A few weeks ago, Ford India launched the 2019 Ford Figo Facelift in India. Like its Freestyle sibling, the response has been very positive. As the name states, Figo gets a cosmetic “facelift” making the already appealing car, even more beautiful.
We were expecting to see the 2019 Ford Figo Facelift launch in Nepal soon. But we are definitely surprise to see it so soon. Moreover, Ford Nepal was already leaving bread crumbs, hinting on Figo’s inevitable launch in Nepal. Guess the day has finally come!
