Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

IAB was the first publication to get you up close pictures of the upcoming Ford Figo facelift testing in Chennai. Now, ‘Toyoubala’, a forum member of a popular Indian automotive forum TheAutomotiveIndia, brings us a detailed look at the Figo facelift.

The biggest add on is the ‘kinetic blue’ color option on the Figo which makes it look very fresh and sexy. The color option originally debut on the new Fiesta which made it look very vibrant and lively. Although the front fascia is completely camouflaged, we can notice the hexagonal grille which is the new ford design language in action.

The head lamps and the fog lamp housing have been redesigned and so is the new chrome embellished grille. The new 8 spoke alloy wheel design has also been refreshed and is now inspired by the new Fiesta’s wheels.

At the rear, we see that the tail lamps have been wrapped up to hide them for prying eyes. Thus, we can expect a new tail lamp design. A chrome strip has also been added to the tail gate to make the rear look more premium.

The Figo was launched in early 2010 and is nearing its mid-life stage. Ford India has sold more than two lakh units till date. The model is so successful that the company ships petrol variants to 35 countries and there are plans to increase the list to 50 countries.

To continue the successful journey, Ford India has decided to give the Figo a mid-life facelift for the next two years. The facelift has been doing testing rounds since a while now.

We don’t expect Ford to make any mechanical changes to the Figo as it is an old platform. Any mechanical changes such as an addition of PowerShift automatic gearbox would be financially very expensive. The move will be welcomed nonetheless

While speaking to IAB, Ford India’s management confirmed that an upgrade for the Figo will hit the stands in Diwali.

Can the Ford Figo facelift bring some festive sheer to the Ford camp  this Diwali?
