A drive around a Mumbai is always a special one thanks to the never sleeping cities eclectic and cosmopolitan nature and not to mention a host of amazing sights and when you have a convoy of Ford Figo’s stirring up the night, it gets even more special. Now the Figo has always been a special car since its inception in 2010 in more ways than one. For one it was our Car of the Year back in 2010 and not without a reason. With more than 2.35 lakh Figo’s on the road it has gained global acceptance and how. The new Figo then, while aiming to keep all its award winning virtues intact has just made what was good even better.       



Figo gets a fresher face and then some…

Two years is a long time and in the wake of some very stiff competition, the Figo needed a facelift pronto. At first glance it is very difficult to absorb the changes. With Ford calling it the enhanced Kinetic Design, the new Figo now features a new look front fascia with a hexagonal grille and redesigned headlamps. And its not just the looks, the headlamps now have a larger reflective surface which has improved visibility.

The fog lights also get bezels in them making them more effective against the dark. Moving on to the side you will notices the 14 inch alloy wheels which add a lot more character to the car. The tail lamps haven’t been left out and get minor updates as well. There are two new colours as well, Bright Yellow and Kinetic Blue, the former as you see in our picture which looks especially good. While the changes are not as substantial, the minor exterior changes have definitely added a year or two to the car before the all new Figo arrives.
