Ford figo facelift (2019) price ,review.

ford figo

The new ford figo with 1200 updated parts is ready for the markets competition.And the craziest thing is that it has a new petrol engines.The
Titanium Blu variant, which gets a sportier-looking, all-black grille in what ford calls a ‘cellular’ design and C-shaped fog lamp housings with blue accents. The black roof and black 15-inch alloy wheels are a nice contrast to the body color and make it stand out in the crowd. There are very few changes at the rear; the ford figo facelift gets a redesigned bumper, and there’s no relativity fact that the Titanium Blu variant looks much like the previous Figo’s Sports Edition, which was launched in 2017. However, the small details to the design are doing there best to differentiate it from the previous car. It’s also worth noting that the lesser Titanium trim doesn’t get the contrast roof and sticks with 14-inch alloys and all those black and blue accents are chrome instead, just like on the Aspire sedan. The equipment list has also been updated, with the biggest addition being a 7.0-inch touchscreen.

Ford figo facelift is powered by the same engine as in the updated Aspire. The 96hp, 1.2-litre, three-cylinder ‘Dragon’ engine replaces the older 88hp, 1.2-litre, four-cylinder unit. The new engine not only has more power, but Ford also claims it is more efficient by 2.24kpl. The older 110 hp, 1.5-litre petrol with its dual-clutch automatic has been replaced by a new 123hp, 1.5-litre petrol and its 6-speed torque-converter automatic from the EcoSport. Ford’s much-loved 100hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine has been carried forward, but with a new 5-speed manual gearbox.

Petrol engine specs

The new 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine makes 96hp and 120Nm of torque and is mated with a new Getrag-sourced 5-speed manual gearbox, which was first seen in ford Freestyle. With a light clutch operation, getting off the line is a smooth affair, and the engine is refined too. The engine’s performance at low speeds is’nt that exciting. It is not that responsive below 2,500 rpm, and therefore you’ll find yourself working the gearbox more often. Luckily, the gearbox has short throws and is easy to slot. The power kicks in after the 2,500 mark and, here onward, the engine delivers strong and linear performance. There is good power even in the top end, all the way until the 6,800rpm redline. The engine does get noisy as you climb the rev range, but the engine note is nice and suits the hatchback’s sporty nature more than it does the Aspire sedan.

Diesel engine specs

  
The 100hp, 215Nm, 1.5 diesel has always impressed us with its performance and it did the same.The new 5-speed gearbox which is the same unit as in the petrol, but with different ratios. There is a small amount of turbo lag at low speeds, but it is very well masked. And once the turbo kicks in at 1,700 rpm, you get a strong surge of power which is sustained until 4,000rpm. Here, too, the gearbox works much better than the old IB5 unit, with lighter, smoother, more positive shifts that add to the driving pleasure. The taller gearing of the new transmission also makes this diesel version a good cruiser and allows it an ARAI-rated fuel efficiency of 25.5kpl. The clutch, although heavier than in the petrol car, is well weighted and has a consistent feel to it.

Comparison to earlier generation car


When compared to the tremendous first-gen car, the dynamics of the second-generation Figo felt a lot softer and more comfort-oriented. Things were quite different, however, with the 2017 Sports Edition, which handled much better than the regular Figo, thanks to the re-tuned, lower suspension, 15-inch wheels and a beefier anti-roll bar. This facelift gets the bigger wheels and anti-roll bar, and while the suspension has been re-tuned, it hasn’t been lowered. So yes, while the front stays planted in fast cornering, the car is not quite as sharp as the Sports Edition. What it is, instead, is a good halfway point between the sharpness of the Sports Edition and the comfort of the standard, pre-facelift car, which is more suited for everyday driving. The suspension handles bad roads with ease and is silent in operation with only sharp potholes being registered inside the cabin. However, over a patch of bad roads, there is a hint of bobbing which is evident. The steering stays light in the city and weights up nicely as you gain speed on the highways, and through all this, it still offers possibly the sharpest turn-in in the class. This remains the mid-range hatchback of choice if you enjoy driving .
