The Ford Figo receives a much need facelift
Last Updated: 09 October 2018
The foundation of the Figo was based on that of the Fiesta and the Aston Martin inspired grille brings a fresh look to the Ford lineup. That said, the Figo is not as well equipped with features like other Ford models, placing the Figo in the budget B-segment. Despite this, the performance is better than that of its competitors, offering a welcome 82kW of power and a fuel consumption of only 5.9 litres per 100km.

The latest incarnation of the Figo is now equipped with a 6.5-inch touchscreen featuring Ford's SYNC3 infotainment system. The dash and and centre stack are less cluttered thanks to the reduction of buttons. The facelift has also received a minor increase in size, but only a few millimeters. Ford have included a docking station in the flip-up dash-top storage compartment. This is a welcomed addition since many people now use their cellphones for music and navigation.
There illumination in the Figo is a little sparse with several buttons lacking any sort of back lighting when things get dark, leaving you frustrated if you ever need to use them at night. Ford claims the Figo can fit 5 people, but realistically you'll only fit 4 if you want to be comfortable. The suspension is more soft and forgiving over the previous generation. As a result, there's more noticeable body roll when cornering.
Ford has done a great job with the facelift. It may not be top of the line and some improvements could make it exceptional, but it's got what it needs to be a competitor in its segment.
