The upcoming Ford Figo facelift has been spotted completely undisguised in India. However, the test car is sporting a Ka+ badge which suggests that this may not be an India-spec version. The Ford Figo hatchback is sold as the Ka+ in global markets and hence we can expect to get similar updates on the Figo facelift here in India. 

The Ka+ facelift was globally unveiled in February 2018. The updated model receives a new front bumper with a revised air dam and C-shaped chrome fog lamp surrounds. The front grille has a chrome frame and mesh, while the headlamps feature chrome inserts. In the rear, the Figo / Ka+ facelift gets a new bumper and tail lights, while on the interior, the car gets a redesigned dashboard with a touchscreen infotainment system in the centre. The recently unveiled Ford Freestyle has a similar dashboard. The Aspire sedan is also likely to get similar updates.

In India, the Figo facelift is expected to be offered with Ford's new 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder Dragon Series petrol engine. The engine also does the duty on the Freestyle and is based on the 1.5-litre Dragon Series engine which debuted on the new EcoSport. This engine produces 95 BHP and 120 Nm of peak torque. Meanwhile, the 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine with 99 BHP / 215 Nm will be retained.
