What I am interested in is having a look at the prices of fast moving spare parts like brake pads, filters, clutch, bumper, headlight etc.

Any info ?

This could be because of the weight of the car itself. Same here i have also scrapped the belly a couple of times even at almost dead slow speed...It hurts every time it scrapes...

I dont think the weight of the car plays a part in it. May be the shape of the underbody components.

I would definitely like to have a look at the Torque/Bhp graphs of the TDCI engine in the Figo and if possible compare it with the Multijet engine. Especially the curves for the 800-1300 rpm range.

Agreed - second gear on Figo after a speed breaker is not good. I think Ford limited the engine severely. Now why would they do that.

Its more about the large wheelbase, even longer than the fusion.

If thats the case every diesel car will disappoint you, you should have bought a Petrol.

@Eddy, I will ask my SA for it. He is a helpful guy. I'll try to get the spares list on my next visit to South City Ford, Noida.

Its like that in the fusion TDCi also, You have to shift to 1st if you want to cross a large speed breaker comfortably.

It has nothing to do with BS2 & BS4 stuff.

Now regarding the low FE. I had a talk with some of the staff @Chennai regarding this.

This is what i could understand.

1) The TDCi is mainly a Euro 3 engine & it will give max mileage with Euro 3 fuel. Suppose your engine is BS3 compliant then it will give 'x' kmpl with euro 3 fuel

2) After modifying to Euro 4, The car will give 'x-1' kmpl with euro 4 fuel.& 'x-2' kmpl with euro 3 fuel

3) Now heres the problematic part.

If the TDCi is BS4 modified, & If we run it on BS2 fuel, It may give a mileage which is as less as 'x-4' kmpl.

All figures are under the same condition.

So no need to worry guys, All those who are running their figos on BS2 fuel will definitely get 3kmpl or so more when the shift from BS2 to BS3 happens in their city. I think it is going to happen on October 1.

Mustang, what about the other way round...engines compliant with BS3 but now using BS4 fuel? Will the FE increase by this "1" factor?

mustang. i have my doubts here.

All other engines (on other cars) have been showing higher ARAI figures on their BSIV variant, Be it Petrol or Diesel. Please correct me if i am wrong.

And even if your info is true. How can we get 3km/l more when moving from BSII to BSIII in september.

Shouldnt people in the 13 metos be getting higher F.E right now?

If your engine is TDCi BS3 & you use BS4 fuel, the mileage will remain more or less the same. It wont increase but it might drop by a km. But thats negligible i guess.

The change is different for different engines, The TDCi will give a good mileage on BS4 fuel if the TDCi is either BS3 or BS4.

I bet the guys in the metros will be getting more mileage in the figo than you Gemi.

You will get around 2-4 kmpl more when you switch from BS2 to BS3 as it will be the fuel on which the TDCi was originally designed.

If you ask me this in technical language then i am unable to tell you as this is beyond my scope.


To round up the discussion: BS3 & BS4 will give good FE on the Figo TDCi while the BS2 will cause a drop of 2-4 kmpl in your mileage.

I'm told Figo has an intercooler whereas the Fiesta doesn't. Is it true ?

No the figo TDCi does not have an intercooler. The only add on is the Borg Warner KP35 turbo.Its the same turbo as in the fiesta,fusion & Ikon TDCi, The engine received a diesel particulate filter & is now euro 4 compliant.

Would 3 mm increase in wheelbase lead to scrapping of underbelly on speedbreaker? As far as I know, fusion wheelbase is 2486mm whereas figo has 2489mm.
