In the coming years Ford will roll out more cars in India including new products and facelift versions of its existing models. Among the new models, we could see launch of Figo sedan, concept version of which was shown at the 2014 Auto Expo earlier this year. From the company’s current portfolio, Endeavour premium SUV is likely to be put forward in a new avatar. According to latest reports, new Figo sedan could be launched in India by either early 2015 or mid 2015 and new generation Endeavour could see light of the day by 2015 end.

The Figo sedan concept is said to be replacing the ageing Classic sedan in the entry level sedan segment in the domestic market. Sales of Endeavour have been fading and the new version is expected to put in some life in the feeble product.

A few days ago, Ford Brazil revealed images of production version Ka+ sedan that is said to be an alter ego of Figo sedan. The sedan looked similar to the concept version of Figo sedan shown at the 12th edition of Auto Expo. The production version of Figo sedan had the similar head lights and tail lamps as seen in the concept version. Front grille has been inspired from the one equipped in Fiesta, inside the cabin, the sedan shares similarities with EcoSport and Fiesta. Unlike the Brazil spec Ka+ sedan, Figo sedan will be a sub-four meter sedan and hence will get the benefit of low excise duty levied on cars less than four meters. This would also allow the car maker to price the sedan competitively.
