Is The Ambiente Variant Of 2020 Ford Figo Petrol Worth Buying?

The Ambiente is the most affordable variant of Figo petrol and it costs Rs. 5.49 lakh. It gets the following notable features as standard:

  • Safety kit (2 airbags, ABS, parking sensors)
  • Front power windows
  • Tilt steering
  • Body-coloured bumpers
  • Black handles and outside mirrors
  • Black grille
  • Day/night inside mirror
  • 14-inch wheels with 175-section tyres

The notable missing features of Ambiente are:

  • Power mirrors
  • Rear power windows
  • Chrome grille
  • Body-colour mirrors and door handles
  • Music system
  • Remote central locking

Thus, it’s better to at least consider the Trend variant if you can. If you can’t stretch your budget any further, then it’s worth considering this option but you’ll still have to set aside some budget for a music system and remote central locking.

Is The Trend Variant Of 2020 Ford Figo Petrol Worth Buying?

The Trend variant of the 2020 Figo petrol costs Rs. 6.09 lakh and is Rs. 60,000 more than the Ambiente. It adds the following notable features:

  • Music system
  • Remote central locking with alarm
  • Driver seat height adjustment
  • Body-colour door handles and mirrors
  • Steering mounted controls
  • Rear power windows
  • Power mirrors
  • Boot lamp

While the asking price is higher for the added features, it’s worth mentioning that these features are must-haves these days. So, even for budget buyers, we’d suggest you at least consider the Trend variant. The Trend variant is not a great value for money option but it’s not that overpriced either. Value conscious buyers with a bigger budget should consider a higher variant of the Figo. Let’s now see what the Titanium variant has to offer.

Which Variant Of The 2020 Ford Figo Petrol Offers The Most Value For Money?

The Titanium Blu variant is the best VFM option of the 2020 Ford Figo petrol BS6.

The Figo petrol’s Ambiente variant is reasonably priced but the lack of some must-have features keeps us from recommending this even to the budget-conscious buyers. The Trend variant covers its ground better and is suitable for budget buyers. The Titanium variant is a decent value offering and it mostly includes style-focused features. But, if you’ve come this far, then you should instead just go with the Blu and get the whole bouquet of safety, style, functional and entertainment features. It’s also the most value-for-money variant of the Figo.

What Are The Engine Specifications Of The 2020 Ford Figo Petrol?

The Figo petrol’s 1.2-litre 3-cylinder engine is the most powerful normal petrol engine with 96PS of power and 119Nm of torque. But it pales in comparison to the Polo’s turbo petrol engine, which makes a healthy 110PS of power and 175Nm of torque. Figo’s fuel efficiency figure of 18.5kmpl is nothing to brag about but it’s also not as bad as the i20 or Polo’s normal petrol engines, which are neither as powerful nor as efficient.
