Ford Figo, the flagship hatchback of the American car maker in India is still getting extremely good response from the Indian customers. The hatchback which was launched in India two years ago is up for a mid career makeover. The car maker is thinking to give a facelift to Figo hatchback despite the fact that it is able to rope in good number of sales volumes every month for car maker. However, this makeover could be seen as an aim of keeping it abreast with the increasing competition in the domestic market. The new Ford Figo hatchback project has been codenamed B562, if rumours areto be believed, the company is designing the hatchback from scratch. Nothing has been revealed about the 2014 Ford Figo price, which we expect to be tagged competitively. The project work is at full swing at the company’s Brazil designing unit which is well equipped for the purpose of designing.

The company is believed to launch the new Ford Figo hatchback in Brazil first. After the car is launched in Brazil, it will head to Indian car market. In India, the hatchback will be manufactured at the company’s Sanad manufacturing unti located in Gujarat. The manufacturing is expected to begin in 2014 at the Sanand Gujarat plant.

At the present the small car is being proffered in both petrol and diesel engine options and the new Figo will also be available in both petrol and diesel trims. Ford is receiving awards for its newly developed engine, the 1 litre EcooBoost petrol motor, this engine could be powering the new Figo. This is the very petrol engine which will be powering the new Ford EcoSport compact SUV which is due for launch across the world including the Indian car market. The engine has been bestowed with the prestigious award of ‘International Engine of the Year 2012’. This newly developed engine is known for its fuel economy figures, therefore the new Figo is also expected to return good mileage. Current gen Figo also delivers a decent fuel economy and with the mileage numbers expected to go up, Figo definitely is going to lure the Indian customers.

The diesel variant on the other hand is expected to come equipped with a 1.5 litre TDCI unit. This is the same diesel engine which is currently doing duty on the Ford Fiesta diesel sedan. This diesel powerplant will also be powering the soon to be launched Ford EcoSport. The current gen Ford Figo small car has a good handling but it needs a little pep up in terms of power and torque. This new 1.5 litre TDCI mill can offer the extra power and torque pump to the hatchback.

Nothing much has been revealed by the car maker about the new car, the new version of Figo is likely to come packed with the same set of features which are currently available in Figo. Things which can work out in the favour of the petite vehicle are good space management, comfortable interiors, excellent drivability and a lucrative price tag. These could get Figo the same response or even better which it got when it was first launched in the Indian car market.

Along with launching the new version of Ford Figo small car in India, the American car maker has bigger plans as far as export of this hatchback is concerned. At present the current version of Figo is being exported to 50 overseas markets across the world. The 2014 Ford Figo hatchback seems to be an exciting product from the American car maker.
