I always wanted to buy a Ford car. They are always a great vehicle in ride and handling, safety, stylish exterior aninnovative interior. I was very desperate to buy the First generation Figo. But I ended up with Maruti Suzuki Vdi Diesel as my first car. No Big complaints though except the fact that it has no airbags. I used it for more than 125000 kms under 4 and half years, thought its time for a change.
Looked at Grand i10, Nissan Micra, i20 Elite,Swift Diesel and when Ford launched the second Generation Figo, took a test drive and took the decision to go for it and got a 1.5L Diesel Titanium plus oxford white colour delivered on 2nd November 2015 as a gift for my First wedding anniversary.
I have used 1500 km until now. It is a pleasure to drive this vehicle around city in a Bumper to Bumper traffic (don't have to shift gears often). With Sync technology, once me and my phone gets inside then everything is hands free,you don't have to take your eyes of the road for making/recieving a call. It is very confident on highways even at speeds excess of 150 kmph as it unleashes the power of 100 PS and 215 Nm torque without any lag which can be seen explicit in my earlier vehicle.
Overall with a combination of easy manouverability in city and highly responsive in Highways of course with excellent mileage (17-18 kmpl for Bumper to Bumper traffic and 22-23 kmpl for highway driving), with technologies that doesn't let your eyes of the road while doing other tasks and most important safety with 6 Airbags. It is a great value for Money. I would recommend new car buyers to go for Ford Figo. Please do not get dragged by benefits given by other car manufacturers. Give priority to safety and safe driving.
Exterior Great looking car, escpecially the front Fascia with Astom Martin like Grill, Strong built and rear styling also looks good. It would have been better if Ford would have given 15 inch alloy wheel and HID lamps for Titanium plus version. It will look great for this vehicle. I am planning to get it from after market.
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Interior feels great for the money, very spacious, and lot of storage options. Air-conditioning/cliamte control is best in class which lagged in my previous vehicle. Cabin is very quiet thanks to the good noise insulation. You will not be able to hear engine noise until 100 kmph with the climate control and Audio ON on highways. Audio system is very clear with controls available on steering wheel, you can change tracks, radio stations without taking eyes of the road. Boot space is pretty decent and rear seats are very comfortable.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox One of the best Engine in this segment and powerful and very much responsive without big compromise on Fuel economy ;dont feel like driving a diesel car. Gearbox is very much smooth, don't need to shift gears often in bumper to bumper traffic.
Ride Quality & Handling Excellent ride and handling. Suspension takes on the potholes very smoothly, With the increased ground clearance than the first generation Figo and higher than my first car. I am able to take off-roads and drive on water logged roads with great confidence.
Final Words Overall with a combination of easy manouverability in city and highly responsive in Highways of course with excellent mileage (17-18 kmpl for Bumper to Bumper traffic and 22-23 kmpl for highway driving), with technologies that doesn't let your eyes of the road while doing other tasks and most important safety with 6 Airbags. It is a great value for Money
