Wonderful review. I really love the red Figo and the alloys, though the tyres seem a bit too much upsized. Of late Figo's looks seem to be growing on me. Congrats

Thats a hot Figo. Love the wheels, tyre pattern and size, interior "non-standard" equipments and the excellent pictorial review. Initially I was not a fan of a red Figo, but this thread has changed my perception about red on the Figo. Congratulations for the "hawt" Figo. Drive safe.

OT- Rated it 5-stars. It certainly deserves it !!

Hello Everybody: Thank You for the adorable comments. Regrets for the imminent absence, as I am travelling at the moment and will be able to respond to all of you at a feasible stage.

Till the time being you may like to take a look at: Figo is the best hatchback in India in 2010| Driving Ford on similar lines.

Like everyone else mentioned, fantastic presentation. It was a delight to see and read about the experience.

Is it just me or the picture right below the 150kmph quote is while the Speedo needle shows zero?

Tirthankar, what a report man! If any thread deserves a 5 star rating, this is it. Fab pictures, and even better captions. I'm glad my Figo drive helped you in your hatchback research.

Sold your Innova? IMHO, the Figo is best as a city car, and the Innova well-suited to highways. Why did you get rid of the Toyota?

I'm glad that Tirthankar was responsible enough to shoot only when the car was stationary (rather than 150)

Tirthankar, a superb review of your experience with the Figo. I'm glad that Ford took note of it too, shows a proactive attitude.

Your pictures and accompanying captions are as usual very entertaining and your Figo looks great with the alloys and tyres. Did you get the work done at the dealer itself?

Brilliant pictures & an amazing looker of a car !! So we know for a fact, that the Figo can look hot, given the right "treatment"

The ES 100's look nice. Must have improved the fantastic handling even more. What tyre size are you running ??


Congrats on aquiring a brilliant VFM car.



Cheers

great review, just curious how many kms have you clocked in? with the additions of accessories any reason for not going in for the titanium?

anyways excellent choice of wheels and happy and safe motoring

Wow nice Ad for Figo Basu.

Your car definitely looks good and by the way hows it shifting from a very roomy innova to Figo?

Post more drivoblogs buddy. Been missing for a while

You definitely have the FIGOttitude. Stunning transformation. Seems directly from one of the "Fast and Furious" movies. Would surely like to know the details of the accessories and alloys and what was the total cost :-P
