Ford has shown its new Figo city car in India this week, replacing the Australian-developed and Fiesta-based original.

But unlike the outgoing Figo, this new model will be available in both sedan and hatch form, with the five-door model appearing late last year as the new Ka.

For now, both the Ka hatch and Figo sedan are described as concepts, although there are likely to be very few changes before production begins.

The new Figo and Ka sub-light or ‘city car’ models will slot into Ford’s global line-up beneath the light Fiesta range, focusing on affordability and manoeuvrability in urban spaces.

Among the new Ford models’ rivals are Nissan’s Datsun offshoot, Maruti Suzuki’s Alto/A-Star, Hyundai’s i10 and - revealed today - the Tata Zest and Bolt.

Like its predecessor, the new Figo will focus - at least initially - on emerging markets, although European and Australian launches could eventually occur.

As for Australia, Ford's local arm confirmed in 2011 that it was investigating options for bringing the Figo’s eventual replacement to the local market.

"It's on our radar and we're keenly aware of what our competitors are doing in the 'ultra-light' class, particularly given that the sub-$12,000 to $13,000 segment now seems to have ignited interest in Australia," Ford Australia’s Neil McDonald told TMR in 2011.

In Australia, the Ka would take on the likes of Suzuki’s Alto, Volkswagen’s little Up and the Holden Barina Spark.
