New 2015 Ford Figo launch today
The second generation Ford Figo has been launched in India. The new Ford Figo retains the strengths of the outgoing model (Read: Frugality, Robustness and Affordability), along with showcasing Ford’s Kinetic design language and boasting of an updated list of features. Figo has been instrumental in turning the fortunes of Ford in India and many other emerging markets. And in all probability, the upcoming model would carry forward the legacy.

Until now, Ford has been following a one model strategy wherein they concentrate majorly on one car from their line-up. It started with the Ikon and continued on with the Fiesta, Figo and now the Ecosport. However, with the advent of the new Ford Figo the company has another shot at switching to a more balanced strategy and concentrating on selling all the models in its stable. Having said that, they will have to definitely concentrate more on the new cars i.e Figo Aspire and Figo, but Ecosport is still a very popular car and losing out on that could be catastrophic especially with new competition from Maruti and Hyundai right around the corner.
The New Ford Figo could turn out to be the game changer for the company as the car has all the makings of a winner. Good looks combined with a feature-rich package and Ford’s usual sorted out driving dynamics could help them reenter the top of the sales charts easily. Beating the Maruti Swift is a tall order no doubt, but the Figo has enough to take on Hyundai Grand i10 and even the Elite i20. Let’s see if the new Ford Figo India can emulate the success of the outgoing Ford Figo and more importantly if it can sustain that popularity in the long run.
