Greetings !!

See, Ford India to introduce in Figo Automatic in 1.2 Litre Dragon Series Petrol Engine as what powering in Manual Transmission
Earlier in BS4 regime - Figo Automatic was available in 1.5 Litre Engine, as what was available in Ecosport and trust all recommendation of ours was in that favor, but this 1.2 Litre Engine
> Lacks Balancer shaft, unlike 1.5 Litre engine which was having
> this Engine Performance is linear and not as torquey or powerful as otherwise was in 1.5 Litre one

But you may well be surprised that Figo 1.2 Automatic if introduced in Titanium Model in 2020, would likely cost in same as what it was in 1.5 Litre BS4 Engine a year back

See Point is in favor of Baleno
> Baleno CVT has lowest rubberband effect among CVT Cars
> Maruti 1.2 Engine is more lively and torquey as against what felt in Ford 1.2 Engine
> Baleno is more spacious against Figo
> Yes due to CVT expect better fuel efficiency against cars with Torque converter

Ford Figo Automatic when launched have advantage of
> Additional ESP, Hill Hold Assist as key differential
> Ford has relative better handling as against Maruti
> Scored 4 Star in Latin NCAP- although structure marked unstable.
> Been Torque converter, if slight be hard in throttle and as would likely be having paddle shifters - can be slight more fun in mid range

so key differential to USP of Ford would be
> Relative better handling
> Relative better Safety
> Slight more fun in mid range

Rest - more details about Figo Automatic drive response and other details can only tell when the car would be launched
But important to have preference set.
> If seek Space, a car for majorly city drive and good highway roads, better mileage - Maruti Baleno CVT
> If seek add on safety, better steering feedback on higher speed, paddle shifter for fun in Torque converter - Figo Automatic

Hope should help !!
