Ford Figo vs Other Automatic Hatches: Specifications Compared


The Figo AT is equipped with a 6-speed torque converter. But is that enough for you to pick it over the Maruti Suzuki Swift AMT and Hyundai Grand i10 Nios AMT?

ZW-Ford-Figo-Spec-Comparo

Ford has revived the Figo’s automatic variants here in the country. It is the only car in its segment to come with an out-and-out automatic transmission. This, of course, gives it a distinct advantage over its AMT rivals.

But is that enough for you to pick it over the Maruti Suzuki Swift and Hyundai Grand i10 Nios? That’s precisely what we will talk about in this detailed on-paper specification comparison.

The Figo’s 1.2-litre petrol engine develops class-leading numbers compared to its rivals. It’s also the only model with a proper 6-speed torque converter automatic; the Swift and Grand i10 Nios use an AMT (automated manual transmission). 

However, the downside is that the Figo is the least fuel-efficient of the lot. With a claimed fuel economy of 16kmpl, the gap between the Ford and the Maruti is a whopping 7.76kmpl, which is significant.

Common features across the three hatches include a touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, multi-info display, and keyless entry with push-button start. 

  • The Figo comes with auto wipers and auto-dimming IRVM, but it doesn’t get Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

  • The Swift is the only model here to feature cruise control. 

  • The Grand i10 Nios misses out on auto headlamps and wipers. However, it packs a wireless phone charger.

All three come with dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, and a parking camera. The Swift and Figo’s automatic variants also feature electronic stability control. 

However, it’s the Ford that goes the whole hog, featuring traction control and side and curtain airbags. The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios neither gets electronic stability control nor traction control. 

Price And Verdict

ZW-Ford-Figo

At this price point, the Figo does make for a great buy as it packs a more refined automatic transmission. Sure, it misses out on certain feel-good features like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and cruise control. But look past these, and the Figo with its segment-leading power figures and impressive safety kit undoubtedly makes a strong case for itself.
