Whoosh-whoosh with Ford Figo!
Pros : compact design, great pick up, impressive handling and perfect price
Cons : a bit congested rear seats
I finally got a chance to test drive one of the most successful cars by Ford, called Ford Figo Diesel LXI. This hatchback by Ford is a perfect drive. Under the hood, the 1.4 Litre Duratorq diesel engine is very powerful and manages to churn out 69 PS of maximum power with 160 Nm of peak torque. The five speed manual transmission pushes the car to deliver an awesome mileage of 14.8 to 19.7 km per litre.
On the other hand, the acceleration and pick up of the car is no less. Ford Figo Diesel LXI has a top speed of 153 km per hour and takes the car from 0 to 100 km per hour in 16.3 seconds. The suspension system of this hatchback is quite impressive. On the front one will find Independent McPherson Strut with Dual Path mounts while the rear axle has semi-independent twist beam and coil spring. To enhance the handling of the car, power steering is present, while air conditioning system makes the driving much comfortable and relaxing. Overall, Ford Figo Diesel LXI comes out to be a clear winner.
