It offers trend-setting technologies, smart design and surprising levels of space and comfort. Ford aims with the new Figo Hatch and Sedan to raise the bar in the compact car class while retaining this model’s established reputation for exceptional value and efficiency.
The all-new Figo is characterised by its striking, elegant design with eye-catching styling which is derived from Ford’s Kinetic 2.0 design language, as seen on the latest Ford Fusion and Focus models.
The sophisticated and stylish exterior of the all-new Figo is matched by a modern interior that delivers an extraordinary experience for a compact car. Intelligent and careful space management creates a surprisingly roomy cabin emphasizing quality, comfort and convenience. Ample legroom gives the front passenger space to stretch out, while enabling even taller drivers to achieve the ideal driving position.
MyFord Dock®, a first-in-class feature and standard in the Ambiente and Trend spec vehicles, offers drivers a unique solution for storing, mounting and charging mobile phones, MP3 players and satellite navigation systems, and for integrating these devices into the car’s entertainment system. When not in use, the dock can be closed out of sight.
Consumers seeking even greater technological integration will benefit from the fitment of SYNC®, Ford’s advanced in-car connectivity system, as standard equipment on the Figo Titanium.
On the Ambiente and Trend models, a standard four-speaker audio system is provided that includes a radio/CD unit with MP3\\ compatibility, Bluetooth connectivity, as well as USB and Aux inputs. The Titanium further gains remote audio controls on the steering wheel. The all-new Figo Titanium features six airbags, including side and curtain airbags, for an outstanding level of protection.
All the models are equipped with ABS brakes, while the all-new Figo Titanium PowerShift Auto incorporates Electronic Stability Program (ESP) with Hill Launch Assist that holds the vehicle for up to three seconds as the driver’s foot moves from the brake to the accelerator.
This performance is made possible by the Electronic Power Assisted Steering (EPAS), which provides a lighter steering effort at low speeds, for parking and in-city manoeuvring, and heavier, more precise feel at high speeds for greater stability and confidence on highways.
The new Figo is available with two engines, including a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol option. This unit generates 82kW of power, matched to 136Nm of torque. It delivers a combined cycle fuel consumption of 5.6l per 100km.
The diesel models are powered by a 1.5-litre Duratorq TDCi engine that develops 74kW and 215Nm of torque. Tuned to provide peak torque at just 1 750rpm, this engine is designed for responsive performance matched to frugal consumption, as confirmed by Ford with an average fuel consumption rating of 4.1l per 100km.
The manual derivatives feature a five-speed gearbox, while Ford’s advanced six-speed PowerShift Auto transmission is available on the 1.5 Titanium, in both hatchback and sedan guises. The PowerShift dual-clutch system combines the performance and efficiency of a manual transmission with the convenience of an automatic.
