Ford Figo Automatic Launched - With Automatic Headlamps
Ford Figo Automatic Launched at Rs 7.75 Lakh - Check Variant Prices & Specification Details
The Figo is back with an automatic now and this time the automatic variant is given with the 1.2l petrol engine. The automatic gearbox in question is a 6-speed torque converter automatic while the prices are Rs 7.75 Lakh for Titanium & INR 8.20 Lakh for Titanium+. Compared to the old Figo automatic, the new one gets the AT with the 96PS/119Nm 1.2l petrol. The gearbox will also get Sport Mode and SelectShift features on the six-speed automatic transmission. The Sport mode will give you a sportier driving experience while the SelectShift feature is about letting you shift gears manually.
With the top-end Titanium and Titanium+ trims on offer you get features like Rain-sensing wipers, electrochromic IRVM, 7inch capacitive touch screen infotainment system, FordPass connected app along with side and curtain airbags, standard dual front airbags, traction control system, electronic stability control, rear parking camera, rain sensing wipers and hill launch assist. However it misses out on a SYNC feature.
Ford also claims lower maintenance cost at INR 1,313 for scheduled service in the first year while the 100,000-KM or 10-year service is surprisingly affordable at just INR 4,097. The Figo automatic competes with the Hyundai i10 Nios AMT, Maruti Swift AMT, amongst others.
However one key difference that Ford points out is that unlike the other automatic hatchbacks, the Figo automatic is a torque converter automatic and not an AMT gearbox like its rivals. That is an advantage for the Figo with smoother shifts and having an affordable price-tag with six airbags and a fairly long equipment list too. The other manual variants on the Figo will remain while this automatic would be an addition.
