The best thing about the Figo is that it was made specially for our country, Just like the Fiesta and Ikon.

That is a very good point and if we think about it, the market has given Ford the thumbs-up with each of those products(esp. once they started taking care of spare parts price concerns).

Kudos to Ford for bringing this car to india and winning the hearts of Indians & bagging T-BHP ICOTY.

Having said that, I find it Kind of Disturbing for a car which is originally "Eruopean Fiesta" being labelled as "Made in India" or "Designed for India".

By this yardstick all foreign manufacturers Like VW, Honda, Toyota, Chevrolet all have few cars especially designed for India.

The only true Made for India Cars are Tatas, Maruti and Mahindras...... Rest all cars are global deisgned products suited for Indian Environment.

Good to see Ford India acknowledging Team-BHP's Car of the year award in their newsletters. Our votes do matter for manufacturers

Now after so much of appreciation & loads of Awards, it will be very interesting to see the Figo Sales for Jan & Feb....Dec was comparatively low & sales were nos were declining & Wagon R was more than 3 times over Figo in Dec Sales Charts. Indian Market Unique & we always value our Money a Lot. I had seen each & every award Nominations & there was not a single entry from Hero Honda but still they are market leaders with 45% of Market Share, which suggest that we Indians always believe in tried & Trusted Products & wont go behind a new launch...Any way my Vote is for Etios, You cant generate a 12,000 Bookings for a sedan, without even showing a glimpse of a Car, a true Trust in a Brands

Very true Imilind. We vote for the car or bike based on our dreams and fancies but when it comes to buy them, we go for the one that checks all the necessary boxes. Also the outcome of this survey or any award show is NOT the true indicator of what a normal Indian thinks about these cars. For many of us a WagonR is much much better than a unreliable Ford.

Figo's going places now!! Later this year it'll hit the mid-east market. Long range testing across sandy environment is happening now. The car in the pics was displayed at Qatar Motorshow (26 - 29 Jan). This particular sample was a manual transmission but I gathered from folks at the Ford stall that an AT would be launched too. For some vague reason the model name (Figo) was not mentioned on the hatch.

Mods: I uploaded the pics here as I didn't find a suitable thread. Please move them if required.
