Ford Figo facelift caught undisguised, mixed reactions
Ford Figo facelift has been speculated for a long time. These speculations have now received confirmations with the release of pictures of a face-lifted Ford Figo which has been caught test- driven, all masked with tapes all over, in some pictures released on the internet. The images of the car being test-driven were caught on the roads of Panvel near Mumbai. The car seems to be almost ready but any confirmation regarding the same has not been reported from the company’s side.

The most prominently noticeable changes in the new Figo are the chrome inserts on the car’s grille. The front blinkers of the car have now been shifted downwards near the headlamps for a different look. The air dam was seen to be of a hexagonal shape in the spy pictures. The Fog lamp housings have been refreshed and altered. The Tail lamps have been reworked .Brake light and Reverse lights have been interchanged for a refreshed new look.
The greatest change in car can be said to be its new hexagonal air dam which conforms to Ford’s ‘Kinetic Design’ layout. Slightly re-profiled headlamps with side lights placed down, give the car a Classic look. The grille has been given a chrome touch with Ova badge placed in the centre.
Rear tail lamps in the new Figo seemed to be slightly re-worked with the lights being moved slightly upwards which will surely be helpful in better visibility at night. There is a chrome strip on the rear door which gives the car a premium taste.
The interiors might not have any major changes. There could be an addition of new audio system or keyless entry. There are high chances of new design alloy wheels and more and brighter colour options to choose from.
Prices of the reworked Figo are not yet known however, the company will have to take care of the pricing. The company will have to launch the hatchback with a more aggressive pricing to keep its sales momentum rising.
