It’s pretty well-known that Ford India has been busy readying an updated Figo for its market launch. The Ford Figo facelift, which could be only a couple of months away from its launch, will offer a host of styling updates and new features. Also, as per the images we have here, it looks like the company also plans to launch a CNG variant of its updated hatchback. It’s for the first time that the CNG version of the Figo facelift has been spotted testing in India.
Going by the images we have here, the Ford Figo CNG is based on the updated Figo that will launch later this year. The only tell-tale sign of this being the CNG variant is a sticker on the rear windscreen. The Figo facelift is likely to be sold with the same 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, Dragon series petrol motor that powers the Freestyle. Of course, the CNG version of this engine is likely to offer a slightly lower power output. The motor will come mated to a five-speed manual transmission. For the Freestyle, this engine outputs 95 bhp and 120 Nm. Other than the 1.2-litre petrol and CNG variants, the Ford Figo facelift will also offer the tried-and-tested 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged TDCi motor. This motor outputs 98.6 bhp and 215 Nm.
As we said, the upcoming Ford Figo facelift will come with a host of styling updates. The front-end will come with a sportier grille and a new bumper. The rear-end will also get a new bumper. The Figo is also expected to offer new design alloy wheels. On the inside, the car will offer a new upholstery and an updated dashboard design. The new dashboard will carry the company’s SYNC3 infotainment unit, which will replace the dated SYNC system on the current model. The new infotainment system will offer a touchscreen interface along with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The car is also likely to get some other additional features. The updated Ford Figo is likely to launch around the onset of this year’s festive season. Moreover, going by the prices of the Freestyle, the upcoming Figo facelift is likely to cost much less than the existing version.
