2013 Ford Figo gets a facelift in South Africa

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 15, 2012

Ford has made its Figo model even more appealing, fun and stylish by giving it some exterior design improvements and additional interior features such as the use of Bluetooth connectivity in several models. Based on the successful Ford global small car architecture, the Figo is offered with any of two fuel-efficient engines: the 1.4-liter Petrol Duratec and the 1.4-liter Turbo Diesel Duratorq.

These two engines are mated to five-speed manual transmissions. There are two trim levels available. The entry level option is the Ambiente, which is offered in both petrol and diesel versions. The high spec model is the Trend, which comes with a petrol configuration. The Ambiente and the Trend also make use of Ford’s global Kinetic design DNA, featuring new design elements that are integrated into the bumper as well as the bonnet.

Ford modified its lower grille. Meanwhile, the upper grille will get a chrome line. Changes were also made to the designs of the head and tail lamp. The fog lamp housing now has a look that’s bolder and more defined. Enhancing the Ambiente model further is the use of a new eight-spoke wheel design while the Trend model gets a fresh alloy wheel design. The interior of the Ambiente gets a Dynamic Blue centre stack bezel and its seat fabric pattern has been modified.

In addition, the Trend’s interior received improvements such as a change from red to blue seat fabric and the use of Bluetooth. The 1.4-liter Petrol Duratec could deliver up to 62kW @ 6000rpm and is capable of 127Nm of torque at 4000rpm.

This results to an efficient fuel rating of 6.6/100km on the combined cycle, according to data from the New European Driving Cycle. It has CO2 emissions of 156g/km. The 1.4-liter Turbo Diesel Duratorq is also remarkable, delivering 51kW @ 4000rpm and hitting a maximum torque peak of 160Nm at only 2000rpm. Under the New European Driving Cycle, it returns just 5.3/100km on the combined cycle. It has CO2 emissions of 139g/km of CO2.
