2015 Ford Figo hatchback and sedan carry the company’s second generation design philosophy, Kinetic 2.0, which is why the models have close resemblance with new Fiesta sedan. With the launch of the new duo, Ford India will have a new-age lineup, to beat their respective rivals when it comes to styling and road presence.
Upcoming Ford Figo hatchback will replace the current model and new compact sedan variant will phase out older Fiesta that is rebadged and sold as Classic.
The cars will be produced at Ford’s new plant in Sanand, Gujarat, which will be operational by April. Ford Figo compact sedan will be the first to launch, in July, while hatchback model will set foot in the market a little later, in September.
Powertrain options for 2015 Ford Figo duo are not confirmed yet. Word around suggests deployment of new 1.5 litre TDCI diesel engine rated at 75 bhp and 190 Nm, and 1.0 litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost petrol motor without a turbocharger, rated at 80 bhp and 105 Nm. There will be no automatic transmission in either model, just a 5-speed manual gearbox across all variants.
