with Figo? Tried a lot but no luck!
Is this car really suits for a taller person if not please suggest alternatives in same segment.
r the engines reliable of diesel figois it as reliable as toyotas??if it clocks more than a lac will it b sturdy i know if maintained properly n servicing as scheduled...
I am planning to buy my first car, my daily running will be more than 50 kms. I have zeroed on 2 models Figo Titanium and Hyundai i20 Magna CRDI. Which car should i buy?
Hi All Bought MY Diesel titanium Figo on Jan 28th Kms done 5700 90 % long drive 10 % local in city city mileage 15 or 16 some times got 18 long sane below or with in 80 kmph ride with A/C 26 kmpl (tested both by DTE and tank full) under rough ride on long peaked up to 160 kmph got 18 kmpl this is my first car bought 10 days after get licensed, spent only 1200 rupees for the first oil change with oil filter and other consumer ables its a suberb car in terms of outright performance with acceptable mileage and comfort
I do own diesel titanium, But I wonder how to get 26kmpl ?????????
lol Ravi m with u. i doubt whether these guys even knows 2 calculate it correctly.
@ ashish why you stops there go ahead and say tata people doesn't know how to calculate mileage as they prove 40 kmpl mileage on 1 ltr that too in manza for your info this is how i calculated tank full till the brim note down the kms and after 312 kms again filled able to hold 12 ltrs 314 / 12 = 26.16 so i said 26 on another occation calculated using DTE (distance to empty it shows 70 (tank will go empty after approx 70 kms) reset trip meter to zero added 10 ltrs after 4 hours it again shows 70 kms to empty now the trip meter shows 253 253 /10 = 25.3
Well you need not inform me how to calculate cause otherwise we would not having this discussion. I have calculated the mileage for n number of times and still i do not get more than 18km/l on highway. Two of my friends also owns figo and got the same result with them too. If instead of the sales department you ask a service department guy at a ford dealer he will say 18km/l with ac on. So i cannot help but wonder at what speeds and which gear do you drive to get such great mileage. And get your facts straight first of all. A tata dealer will tell you manza gives a mileage on 18km/l for diesel. So what do you want me to believe now??
Hi, That's true and the lates promo camp of tata showing manza giving 40 km/l is also true. Am not confusing you, both are true because mileage depends on several factors. My figo is 6000 kms old and my driving is almost 90% highway and 10% local. And during the initial run in time my driving was only highway (bangalore to kanyakumari route) as you know on highway run clutch, gear shifting is very much less in comparison to city drive, I believe that made my figo engine settle in good form. Am not an expert but I believe it all depends on how we maintain and how we drive it......
hi i m plang to buy figo diesel but d matter is abt mantce and tyres of figo runs only 15000 km is it true plz suggest
driving is good,i like the car and funny to drive,but no air quality control
what abt the maintanance cost of figo compared with sift diesel...................................
hi ram..i own one and finished 13000 kms...lets first think about the cost..top end figo will cost u around 7.13 and swift around 8.13..that makes a diff of 100000...so wen it comes to maintainence though swift may be bit cheaper u already have 100000 saving from figo, so overall wen u calculate ul still end up paying less for figo over a period of 5 years
i own a figo diesel from 7 months...i feel i made a great and right choice..its got power, comfort and feel of a sedan as rightly mentioned above..mileage is anywhere between 16-17kmpl...its handy in traffic and makes u feel comfortable...powerful a/c is wat i like the most....looks could have been better, but can be compromised for overall performance...2 things i didnt like.... bad headlights(could have been bit powerful) 2nd the bonet opener is made of some cheap fibre and gets stuck quiet often....my ratings 7.5/10
I drove 130000 km in 5 months,no complaints..its great car..
Is it 13000 km or 1,13,000 km....?? I'm planning to buy one....
i own a ford figo titanium diesel from 18 months...i feel i made a great and right choice..its got power, comfort and feel of a sedan as rightly mentioned above..mileage is anywhere between 21.4 kmpl. withe a/c 35000 kms
Ford figo is always the car in its class
