Ford Figo Sports Price in India
The new Figo Sports show be priced at about INR 7.1 lakhs for the petrol and close to INR 8.3 lakhs for the diesel model (both being on-road pricing). These versions will be made available very soon and the price differentiator from the Titanium Plus should be about INR 30,000 to INR 35,000.

The differentiator in design will be added the sporty bits. We reckon, there should be black alloy wheels, and some more minor changes in design to make it look different. There are smoked headlamps too. As Ford has been struggling with numbers for the Figo and the Aspire, this could be an opportunity to attract more buyers towards the hatchback. The current Figo does look good, however it will need some more addition to stand out and make it a reason for buyers to consider it over the competition. It could get bigger size tyres also. The Ford Figo Sports will have subtle changes however it will be visible and clearly differentiating it from the regular Figo. From the images leaked, it shows that there is even an S badge, something like on the old Ford Fiesta S. The suspension has been tuned for better comfort and drive.

Ford Figo Sports Interior Changes
On the inside, we aren’t certain if there will be many changes. Some of them could be making the interiors look more sporty. The Ford Figo Sports will be offering the same set of interiors like the current version and we reckon this new variant will be offered with these additional features most likely. We aren’t certain if the Figo will be offering any extra bells and whistles. The Ford Figo Sports Edition seats will don impressive red stitching. There is no touchscreen system on the Figo Sports and Aspire either. There won’t be an S variant on the 1.5-litre petrol engine.
The Ford Figo Sports is just a new variant, so there shall be no difference in the dimensions, space of the vehicle. The Figo will remain a spacious hatchback with comfortable seating even for rear passengers. The boot too is good enough on the Figo making it a good and practical hatchback. To our dismay, there is no rear AC vent, which will help to cool the cabin faster.

Ford Figo Sports Engine and Transmission
There shall be no change in the engines and transmissions on offer. The Figo Sports will be made available with a 1.2-litre petrol manual and a 1.5-litre diesel manual engine options. The manual transmission is five-speed and the auto is a six-speed dual-clutch one. The diesel engine is the most powerful one on offer as it gets a 99bhp power output and 215Nm of maximum torque. This is one of the most powerful engines on offer. There shall be no changes in the power delivery or even the engine tuning. From the looks of it, we reckon the new Figo Sports will have a diesel engine and petrol auto only on offer. The idea could be to offer the powerful engines only to make the car go quicker.
Ford Figo Sports Mileage
|Area||1.2-litre petrol||1.5-litre Diesel|
|City||12 km/l||16 km/l|
|Highway||17 km/l||20 km/l|
The Ford Figo Sports has an excellent efficiency for the diesel, while the petrol is decent enough. In city, the diesel variant returns close to 16km/l, while on the highway it is about 20km/l. On the other hand, the petrol manual has an efficiency of about 12km/l in the city and 17km/l when on an open road. Then the petrol automatic returns about 10km/l in the city and about 14km/l on the highway.
Ford Figo Sports Top Speed
The petrol engine on the Figo Sports should do about 160km/hr, while the diesel will comfortably cross 180km/hr. The petrol automatic too shall have a top speed on 170km/hr.
Ford Figo Sports Ride and Handling
Ford claims that the ride and handling aspects of the Figo S have been altered. With the 15-inch tyres, the grip seems to have improved. To be honest, the Figo always had good ride and handling. To find out the difference, we will have to drive the Figo and the Figo S back-to-back. The changes should be subtle and not too much of a difference.
Ford Figo S : Should you buy it?
We reckon the changes are good and if you love driving and need something sporty, this is a good option. However, if you are the one who is need of more features, we reckon add a bit more of moolah and pick up the Titanium+ variant. The difference in pricing of the Titanium and the Sports is about INR 50,000. The Figo Sports is recommended for those who need better driving dynamics and that fun element, which has been going missing in the newer Fords.
