Ford Figo Review

Car tested: 2012 New Ford Figo Facelift Titanium

Price OTR Mumbai: Rs. 5.99 lakhs (petrol), Rs. 7.27 lakhs (diesel)

The Ford Figo was launched in 2010, offering a lot of value to buyers. The aggressive pricing, good economy (diesel version) and Ford driving dynamics immediately won the Figo a slew of car of the year awards (including the MotorBeam COTY). The Figo has changed Ford’s India story, prompting the American automaker to take the Indian market more seriously, subsequently announcing a massive $2 billion investment. The new Ford Figo is a minor update to the vehicle, to keep things fresh as the competition gets intense in the hatchback segment. Ford claims the new Figo has close to 100 changes. We take the new Ford Figo for a spin at midnight to find out, what really is different.

Ford has made several changes to the Figo, including 10 new styling elements. The headlights are different than the old model with a larger reflective surface, resulting in much better illumination at night. The front bumper is new too and incorporates a new trapezoidal grille, while the fog lamps gets a new bezel treatment. The alloy wheels / wheel covers get a fresh design while the tail lights are now different with a new design. The dimensions of the Ford Figo remain the same and the minor exterior updates give the vehicle a refreshed appearance.

Ford has discontinued the squeeze color on the Figo and added two new colors – Kinetic Blue and Bright Yellow. These new colors give the Figo a very youthful appearance.

Step inside and you won’t notice many changes. The Figo’s dashboard layout has been unaltered but the interiors get new colors in line with making things fresh on the car. The coral color has been dropped and now you have the option (Titanium variant only) of choosing Riviera Blue on the instrument panel. The seats also get new fabric design while the head rests are now adjustable. The seats now offer better lumbar support than before but thigh support could be better. Ford has also added audio controls on the steering column. These don’t move along with the steering wheel and are not as convenient to use as audio controls mounted on the steering wheel. The audio system now gets USB connectivity. The use of double bulb weather strips on the doors has reduced NVH levels inside the cabin marginally.

The new Ford Figo uses the same set of engines as before. The 1.2-litre petrol motor produces 71 PS of power at 6250 RPM and 102 Nm at 4000 RPM. The more popular fuel of choice is diesel and the 1.4-litre DuraTorq engine is a gem. The 1399 cc oil burner belts out 69 PS of peak power at 4000 RPM and 160 Nm of peak torque at 2000 RPM. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Ford claims performance of the new Ford Figo is slightly better owing to improved engine calibration. The company states the pickup and pedal response has improved.

However the improvements to the performance of the Ford Figo is very minor. The vehicle does feel slightly peppier than before but not by much. The diesel Figo is splendid to drive and the engine has very little turbolag. The diesel motor responds quickly to throttle inputs, making the car very fun to drive both in the city and out on the highways. Even with just 69 PS of power on tap, the diesel-powered Figo doesn’t feel out of breath easily. The gearbox has improved too and the short throw shifts are smooth and precise.

The right blend of good ride quality and sharp handling has always been in the Ford DNA and the Figo is no different. There are no changes to the driving dynamics of the new Figo, which are identical to the old model. The Figo handles brilliantly, inspiring confidence in the driver to throw it around corners. Ride quality is very good and the Figo absorbs most of the bumps on the road with sheer confidence. The suspension does get a bit noisy on extremely bad roads but that is not much of a bother. Braking performance is good with adequate bite from the pedal.

The Ford Figo might have quite a few changes but the way the vehicle drives is almost identical to the old model, which is indeed a good thing. The Figo now gets refreshed exteriors and interiors along with addition of new features. The best part however is the price, which has been increased by Rs. 3000-6000/- only, keeping the value proposition of the Ford Figo firmly intact. The Ford Figo continues to be an extremely value for money alternative in the B-segment, offering buyers splendid dynamics, good space, low cost of ownership (thanks to use of child parts) and a frugal diesel engine.

