Ford India on Friday launched the 2019 edition of its hatchback Figo with a starting price of Rs 5.15 lakh, reducing prices by up to Rs 73,700 depending upon the variant.

Recently, Ford also launched the 2019 edition of its premium SUV Endeavour with price starting at Rs 28.19 lakh. With this version, the company has introduced six-speed manual transmission mated with the 2.2 litre diesel engine, Ford India said in a statement.
