Ford India discontinues Ford Classic, Ford Fiesta and first gen Ford Figo – Report

Aravind

Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

New lineup includes Ford EcoSport, 2015 Ford Figo twins and 2016 Ford Endeavour.

According to ET Auto, Ford India has discontinued the production of the Ford Classic sedan, Ford Fiesta and the first generation Ford Figo, leaving space for their future lineup of new products.

The aging Ford Classic is now replaced by the sub-4m Ford Figo Aspire.

While the discontinuation of the old Ford Figo is attributed to the arrival of the second generation model this year, the Ford Classic and Ford Fiesta have not been faring well in the highly competitive compact sedan segment – registering low double digit sales figures since May 2015, forcing the company to end its production to prevent further losses.

The Ford Classic is replaced by the new Ford Figo Aspire, while a successor to the Ford Fiesta isn’t anywhere in sight. The new report also squashes rumors that Ford will retain the first generation Ford Figo, and dub it as Ford “Figo Classic” to continue serving as the entry-level product in Ford India’s range.
