After half a year of enjoying what’s one of the most fun-to-drive mass-market cars today, the time has come to bid adieu to my Long-Term Ford Figo. I’ve loved this car for its capabilities, in terms of handling and high-speed performance. I truly believe that everyone should, at least once, drive a car with positive handling traits to truly understand the joys of driving. Its Ford’s inherently well-designed chassis, suspension, and steering setups that make its cars great to drive. And I have to say that this is one of the very few proper drivers’ cars in the sub-10 lakh price bracket.
What’s more, in this top-end spec, it even looks great with its all-black grille, roof, ORVM casings, and wheels. The black plastic inserts in the bumpers and the black stickers around the lower section of the car also add some flair to its overall appearance. Over the past few months, a lot of my friends have admired the Figo’s look, which I think goes very well with its performance-oriented nature. It goes without saying that I am going to miss this car quite a bit. Goodbye good lookin'
