2018 Ford Figo
The 2002 Fiesta was the original version of the first-generation Figo. Basically the company completed the 2002 Fiesta with many changes and then changed their name for its show in India in 2009. It was released back in 2015 with the same name and the new 2018 Figo will not be another Fiesta because it is a completely new car. It uses the same platform as Fiesta but it has smaller design to provide potential buyers who are seeking for the cheap alternative.
2018 Ford Figo Exterior
You may think that it is a new car but some updates are expected on 2018 Ford Figo. It will go with some updates to deal with the current problems and issues. It is designed to deal with its rivals and it will be a cheap alternative for those who need a base model of Fiesta. We have to say that the current design is great in its class. Although it is smaller than the Fiesta, but it has some unique proportions added. The front-end is from the Fushion with large headlights and Focus-inspired rear end will be left untouched.
2018 Ford Figo Interior
There will be no radical changes to provide for the cabin of this new generation. But, the company will have big concern on the cabin design. It is because most inexpensive cars have cheap cabin design and not well-equipped. Therefore, they want to make something innovative by providing the fresh and latest technology cabin design in 2018 Ford Figo. It has modern design and some improvements are added. You can use MyFord Dock as their main highlight to allow the driver using smart-phone just like an infotainment system for the car. The top model will not carry over the basic 2DIN audio system with touch-screen unit to make it better. The great upgrade likely will be based on the Sync2 or 3. Some standard features are available such as AC system and electric windows.
2018 Ford Figo Engine
Under the hood, there are three engine options and there is no much change around it. It will use 1.2 liter naturally aspirated inline-four engine for the base model to provide about 88hp and 112 Nm of torque. For the Titanium, the company will install 1.5 liter inline-four to produce 112 hp and 136 Nm of torque power. It works with six-speed dual clutch gearbox. There is also 1.5 liter diesel paired to five-speed manual to create the same 100 hp and 215 Nm of torque. The latter engine works for those who want to get more powerful performance than the Fiesta by riding the new 2018 Ford Figo.
2018 Ford Figo Release Date and Price
It was presented to India and few other countries with the starting price less than $6,800 and it can be closer to $10,000. It is a cheaper model compared to the Fiesta. Although the release date is still unknown, we expect to see the new 2018 Ford Figo by the late of 2017. If you want to go with the diesel, it can be less than $1,500 to spend and it is a great option for those who love the fuel consumption efficiency.
