The present Ford Figo model was launched in the year 2015 and has been ageing rapidly. The Figo is one of the most unique and powerful hatchbacks available although it has not garnered high sales volumes in the Indian market. The facelifted Ford Figo model, however, may be a game changer for the company in India. The 2018 Ford Figo has been snapped testing on Indian roads with heavy camouflage and is expected to get several design upgrades and possibly a new engine option.
The 2018 Ford Figo may get a new mesh grille which will be replacing the present model’s chrome slats and the grille may be inspired by the 2018 Ford Mustang model. There will be revamped bumpers along with brand new alloy wheels and a blacked out headlamp. The tail lights may be redesigned and the bumper may be upgraded as well.
