Spied – Next generation Ford Figo sedan begins testing
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Indian Autos Blog has shown you plenty of spyshots of the next generation Ford Figo (next generation Ford Ka) which is testing in Brazil. Brazilian media reports have also indicated that Ford is planning a sedan derivative on the 2015 Ford Figo, which has been codenamed B562.
Thanks to these spy images from Ronnie Schreiber from The Truth About Cars, we can confirm that Ford is indeed working on a sedan based on the next gen Figo. This test mule was spotted in suburban Detroit, and though its fully camouflaged, the front fascia looks exactly like the B562 prototypes testing in Brazil.
In Brazil, Ford conducted a customer clinic for the new Figo and Figo-based sedan in mid-September. The sampling population were shown prototypes of the new Figo and Figo sedan, and were asked whether the sedan should be named Ka Max, Ka Sedan or Figo.
From these spyshots, it seems as though the Figo sedan would measure over 4 meters in length, though a sub-4m version, if developed, would be a great alternative to the Dzire and Amaze.
The next generation Ford Figo is due to go on sale in Brazil in the middle of next year. In India, it could take until 2015 for the new Figo twins to launch.
