But not ‘for’ India, unfortunately.

Sorry for the PJ, but I just could not resist after reading this piece of news. Ford is locally manufacturing the Figo 1.6 Auto-transmission in India at their Chennai plant, especially for export purposes in Middle-East, and the car will be launching there early next year. Wonder if it will launch in our own country, in-spite of being locally manufactured here?

Wow !!! Something Interesting. I have seen Fiesta 1.6 and Ford Ikon 1.6. This would be rocket. They should have manual version rather than automatic.

Let us hope that Ford follows the 1.6 tradition in Figo too!

THe already peppy Figo with 1.6 litre 105 PS engine from the Fiesta will definitely be a feast to enthusiasts!

Throw in a neat set of alloys and broader section of tyres with a neat manual transmission and we can get our hands on the Figo 1.6S. Performance at an affordable price!:lol!:

Finally now we have a reason to be happy. Hormazd Sorabjee has confirmed that Ford is seriously planning to launch the Figo 1.6 in India. The launch date and other information is not revealed yet.

Lets wait till July and wait for more details to emerge.

If you want a hot hatch, go for Polo 1.6
