The prices and features look promising. If true, it'll a good addtion to the B-segment. But, can I get an all black dash instead of that horrible red colour?

Hope the ABS and EBD is an options for the other variants rather than being part of the top of the line trim.

Also Tacho only on the ZXi and above trim might leave the instrument cluster on the lower two variants uninspiring!

What is the date of launch any idea guys? The feature list looks promising. OTR Prices have to be lower than the Polo if they need to put a dent in the market. Punto is not much of a threat. i20 is though, even if expensive.

Scoop master at work!

Is the coral red same as the Paprika red or like the Furnace red in Fiat?

As far as I am concerned, they got everything right woth the car, except the red dashboard. How can somebody possibly come up with such an outrageous idea?

I was hoping for Climate Control on the top end Titanium spec.
The Europeans need to meet or beat the Asians to really bring in the sales numbers.

Great Scoop Sid ... features looks promising, quite disappointed that the lower versions don't have tacho as standard.

Still the actual pricing is still a great mystery

Actually, most cars have this. This is basically that on wiper speed 1, you can change the speed of the wiper between 5-30 secs (generally around this much).

@Sid: Nice scoop. Looks like Ford has left room for SXi and S models. Hope they are launched soon as well.

I guess Figos have already reached showrooms.

I saw one Figo parked at Harpreet Ford (Gurgaon).

I had given my car for repair at adjoining Ring Road Honda and in the process I saw that car was there whole day. (inside Harpreet Ford's boundary wall, outside its building).

I can tell you one thing : If the Figo diesel is priced well, it will go on to become one of the best buys in the segment. The car's as good an all-rounder as they come. Excellent engine (zero turbolag + efficiency), decent space, large boot, super ride & handling and sturdy build. Ford have a big opportunity on their hands at the moment.

Because SXi will be the famous and hot selling "Limited Edition" which will be launched probably in a year's time by Ford
