ABS is a feature that definitely helps in braking at high speeds and is a good safety feature. No one is against abs. It's just that the version i have booked has no abs and I wanted a feedback from a trend owner regarding braking performance if the non abs car.

However only trend variants are available off the shelf. Moreover insurance is free and I'll get a trend variant for around 7l otr here. My running will be in busy city roads with a maximum speed of 80 and 30% highway blasts at more than 100 kmph. Do you think I should stretch for titanium variant for ABS?
As thoma said its advisable to go for the Titanium variant with the ABS.

I do miss ABS every time on the limit even after the 195/55 R 15 setup. BUT other than on the limit / emergency braking situations the braking on TREND variant is adequate.

Thank you Karan and Thoma for your advice. Went to the dealer. Zeroed on the titanium variant white. Total damages 7.55l otr cochin. I think it's worth spending 40k over the trend for the goodies. Moreover 14 inch alloys with tires ll fetch a good price on exchange for 15 inchers.

I have a query regarding the new Figo, specifically the Titanium variant. Is it possible to swap the HU with an aftermarket touchscreen unit?

Yes. A replacement panel is available on eBay for 3500. Any 2 DIN unit can be installed into it. Just get the right connector to avoid wire splicing.

And if you do change your HU, I would like to have the original one.

Hi Karan,
I am getting delivery of white Titanium TCDi tomorrow. What tyre upgrade do you suggest? Has the 15-195s worsened ride quality significantly? My car will be used for daily runs on bad city roads 70% of the time. Stuck between 195 60 R14 on stock alloys vs 195 55 R 15 on new alloys.Please advise.

A nice video review of the Ford Figo, Karan! I felt that the gear ratios also had a role to play in the drag. Are the gears evenly spaced out with this gearbox?

Hi, congrats on the purchase
If you want the cosmetic upgrade then only go in for 195/55 R15. Otherwise 195/60 R14 will work well (specially for bad roads)
All the best!

Thanks !
Yes, but the most important factor was power/weight.

@karan561

Hi, Really liked the video review, keep it up. I am planning on purchasing a Ford Figo Titanium 1.5 D variant but i am a little confused between its competitor Hyundai Grand i10.

The things that is putting me off from Ford is the
1. Only 3 A.S.S. in Mumbai (major downside)
2. Start - Stop (can live with)
3. Auto Folding Mirrors (When you lock the car) {can live with}

Hyundai excels at the above point & the only downside being that the Grand i10 is only 1.1 Ltr.

I've heard Ford's A.S.S being costly so in that regards can you post some numbers regarding service costs etc? Also is there any scarcity of parts as i've also heard that spare parts are not usually available in stock with A.S.S and they tend to put you on hold for a week or so till the parts arrive. have you ever faced such problem?

Overall how is the car would you recommend it over the Grand i10 & why apart from the 1.5 ltr engine in the figo

It is the no of cylinders that is the biggest put off for me on the Grand i10. To be frank, I have not even test driven one for the same reason; but I have tested many other 3 cylinder cars and ran away from those in the first instance including the old Polo diesel.

P.S: Would be glad to be corrected on the NVH levels as the Grand i10 falls in my budget range.

Congratulations on booking the car!

Regarding On Road Price, I got my Figo 1.5D Titanium on last Dussehera (2015) and it costed me around Rs. 795000/-.

IIRC Figo and Aspire did undergo a price cut, has it not? The OTR should have been lesser. Am I missing something here? Or is it Titanium+ variant?
