Pros

The exteriors of the new Figo is refurbished with Ford’s signature kinetic design, cat eyed head lamps, wide stance, stylish rear lamps, chromed grille, engraved body lines and the strong built gives it an athletic look. The handling lineaments, low maintenance and the drivability of the car are excellent. The Interiors of the car appeals with the classy and opulent design and the clutter free dashboard consists of music system with Bluetooth, tachometer, odometer, low fuel warning and many more. It also has day and night inside rear view mirror, glove boxes, cargo area lamps, coat hooks, cup holders providing enough convenience to the passengers. The car is well engineered with safety measures including features like EBD, ABS, central locking, three point seatbelts, engine immobilizer and fog lamps.

Cons

The Ford Figo has its own limitations, the claimed mileage of 16kmpl in petrol and 20kmpl in diesel does not satisfy the mileage prone customers. If we talk about its engine it can be termed as average one and rumbles at high speed. The Interiors are though eye soothing but are cramped; the rear seats are not very comfortable although the driver’s comfort ability is not ignored. The suspension of the car is a bit hard and low ground clearance makes it more uncomfortable for the rear passengers during off road drives. The visibility is not very clear due to the dull headlamps and compact rear windscreen making it difficult for the driver and the air bags are available only in the top models which does not meet the safety standards of the new cars.

Verdict

Overall it’s a value for money car with its affordable price and good lineaments. The invigorating exteriors is quite appealing and enticing and has comes as a good package for budgeted buyers. Even the base model inherits good features which makes it beseemed for the Indian buyers. The compendious car is perfect for city use.
