“Ford is committed to serving customers in India and is proud to introduce our world-class automatic technology for customers in the mass-market segment,” said Vinay Raina, executive director for Marketing, Sales & Service at Ford India. “With a proven legacy of outstanding performance, unmatched safety, superior technology, and segment-best connectivity, we are confident that the new Figo AT will be an automatic choice for new buyers who don’t believe in look-alike automatics like AMT.”

For braking, the front wheel uses a ventilated disc, and the rear wheel uses a drum. The dimensions of the automatic variants are 3941 mm (length), 1704 mm (width), and 1525 mm (height). The boot space is 257 litres; the wheelbase is 2490 mm; and the kerb weight is 1081-1094 kg.

The upgraded version of the Ford Figo will compete against the likes of the Maruti Sukuzi Baleno, Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS, Hyundai i20, and Volkswagen Polo hatchback.
