May I know who / what's your source? As I wrote, I got first hand info from someone whose credibility can't be questioned at all. But yeah, you can wait for the review for a confirmation.

Top variant (Blu) is only available in three drab colors (White, Silver & Grey), so none of them were really going to be any better than the other.

Why in hell have they gone and done this heinous idiocy?!?

It seems manufactures are bent on making Indians compromise on something or the other if they want a safety-kit loaded top variant.

Even the erstwhile Figo S media drive had white cars. The blue inserts do not match other colours better than white and silver. Though I wished to see the blu variant in black too.

I guess Ford would have been loud and clear if the 'Blu' version is actually the 'S' variant. They would have definitely talked about lowered/stiffer springs, the biggest differentiator in the pre-facelift.
I also feel that the Blu variant is just another name for Titanium Plus with 6 airbags and 15' alloys.
Also, in the pre-facelift figo S the only sore point was that it came with only 2 airbags and didn't come in the top trim.

Few pictures of the facelift.

Launches today. Guess they have timed it to be in showrooms as the media reviews start leaking out.

re: Scoop! Ford Figo facelift spotted. EDIT: Launched @ Rs. 5.15 lakhs

Why go to all this trouble of even splitting the variants? You got 3 trims to sell, name them - Ambiente, Trend, Titanium. No stupid 'pluses', 'blues', 'ss' required!

If later, you decide to bring in a sporty variant, use the 'S'.

Not having a trend is a big downer. The Titanium will end up costing upwards of 7.5L and higher than Swift VXi. For Figo to succeed it has to come with a shocker price tag!

re: Scoop! Ford Figo facelift spotted. EDIT: Launched @ Rs. 5.15 lakhs

Petrol:
  • Ambiente MT: 5.15 Lakh
  • Titanium MT: 6.39 Lakh
  • Titanium Blu MT: 6.94 Lakh
  • Titanium AT: 8.09 Lakh

Diesel:
  • Ambiente MT: 5.95 Lakh
  • Titanium MT: 7.19 Lakh
  • Titanium Blu MT: 7.74 Lakh
All prices ex-showroom, India.

That's brilliant pricing in my opinion considering all pro's and cons Figo has.

re: Scoop! Ford Figo facelift spotted. EDIT: Launched @ Rs. 5.15 lakhs

Very nice pricing for whats on offer.

Scoop! Ford Figo facelift spotted. EDIT: Launched @ Rs. 5.15 lakhs-figo.jpg

Diesel MT and petrol AT choices are no brainers.

Grandi 10 sportz AT is 7.08 & Swift Zxi AMT is 7.07. The premium over these is definitely worth it since Figo gets a bigger engine, more power and a torque converter AT as compared to Swift's AMT. More importantly Figo gets ESP, TC & Hill start assist which get more importance in my books than the auto this/auto that gizmos.

The diesel is priced at par with i10 and lower than Swift, more power, more torque, gets 6 airbags and yet doesn't sell 10% of what the other 2 manage. Recently I tried to sway a collegaue from Swift to Figo but couldn't despite Figo having a clear edge on all parameters, such is the brand equity of Maruti. His logic was he sees more Swifts than Figos, probably the same logic used by most buyers south of 10 lacs.

Hopefully the Figo & Freestyle combined will get some decent volumes for Ford.

Indeed. Even the AT is only Rs. 24k more than the Swift ZXI+ AMT. For that price, you get a bigger and more powerful engine, mated to a better transmission.

Of course, you miss out on the cosmetic features like LED DRLs etc. And I have a feeling this might impact the sales at the end of the day, as has been the case with the Aspire as well.

Is the AT with paddle shifters and sport mode or without paddles? Sorry, couldn't get this info anywhere and hence the question.
