Engine Options In Ford FigoFord Figo has been launched with 2 engine options:

  • 1196cc DuraTec Petrol - 70 Bhp 
  • 1399cc DuraTorq Diesel - 68 Bhp
The diesel engine is the same 1.4 Duratorq 68bhp motor that powers the Ikon & Fiesta saloons. The Duratorq motor is incredibly responsive at low speeds and hugely economical too which should suit the urban driving conditions the Figo will mostly cater to.

The petrol engine is the all new all-aluminium 1.2-litre petrol motor which is essentially a scaled-down version of Sigma petrol engines that power the Fiesta saloon. It generates maximum power of 70 Bhp. Belonging to the same engine family, it shares common architecture like double overhead cams, four valves per cylinder an aluminium block.

A five-speed manual transmission is standard equipment on both engines. The clutch has been designed for low effort due to frequent application for shifting in high traffic found in the Indian market. Zero to 100 kilometres per hour performance is 15.5 seconds for the petrol engine and 15.8 seconds for the diesel variant. Based on Ford’s proven global small car architecture, Figo has been thoroughly tuned for Indian drivers. With the longest wheelbase in the B-car segment at 2489 millimetres, chassis dynamics have been optimised with new steering and suspension components.

Verdict: Let us wait and see the fate of custom made Ford Figo in a playground where the bigboy VW Polo vye for attention and compete with the likes of Fiat Punto, Hyundai with i10(going down the market already),  Skoda Fabia and most importantly the market leader Maruti Suzuki who has many variants like Suzuki Ritz, Suzuki Swift, Suzuki Dzire etc in this range!
