Ford has officially unveiled the Figo Concept at the ongoing 2014 Auto Expo in New Delhi. Even though it’s labelled as a concept, it’s very likely that this little car will look nearly identical when it replaces the existing Figo.
“With the Figo Concept, we are showing that choosing a compact sedan does not mean compromising on premium design or smart solutions,” said Kumar Galhotra, Ford’s VP of engineering, global product development in a statement.
Ford’s design DNA is ever present in the small sedan, with a Fusion-style grille and headlights upfront and a sleek, streamlined look out back.
The Figo uses smart design features like electrically folding mirrors to help navigate India’s tight streets and narrow corridors. The mirrors are also made of a special flexible material, reducing the chances that the mirrors will be broken off or hit by another car or motorbike.
Inside, Ford says the Figo will have a spacious cabin with a dock for connecting mobile phones, MP3 players or satellite navigation systems.
Ford has not made any mention as to what engine options might power the Figo Concept. Considering the existing Figo offers a 1.2 liter gasoline engine and 1.4 liter diesel engine with a 5-speed manual transmission, we expect a similar combination when the concept sees production.
