I recently took a test drive for Ford Figo Diesel and I was pleasantly surprised. I am not particularly a fan of Ford cars but this car was surely a delight to drive with its smooth gear shifts. The confusion arose when I took a test drive of the Maruti Ritz Diesel. The smoothness of engine, the pickup, comfort of switching gears etc were far better as compared. The cabin of Figo is a little low in height which may cause problem for tall people. The Ritz is a little more comfortable and spacious in comparison. At the same time the finish of the interiors of Figo gain a little more points in comparison. In terms of ground clearance, Figo seems to be a little lower than Ritz causing problems at the speed bumps and potholes. Figo has a ground clearance of 168mm and Ritz has a clearance of 170mm. Though by the look of it, it is just 2 mm but when 5 people sit in the car, it makes a hell lot of a difference. I am getting mixed reviews regarding the mileage as well. Some seem to be happy with it and agree with the company claims whereas others are complaining that with the AC on, the car requires a refill pretty soon. One can say that mileage can also vary depending on the way one handles and drives the car, but being a Maruti car it is far easier to believe the claims that the company makes even if not the users. Plus another major disadvantage with the Figo can be the after sale service and maintenance. Here no doubt, no one can beat Maruti. Tata maybe close but Maruti still over powers all.
