New gen Ford Figo was first launched in India back in 2015. But due to low sales, and launch of Freestyle, the car was discontinued from the Indian market last year. Now, loaded with more features, and updated styling, the Figo nameplate is back in India with 2019 model year update.
2019 Figo Facelift is being offered in three variants of Ambient, Titanium and Titanium BLU with the latter receiving a sportier stance with a contrasting roof line, chrome finished honeycomb grille and new 15” alloy wheels. Exterior updates across the range are similar to those seen on the Aspire facelift, which was launched last year in India. Ford claims that there are 1,200 changes (yes, twelve hundred) on board the Figo facelift.
