Figo controlled my fuel expenses!
Pros : excellent mileage, great handling, cool looks
Cons : lacks safety features, high maintenance costs
After rolling over the streets for the more than a few months now, I have found ultimate satisfaction in terms of mileage and fuel efficiency with my Ford Figo Diesel ZXI. I am currently over viewing a construction site under contract that requires me to go multiple places and perhaps longer run than usual. This was a problem before owning the Figo, but the situation is completely on track now since I am able to manage a mileage of around 15 Kmpl in the city and highways promise more than 18 Kmpl. This is very satisfying especially after witnessing the rise of prices in the fuel every now and then. The hatch is perfect in terms of handling and cruising through the streets. It seems light weight and the steering is very responsive. I am not a very fussy driver when it comes to taking longer cuts but in my Figo, it all comes easy and I really don’t care much the distances.
The interiors of the car are pretty decent though I find the plastic very ordinary but as long it’s in place, it is okay with me. The car has a significant lacking for safety features like the ABS etc. which I expected to come in the variant comparing it with the price but that too doesn’t make up for a great deal of problem. The maintenance of Ford seems tedious due to high cost of spare parts but as long as I have my free services remaining I won’t worry much with the fact. The interiors have ample space, boot space is also good and altogether it is a comfy hatch. The looks are cool too and the mileage as I already mentioned is brilliant!
