It’s been over two months since we’ve been under lockdown. So now I’m definitely missing the open roads, even though I’ve been to office for the past week. It’s definitely a different experience now on our city roads with minimum traffic, making our urban drives as pleasant as they should be.
After a few days of cruising on sparsely used roads, I can’t help but reminisce about the time I went on a road trip in the Figo. Oh, what I wouldn’t give to go on a trip to the hills right now! I really enjoyed the Figo’s willing 100bhp engine on highways, but I couldn’t mention in that long-term report, owing to the word limitation, about the Figo’s braking performance. The whole braking system has been set up to perfection.
Not only do the brakes have enough bite but also to offer great feel, giving you phenomenal confidence at high speeds. Once, while I was overtaking a truck, it pulled into my lane without warning. But I wasn’t unsettled at all! As I slammed the brakes, the car slowed down immediately without any drama. The ABS system is just so well calibrated that it offers impeccable assistance without creating any kind of unsettling disturbance in braking performance or through the pedal. It’s simply superb!
