Synopsis

Ford Motor Company or simply Ford is a world renowned American multinational automobile manufacturing company with its headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan, US. The company was incorporated on June 16, 1903 after it was founded by Henry Ford and now sells commercial vehicles and passenger cars. It brought a revolution in the large scale manufacturing of cars and large scale management of an industrial workforce in its early years. It owns a Brazilian SUV manufacturing company Troller, a performance car manufacturing company FPV, a 2.1% stake in Japanese company Mazda, a 15% stake in UK's company Aston Martin and 49% stake in a Chinese company Jiagling.

It also has joint ventures in a lot of countries which includes Changan Ford Mazda and Ford Lio Ho in China, Auto Alliance Thailand in Thailand, Ford Sollers in Russia and Ford Otosan in Turkey. It is also regarded among the topmost companies of the world. It works in India through its wholly owned subsidiary, Ford India Private Limited which first began production in October 1995 and has its current headquarters in Chengalpattu, Chennai (Tamil Nadu). It has a huge manufacturing plant in Maraimalai Nagar which is 45kms from Chennai. It is also investing about $1 billion for a new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant at Sanand, Gujarat which is expected to start production by the end of 2014. It also has a good dealership and sales network in India.

Recently, FIPL unveiled a sub 4-meter sedan, Figo Concept Sedan at a conference in New Delhi on February 3, 2014. It is modelled on the Ford Ka hatchback concept which was showcased last year (2013) in Brazil and also features Ford's 'kinetic' design theory. Like EcoSport, it is built on the B2E platform and it will replace the Ford Fiesta Classic upon its launch by the mid of 2015. Ford has given it all that an automobile enthusiast craves about as it marks Ford's entry in the compact sedan segment. Its main competitors will be Amaze and Dzire as it has a similar looking stubby rear end like them. It will be manufactured at Ford's new plant in Sanand, Gujarat which will be operational soon. The compact sedan also gives a premium, refined and a dynamic feel with its stylish exterior. Now, the company has launched the production ready model in Brazil as Ka+, the sedan version of Ka hatchback. Let's check out this beautiful compact sedan in detail.

Exterior

Ford Figo Concept Sedan has got stylish and eye-catching exterior with some remarkable features which includes its wide chrome induced trapezoidal front grille with four horizontal slats, blacked-out and sweptback 3-piece headlamps with LEDs and an eye lid, stylish and body colored front bumper with curved sides, air intake and daytime running lights at its ends which will be replaced by circular fog lights in the production model, a high rising shoulder line at its sides which starts from the front fender, a small crease line that runs through on the lower sides, subtle touches of chrome all around, 8-spoke and 17-inch alloy wheels with tubeless radial tires, flexible electrically adjustable ORVMs with integrated turn indicators, glossy black painted roof, a large rear windshield with a stop light at center, boomerang shaped LED tail lights, large doors with huge area for glass, a sporty shark-fin radio antenna at the rear of the roof and rear body colored bumper with a silver diffuser. There is no word yet on its dimensions and other technical specifications.

Interior

Ford Figo Concept Sedan will certainly have a luxurious and comfortable interior with all the basic and some fresh features which are not yet disclosed by the company. But the compact sedan will have a electrically adjustable power-fold mirrors and an innovative and eye-catching device dock which can easily integrate into the in-car entertainment system to store, charge and mount devices such as MP3 players, cell phones and satellite navigation systems.

Engine and Gearbox

It will probably have an 1196cc DuraTec petrol engine with a maximum power of 70bhp at 6,250rpm and a maximum torque of 102Nm at 4,000rpm and will be mated with a five speed manual gearbox transmission.