Whats Cool

* Sheer value for money
* Cool new colors
* Excellent driving dynamics

Whats Not So Cool

* Steering column mounted audio controls don’t move
* Under thigh support could be better

    Do they have climate control now ?

    Also what are the changes from old in dash board and instrumental console ? There were talks that this one may have start / stop switch for ignition ?

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      No One, nope. There is no climate control or start/stop in the Figo. No changes to dashboard and instrument console, except slight change in colors.

  • No One

    Figo seems to be considerably constier than Chevrolet Beat D LT, compare to Beat D, how is its mileage figures in city and highways ?

    I am been reading in websites about Beat D returning healthy 16-18 figures in city with A/C, so compare to Beat, how is the mileage of this car ?

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      No One, I think it is unfair to compare the Ford Figo with the Chevrolet Beat. The Beat has a smaller engine (3-cylinder) and the Figo is so much more eager. Mileage figures of both cars are more or less the same even though the Beat lacks a cylinder.

    • No One

      How much does that effects in city and week end casual highway drives ?

      Which one is a better buy for mostly city use with mandatory week end highway runs?

      Mind you, the Beat D LT is almost a 1L cheaper compare to top end Figo I guess.

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      No One, Beat is cheaper but its a tad smaller too. Beat is good for city driving though for the highways, it lacks the stability and surefooted-ness of the Figo.

    • SHAM

      F.Figo’s petrol mileage is WORST IN CLASS & Its BOOT SPACE is BEST IN CLASS…… Now u can decide……..

  • Neeraj

    Which is the best car for city & highway driving, and also having good space at rare seat….Hyundai i20 or Ford Figo….?

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      If you are looking at highway driving, the Figo is better than the i20 in terms of stability and handling.

    • SHAM

      Compared to i20, ford figo is better since it is cheaper with almost same mileage & Boot space. But wen compared to i10, figo’s mileage is a bit low & rear boot space is very high.

  • Ankit verma

    @Faizal The on road pricing of cars would mean a lot to serius buyers.The way Motorbeam has responded to our requests means a lot. Hats off to motorbeam and Faisal for their great efforts in making this forum superb!

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Thanks Ankit for the kind words. I am glad you appreciate ;-)

  • http://motorbeam.com Sarik

    Hello faisal. which car is the best swift or the figo.?

    • SHAM

      when price is the main consideration, go for FIGO, nothing in figo lags behind swift. If cost is not main criteria, go for swift, its already proved one.

  • Rajeev

    No word about the mileage and after sales service of Ford India. I have heard that both are pathetic. Is it true?

    • Deb

      Being a figo owner since 1 year almost, I didnt felt any issue in terms of ASS from Ford India, They responded well, whenever I called / reached them

  • Rajeev

    I also read in some review that the car has some major design flaw in driver and front passenger seat locking system. It slips at times causing the seats to move and if that happens when the car is running it could lead to some major accident. Can you please tell about that?

  • abhiram

    does the figo finally get electric windows at the rear now at least?

  • Pradosh

    I am Figo Titanium (Petrol) owner for 6 months now
    All aspects stated by Faisal about driving dynamics and great ride are absolutely spot on. You get so used to the awesome grip, I always find myself at 100 kph on any decent (read non potholed) road
    I only wish there was a more powerful petrol engine on offer – this car feels it can easily do 30-40 kmph more on the top end

    In the city, I love the strong cooling from the AC. The bells and whistles on the Titanium is great – you can connect phones using bluetooth. If you have voice (turn-by-turn) navigation on your phone, it reads out directions through the speakers. My WP7 phone even reads out messages, and lets me dictate messages when connected via bluetooth

    The only thing I dislike is the paltry 11 kmpl you get in the city with AC on

  • m mahesh

    hello faisal,
    i hav been reading about figo for the last 3 months but still undecided to buy. we are a family of 5 and i read that ford figo underscrapes even on small bumps on roads when fully loaded. is it so? anything rectified in the new figo in the suspension part?

    pls advise.

