Pros : smart car, stlish look, good interior, comfort,


I am planning to buy a new premium class smart car models in India. I have already choose between Ford Figo and Volkswagen polo. Figo has latest car compare to its other Polo vehicle. I have got a some information about Ford Figo is better than Volkswagen Polo according to Accleration. Volkswagen Polo accleration lower than Ford Figo. On of other comparison in both cars are following by the maximum power Polo's power much more to the Ford Figo, it said by the auto car site. I was reading some other reviews in Volkswagen Polo tht its lower accleration delivers good power in the undan ways. Ford Figo is better to all features and also some elements. But I think, Volkswagen Polo will going well in the market more than other premium segment cars in Indian auto market. According to comfortableness that both should be given a good space in Interior the view.

  • Anurag |19 Mar,2010 11:08:04 AM

    As per my opinion that both cars are very well.....................

  • Bhaskar Sindam |20 Mar,2010 01:38:47 AM

    any one can advise me whether to go FIGO PETROL, OR FIGO DIESEL, my mileage is restricted to monthly 800 kms on an average.

    upadesh lade |10 Mar,2011 01:54:24 PM

    hi bhaskar same pbkm is mine i also restricte to 900 km but when u calculate petrol cost then u find that on diesel model u can save so much money . n think 4 future currently u run 800 & possibility in future it will increase. so better u go 4 the diesel just i do

    Manikrao Khule-Patil |25 Oct,2011 06:35:40 PM

    Today U R telling 800km/month, but once U buy, running picks up as a human tendency of movement & find comfort. It is always safer, in this way, to go Diesel Model. If U strictly going to restrict monthly running around 800 hundred then Petrol is better. All the time the budgeet is imp.its up to U. Manikrao Khule-Patil Pune.

  • venketagiri R |20 Mar,2010 09:38:35 AM

    The volkswagen polo comfortline diesel is better when compaired with ford Figo, in terms of spares and riding convenience. But the VW polo comfortline diesel should be provided with sound system in built considering the price tag. But in both cases attraction should be given in terms of introductory offers like corporate discount, early bird booking offers, exchange offers etc.,by the respective dealers concerned.Also the production time should be reduced in both cases and quick supply should be started by Ford as well VW companies.

  • yogesh |22 Mar,2010 04:14:53 PM

    ford figo diesel is best car in this price range.i have my 1.4 durtorq ikon and get good milage(20), comfort,well controll ride,good accelration etc, in my view 1.4 duratorq engin is better than maruti DDIS engin

  • Veer Bharti Koul |22 Mar,2010 07:18:26 PM

    seems impressive it all boils down to its adaptibility to Indian conditions and its overall maintainance cost.

  • diwakar |23 Mar,2010 02:33:08 PM

    Ford figo is much better then volkswagen polo in appearance, comfort, performance, fuel economy and value for money

    rajesh yadav |14 Aug,2011 05:25:15 PM

    Yes I agree

    Bharat Bansal |27 Mar,2012 05:29:59 PM

  • RAman |01 Sep,2010 10:49:27 AM

    Ford Figo is best for one reason; If the car brakes down at least service is available, Polo dealers are horrible in service.

  • raj |13 Sep,2010 03:16:46 AM

    i hav ford ikon flair (petrol) jst over 20000km (5yrs)...i m sick of its maintenance...once my car goes for service its costs around 10k evrytime.. don't go for any car of ford cz its spares are too much expensive..

  • vinod |30 Sep,2010 07:37:29 AM

    Ford figo is built to last car,parts now manufactured in india at chennai local and imt manesar,gurgaon.features are maximumin figo.... costs 70k less than other so think of it because 70k is saving which you can spend in future services or pay this 70k in advance to other cars. For indian roads ford is best quality for figo engine is duratorque already used by ford fiesta a premium sedan of indian road conditions. Earlier ford parts were exported so was the cost and waiting but today the investment in local manufacturing parts have made costs less than maruti So to see is to believe rest test drive the figo..... you will be the best judge... 5.3L ABS&EBD,KENWOOD STEREO,DEFOGGER,REAR WIPER,LOW SPARE COSTS

  • N singh |08 Oct,2010 02:03:48 PM

    Hi Guys, I guess it's a continuous boiling room experience for all of us fanatics!! My conclusion is that our roads have tested the best and knows which brands can work here. Globally indian market is very lucerative in terms of hatchback so every company who sell premium cars all over the world now suddenly wants to have their share of the pie! w/o realising that our needs are more practical and less cosmetic. suzuki, hyundai and tata have done well but they still have thier r&d working on better products. on the other hand, many companies are just struggling to find a space in this market. . . . so go with the best!! by the way i have always trusted maruti suzuki for one purpose, good value for money!! chow, tc.

