Of course, it will take some time for the Figo or for that matter any other hatch to capture the top spot. However, Ford isn't taking this lightly, after all, its Rs.1300 crores on stake! They know that they cannot let go of this opportunity. They will do everything possible to ensure success of the Figo. As far as VW is concerned, sure, they offer snob value, but the Figo is the better VFM
car. You get a fully loaded Figo for the price of a base Polo! Now that, is what i call value-for-money. And even though the Polo is a great car at this price, i can guarantee that it will not at all pose a threat to the current market leader, the MS Swift.