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Mahesh, it scrapes if you are not careful and the speedbreaker is terrible. Other than that, the Ford Figo is a fabulous car in its segment.

    • SHAM

      Undoubtedly, Figo has BEST IN CLASS boot space. It well suits for a family of 5, but with an indescent mileage… If ur prime concern is Mileage, then dont go for figo, instead BEAT or I10 is a better choice, which comes with descent fuel efficiency but boot space lags in both compared to figo.

  • Soham

    Hi faisal, good review of ford figo. I just bought a figo titanium tdci 10 days back.. M happy wit the car but i feel the rear suspension a bit harsh. Will reducing tyre pressure by 2 psi help?

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Congratulations Soham on your new car. What mileage are you getting?

      Yes a reduction of 2 PSI should help a bit.

    • Soham

      I havent calculated the mileage yet. Just worried about the stiff ride .it was allright in the test car. Does anyone of you including faisal has encountered the same problem..? Can we tweak da suspension settings at the dealer

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Soham, no you can’t tweak the suspension. I did not find the ride too stiff.

  • Ganesh P

    Hi,

    Iam seriously looking to buy a car ASAP (within 6L)and I have done extensive research on this segment and settled down on Figo Titanium ( Im sure there are no car in this segments that matches Figos offerings). Im only concerned about Ford’s after service – came across lot of negative reviews from existing customers. Please let me kknow your thoughts on this. Also My another confusion is to go for Figo Diesel or Petrol ( I can extend a bit). My avarage use will be around 500 – 600 km/month. Your comments on this too wil be useful?

    Thanks in Advance !!!

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Ganesh, get the Figo diesel. Ford service has improved and now they are opening Quick Lane service outlets, which offer regular service in quicker time.

    • Gojen Singh

      i m not in favour of the ford company but Figo is extremely good to drive in every aspect.it can’t be compared with other premium hatchbacks available in India.I really love it.

    • SHAM

      If ur monthly running is less than 900 kms, then never go for a diesel version.Its purely waste of money, bcz experts suggest diesel car only if u run ur car for more than 900 kms on an average mothly.

      On more thing, never go for FORD machines, when ur concerned about mileage….. Instead go for maruti or hyundai or chevrolet

  • soham

    @Ganesh p, hi! figo is no doubt the best value for money and a competitve car…… after sales service and mantainence costs are now better then before. another car worth looking if you can do with the blandness of the car then etios liva can do wonders for you……!!!

  • http://www.preetinfoways.com Harpreet Singh

    I am going to buy Figo EXI Diesel …………. :)

  • amol

    Nice to see Ford make changes after listening to customers.

  • T.Srinivasa Rao

    Hi Dear Faisal.

    I have 2 options one is old version figo diesel and new version figo diesel. The dealer is offering around 20K discount of older version. Can I go for it or not? reply me urgent as there is only 1 car left at dealer.

    • Soham

      Go for the old figo i did the same no significant changes in new model. Ask him for more discount

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Srinivasa, get the new model as there are some minor changes which are worth the extra 20k.

    • Avinash

      Hi Faisal,

      I am about to make a decision. My dealer is offering me old figo, diesel variant, zxi, Delhi registration @ Rs.5,64,000.
      At the same price point(5,64000) he is offering me New ford figo,diesel, Exi, delhi registration. Additional things which he is giving in the same price point is Ford bluetooth music system which is factory fitted in the Zxi or titanium model.
      I am confused which model should i go for? old(zxi) or new(Exi).

      Plz suggest.Appreciate your quick revert.

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Javeid Khan

      Avinash, there is a marginal difference between the old and new Figo. The new (Exi) will be my pick. Why to take an outgoing model when you can get the newer one, dont look at a few thousand rupees here and there, you will definately recover it when you sell your car after a few years.

