Ford Figo Facelift vs Competition

Ford has launched the new Figo facelift at prices ranging from Rs 5.15 lakh to Rs 8.05 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Apart from the cosmetic changes inside out, the 2019 Figo now gets two new petrol engines, new manual transmission and some new equipment too. Here’s how it compares to its main rivals in the segment - the Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Hyundai Grand i10 - on paper.

Dimensions

  2019 Ford Figo Hyundai Grand i10 Maruti Suzuki Swift
Length 3941mm 3765mm 3840mm
Width 1704mm 1660mm 1735mm
Height 1525mm 1520mm 1530mm
Wheelbase 2490mm 2425mm 2450mm
Tyre Size 175/65 R14

195/55 R15
165/65 R14 165/80 R14

185/65 R15

The Ford Figo remains the largest car in its segment, in every aspect except width and height. The Swift is larger than the Grand i10, the latter of which really suffers because of its narrower dimension. Interior space should be the best in the Figo in this comparison, though it seems like Ford has not tackled the ergonomic issues of the pre-facelift car like the front passenger seat rubbing against the centre console and the lack of storage space on the rear door pads.

Petrol Engine

The Ford Figo gets two new petrol engines with the facelift. The first one is the same ‘Dragon’ series 3-cylinder naturally aspirated motor which debuted on the Freestyle and also powers the Aspire. Also new is the Getrac-sourced 5-speed manual transmission.

Petrol MT 2019 Ford Figo Hyundai Grand i10 Maruti Suzuki Swift
Displacement 1.2-litre 1.2-litre 1.2-litre
Cylinders 3 4 4
Power 96PS @ 6500rpm 83PS @ 6000rpm 83PS @ 6000rpm
Torque 120Nm @ 4250rpm 114Nm @ 4000rpm 113Nm @ 4200rpm
Transmission 5-speed MT 5-speed MT 5-speed MT
Mileage 20.4kmpl (claimed) 18kmpl (claimed) 22kmpl (claimed)

The Figo’s petrol motor is the most powerful and the torquiest here, though it may not set the performance charts on fire as it is under the hood of a larger car. It is good to see that the higher performance numbers have not affected the efficiency as much, as the Figo petrol MT has a respectable claimed mileage figure of 20.4kmpl.

Petrol AT 2019 Ford Figo Hyundai Grand i10 Maruti Suzuki Swift
Displacement 1.5-litre 1.2-litre 1.2-litre
Cylinders 4 4 4
Power 123PS @ 6500rpm 83PS @ 6000rpm 83PS @ 6000rpm
Torque 150Nm @ 4500rpm 114Nm @ 4000rpm 113Nm @ 4200rpm
Transmission 6-speed AT 4-speed AT 5-speed AMT
Mileage 16.3kmpl (claimed) 16kmpl (claimed) 22kmpl (claimed)

The Ford is the only car here to be offered with two different petrol engines in its lineup. The Figo petrol AT borrows the 1.5-litre motor developing the most power and torque here. Paired to a 6-speed torque converter, instead of a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission like the pre-facelift car, this engine is expected to return better real-world efficiency too.

Diesel Engine

The Ford Figo facelift makes do with the same 1.5-litre, turbo-diesel engine as its predecessor.

Diesel MT 2019 Ford Figo Hyundai Grand i10 Maruti Suzuki Swift
Displacement 1.5-litre 1.2-litre 1.3-litre
Cylinders 4 3 4
Power 100PS @ 3750rpm 75PS @ 4000rpm 75PS @ 4000rpm
Torque 215Nm @ 1750-3000rpm 190Nm @ 1750-2250rpm 190Nm @ 2000rpm

22.19kmpl (tested highway)
19.74kmpl (tested city)

27.38kmpl (tested highway)

Like the petrol variants, the Figo diesel is the most powerful and torquiest car in the segment. The Ford Figo diesel should be more fun to drive now, thanks to the new Getrac-sourced 5-speed manual transmission. Its claimed mileage should be achievable in the real world too.

22.21kmpl (tested highway)

The Maruti Suzuki Swift has the advantage of being the only car in the class to offer a diesel-AT variant. While it may seem like Ford has missed a trick by not offering an automatic variant with its brilliant diesel engine, it makes sense when you consider the fact that the popularity of diesel cars is expected to nosedive very soon anyway.

Safety

2019 Ford Figo vs Competition

The Hyundai Grand i10’s age shows in this comparison. While it offers dual front airbags, ABS and EBD as standard, like the other cars, it misses out on rear parking sensors being offered as standard fitment. The Swift gets ISOFIX child seat anchor points at the rear as standard too. On top of these features, the Figo, in its top-of-the-line Titanium ‘Blu’ variant, also gets the segment unique six airbags and emergency assist function. In its automatic-equipped variant, the Figo is the only car in this lot to get electronic stability program (ESP), traction control system (TCS) and hill launch assist (HLA).

Infotainment

The Figo is now on par with the segment, thanks to a touchscreen infotainment system, a large 7.0-inch unit at that too. But it also proves that size doesn’t matter because unlike the Swift and the Grand i10, the Figo misses out on Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

Features

2019 Ford Figo vs Competition

The Ford Figo no longer lags behind the competition in terms of equipment on offer. It gets a start/stop push-button, electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs, automatic climate control system and automatic headlamps. Where the Swift has an advantage over its rivals is the fact that it offers LED projector headlamps.
