Ford has launched the 2019 Ford Figo Facelift with over 1200 changes to the original model. Which means, almost 50% of the car is now all new. The Ford Figo Facelift will soon be coming to Nepal as well. Currently, the price for the Ford Figo Facelift is unknown, but here's a look at the New 2019 Figo Facelift.
While the silhouette remains the same, the Figo does get a few styling updates! There are decals all over, adding a touch of sportiness to the exterior. This is of course on the top spec Blu variant. The front and rear bumpers get a re-design and new grille does look cool with the cellular design, but we would have liked if the car got LED daytime running lamps. Overall, there is a sense of freshness to the new Figo which is indeed likable.
The cabin gets a redesign as well, sporting new all-black interior with blue accents on the doors and dials along with blue contrast stitching on the seats. Again, this is offered only on the top-spec Blu variant of the Figo Facelift. The cabin is definitely a step up from the outgoing model.
The 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system is intuitive and has in-built navigation along with a reversing camera as well. Both Titanium and Titanium Blu variants get the same creature comforts while the base Ambiente variant is of course bare-bones. However, the new Figo does miss out on smartphone connectivity completely, which in our opinion is a big miss!
Ford will be offering a 1.5-litre diesel along with a 1.5-litre petrol engine for the new Figo. What is new is the 1.2-litre Dragon petrol engine which makes 95 bhp at 6,500 rpm and 120 Nm of peak torque at 4,250 rpm. All variants of the Figo get a 5-speed manual but the 1.5 litre petrol variant gets a 6-speed torque convertor automatic gearbox.
The 1.2 petrol has a claimed fuel efficiency of 20.4 kilometres per litre while the 1.5 diesel can run for 25.5 kilometres on a single litre of diesel. The 1.5 petrol, with the automatic gearbox has a fuel efficiency of 16.3 kilometres per litre. Of course, we will get you the real world figures once we carry out a proper comparison review of the Figo with its peers.
