6-speed Powershift gearbox confirmed.
Seen here are the first images of the 2015 Ford Figo in its India-spec avatar. Ford India has confirmed that it will launch the hatchback tomorrow (September 23, 2015), just 40 days after it launched the Figo Aspire, which is nothing but the sedan version of the new Figo.
While the exterior of the India-spec Figo hatchback is identical to the Aspire in many aspects - save for the boot - such as alloy wheels, grille, headlight clusters, wing mirrors etc, Ford India has made subtle styling changes on the inside.
Where the Aspire gets a dual-tone black-and-beige dashboard, the Figo hatchback makes do with an all-black theme with silver accents for the center console and AC vents. However, it appears to sport the same features seen on the Aspire. These include automatic climate control, a multifunction steering wheel, electric adjustment for the ORVMs, Ford's SYNC multimedia system, at least two airbags, folding rear seat back and an optional automatic transmission.
The hardware of the Figo hatchback is expected to be identical to the Figo Aspire. Hence, the 6-speed Powershift dual-clutch automatic transmission is likely to be paired to a 1.5-liter Ti-VCT petrol engine, while a 5-speed manual will do duty on the 1.2-liter Ti-VCT petrol and the 1.5-liter TDCi diesel.
Prices and specifications of the new Figo hatchback will be announced tomorrow.