    Anubhav |04 Jan,2012 01:45:31 PM

    Maruti's time seems to be over now as more and more new options are getting available for the customers. Take a look at Chevrolet, or Hyundai.. I myself have a Ford Figo (and its going so far so good).. In metropolitan cities there is not much hype left for Maruti.. it is the best deal what the people are getting and comfort they get out of the car.. No one of us is really a 'Schumaker' and needs to race or participate in rally.. the B segment which we know it has now lots of options and the companies are catering to different segments/class of people whether rural or urban.. In my opinion.. Maruti has reached a saturation point as their main USP (which is small cars) is getting very tough competition.. All the cars are equal when we talk about B-Segment but you can have difference in opinion when you wanna discuss the C or higher segments..

  • jaspreet |24 Oct,2010 07:58:20 PM

    Hi all when I went into the engine specifications of ford figo diesel , I found that it contains 8 valves in 4 cylinders i.e 2 valves(1 inlet and 1 exhaust valve) per each cylinder as compared to any other diesel engine which has 4 valves(2 inlet and 2 outlet valves) per cylinder and in total 16 valves. Take any other diesel car in this segiment like swift,punto,polo or any other, and you will find the difference . Can any body highlight on this point, as this very point is becoming a hindrance for me to buy this car. Otherwise all other features are good. Comment please

  • dr afroz |28 Nov,2010 10:18:41 PM

    I AM PLANNING TO BUY DIESEL VERSION OF FORD FOGO. THOSE WHO HAVE THE SAME CAR FOR MORE THAN 5 MONTHS NOW, MAY KINDLY SHARE THIER EXPERIENCE AND GUIDE ME ON MILEAGE AND ITS DURABILITY. THANK U

    jessay |17 Feb,2011 06:40:35 PM

    figo petrol has more pickup than a diesel.if u do a perfect shift figo petrol can have mileage around 18 - 20kmpl

    tom |22 Feb,2011 10:49:06 PM

    you wont get 20 even if you r the best driver in the world. you will definitely get about 17-18 without the ac on,if you use the clutch less and shift at the correct engine rpm. but many people are that good at driving and they constantly use the ac so many of them get 10-12 km/litre, only few people who know how to drive properly get higher mileage.

  • anil |04 Dec,2010 06:06:15 PM

    IO am planning to buy Ford Figo Exi.can anybody suggest me, is it a good buy?

    jessay |17 Feb,2011 06:30:20 PM

    titanium is the best

  • CarDekho Team |06 Dec,2010 04:35:03 PM

    The Ford Figo is a very well built and VFM car in its segment, a refined 1.2 Duratec engine which is powerful and efficient as well, its got best in class boot space and loads of cabin space. Ford has also increased its dealer network and reduced the prices on the Figo spares. Thanks, CarDekho Team

    i am planning to buy a car in the very near future, maybe before the budget 2011 march session. I currently own a Cheverolet spark but planning to either go for an i10 / Figo / Punto...! ANy suggestions. I am a little skeptical about buying a diesel car due to maintainence issues in future. someone pls clear my doubts :(

    CarDekho Team |24 Feb,2011 03:22:47 PM

    Dear User, As per your query you can go for Hyundai i10 is best out the choices as the car is fuel efficient,maintenance cost is low,has good resale value and strong dealership & service network. Ford Figo is a value for money car.It is loaded with features and has great power & pickup.It was entitled as 'Car Of The Year'. Punto is a good car.It has more features as compared to i10 and Figo but the only set back of the car is its high maintenance & spare parts cost. For further assistance you can leave us your contact number at contact@cardekho.com and one our auto-expert will provide you the best offers and deals. Thanks.

    i am totally confused in the case of figo, some one told it is better one, an the others are not, especially for spare parts, can any body clear my confusion?

  • Yash |11 May,2011 04:31:29 PM

    Hi, I am on the edge of buying a car and only thing stopping me at the moment is which one to buy. I am bit confused between figo titanium, Fabia Classic and Polo trendline (petrol for all three). All three have an advantage, figo for ABS at around 4.5L, fabia because great interiors and polo for best looks and brand. Kindly help me out of dilemma as all these three also have got thier drawbacks, which is making it even more compliaceted to take a decision. Like figo for lack of power, fabia and polo are way more expensive if you want all features that you get in figo. And how imporatant is the ABS, or say helpful, as this is the major reason the is making me think more about figo. else my clear choice would be fabia, let me know if I am heading in right way. Is fabia worth better than figo or should I go for polo or stick to figo.

