Ford has unveiled the Figo Concept which
will head the global B-segment compact car expansion for the company. Ford’s
aim is to set new standards in terms of quality, design and technology in the
compact car market. Ford expects compact car sales in India to grow from about
1 million units last year to roughly 2 million units in 2018. The shape of the
Ford Figo Concept was fine-tuned through hundreds of hours of wind-tunnel
testing to improve aerodynamics and reduce wind noise, ensuring a quiet ride
that will match the vehicle’s refined exterior. Aerodynamic tweaking has also
resulted in a shape that maximises fuel efficiency, helping the Ford Figo
Concept to slip smoothly through the air.
Nigel Harris, Ford India President said, “Consumers
expect and demand great fuel efficiency and low cost-of-ownership from the
initial price throughout the life of the vehicle. The Ford Figo Concept offers
all of this, and more, with sophistication, fresh design, world-class quality,
a roomy interior, and innovative smart and safe technology”. Smart design
features like electrically adjustable power-fold mirrors are practical, helping
to remove the stress of driving through a busy and congested environment. The
mirror’s architecture prevents them from being broken off if bumped by another
car or motorbike.
