Ford Figo Concept global compact car unveil in India: LIVE coverage

Ford India will present a new global concept today, in New Delhi. Top management officials from the headquarters of Detroit based car-maker, media from all over the globe, are all here for the big event, just like they were during the unveiling of EcoSport concept, right before the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo.

This new global concept from Ford is expected to be a compact sedan, which will be under 4 meters in length. It is built on the next gen Ford Figo platform, B562. This new platform, is much more stronger, and lighter as compared to that of the current Figo platform.