    • Avinash

      Thanks Javeid. You are coorect but as you said they are marginaly different and if i go for a old figo , i will get ZXi which is above EXi with more features.So i am slight confused.

  • Soham

    Did a 1500km trip in my figo . A great car and good experience.

  • Manjunath

    Hi Faisal,
    I am planning to buy a diesel car within 7L. I have 2 options in my mind.
    1. Indica Vista vx 2012
    2. Ford Figo zx 2012
    I liked both the cars except that figo is not offering ABS for this model but Vista has got the ABS option.
    I am confused with these two choice of mine. Which is a better car in terms of
    1. Handling and driving comfort
    2. Economy
    3.After sales service and maintenance cost
    4.Durability

    Is vista using the same 1.3l engine from Fiat that is being used by Ritz and Swift?
    Can you help me with the above details as this is my first car.

    Thanks
    Manjunath

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Manjunath, looking at your requirements, I would suggest you get the Ford Figo.

    • Manjunath

      Hi Faisal,
      Thanks for such a quick reply.
      Can you give me more details as the ORP for both the cars in Bangalore is less than 7L. Both suite my affordability. But only thing that bothers me is the i have limited knowledge about the details i had requested for in the previous post. I can make a better decision with full knowledge.
      Thanks
      Manjunath

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Manjunath, the Figo is superior to the Indica in terms of reliability, handling, durability and maintenance. Economy of both these cars are on par.

    • Manjunath

      Thanks Faisal.

    • SHAM

      Undoubtedly go for INDICA. Quite well proven & value for money in this segment wen comapred to figo

  • Rudi

    Hi Faisal,

    Just booked a Figo Diesel Zxi. I am not sure about its fuel economy. Ford/Dealers claim its about 18km/l in city and 22 on highways. Are these figures achievable with Figo?

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Rudi, nope, in real world conditions, expect 2 km/l less atleast.

  • Kishan

    Splendid review. Just need your input to help me buying a car. My options are VW Polo 1.2L Trendline or Figo EXI Diesel . My usage will be around 800 KM per month on the average . So bit confused between the two cars. I am a beginner and this will be my first car. Seeking your help on this

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Kishan, get the Polo if your budget permits. Have you read our Polo vs Figo shootout?

  • Navajoth Singh

    hi any one can tell me what is the different between old figo Zxi V/s new figo ZXi
    all are missing things but company say that they have upgrade the figo demotion

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Navajoth, not much upgrades. New features added but that is about it.

  • Navajoth Singh

    you did not go my point bro
    once you compare old & new figo features & specifications all

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Navajoth, have you read the above review?

  • rahul

    is there is any increase in ground clearence ?

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Rahul, nope.

  • Ashutosh Sharma

    I want to buy a car but i am in dilema between Ford Figo Titanium(diesel) and Hyundai i20 sportz(diesel).Please suggest me.

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Javeid Khan

      The Figo is a complete package but is a segment lower than the i20. The Figo will be a little lighter on your wallet you. Both cars are good but if your running involves the highway, the Figo is a better bet. The i20 however will come loaded with more gizmos.

  • Mitra

    hi, can anyone help in comparing new ford figo petrol zxi & chevrolet sail uva ?

  • Krishna Mohan

    Hi Faisal,
    On Dec 23rd I purchased Old Ford Figo ZXI Petrol Version at Hyderabad, AP.
    1. It is giving 10 km per liter, is mileage going to improve after my first service or tell me logic to check the Mileage.
    2. Because of Road Clearness is low, by mistake if I hit the speed breaker what will be the damage to the vehicle or how do I get to know if there any problem by hitting the speed breaker.

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Krishna, mileage should improve although petrol Figo is not known to be the most frugal vehicle. Avoid hitting speedbreakers, although hitting them rarely won’t be much of a problem.

