9000+kms covered, satisfied with Ford Figo
Pros : legroom and space, features, mileage, AC
Cons : dismal service, headlamps
The Ford Figo 1.4 EXI Diesel has completed more than 9000kms successfully without any major hustle. Ford Figo hatch is just the catch I was looking for, neglecting Maruti Swift for rear-legroom and drivers height (as I m 6 feet+), while feature filled Volkswagen Polo was too costly. There are very convenient features on console that are clear and simple, boot is huge and can keep 3 trolley bags easily. The mileage achieved recently on long drive was 19.5 kmpl (80% ac on), which was lower by 1km than earlier.
Air conditioner is pretty good and cools whole cabin impartially. The service part is a bit poor, must say, but thank God; I just visited twice there since I purchase my Ford Figo. I don’t know why I don’t like the shape of headlamps as it’s very simply crafted, envying Swift.
