thats interesting. Initially, when i had expressed my interest for Figo on their website, i received a call with the intention of fixing up a dealership that can contact me. I had specifically mentioned "St. Marks Road Metro Ford" as the most convenient w.r.t proximity. However, it was Lathangi that was provided with my details!! I attributed it to some kind of "Ford's Load balancing mechanism b/w dealerships" ... but now i doubt whether Ford was giving preference to Lathangi.

Any way to find out how many Figos have been delivered by each of the dealerships? (it might help ppl booking a Figo in future)

Yippie.. i'm a BHPian now

I'm asking because the sales rep said I cannot sell the audio system from exi back to ford and buy the bluetooth one instead. Mustang, any ideas?
One of my friends got himself a bluetooth gadget that connects to the music system. It functions just as the one on the zxi except that the functions are on this gadget that could be placed anywhere as per your convenience. It costed him around Rs.6500/-. If the only thing you like in the ZXi list of add ons is the blue tooth system i suggest you check out for this gadget. Spend the Money you save on some nice alloys.

Dont go purely by the brochure. Seems to have a lot of mistakes.

Gemi had posted some differences and additions in his model. They also add up and give more value to the zxi.

True - I saw the same on a site like dealextreme.com. Seems quite advanced. But get a proper set in India.

Are you sure? The Figo website says that the Tacho is available only in Zxi and Titanium.

@Brix - I think these FM transmitters is separate and do not connect to the Audio System in the car. If there is any gadget which can be connected to the system, then it would be better.
@mkerala - You are discussing more about USB cables. Is it possible to have a converter with USB provision and then have a Bluetooth USB which can be connected to the Audio System in the car. Any ideas ???

1.2 Duratec Petrol EXI
Starting from Rs. 3.82 Lakhs

1.2 Duratec Petrol ZXI
Starting from Rs. 4.00 Lakhs

This is taken from ford website, so i think the difference is just 18k. But you get more for 18k.


Rear Wash / Wipe
Rear Defogger with Auto Cut-off
Electric adjustable outside mirrors
Body color door handle and mirror
Driver Seat Height Adjustable
Bluetooth
Chrome finish
Cargo lamp

How much do you value for these?

Maruti is charging 25k for lxi to vxi in estilo. When they offer only first four plus rear power window.

happy.tripathy
Lovely car! Congrats

Guys need some clarification here!

The 1.4 Figo is 69KW which means its only 50BHP??

And the 1.2 Figo is 71KW which again translates to 52BHP

Can someone confirm this?? Until now the car was advertized as 70bhp now I see its been changed to 70KW?

Even when GTO reviewed the Figo he mentioned it as 70BHP for the 1.2

52.4KW = 71PS for the 1.2L Petrol
50.7KW = 69PS for the 1.4L diesel

Where's the confusion Cap'n.
