Ford Figo, Now with Bluetooth

After in early-April American manufacturer Ford announced it has broke the 10,000 orders mark, it has now come up with a solution to reward all the confidence Indian buyers invested in the car. Ford will from now on offer a hi-fi audio console complete with Bluetooth connectivity.

The Figo is powered by Ford's 1.4l Duratorq common rail diesel engine, as well as by a 1.2l petrol SEFI one purpose-built for the Figo.

The diesel outputs 69 PS at 4,000 rpm, while the petrol engine develops 71 PS at 6,250 rpm. Both come equipped with a 5 speed manual transmission.

The Figo is being offered in four different models, namely LXI, EXI, ZXI and Titanium, each available with different trim levels. All models also will be available with a Duratorq diesel engine option. Pricing for the entry level models starts at Rs. 3,49,900 (approx. $7,695).

Infotainment in the Figo is insured by using an MP3 music player, with incorporated Radio Data System (RDS) and Plug&Play port for the iPod.

The only thing similar to an on-board computer is the Distance-to-Empty display, which lets the driver know in how many miles the car will run out of fuel.

"Our exciting new Ford Figo shows how serious we are about India,"
Ford's CEO, Allan Mullaly when the Figo was launched into the market at the beginning of the year.
