Default South America: Ford Ka (Figo) facelift spied

Test mules of the Ford Ka facelift have been spotted South America. The Ka is sold as the Figo in India and it is likely that it will receive the same updates as the South American car.

The Ford Figo and Aspire compact sedan have been on sale for 2 years now and are due for a mid-life facelift. The updated Figo is likely to get cosmetic changes that could include a restyled grille, headlamps, tail lamps, new alloy wheels and reworked bumpers. On the inside, it is possible that Ford might add some features to the car. The infotainment system could be upgraded with a touchscreen device.

Ford will debut its Dragon series engine in the upcoming EcoSport facelift. The updated Figo along with the Aspire compact sedan are likely to receive a new engine as well. This unit could be a revised version of the 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder unit from the Dragon series.

According to media reports, the all-aluminium Dragon series engine is believed to be 10 percent lighter compared to a 4-cylinder Sigma series engine, which is used to power the Figo at present. Some of the features that the engine is expected to have are an integrated exhaust manifold, hydrodynamic bearings for the rocker shaft, variable oil pump, dual-valve independent valve control, ignition coils for each cylinder and centralized spark plugs along with hydraulic tappets with rotor arms.

With the news of FORD KA face-lift how can the FORD KA+ Sedan be left behind? But how come the testing is done in Colorado?

That sedan can easily fit into the Ciaz/Verna/City/Vento/Rapid segment, replacing the Fiesta (which Ford doesn't seem to want to resurrect anyway).

Ford already has the Engines (1.5TDCi & potentially the 1.5 Dragon Petrol?), and know how to put together a brilliant car (Fiesta & Ecosport).

It's mind-boggling how inept these guys are, given the possibilities they're sitting on.

Ford Figo Face-lift now spied in India . A 2018 launch,

However, the big news is that the Figo and Aspire facelifts will get the all-new 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol motor, essentially a derivative of the new Dragon series of petrol engines which will soon make its debut on the upcoming EcoSport facelift.

The Dragon range is expected to come with technology like an integrated exhaust manifold, a rocker shaft with hydrodynamic bearings, a variable oil pump and a dual-valve independent valve control. It is also believed to feature individual ignition coils for each cylinder, spark plugs centralised in the combustion chamber and hydraulic tappets with rotor arms. This full-aluminium engine is believed to be over 10 percent lighter than the current four-cylinder Sigma motor
