PrideRed: Any chance you had a look at the 2 new colors, Blue and Yellow.
There were only 3 new Figo's present. Blue and Yellow were not present.
The headlight switches are still same as old one's. Given the blue dash/blue seat fabric i think back lit illumination in dash/console is going to be blue as well.Its red in old figo.

The Figo face lift doesn't look all that bad, you just need to get used to the looks.

True! But they could have used this opportunity better. Personally I like the understated matured looks of the old fella. The blackened head lamps had its own charm.

Btw... what do you think this stalk could be? for MID? And where are the steering mounted audio controls?

The steering mounted audio controls are not true steering mounts.They are present close headlamp stalks behind steering wheel. The stalk marked by you are the actual audio controls. These are pretty similar to one you see in Duster.

Ah! Just too many things to do with the left hand. Change gears, indicate, flash, switch tracks, control AC etc. Not many will find it convenient to use.

On the duster its on the RHS I guess!

If i can take my eyes to reach that position in between the steering wheel, why should i not just focus on the bigger switches on the music system!!!

ICB speculates Figo Facelift to launch on 15th of October, 2012.

Quote:
Ford India has just sent out invites for an event on the 15th of October, 2012, just before the Indian festive season kicks in with full vigour. While Ford is keeping mum about what exactly it will showcase on the 15th, we’re hinging on the facelifted Figo hatchback. The facelifted version of the Figo has already begun arriving into Ford dealerships across India, which means that it will only be a matter of time before the American car maker unleashes a brand new variant of its best selling product in the Indian car market. The other announcement of course could be something related to the EcoSport crossover.......

The logic behind not taking one's eyes off, while operating the headlamp and wiper stalks could have been the convincing factor for Ford I suppose! But this positioning is definitely less useful than a 'steering mounted' audio control though. I just hope it doesn't rub against the knees of very tall drivers

The Figo facelift will be launched on 16th of October.
SOURCE


Call it coincidence, but the new Maruti Alto 800 (which is already having an image of sharing the same face with the figo) is also launching on the same date.

OT: Looks like all car manufacturers are trying to capitalize as much as possible from the sacred days of 'navratra' since 16th October also marks the starting of the nine days which are considered sacred among potential car buyers.

Some more snaps.

Price list has arrived at dealers, but they are not willing to reveal. However, there is a high possibility of a slight increase in prices.

This is anyway expected. I am guessing that the price increase will be in the range of 10-30k. Let us wait for few more days.

The brochure of the face-lifted Figo is out & Auto-gadget have posted the same on their website (which they have referred to as lifted from Quarter Mile magazine). Link to the article:

http://autogadget46.blogspot.in/2012...etails_13.html

As per the brochure there are 6 changes in the updated Figo, viz-
- new head lamps;
- new steering mounted audio controls;
- new tail lamps;
- new alloy wheels;
- new front bumpers; &
- new seat fabric design.

Thanks for the pics Shuvc!

Looks like the new headlamps can be fitted in the old Figo too

If the new Figo headlamps have improved throw, then I am going to get it changed as soon as its available!
