Ford has introduced a minor facelift for its Fiesta-based Figo model in South Africa.
It is available with a choice of a 1.4-liter Duratec gasoline engine and a 1.4-liter turbo Duratorq diesel, with both of them connected to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The first one produces 83 hp (62 kW) and 93 lb-ft (127 Nm) of torque, providing a fuel consumption of 6.6 liters / 100 km (35.6 mpg US or 42.8 mpg UK) and CO2 emissions of 156 g/km. The diesel generates 68 hp (53 kW) and 118 lb-ft (160 Nm) and ensures a fuel consumption of 5.3 liters / 100 km (44.3 mpg US or 53.3 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 139 g/km.
The entry-level Ford Figo Ambiente model is available with both engines, while the higer-spec Trend variant can be ordered exclusively with the gasoline unit. Safety features include ABS, EBD and PATS (Passive Anti-Theft System).
Design-wise, the front bumper and hood have been mildly restyled, while the lower and upper grilles have also gone through some minor changes. The Ambiente trim level brings a new set of 8-spoke wheels, while Trend comes with a new design for the alloys.
