The Ford Figo shares all the same strengths as the manufacturer’s other popular compact hatchbacks to make it great fun to drive in the city. The model seats five in comfort and with a raft of convenience features in the cabin every journey becomes much easier and more enjoyable.
The Figo’s modern styling makes it an appealing choice for motorists who want their car to look as good as it performs. The large headlamps and wide lower grille catch the attention of other road users and these strong features are enhanced by the Figo’s flared wheel arches and folded body panels. Body-colored front and rear bumpers come as standard alongside tinted windows for added comfort.
The hatchback’s cabin offers more luxury and sophistication than its price tag may suggest. The standard cloth upholstery feels durable enough to withstand constant everyday use and on the dash there are materials with an equally premium feel. Meanwhile the dashboard and center console arrangement is simple and intuitive for a more user-friendly experience. The model holds up to four passengers plus a maximum of 284 liters of luggage in the trunk but you can fold the rear bench flat to create a 947-liter load bed.
Ford has fitted high levels of technology and equipment across the Figo range so that you can choose the finish that meets your needs exactly. At the top of the range is a radio/CD player featuring auxiliary audio input. All versions include air conditioning to keep the cabin at the optimum temperature whatever the weather and a 12-volt accessory socket that charges devices as you drive. There are also numerous practical convenience features in all versions including a center console cup holder, adjustable steering wheel and removable package tray.
You have a choice of two engine and transmission set ups with the Figo to match the car’s output to your preferred driving style. Ford’s 1.4-litre petrol engine is paired with a manual gearbox to put you in complete control of gear changes for the most engaging ride. A larger 1.6-litre petrol with automatic transmission is the alternative option and this arrangement delivers power instantly while also shifting through the gears smoothly. The addition of power-assisted steering in all Figo models makes parking in the tightest spaces or weaving through narrow city streets an effortless task.
As well as providing an enjoyable drive the Figo gives you peace of mind through its various safety systems and features. The Figo Trend’s Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) engages when you need to stop sharply, preventing skidding and keeping you in control. Accidents are unlikely but if one were to happen you and your front passenger are protected well by airbags and all are held securely by three-point safety belts.
