Looking at this car it reminds of old zen. Should definitely have the handling. Its just the lack of power i chose beat over figo. Figo also looks a few generations old. I have serious doubts whether figo will sell in good nos. (atleast the petrol) unless priced agressively. The odds are against it.
1) Dated looks
2) Underpowered petrol
3) Controversial Ford ***.

However the diesel can be a runaway success.

I have the same doubts - guess those websites copied the data from Team BHP.

Overdrive Ford Figo walk around in HD!

Cheers

PS: I have to admit the pricing is mouthwatering! Leaves room for a reasonably priced 1.6 version

"these prices have been revealed to us by a Ford dealer who claimed the prices to be official. Anyways looks like Ford seems to be in two minds about it, so all we can do is wait and watch."

Yep - thats old news though. Its a multi stage launch. First with Alan, then Job#1 with CM M Karunanidhi, then the actual "release".

I think all these news sites source the news from one another. The actual news sites is telling Figo
launch to be at Taj, Delhi on 9th, which I think would be the case.

As for the pricing, it should not exceed Beat's pricing vis-a-vis versions. PS in Beat, Lxi in Figo -
similarly LS-Exi, LT-Zxi, LTOption-Titanium. Though Beat is not as spacious as Figo, but it is much
more modern car, while Figo saves a lot of money by leveraging an existing platform. Beat has set
the a precedence in aggressive pricing, and Ford would be really foolish not to follow suit.
