2019 Ford Figo vs Maruti Suzuki Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10: Spec Comparison

By autoX Editorial | on March 22, 2019

With Maruti Suzuki bringing in the new-generation Swift last year, and Hyundai updating the Grand i10 in 2017, the Ford Figo was showing its age – especially with regards to the features and equipment. With this face-lift, the American car maker has addressed the need and added some more changes that make the Figo a lot more relevant. In fact, unlike most face-lifts, this one also comes with a new powerplant – albeit just in the petrol trim. Here’s a look at how the refreshed Figo stands against its competitors.

Engine:

Just like before, Ford has the Figo on sale with three engine options – two petrol offerings and one diesel. Ford’s 1.2-litre petrol motor makes the maximum power and torque of the cars in the discussion. It develops 95bhp and 120Nm, both of which come marginally higher in the rev range than the Swift and the Grand i10. Ford’s 1.2 petrol only comes paired with a manual transmission. If you want something more powerful, Ford also offers the 121bhp 1.5-litre petrol motor in the Figo. This engine, however, is only on sale with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Swift and the Grand i10 are on sale with just one petrol and one diesel engine. In the gasoline trim, both cars make more or less the same power and torque. Both these cars also get a 5-speed manual transmission. It’s the automatic variants that set the two apart – while the Swift gets a 5-speed AMT, the Grand i10 comes paired with a 4-speed AT.
