Which is a better car to choose between Ford Figo Trend and Maruti Celerio LXi automatic?
By: Prasad on 9 august 2016
Maruti Celerio is an entry level hatchback whereas Ford Figo is a notch higher. So your first difference comes here. Next; the Figo has a manual transmission on board for its Trend variant while there is an Automatic Transmission engine in the Maruti Celerio ZXi. The automatic transmission makes life a lot easier on the Indian roads as it saves one from the hassle of frequently pressing clutch and gear shifts but at the same time there are some who would prefer manual transmission engine because the gear shifting gives the driver the control of the rpm etc. which ensures a better feel while driving.
Ford Figo delivers a mileage of 14.68 kmpl in the city and 18.16 kmpl on the highways with a power of 86.8 bhp at 6300 rpm whereas Maruti Celerio delivers a mileage of 19.0 kmpl in the city and 23.1 kmpl on the highways with a power of 67.07 at 6000 rpm. Celerio has a lesser ground clearance of 165 mm when compared with the ground clearance of the Figo which is 174mm. Feature wise both these vehicles are well equipped like power windows, central locking, dual frontal airbags, ABS, Engine immobilizer and keyless entry. However, in terms of comfort, Figo is slightly more comfortable than Celerio.
In my opinion you should test drive both and then take an informed decision basis your preferences. In my opinion, I would pick the Figo only for the comfort that it offers as compared to Celerio while latter would be my choice if I consider running and maintaining costs.
