The Ford Figo has won ‘Car of the Year’ award from most reputed publications.
The key ingredients contributing to a perfect car are performance, fuel efficiency, practicality, space and a healthy list of gizmos. The final flavor comes with the right pricing and Ford seems to have got the recipe absolutely right with the Figo. This car alone had changed the game for Ford in India and has won the car of the year award from almost all the reputed publications, including MotorBeam. We have extensively reviewed the Ford Figo in the past (link to review) and this is, by far, the most practical and value for money vehicle in the segment. With soaring petrol prices, diesel cars make more sense as the differential between the two fuels keep getting wider and wider. We take the Ford Figo diesel for a long run and find out how it fares as a daily drive.
Externally the Figo may not appear to boast of a catchy design but this is one practical car and that’s where it scores over its rivals. It provides just about everything a hatchback owner needs. Electrically adjusted mirrors are convenient and you don’t have to go through the hassle of adjusting the mirrors every morning. Cabin space is the largest in the segment. Even though the Ford Figo is not the tallest of the cars, a six footer can be comfortable in both, front and back seats. The boot is handy when you want to travel heavy and can swallow large bags with ease. Rear defogger and wiper are appreciated during the rains. Safety has not been compromised too, there is ABS and Airbags on offer for the safety conscious.