  • Jigar |11 Dec,2011 02:04:56 PM

    Hi guys, somehow we neglect indian car makers! you will get maximum value for money if you go for vista quadrajet diesel using same celebrated engine of fiat with good city driving condition. You almost dont need to change gears, even in 5th gear, you can lift car from 20km/h speed, you get mileage of 18 in city and 22 on highway if you dont drive above 100kmph. Just have a look at the whole lot of features Tata is providing in its quadrajet model. I dont think any car even ford figo can compete with all the features of vista quadrajet. Quadrajet is really very refined engine from fiat used in vista. cheers!!

  • anil |03 Jan,2012 09:00:34 PM

    nice car

  • Vivek |22 Mar,2012 11:14:44 PM

    hey .. for all those who think ford spares are costly.. here is one news for u ppl... ford has adopted new strategy to reduce cost of spares..In its effort to reduce ownership costs, Ford has adopted the child parts approach. To give you an example of the child parts approach, if the solenoid of your starter fails, you do NOT need to change the entire starter assembly. Rather, Ford will sell you only the solenoid assembly (which will, of course, cost only a fraction of that for the entire starter). also its well evident that ford has increased the number of dealerships in many indian cities.. go u can surely opt for ford to enjoy best driving and world class technology... cheers !!

  • varma |28 Mar,2012 05:07:42 PM

    hi...FRIENDS...EVERY ONE IS START DISCUSSING ABUT THE MILLEAGE..ENGINE..VALUES...COMFORT...BLA..BLA...BUT DOES ANY ONE COMPARED ABUT THE SAFTEY..INDIAN ROADS...ARE NOT MEANT TO DRIVE WITH BASIC FEATURES OF ANY CAR.WHEN YOU COMPARE THE SAME BRAND IN ABROAD..THE PRICE WILL BE HIGH..& THE SALES WILL NOT BE THAT MUCH...BUT WITH WITH SAME BRAND..IF THEY HAVE COME OUT WITH BASIC FEATURES EXCLUDING THE SAFTEY..PART..THE PRICE FOR MANUAFCTURING WILL BE VARY NEAR ABUT 10-15%(20%) IS TRUE..BELIEVE IT OR NOT...AND YOU KNOW ONE THING IN ABROAD WITH OUT THE STANDARD SAFTEY FEATURES LIKE AIR BAGS (PARTICULAR) ANY BRAND CAR WILL NOT BE RELEASED INTO MARKET..!!! AND HERE..EVERYONE IS CONCENTARTING ABUT THE MILAGE..& MUSIC SYSTEMS..MY SINCERE REQUEUST TO ALL THE OWNERS & PEOPLE GOING TO BUY THE CARS...PLEASE..PLEASE..PLEASE..BUY A CAR WITH MINIUM SAFTEY..FEATURES..THAT TOO AIR BAGS AS MANDATORY........HOW MUCH IT COST SPENTING LAKS ON BUYING ONE CAR ,,CAN'T YOU AFORD A FEW THOUSANDS....... DO REMEMBER ONE..YOU ARE BUYING CAR..NOT A BIKE ..SOTHAT ALONE CAN DRIVE..YOU ARE BUYING THE CAR..AND YOUR CARING YOUR FAMILY & TRAVELLING ALONG WITH THEM..IF SOME THING GOES WRONG..THEN..SO ALWAYS GO FOR THE SAFTEY FEATURES FIRST..COMMING TO THE FIGO WITH SAME PRICE TAG..MINIMUM SAFTEY FEATURES LIKE AIR BAGS ARE COMMING WHEN COMPARED TO POLO WITH A HIGHER PRICE..AND ON LONG MAINTENANCE FIGO BODY IS NOT THAT MUCH QUALITY STANDARDS MAINTAINED..RUSTING AT THE JOINTS & WELD PARTS..POOR EXTERIOR PLASTIC..AND SO ON...!

  • K.NATARAJAN |17 Jun,2012 10:20:02 PM

    is volks wagen polo a good car?

  • Akshay |26 Jun,2013 04:28:19 PM

    You cannot actually compare polo and figo....i hav both....polo is definitely a class apart...much better build quality....it definitely is pricy...but worth it....figo is a very good vehicle too...VFM is the best factor about Figo...but please go 4 diesel...petrol Figo is not very efficient...
