The new Ford Figo is all set to be launched later today and you can watch all the action live here. Details of the hatchback have already emerged online so, pricing is the only unknown factor.
Ford India has carried forward the Figo Aspire’s promising package to the hatchback variant as well. Save for the all-black color theme on the inside (the Aspire employs dual-tone black-beige treatment), a new exterior color option and the absence of boot, there is hardly any difference between the two.
Power comes from a set of one diesel and two petrol engines. The base 1.2-litre Ti-VCT petrol generates 88 PS and 112 Nm of torque while the range-topping 1.5-litre Ti-VCT petrol motor produces 112 PS and 136 NM of torque. The former makes do with a 5-speed MT while the latter offers a 6-speed PowerShift dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The 1.5-litre TDCI diesel is mated to a 5-MT to deliver 100 PS and 215 Nm of torque.
