Ford’s yet to be launched Figo facelift scores 3-stars for adult safety and 4-stars for child safety.
The facelifted Ford Figo, known as KA in the international market, scored 3 stars for adult occupancy and 4 stars for child occupancy in the latest rounds of Latin NCAP crash test.
The Ford Figo was put against the frontal impact and side impact test. In the frontal impact, the driver’s head resulted adequate protection as the driver’s head bottomed out the airbag, while the passenger protection is good. The driver and passenger knees showed a marginal protection as they were in contact with dangerous structures behind the dashboard. The overall body shell got its result as stable but the space for the foot resulted as unstable.
The side impact result was good for the head of the occupants but the chest protection is rated as weak, as the rear door opened during the side impact. The side pole impact was not performed as the Figo does not offer side head protection airbags as standard.
The British-spec Figo comes with dual airbags, ABS and seat belt pretensioner only on the driver side. The facelifted Ford Figo will be launch in India soon but for now on October 4 Ford is launching the Aspire facelift. The Aspire will share the same equipment as seen on the currently running Freestyle, which is based on the Figo.
