Ford is set to launch the BS6 Figo in the coming days and ahead of that, we have the spy shots which show what changes will come on it.
Ford has started updating its models with BS6 engines, the first one being EcoSport. Dealerships have already started accepting bookings for BS6 Ford Figo, Freestyle, Aspire and Endeavour, with their launch scheduled for this month.
In case of BS6 Ford Figo, the updated hatch will get two noticeable changes. As seen in the spy shots, it now gets new 15-inch alloy wheels on the top-spec Titanium variant. The same alloy wheels will also come on the Aspire top-spec trims.
Inside the cabin, there’s no sign of SYNC3 infotainment system. The spotted test mule is Titanium Diesel variant, which now gets a capacitive touchscreen. Probably, only the Blu variant will come with a touchscreen from now.
In the case of engines, BS6 Ford Figo will continue with its same 1.2 Litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine. The three-cylinder petrol engine produces 95 BHP and 120 Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine churns out 99 BHP and 215 Nm of peak torque.
Recently, Ford also discontinued the automatic variants from Figo and Aspire. The automatic variants were offered with a bigger 1.5 Litre four-cylinder petrol engine. Mostly, the Figo BS6 will also come only with a 5-speed MT as standard.
The prices of current Figo starts off at Rs 5.23 Lakhs up to Rs 7.65 Lakhs(ex-showroom Delhi). With BS6 incoming, we are expecting the prices to increase by Rs 5,000 – 10,000 for petrol variants and up to Rs 30,000 for diesel variants.
Ford Figo is one of the most underrated hatchbacks in its segment. It competes with the likes of Maruti Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, Mahindra KUV 100, Maruti Ignis and Tata Tiago. Amongst all, Figo is the one is the most outdated styling but also the most powerful.
