Detailed Ford Figo Review

What's Good?

Good : Style, Features, Space, Ride and Handling, VFM Exterior The exterior looks are simply superb, the head lights and tail lights have been nicely placed and the kinetice design looks nice and it is very practical also. The aerodynamics are very nice. The flexible bumpers are good for the bumper to bumper drive in metros. Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) When you step into the car and take the driver seat it feels like you are sitting in a luxury sedan, the Coral finish in the Titanium is nice but the Black and silver finish looks more decent. As expected from Ford the fit and finish is brilliant. The steering wheel position is good and you may not complain about the lack of tilt and telescope feature. The seats are very comfortable and specially the shape of front seats give a luxury look. The instrument panel lights up decent and the distance to empty feature is very useful. The features like sudden decelaration warning and automatic volume adjustment for music system and blutooth connectivity are very nice and practical features. The remote central loking in the key itself is good to offer as it is mostly seen in the luxury sedans.The AC is very effective and will be good for the India's summers. The rear leg room is good and even a 6 ft person at the rear seat will not complain in long drives. The boot space is huge and will be enough for over the weekend packed trip for the entire family. Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox As expected from ford the engine is peppy and does not lack power. It offers good torque in low speeds. The gear box is precise and with good gear ratios for city-highway driving however could have been more smooth. Ride Quality & Handling I have driven it at max. 90km/hr and handling was very precised and steering was very accurate and correctly weighted. The ride comfort may be best in class as suspension hardly allows the jurks and bumps to the cabin. Open the dicky & you will be surprised to see the luggage space it offers, really good.

What can improve?

Area of improvement : No alloy wheels and rear power windows on Titanium Model Interior : Rear window doesn't come down fully therefore no power-window provided for the same but then its ok since nowadays everybody is driving with AC on. Exterior: when you open the bonnet you will be surprised to see the heavy use of plastic material & its really worrying in the long run because there is absolutely no protection to engine in case of unfortunate frontal collision even with two wheelers. Sales person promptly replied its due to cost cutting measures but I personally felt its very risky. Engine Performance: Engine performance: Petrol Engine is a big let down, very under-power. If you are sitting in 4-5 persons with AC on then you will really curse the engine, absolutely below par performance.
