With automakers gearing up for the festive season either by launching a new model or a rejuvenated version of their existing portfolio in the Indian auto market, Ford India has emerged as another such car maker expected to roll out an upgraded version of its highly popular subcompact hatchback, Ford Figo.

After its inception in the country in the year 2010, the sales of Ford Figo have remained encouragingly positive, mainly due to the competitive pricing structure. With intensifying rivalry mushrooming especially in the mass market hatchback segment, the American car maker is endeavouring to introduce its uber cool and trendy Figo in an all new avatar.

The new Ford Figo was captured without any disguise while undergoing testing sessions at Panvel road on the outskirts of Mumbai. Endowed with substantial tweaks on the exteriors and the interiors, the new Figo staunchly distinguishes itself from the currently available Figo.

A newly designed grille, new fog lamps, front headlamps and tail lights along with revamped brake lights and reverse lights highly enhance the visual appeal on the outer front of the new Ford Figo. Fabrication of new set of alloy wheels with shiny finishes adds to the charm of the exteriors. It is anticipated that exterior colour choices will also be made available on the newer version of the hatchback.

While the changes on the interiors have not yet come to light but speculations are on that Figo will feature a new audio system and keyless entry.

At present, the car maker is chalking out the pricing structure of the new Figo but the Ford enthusiasts can expect the prices to be highly competitive especially ahead of the festive season in the country.
