| | Re: Does The Indian Standards of Build Quality Means Safety?
This is an excerpt from autoexpress uk website of the review of Ford Figo aka Ka in Britain.
"The Ka+ is built in India, as Ford is targeting rapidly growing markets hungry for car ownership. However, we know that this formula doesn’t exactly translate to the UK from the brand’s lacklustre EcoSport compact crossover – and it seems like Ford has taken note, too.
So the European Ka+ gets a 47 per cent stiffer front anti-roll bar, new springs and dampers, Fiesta-spec hydraulic engine mounts, more sound deadening, different door seals, new rear suspension bushes, aero tweaks for less turbulence, a stiffer front sub frame, faster steering, revised suspension geometry – you get the picture, it’s a thorough job."http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/ford/ka/97165/new-ford-ka-2016-review
I was really critical of Renault blatantly disregarding safety with a newly grounds up design like the kwid . Now Ford Figo owners what is your opinion about this?
As long as we are obsessed with chrome and bullbars and Bluetooth and touch screen, such attitudes from manufacturers will continue.
