tough choice- boils down to whether you need a boot separate or not
if so - Indigo eCS it is!
if otherwise, FIGO without a doubt.
I would personally vote FIGO because it is newer tech, better finished, extreme VFM and has the nice 1.4 TDCi mill from the Fiesta squashed into it. And I like the car a lot basis the TD I did some time ago.

My family was facing the same dilemma, and opted for the Indigo CS because of the boot and proper sedan looks. That said, if your priorities are indeed boot space, roomy interiors, then there is really no comparison. The Figo is a great car to drive, the diesel engine is a gem, the gearshift and handling are sporty, but it's not great on bootspace or interior room. It's rather claustrophobic, with the dark plastic and seats, and you sit low.
I also felt that the bumpers were too flimsy. The Ford dealers showed me how it would bounce back because the plastic was so soft, but in reality, it just gives too easily and transfers damage to valuable components behind it. I've been rear-ended by an Indicab, a bike and also reversed into a pole, but there isn't even a scratch on my Indigo's bumpers. The clips on one side got damaged, but it's an easy replacement.
If you like driving, go for the Figo, it's a much better car to drive fast due to great handling. The Indigo won't offer as many thrills, but the eCS is the best vehicle made till date on the Indica platform. Test drive both with your family and make a decision for yourself. That said, the eCS CR4 diesel is no slouch. The turbo lag is a lot less and it is very driveable. The DiCOR engine is much smoother than before and is eager. Give it a chance. You might be surprised.
