Do you love Ford Figo? If yes, then chances are you will love this story. This story is about the new 2018 Ford Figo facelift which has been spotted testing in India. We even have a photo of it. In the photo, there is little revealed about what the car will look like. What we can say is that it might have a similar grille design as the current car. The car also seems to be wearing body cladding, which you can make out by looking at the lower part of the front bumper. The Figo facelift will probably launch alongside the 2018 Aspire facelift and Figo Cross.
The Figo has not been doing much for Ford India. In the month of July 2017, the Endeavour, which is the flagship product of Ford India, outsold the hatchback. The Endeavour sold 1,030 units in comparison to Figo’s 931 units. Yes, there are other factors such as GST involved in this. However, the Aspire sedan has continually been selling more than the Figo. So, perhaps the time is right to give this hatchback a facelift and a much-needed shot in the arm.

The first of these engines is a 1.2-litre petrol motor which will likely be a three-cylinder unit instead of the four-cylinder one on the current car. This engine’s power and torque outputs are not known yet. We think it will likely have a 5-speed manual gearbox paired with it.
The second engine will likely be a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine and does duties on the current car. It will likely be carried forward in the same state of tune too. This means you can expect it to have peak power output of 110BHP and peak torque output of 136Nm. This engine will likely come with a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox too.
The last engine is a diesel engine that will likely displace 1.5 litres and will be a four-cylinder turbocharged unit. Expect this engine to have a peak power output of 99BHP and peak torque output of 215Nm. This engine will likely come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
