Good question you asked there Sanjay. But, I guess it needs a separate thread to discuss about all that you asked. Maybe, you can open a thread in Indian Car Scene if there arent any threads on this topic.

Hi,

Just called up the chennai showroom, they said base P version will be priced at 3.46 lacs as per their records, it will be available in the showroom for display from Feb 20th onwards. They said the Top end diesel version(titanium) will be priced below 6 lacs for sure(not disclosed the correct price for top variants). Booking already started there , more than 70 bookings already. Min amount is Rs.10000

You can join the mad scramble for diesel cars before budget session to avoid being charged extra...

Nah, i don't see dual pricing for diesel. Will encourage black marketers.

But this is not the thread to discuss this.

Thats a great price for a Bigger hatch.

Guess even Volkswagen officials will be keen to know the price,
and price their Polo accordingly.
Now can we expect huge discounts on i10, A-star, Ritz?

Good to note that the top end Diesel would cost less than 6L. I guess it would be good if is even lesser so as to really make an impact.

Is it better to wait and watch, rather than buy immediately?

The pricing of the Polo is going to be very interesting......... !

3.46 seems like the real deal. Yes very feasible. Anyway by the third week of Feb, all details would tumble out.

3.46 seems to be a good pricing and can crack the initial sale volume. Hope Ford will price in that range.

3.46 for base model ? I am sure a game for it, keeping my fingers crossed for the big day when ford will anounce the prices.
Does any one know if any of dealer at Delhi is taking advance booking ?

I think more than team Bhpian's VW guys will be anxious to know about FIGO’s pricing and vise versa. I think both want to hold on there price cards till the last moment.

Now the question is who will declare the prices first, interestingly neither Ford nor VW has announced a probable date for announcing prices.

It’s a wait and watch game !

The Figo will be launched in the 1st week of March. Stocks will be sent to the dealer by the 3rd/4th week of February! Expect the OTR price for Petrol Titanium in the range of 4.5 Lakhs (Need to be confirmed by Ford anyway)!

Ford Figo would be launched before 10th march I think. I'm sure we'll will see new ads on TV during IPL matches. Would be feast to eyes to see new ads of all these figo, polo and puntos during ipl breaks.

Guys,

I have enquired the dealers in chennai & coimbatore. They informed that FIGO delivery will be made from March 6th. TD will be available from 20th. The bookings are already opened.

Video Grab from Clip posted by TJ123.

Comparing Figo with Zen Estilo

Figo has
1. better ground clearance
2. It is much wider than estilo
3. Slightly shorter
4. Has wider tires

Comparing Figo with Alto
Overall a much bigger car.
