If there is segment that has been evergreen and ever flourishing, it can be rightly said that it is the hatchback segment. The increasing number of car choices that are available would probably bring more confusion among car buyers. However, at the same time it provides the luxury of choices that was not available about a decade ago.

Figo has been the front runner for Ford in the small car segment and is expected to be replaced soon. We compare it with the Celerio which is perhaps the best entry level diesel hatchback in the market.

The specification sheet has been prepared by comparing Ford Figo Duratorq Titanium with the Maruti Suzuki Celerio ZDi(O) and Ford Figo Duratec Titanium with the Maruti Suzuki Celerio ZXi(O).

Maruti Suzuki Celerio Vs Ford Figo (Design and Exteriors)

The Figo has been in the market for a very long time and has undergone many changes over the years. The car features huge headlamps at the front and a large hexagonal grille at the font. On the sides, you would notice huge wheel arches that give the car a muscular stance. There are tall taillights at the back that go very well with the overall styling of the car. Overall, the car is very compact and perhaps is a close comparison to Alto 800 or Alto K10 in terms of size.

The Celerio has comparatively large dimensions. The car has large swept back headlights at the front and two slat chrome grille. The car has somewhat tall stance and should accommodate easy ingress and egress. From the sides too, the car looks great how it isn’t a muscular looking car. However, it is the rear of the car that disappoints the most and does not looks as great as the rest of the car.

Maruti Suzuki Celerio Vs Ford Figo (Interiors and Features)

The top variant of the Ford Figo comes equipped with features like air-conditioning with heater, power steering, Radio/CD/MP3 player with USB, aux-in, Bluetooth support and four speakers, SMS notification, rear defogger with auto cut-off, electrically adjustable ORVMs, tilt adjust steering, electric boot release, driver seat height adjust, front two power windows etc. The car also has very capacious boot (284 litres).

The top variant of the Celerio – ZXi and ZDi on the other hand offers manual air-conditioner with heater, four power windows, Radio/CD/MP3 player with USB, aux-in and Bluetooth support, central door locking, fuel-lid opener, cup holders, ticket holders, sun-visors etc, height adjustable driver seat. The car is spacious and can comfortably seat five passengers without any issues. Perhaps, the only downside is that the seats do not have adjustable headrests.   

Maruti Suzuki Celerio Vs Ford Figo (Engine, Transmission and Gearbox)

Maruti offers Celerio with two engine choices – 0.8 litre diesel and 1litre petrol. The petrol engine has three cylinders while the diesel motor uses a two cylinder construction. Both the engines come coupled with five speed transmission. The petrol variant comes with a five speed AMT gearbox and a manual transmission which the diesel does not. The petrol motor is capable of producing a maximum power of 68 PS at 6000rpm and a peak torque of 90Nm at 3500rpm while the diesel motor puts out 47.6 PS of power at 3500rpm and peak torque of 125Nm at 2000rpm.

The Ford Figo comes with petrol as well as a diesel engine option. However, there is no option of automatic. The 1.2 litre Duratec petrol engine produces a peak power of 70.03bhp at 6250rpm and a maximum torque of 102Nm at 4000rpm and the 1.4 litre Duratorq diesel engine produces 68.05bhp at 4000rpm and impressive peak torque of 160Nm at 2000rpm. Both the engines are coupled with a 5-speed gearbox.

Maruti Suzuki Celerio Vs Ford Figo (Mileage and Safety)

Perhaps the one area where Ford Figo disappoints mostly is the mileage. The car has a tough built and as a result high kerb weight too. The petrol variant promises to delivers a mileage of 12.3kmpl in the city and 15.6kmpl on the highways. In terms of safety though, the car is very well equipped, the top variant comes equipped with airbags, PATS (Passive Anti-Theft system), programmable keyless entry, ABS with EBD, rear washer and wiper, front fog lamps, seat belts for four passengers and two point belt for the rear middle passenger. You would not get any parking assistance features on even the top variant of the car.   

The Celerio on the other hand delivers an impressive mileage figures. The diesel variant of the car promises to deliver a mileage of 27.6kmpl. Whereas the petrol variant promises to deliver 23.1kmpl with the manual as well as the AMT gearbox. In terms of safety, you get two airbags and ABS system, rear window washer and wiper, immobilizer, high mounted stop lamp, child safety locks etc.

Verdict

The Figo is perhaps one of the best driver’s car in its segment. Since the car is set to get replaced soon, you can avail huge benefits too on the new car. But the very fact that it might be replaced soon does not make it a worthy buy. Go ahead with the Celerio, car offers you a mileage that is unbeatable. Maruti’s service backup and the option of automatic variant are two other strong reasons to buy the Celerio.
