We were the first to predict this and voila! Here it is. Yup the much anticipated Ford Figo Concept has been revealed and firstly doesn't it look gorgeous? This compact sedan has been revealed in concept form and will be launched in the near future. The styling cues are based on the new Ford Ka/Figo concept, the hatch that is and the boot has been neatly integrated in. The engines would be the EcoBoost and the diesel.
The compact sedan space has been expanding with Tata Motors launching the Zest compact sedan today and then with this it seems the likes of the Honda Amaze and Maruti Dzire should be worried. Ford has not revealed the interior or any figures but only revealed the styling and being Ford we expect the production version to come next year as was the case with the Ford EcoSport.
When launched next year it will be replacing the Ford Classic which just has had a big price-cut. Ford will launch this sedan first and then launch the hatch which will be replacing the Figo. The new Ford Figo hatch too will share the styling shown here. Back to this Figo Compact sedan Concept, it seems with those Aston-Martin like good looks this is yet another EcoSport like success waiting to happen.
“Consumers are more demanding than ever, wanting and expecting more from their cars, even if they are first time buyers,” said Ford India President Nigel Harris. “They expect and demand great fuel efficiency and low cost-of-ownership from the initial price throughout the life of the vehicle. The Ford Figo Concept offers all of this, and more, with sophistication, fresh design, world-class quality, a roomy interior, and innovative smart and safe technology.”