  • Lakshman

    Hey Faisal

    I had bought a figo exi in jul 2012. I kind of feel that the doors are really light cause they have single beeding rubber. I heard it has been rectified(using double now) with the new flavour. Is this true ?

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Yes, they have rectified this issue in the Figo facelift.

  • Gojen Singh

    i m not in favour of the ford company but Figo is extremely good to drive in every aspect.it can’t be compared with other premium hatchbacks available in India.I really love it.

  • salvadore

    Hi Faisal,

    I am planning to buy ford figo 1.4 ZXI (yellow)… or do you have any other better options… let me know some of your inputs please…

  • Bhupesh

    I am planning to buy a diesel car confused between Maruti vdi and figo zxi diesel. Please suggest which one is better.

    Thanks

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Bhupesh, what are your requirements?

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Javeid Khan

      Bhupesh, the Figo gives you more value for money between the two. Mileage and cost of ownership is relatively the same with both. The Figo also offers more interior space, bigger boot and more features such as bluetooth connectivity etc. Take a test drive and decide which one suits you.

  • Neetiraj

    Hii, please suggest.

    I Am Confused between Ford Figo ZXi and RiTz VDI…….looking for good fuel Economy and after sales services, not so costly spare….
    Revert required urgently

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Javeid Khan

      The Figo ZXI offers more space and features with almost the same service costs. The Figo has brilliant driving dynamics too. The Figo should be your pick, however drive both before taking a final call.

    • Rajesh Thambala

      Hi, Neetiraj, Go for Ford Figo it is “The Best” when compared to Ritz D

  • Neetiraj

    Thanks you Javed for the ur prompt reply….Actually this will be my first car…will learn driving frm my car only ….so test drive is out of question….. my frnds told me that figo is a Low base vehicle and touches the Speedbreaker every now and then…. is it the case with Ritz also?….becoz roads in india are full of Speedbreakers….
    Please Suggest..

  • Inder

    Hi Faisal,
    Im planning to buy figo diesel zxi (or) Titanium. But confused, as its going to be my first car and im still at a learning stage. i have heard ABS and Air Bags do help in terms of safety. So do you think Titanium will be a wise choice ?

  • munish jha

    im planning to buy figo zxi d but i got some bad reports regarding its music system , as i always use pendrive in car, and reports tell figo music sysytem not read maximum pendrives in available in india.is it true, oe wat, if true then wat to do

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Munish, yes its true. Its not just the Figo, its an issue with almost all Ford cars.

      Why USBs when you can bluetooth?

  • Sudhakar

    Hi Faisal,

    I am planning to buy a new car. My budget will be 7 L. Please suggest me on below queries.

    1) which will be better among swift diesel or figo diesel.
    2) if in case ford, is it worth to go for titanium or ZXI or EXI will worth?
    3) what will be mileage?
    4) maintenance cost ?..

    Thanks in advance.
    Sudhakar

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Sudhakar, if you are ready to wait and budget permits, get the Swift diesel. The Figo ZXi variant is good, mileage is around 16 km/l and maintenance is reasonable, less than Swift.

    • Sudhakar

      Thanks Faisal..

      I heard rear leg space is more in figo compare to swift, is that right? . Also what is current waiting period for Swift Diesel.

      What are pros and cons of Ford figo when compare to swift?

      Thanks,
      Sudhakar

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Yes Sudhakar, Figo has more rear legroom but Swift has more comfortable seats. What are you looking for in your vehicle?

  • Sudhakar

    i just got quotation from Lathangi ford bangalore. The Figo titanium ORP is 7.4 Lacs. is it worth or can i have look for swift ( VDi version will come around 7.60 Lac i think so).

    Please suggest

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Sudhakar, Figo will be fully loaded while Swift VDi lacks equipment. Get the Figo.

  • Ashish Tripathi

    @Faisal: I recently drove the new ford figo.. I must say the driving experience was really good. I have almost drove all cars in this segment, the biggest disappoint is the steering feel. Since Figo has hydraulic power steering the control over steering is good. My 3 question to u.

