Ford Figo Celebration Edition launched, price starts at Rs. 4.15 lakh
Its Ford 3rd Birthday and what could have been better to make its fans happy with a special edition of its best selling hatchback Figo. The car maker has launched the Ford Figo Celebration Edition today with a price tag of Rs. 4.15 lakh for the petrol variant, while the diesel one costs Rs. 5.16 lakh. The company has made sure that this special edition of Figo looks very alluring and much better than the other variants in the range. There are a lot of cosmetic changes that will see here. The satellite navigation system, refurbished rear spoiler, special edition seat covers, edition badging, rear parking sensors and more will steal your heart away.
On the other hand, Ford decided not to touch the heart of the hatchback. This means that you would still get the Celebration Edition Figo with the same engine options. If you wish to buy the petrol variant, the 1.2-Litre engine will be on duty, whereas the diesel variant of Celebration Edition Ford Figo sports 1.4-Litre motor. Both the motors are coupled with the standard five-speed manual transmission keeping it as much frugal and sporty performers as before.
Ford Figo is certainly one of the best selling cars of Ford India and launching the Celebration Edition on the occasion of its Birthday will not only boost the sales but also showcase the love and appreciation of the company towards its consumers. Besides this, Ford India is also in plans to bring in Ford EcoSport SUV to the country’s car market very soon. If reports are to be believed, this crossover SUV will arrive in India in next couple of weeks. Ford EcoSport will give a direct competition to Renault Duster and if priced correctly, this could be a huge success for the firm here.
