The new Figo adopts the same design language that we first saw in the Ford Freestyle and later in the new Aspire as well. As we can see in the list above, there’s a new variant called Titanium Blu which might confuse you into thinking that its a hybrid. Its not.
The Blu variant just gets some visual treatment such as Black grille surround, Blue fog lamp bezels, 15-inch Black alloy wheels, black roof and some decals. The regular Titanium variant gets 14-inch alloy wheels. Other features include front fog lamps, rear fog lamps, OVRM-integrated blinkers, and blacked-out B-pillars.
Inside, the new Figo looks more or less the same as the new Aspire. Features include fabric upholstery, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with embedded navigation, 4 speakers, steering mounted controls, auto AC, power fold OVRMs and more. The Blu variant gets some additional features such as Blue accents on the door, rain-sensing wipers, auto headlamps and leather-wrapped steering wheel.
As for safety, dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, driver & passenger seat belt reminder are standard across all variants. The higher variants get reversing camera, and side & curtain airbags (Blu). The Titanium AT gets ESP, Traction Control and Hill Launch Assist as well.
