The Figo Aspire (Click here for our review of the Ford Figo Aspire) will be replacing the Classic and the current gen Figo will be replaced by the upcoming new gen Figo hatchback slated to be launched in around a month.
As already stated, the Figo will be replaced by the new-gen model and hence has been discontinued. The reason for discontinuation of the Classic and Fiesta has to do with the abysmally low sales figures for quite a few months. According to recent reports, the rumor stating that the current gen Figo could be dubbed Figo Classic and continue to be sold have also been squashed.
