The New Small Car in India
The Ford Figo has been manufactured by Ford India specially for Indian market to compete with small car industries. Indian market was ruled by the monopoly small car Maruti 800 for decades which gave a key idea and understanding to other automobile manufacturers in India. Later TATA Indica came into existence which has not only boomed TATA’s car sales but even Indian population liked the car very much having all the basic qualities of a executive car to a extent that the small car could accommodate.
Then emerged a lot of small cars aiming at Indian roads and India’s automobile market. Now the recent addition to it is Ford Figo. This car has a large hatchback that is based on the outgoing European Fiesta platform. Ford has worked hard to make the Figo extremely price competitive and in doing so, they have managed to place it rather strategically in the large hatchback segment. Design and style are typical Ford, with enough borrowed from both the Fiesta and the Fusion. Available with either a petrol or diesel engine, the Figo is the first hatchback from Ford India and its entry will always mark the company’s entry into the most competitive segment in the Indian market.
Diesel & Petrol Car
There is another advantage for Ford Figo to be a successful new comer in a country where mileage is given with importance in car markets and in two-wheeler industry too for this case. This car comes with both petrol and diesel engines. In long-drive the diesel engine Figo car is said to give approximately 20 to 22 km/liter. Petrol engine Figo is said to give approximately 16 to 19 KM/liter which is not bad for both diesel and petrol engines.
