Ford Figo AT vs Maruti Suzuki Swift AMT vs Hyundai Grand i10 Nios AMT: Spec comparo

By Aditya Jadhav | on July 30, 2021

The Ford Figo petrol automatic has made a comeback. This time it gets a smaller power plant and a true blue torque convertor automatic gearbox on offer. Let’s find out where does it stand in the segment.

Ford has re-entered its Figo in the small automatic hatchback race. This space is dominated by Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, so we put the three B-segment hatchbacks one against another on paper to compare their offerings.

Before we begin the comparo, we would like to bring to your notice that the Nios is the only hatchback that gets a diesel-automatic variant, that the Swift and the Figo miss out on. However, to keep the comparison even we shall consider the petrol-automatic models of all the three said hatchbacks.

Maruti Suzuki Swift

Drivetrain

A 1.2-litre petrol motor is common between the three. The Nios and the Swift get a four-cylinder layout, and the Figo has a more compact three-cylinder layout. Between the three, Ford Figo uses a torque convertor automatic whereas the other two come equipped with an AMT. The Ford Figo is the most powerful hatchback in comparison and the Swift is just shy of 6bhp to match the Figo’s power output.
