Ford Figo undergoing final rounds of Testing

It's raining news about Ford now. Till very recently, it seemed as if Ford and GM have exchanged their jobs in India from what is happening in the USA. When GM India was on a spree of launching attractive models one by one at competitive prices (Captiva, Cruze and Beat), Ford was in it's dormant best with no new models to boast of. This is just quite opposite to what's happening in USA (and rest of the world) where Ford is staging an amazing comeback.

Ford finally broke the shackles and woke up from it's slumber when it's CEO Mr. Alan Mulally himself unveiled the company's new big hope in India - the Figo hatchback. Though the Figo (and Ford) missed the limelight at this year's Delhi Auto Expo, it seems that Figo is getting ready to be launched very soon in the market. A friend of mine happened to spot a fleet of Figo test mules being tested in NH45. From the snaps, it's quite obvious that these are almost 99% production ready cars undergoing some final rounds of testing and tweaking before its let out in the market.

Meanwhile automotive media have already driven the hatch and have come out with good, positive reviews. Ford fans, rejoice. The Figo is here finally !!!
