Nissan Micra looks more round around the corners and overall and gives a cute appearance. On the other hand, Ford Figo has a sharp styling and more triangular and pointed design language. Both looks pleasing in appearance. Micra looks charming with its retro like charm while Figo looks more futuristic with sharp features.

Figo is taller and wider than Micra so gives more space in width and has slightly lower seating position compared to Micra. The Micra on the other hand is a tall boy with higher seating height and more headroom.

The engine of Figo is slightly more powerful and punchy, but mileage is where Micra takes on Figo. Nissan Micra claims to have 23 KMPL mileage per litre of Diesel which is best in class. So it’s a trade off, if you want more power, you have to compromise with mileage and vice-e-versa.