    1. What would be the condition of the car after 1 year compare to polo & swift, for an example let say after 20,000 km?

    2. The engine noise is too loud in the cabin, accept to raise the volume of audio, is there any way to control it? I found it too loud when you press the paddle.

    3. Does your opinion will change for figo if the buyer is looking to own this car for 5 years in terms of maintenance, cabin noise and spare cost… Does figo has reliability for long term ownership?

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Javeid Khan

      Ashish, after one year, the Figo should be as new as would be a Swift after one year. It off course depends on your driving conditions and wear and tear. We have done a long term review with the Figo and i personally dont think you should have any issues with the car. Yes, there is some cabin noise but that’s about it. Mechanically everything is pretty sounds. You can read our long term review here – http://www.motorbeam.com/cars/ford-figo/ford-figo-tdci-long-term-review/

      Thanks for your reply.

  • himanshu

    hi faizal,
    i am planning to buy a car with a range around 5L. After lot of research i settled down on ritz lxi or figo exi.(petrol versions)
    but not able to decide which one to finalize. i liked ford figo test drive but i am concerned about the mileage and maintenance of the car. the sales people say that the avg is around 12 in city and the service is just 3- 4 k per KM run but not sure not much is true as per sales team.
    On other hand Ritz also i felt is a good car , have better engine configuration than figo , its mileage as said is around 13-14 in city and for them also the annual service charge is 4- 5 K per 10K run.
    i test drive of both i felt that at high speed , ford is more stable than ritz.
    I would really appreciate it you can help me out in deciding which is better out of both.

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Javeid Khan

      Himanshu, if you have decided to go for petrol, then the Ritz is definitely the better car as the K series engine delivers both on performance and mileage front. The Figo petrol feels underpowered and does not deliver good mileage too. In case you were considering diesel, the Figo is the better package.

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Get the Ritz as the Figo’s petrol engine is not so good in terms of mileage.

  • Bhaskar Sinha

    Hi,
    I am planning to buy Figo diesel titanium but I am not getting clear picture regarding 0-100 kmph in secs. somebody told me its 20.5 sec, few websites displaying 16.2 sec. & some 15.9. I just want to know the correct one. I have checked the Ford figo website, its not displaying any information regarding pickup.

    Thanking you

  • Ashutosh

    Hi Faisal,

    I am terribly confused between ford figo diesel, swift diesel & honda amaze diesel.

    Is it really worth to spend extra 50k-1 lac rupee on buying swift, amaze over ford figo.

    Although i am on a tight budget & want to go with Ford figo diesel, i’ve below concerns with it:

    – More than 4 years outdated engine that produces v. less power of 68 bhp
    – V less mileage (14 kmpl) compared to compered to the competitors

      Figo is good but all new model coming next year. My recommendation is the Amaze.

      Thanks for your reply.
      I understand that amaze diesel is much better than figo diesel. But amaze SMT is 8 lacs whereas figo zxi is just 6.5 lacs,
      I am really finding it difficult to spend an additional 1.5 lacs when i can get good performance from figo for city & highway driving. (Looks is not a concern for me but cant compromise on ride quality & decent performance with less maintainence)
      Is there another better diesel car less than 7 lacs (except swift) ?
      Also my monthly running is between 1000-1500 kms only. Shall i go with petrol or diesel ? If petrol, which is the best petrol car under 6 lacs (except grand i10) ?

    Please help me decide as i’ve to book by this weekend. I’m still strongly inclined towards figo due to its VFM factor. It is costing me 5.93 lacs only after discounts.

    I bought new FOrd Figo diesel EXI and filled around 12 liters of diesel and the meter in the CAR shows 6.1 Km per liter Avg. I am confused

      Don’t go by the meter, use tank to tank method to test mileage.
