Pros : Driving Comfort, Steering Control, Looks, Audio System, Interior

Cons : Engine noise, Ground clearance, Non-availability of rear power windows


Look and Style: Interior is splendid, especially with the RED LED (not orange) displays. Exterior is to be decided by onlookers. Comfort: Driving Comfort is good. Rear view mirrors are perfectly placed. Seating is a bit congested with 5 people but perfect for 4. Due to lack of headrest in the backseats, long journey can become a bit tiresome for taller people. Suspension is fine and adequate. Pickup: If you know the right way of acceleration, this car shall not dissapoint you. But honestly, it comes with a consequence, the mileage drops with higher RPM shifts. The 2nd gear is the worst part. It is very difficult to crossover speed breakers in the 2nd gear and you shall require a shift. At 150kmph the engine is extremely noisy but the car doesnt vibrate. Mileage: (After 1st Service with AC) Average - In city 12-13kmpl / In highway 15-16 kmpl. Always believed mileage depends on the person who is driving it. If you look for high pick up (higher rpm) than mileage drops to appx 11kmpl. However with better caution driving and gear shift mileage can be very efficient upto 13-14kmpl. Best Features: You cannot ask for more in a hatchback segment of Rs. 5-6L. Excellent cargo volume; leg space best in class; interior is very good; headlights displacement and dispersion - OK. Audio system is perfect (unless you prefer high volume or bass). Needs to improve: The engine noise is horrific if you are driving without AC. Well goes without saying that diesel engines are always a bit noisy. Ground clearence is very bad. Acceleration / pick up lacks a bit especially if you prefer the same.  Overall Experience: The car is best in its class. Absolutely value for money. If you are looking for a family / personal car with minimum mainatainace, long drives, style and above all with solid budget, this car is a perfect buy.

    I want to buy Figo Diesel Titanium version. Shall Is the Diesel Figo a best option? I heard ground clearance became good from Jan 2011. Can anyone clarify me please?

    Ford Figo has already achieved its own milestone, by being awarded numerous Car of the Year awards. It is definately a best buy in that particular segment. It perfectly blends the mixture of comfort, mileage, maintainance and space. As for the ground clearance, I am unaware of the same. A Ford dealer would certainly explain you more properly. I purchased my Figo on April '11 and haven't been acknowledged with any changes from previous models
