The second generation Ford Figo was launched in 2015. The American manufacturer had revamped the chassis and the engine completely. However, the Figo was lagging behind in the crossover game. So we are happy to report that recent spy shots which surfaced online have confirmed that this adventure variant is, indeed, in the works. The upcoming crossover, Figo Cross, is likely to be dubbed as the Figo-Trail. This car was showcased as the Ford Ka-Trail in the 2016 Sao Paulo International Auto Show.

Upfront, the spotted car boasts of an additional skid plate with a redesigned air dam. The side profile displays the body cladding, which runs from the front wheel arch to the rear and doubles up as the side skirt and a rocker panel. The rear bumper seems to have received minor tweaks and gets some meaty body cladding as well. The cabin is expected to receive a few tweaks and a few additional features as a part of its midlife update.

Rumour has it that the new crossover will be powered by a new 1.5-litre three cylinder petrol engine. However it is uncertain whether the manufacturer will offer a choice of either a six-speed DCT or a five-speed manual gearbox. The new crossover vehicle is also expected to be offered with a diesel motor. However, it is expected to be paired to a five-speed manual gearbox only.

The Ford Figo Trail is expected to be unveiled at the Delhi Auto Expo in early 2018. After its launch, the Figo Trail will compete against the Volkswagen Cross Polo, Toyota Etios Cross and the Fiat Urban Cross and the Hyundai i20 Active.
