- Sedan feeling: Though my first car was Santro, I drove a lot of Accent Viva in the last year or so. With that I kinda got used to the sedan seating and comfort. And Figo offers exactly that. Front seating is a little low as I like it and rear seat is a little like a sofa [as in hatchback] for parents. So, it’s a perfect blend of what I want. Add good engine power, steering and suspension to the seating comfort and it’s nothing less than a sedan! 🙂
- Power windows lock: Absent.
- Trip meters: Just one. Why not 2?? I prefer one for fuel/ mileage tracking, and the other for actual trips.
- Reverse maneuver alarm: Absent. Ford has nothing to offer in this area; and if you discuss it with any dealer in the market for off-the-shelf ‘music bits’, you warranty will be void.
- Extended Warranty document: Have you ever seen a fake document? This one I received from Ford is the master of all cheap, fake documents – or that’s what it looks like. Ford offers 2 yrs warranty by default. I paid for an year extended warranty. As this third year coverage (120,000 kms) is not opted by everyone, they send you some paperwork to confirm the same. No, I can’t show you that document now- am too ashamed of it! And, shhh… it doesn’t even have a Ford logo on it! I just hope my warranty is extended for real.
- Water in Diesel indicator: Am still surprised how water gets into Diesel. And, according to Ford, this indicator is available for Diesel variants only; meaning, no chance of water mixup with petrol? Anyway, this indicator lights up when there is water in fuel and you immediately rush to Ford to get the filters cleaned up.
P.S.: This is not a full length Figo review. So, there are a few good aspects that are not discussed above, like:
- engine response
- steering performance
- brilliant ride comfort
- windows size that makes the interiors look spacious
Of course, a not-so-good aspect too like:
- ground clearance (I knew this before I bought my Figo, so it’s no surprise to me. I adapted my driving accordingly.)
These are as expected from the car and therefore need no special mention. If you’re looking for a complete review, it’s available on Team BHP.
