March 27, 2019: A new version of Ford Figo is available across Ford dealerships in Nepal. The starting price of the car is Rs 2.49 million.
According to the distributor of Ford, the comprehensively redesigned model with more than 1,200 new parts features even more stylish exterior and interior, an array of safety technologies and a new engine promising more power and fun while driving.
The new Figo will be available in four variants and two fuel options.
The new Figo comes with fuel-efficient three-cylinder 1.2L TiVCT petrol engine, being introduced for the first time. The engine generates best-in-class 96 PS of peak power and 120 Nm of torque, according to a statement issued by the company.
For the diesel lovers, the new version will come with the trusted 1.5L TDCi engine delivering class-leading 100 PS peak power, 215 Nm of torque and fuel economy of 25.5 KM/L.
Both engines in the new Figo will be paired with a sportier five-speed manual transmission that’s almost 15 percent lighter and helps improve fuel economy while reducing NVH. It also requires 40 percent lesser gear oil than its predecessor, the statement said.
According to the company, the new Ford Figo offers a host of innovations to keep its owners informed, entertained and safe at all times. The most loved and popular hatchback will continue Ford’s leadership on safety, offering standard dual airbags across the variant line-up.
Going beyond the airbags, the 2019 edition of Figo will enhance occupants’ safety with Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), thus helping drivers with better grip and a smooth drive. The new Figo will also enable its owners to navigate through quick turns with the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) in the automatic variant.
To keep the customers entertained and informed, the new Figo will come equipped with a 7- inch homegrown infotainment system with touchscreen and built-in navigation.
The new Figo will be available in seven colors, including white gold, moondust silver, smoke grey, absolute black, deep impact blue, ruby red and oxford white.
