Thanks for info. I will use this while Meeting hundai boy.
Well figo is good choise. if everything goes well I will give booking amt. 1 month is wating period.
Well correct me as I m not listing swift as a first time car buyer. M not doing mistake??
Take Figo 1.2 Petrol, its a wrong notion that Figo 1.2 petrol is bad, actually its good for its class, the other engines the 1.5 TDCi and the 1.5 P AT of Figo are so much better than anything south of 10 lakh Rs such that one getting into petrol will complain ,
Again the users of Figo 1.2 petrol are reporting mileage thats on same level as of an Alto K10 in Trivandrum city traffic, like 12 kmpl in city and 18-19 kmpl highway,
The users also reported that if one is ready to drive little mileage consciously Figo will easily give 14 kmpl city and over 20 kmpl highways,
Regarding Power it has good low end and high end power but mid range is flat means car feels labored between 2000-4000 rpm by providing somewhat flat torque rather than rising curve of Kappa engines and K series engines, and thats something one will hate only when car is fully loaded and needs a sudden overtake, otherwise its balance of power and handling and ride is impeccable
Ford is giving discounts of upto 25000 Rs for Figo Titanium and Titanium+ variants, so check with dealer and if the Titanium fits the budget its a no brainer,
,I ve been owning a Figo 1.2 petrol for the past 5 years and I bet, Ford is even better than Hyundai nowadays in terms of ASS
at least here in Trivandrum, my car is running superb as well,I took my car for 4.54 lakhs on road back in 2010 its ZXi model and till now its never broken a sweat, and even today cars worth 2-3x times the price cant match my Figos ride+handling balance and its built solid and tough unlike wafer thin Marutis and Hyundais and even Hondas and Toyotas,
My service costs for past 5 years never crossed 7000 Rs, the 7000RS service was the 4th one where fuel filter and was changed and we wanted to inspect for some possible rattles which were fixed thats it, really happy that we chose Figo over i10,Swift,etc back then,
So my suggestion is go for it, It would be great if Titanium is the pick, will easily add 20-25k extra fr the car while at resale considered.
