Congrats on being one of the first Figo owners.

I don't know why so much cribbing is there regarding the looks..from all angles, it looks well proportioned without too much flashiness or distraction.

I love the red glow in the ice/console.

Congratulations joe!
Those smoked headlamps look really good with the white colour of your Figo.

I think the red Figo is a beauty. It's a little too loud for me though. Pete's maybe after a year. I think the drivability suffers with the pete's box for the TDCi. The torque and power at around 2000 rpm is much lower than the stock.

Drive safe
Thanks Captain Slow. There's no freebies, except for a pack of sweets. The mats, flaps and boot mats are part of essential pack, costs 1500Rs.

There's only one remote and a standard spare key.

Very nice report too.

Nigel Wark came - that is a nice touch. Finally India as a Third world country is getting its due share of attention.
Thanks. Ford's betting big on the Figo for sure.

Thanks Joe. I didn't. The armrest will be a nice addition but I don't think the dealer will fix it.

CONGRATULATIONS!
For me, Figo looks best in white. Those smoked headlamps look fantastic.
You could have tried Matt finished Black colored alloys, BTW the design you have chosen looks pretty good!
The choice of 14 inch alloys are really limited here. I found this after searching around for two days.

The old diesels like the amby had oil pressure meters too

Isn't Wark based out of India? Where are these guys Wark, Boneham located? Delhi or Chennai?
Sorry I have no clue!

Thanks. Even I love the red glow. The switch's got a nice rubberized feel too.

Thanks. I'll be going to Coorg in two weeks. The 410 kms includes all sorts of roads. It'll be a good workout for the car.

Thanks. When you turn on the ignition, tons of warning lights light up like a christmas tree.

Seems like Ford has learnt a lesson here from Fiesta's horrible green lights which are practically invisible during daylight..particularly the left/right turning indicators..how is it in the Figo?

I'll try to get some more pictures tomorrow. There's a turbo lag below around 1700 RPM. It's one of the few cars in the market now where you can see the bonnet from the driver's seat. So yes, the visibility is pretty good. The front windows are huge too.
