For some reason, this car looks like a Ford Fusion to me!

Correct. The Fusion is built on the Fiesta Platform after all.

I just a new showroom opened up near SRP Tools junction near Perungudi in Chennai. They had kept a blue Fiesta Sxi out in front.

Looks like its really heating up.

Default Ford India to phase out Fusion with launch of Figo

Ford India to phase out Fusion with launch of Figo- Automobiles-Auto-News By Industry-News-The Economic Times

This was expected to happen and Ford was always in a 'conFusion' whether to position the Fusion as a small SUV or premium hatchback.

Is there any update on this car in Chennai? Are the pricing information out? Is the car available for TD in dealerships?

Even I saw this some time back when I went there to check the Ford Fiesta special edition. I guess the banner is there since end of January. Btw, I talked to one of the salesmen there and he said, it would come for display near the end of Feb and deliveries will start in March.

I am looking for a hatch and have almost finalized beat. Just waiting for a week to atleast have a look on Figo.

If the pricing is going to be compettive, I would recommend Figo. In Beat 6+ Feet persons have difficulty in driving plus the total interior space. In all the reviews Figo is getting "a perfect 5 seater" car tag. But in the top variant with the price tag Figo would be on higher side and lot many goodies are there in beat.

Was test driving the Ford Fiesta with Fortune Ford at Hyderabad today !
The salesman told me that the Figo display cars would be in the showroom by next week.
There will be 4 variants for the petrol 1.2 with prices starting at 3.5 lakh ex showroom

Leave aside the display cars... There are secret test drives happening for people who have booked the car!

Yesterday, my colleague spotted a Green Figo in his apartment complex at 10PM bought for a TD with Temp regn plates
