Ford has launched the Figo facelift with mild cosmetic tweaks, feature updates and new engines compared to the outgoing model. Here’s how it stacks up against the pre-facelift model that was first launched four years ago:

Design

The most notable cosmetic difference on the new Figo is at the front, thanks to the updated front bumper, revised headlights and new mesh grille.

In profile, the new Figo is nearly identical to the outgoing model save for the new alloy wheels. The top-spec Titanium Blu variant gets 15-inch all-black alloy wheels, while the lower Titanium variant gets 14-inch units.

When viewed from the rear, it is slightly difficult to distinguish the new Figo from outgoing model except for the revised rear bumper design. The top-spec Titanium Blu variant is more distinct, thanks to the decals.

Interiors & Features

The 2019 Figo facelift gets a revised layout for the dashboard with the new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system at the centre. It is also why the new layout looks a lot cleaner with fewer buttons than before although the shape of the area dedicated for air vents remains the same.

The aircon controls underneath, along with central console tunnel are also unchanged.

New all-black upholstery with blue stitching on the Titanium Blu variant lends some sportiness to the interiors of the 2019 Figo. It also has blue accents along the door handles and blue needles for the instrument cluster dials.

Engine & Transmission

The new Figo gets a new set of three-cylinder petrol engines under the bonnet. Its 1.2-litre unit produces 96PS and 120Nm, mated to a 5-speed manual.

The new petrol-automatic uses a 1.5-litre engine mated to a 6-speed torque convertor and produces 123PS and 150Nm. The outgoing model’s less powerful 1.5-litre unit was paired to a 6-speed DCT.

Ford continues to offer the new Figo with the same 1.5-litre diesel engine as the outgoing model that still produces the same output of 100PS and 215Nm.

Features

The new Figo is offered in fewer variants, but each one is better equipped now. In the new base-spec Ambiente variant, you now get rear parking sensors and a day-night IRVM which wasn’t offered on the pre-facelift model.

In terms of safety, the Figo now comes with dual front airbags and ABS with EBD as standard. It is still the only car in its segment to come with six airbags in the top-spec variant. The petrol-automatic variant also gets tech such as electronic stability assist, traction control system and hill launch assist.

The new top-spec Titanium Blu variant also gets rain sensing wipers, automatic headlamps and a leather steering. These features were not available on the top-spec Titanium+ variant of the outgoing model.

Ford has also equipped the 2019 Figo with adjustable rear headrests, rear parking sensors with camera, push-button start, day/night IRVM and passenger seat seatbelt reminder in the Titanium and Titanium Blu variants. None of these features were previously available with the Figo hatchback.

Launch & Prices

The 2019 Figo facelift has been launched at a starting price of Rs 5.15 lakh with the top-spec petrol-automatic variant priced at Rs 8.09 lakh (ex-showroom India).

Here’s the full price list of the new and pre-facelift Ford Figo:
