The next generation Ford Figo is expected to make an official global appearance next year and initially will start its journey from Brazilian market. In India, the hatchback and the sedan are expected to land a little later because of the huge localization Ford is planning to do with the new model just like the current Figo.

When the new model launches in India, it is expected to replace the Fiesta Classic in India and the likes of Chevrolet Prisma and Hyundai HB20S in Brazil. From the pictures, the sedan based on the Figo does not look sub-4 meter at all, but then Ford might have a trick or two in its sleeve and might follow a very different strategy in India. The sub-4 meter vehicles in India enjoy special tax relaxation from government, Ford might just go ahead and launch the car with certain changes for the Indian market.
