    Delhi 2014: Ford Figo sedan "Concept"

    Ford Puts a Boot on Ka and Names it the Figo Sedan Concept
    FEBRUARY 03, 2014
    Carscoops

    One of the most noteworthy world premieres at this year's edition of India's Auto Expo 2014 (February 7-11) is the new Figo Concept, which is four-door sedan version of the Ka Study shown in Brazil late last year.

    The small sedan, which we think looks its best when viewed from the front where it sports Ford's very Aston Martin-like mouthpiece, is a precursor to a production model that will follow next year in a toned down form.

    Note that the Figo sedan is not the same as the Ka sedan elsewhere. The Figo will be shorter to be under 4 meters for the India Government has lower taxes on vehicles shorter than 4 meters.

    Figo sedan:

    So much for the one-world Ford? New variants are sprouting up everywhere.



    Ford Escort for China?

    One Ford will always allow vehicles that are needed for specific markets. China needs a cheap compact, so Ford brought back the Escort.

    What you will not see is multiple vehicles serving the same purpose. So if South America needs a cheap compact, they will NOT develop their own model, but will use the Escort.

    How can they do such a fine job on putting tasteful details on the front end and completely ignore the rear view of the car. If the rear had as much attention to detail as the front, this could be the best looking car in its segment.

    IMHO "stubby" cars look better as a Hatchback VS a sedan and this FIGO is TO stubby for its own good looks wise

    Looks good.

    The greenhouse and side glass look very ol'school Escort to me.

    The Old Focus is going even lower in price and being launched on the new requirement brand.

    Escort fills the void between the old Focus and the new Focus.
