The Newly Updated Ford Figo

The Newly Updated Ford Figo

The updated Ford Figo has received some exterior design enhancements which take on Ford’s Kinetic design elements, and added interior features including the addition of Bluetooth connectivity on some models.

According to Gavin Golightly, Ford Marketing Manager, the updated Ford Figo “is well-positioned as a value-for-money prospect and with the addition of some new enhancements its overall appeal is further cemented.”

The Ford Figo is available with a choice of two fuel-efficient engines, the 1.4l Petrol Duratec and the 1.4l Turbo diesel Duratorq, both of which are mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

The 1.4l Petrol Duratec has a maximum power output of 62kW @ 6000rpm and enjoys 127Nm of torque at 4000rpm. This leads to a claimed frugal fuel consumption figure of 6.6l/100km and 156g/km CO2 emissions on the combined cycle according to the New European Driving Cycle.

The 1.4l Turbo Diesel Duratorq is just as impressive sporting 51kW @ 4000rpm and reaching its maximum torque peak of 160Nm at just 2000rpm. It uses just 5.3l/100km and 139g/km of CO2 emissions on the combined cycle as measured by the New European Driving Cycle.

Customers can choose between two trim levels, the Ambiente being the entry level option available in both petrol and diesel guise and the Trend, the high spec model, available in petrol configuration.

Both the Ford Figo Ambiente and the Trend further incorporate Ford’s global Kinetic design DNA with new design elements incorporate into the bonnet and bumper. The lower grille has been revised with the upper grille benefiting from the addition of a chrome line. The head and tail lamp designs have also been revised while the fog lamp housing features a more aggressive and defined look.

The Ambiente model has been further enhanced with the addition of a new eight-spoke wheel design while the Trend model receives a new alloy wheel design.

The Ford  Figo’s In Car Entertainment system allows one to switch between radio, CD/MP3 or one’s iPod easily and with added versatility thanks to the addition of Bluetooth functionality.

The Bluetooth system allows you to connect a mobile phone to the audio system and therefore connect and disconnect calls through the system. It also allows for the connection or rejection of a second incoming call. Caller ID is displayed on the vehicle’s display and phonebook contacts and call history can be synchronised with the audio system.

Needless to say the Ford Figo has no shortage of safety features with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and PATS (Passive Anti-Theft System) providing a piece of mind driving experience.

The Ford Figo comes with a 4-year/120000km warranty and 5-year corrosion warranty. Service intervals are 20000km for petrol derivatives and 15000km for diesel.
