The 2016 Ford Figo is the vehicle that did wonders for car manufacturer Ford. The previous model of the Figo showed healthy sales figures around the world. The 2016 model will come with a facelift that is modern and sophisticated. The car is mainly targeted for developing markets like India and Brazil. In Brazil the Figo is known as the Ford Ka.

The body will have a smooth finish that showcases aerodynamic lines, giving the Figo an edge. It will be longer and wider than the outgoing model.
