Ford India is still waiting for its turn to launch the EcoSport mini SUV. The automatic version of the Fiesta was the company’s sole launch in 2012, apart from the reshuffling of the Fiesta variants. Instead of whiling away time, the American auto maker has turned attention towards its existing product line. The company’s best selling model, Figo, has been on the market since early 2010.
Plenty of launches have unfolded in the last two years in the B-Segment and with many more to come, Ford may have been convinced to advance the launch of the facelift. Regularly upgrading products is the easiest way to keep the customer interested.
A Motor Vikatan reader has snapped the Figo with new school bus yellow paintwork and cosmetic changes. The headlight and tail lights have been redesigned while one can also see duct tape pasted near the fog light area. The Figo is a re-skinned and heavily localized Mk5 Fiesta. Ford is also about to realize its ambition of exporting the Figo to 50 countries.
Let us have a word with Ford India for more updates on this one. Stay tuned for it.
