Ford had launched the facelifted version of its Aspire compact sedan in October 2018. Since then, speculations are rife that the company will soon launch the updated version of its Figo hatchback. The car has been in development stage since quite a time and has been recently caught testing. The spyshots reveal a Figo in white paint shade and comes with many visual changes and tweaks. The facelift will also enable Ford to present a better alternative to customers who want something else than the regular Maruti and Hyundai cars.
The spy images you see above tells about the host of changes made on the car. The updated Figo will come with a chrome dotted grille, similar to the one seen on the updated Aspire. The bumper will also make way for a new redesigned unit with black inserts as on the Aspire. The test mule featured in the spyshot comes fitted with a set of revised headlamps along with new front fog lamps. Another striking feature are those black alloy wheels, which certainly will take up the look factor of the car.
Among the test cars in the spyshots, one of the car featured had decals on the sides and tail gate with a ‘Blu’ label. This could probably translate into Ford developing a CNG variant for the car. This is quite possible now since there is a rise in the demand of CNG vehicles of late. The rear bumper is also changed and features black inserts across it. The overall dimension and shape of the car will however remain the same. Refreshed styling and design will help Ford attract more buyers towards the car.
Talking of the interiors, the spyshots don’t reveal any detail as the car were spied during night. However, the Figo facelift will come with new updated interiors. The car will get a new dashboard along with a new centre console similar to the one found on the new Aspire and Freestyle cars by the company. A new touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Car Play and android Auto compatibility could also mar its present in the new car, although it will be limited to only top models. The updated Aspire came with twin airbags, ABS+EBD, power steering and air conditioning as standard across the whole range.
Talking of the engine, the Ford Figo facelift could be equipped with a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder Dragon Series petrol engine. This engine produces 95 Bhp of power along with 120 Nm of torque in the Aspire compact sedan. The motor will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The possibility of a CNG variant could not be denied too. Upon launching, the car will take up the fight to rivals like the Maruti Suzuki Swift and Hyundai i10 Grand.
