Ford Offers Individual Style with trendy New Figo Blu

Ford has dis­closed a spe­cial edi­tion added to its fold, an eye-catch­ing Com­pact five-door Figo Blu hatch­back.

“We devel­oped Figo Blu for our cus­tomers.  Bold, sleek unique­ness and push­ing beyond the bound­aries,” says Doreen Mashini­ni, Gen­er­al Man­ag­er Mar­ket­ing at Ford Motor Com­pa­ny of South­ern Africa.

“The stan­dard Figo hatch­back is already a very com­pet­i­tive offer­ing in the com­pact seg­ment, but this spe­cial edi­tion mod­el allows cus­tomers to stand out from the crowd.”

A lim­it­ed pro­duc­tion run of 360 five-door dynam­ic new Figo Blu 1.5 Trend is avail­able for sale.

Figo Blu has a spe­cif­ic and unusu­al charm that makes it unique.

We can iden­ti­fy it from the stan­dard Figo through sev­er­al excit­ing styling enhance­ments.

Car­mak­er adorns Figo Blu with a black mesh grille, while they pro­vide the spe­cial treat­ment of the accent­ed fog lamp hous­ings added verve thanks to eye-catch­ing blue bezels.

Black mul­ti-spoke 15-inch alloy wheels replace the Figo Trend’s stan­dard 14-inch ver­sions.

Adding to the ath­let­ic flair, includ­ing black mir­ror hous­ings and decals that extend along the length of the low­er sec­tion of the front and rear doors.

Ford only paint the roof in black.

It pro­vides a dra­mat­ic and effec­tive con­trast to the three avail­able body colour choic­es  — Moon­dust Sil­ver, Oxford White, and Smoke Grey.

It’s four-door pan­els incor­po­rate blue gloss trim inserts.

This match­es a classy leather steer­ing wheel, blue stitch­ing for the gearshift gaiter, and the ‘Figo Blu’ logo embroi­dered on the front floor mats.

The estab­lished Figo virtues of gen­er­ous space and com­fort remain, joint with an impres­sive list of stan­dard fea­tures that ensure excep­tion­al val­ue for mon­ey.

This includes elec­tric win­dows all round, cen­tral lock­ing, perime­ter anti-theft alarm, and an immo­bilis­er.

A built-in Ford Audio unit has an inte­grat­ed dis­play and four speak­ers.

The sys­tem incor­po­rates Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­i­ty, a USB slot, and Ford’s unique Device Dock in the upper sec­tion of the cen­tre con­sole for con­nect­ing and pow­er­ing smart­phone devices.

On the safe­ty front, the car­mak­er equips the Figo with dri­ver and pas­sen­ger front airbags and ABS brakes.

As with the entire Figo range, they pow­ers the New Figo Blu by a 1.5‑litre three-cylin­der petrol engine.

This lat­est-gen­er­a­tion unit is pow­er­ful, effi­cient, clean, and uses an alu­mini­um engine block and cylin­der head for reduced weight.

It relies on twin inde­pen­dent vari­able camshaft tim­ing (TiVCT) for the four-valves-per-cylin­der engine to deliv­er low-down torque and top-end pow­er.

The fit­ment of a dual-stage vari­able oil pump fur­ther enhances effi­cien­cy, while reduc­ing fuel con­sump­tion and emis­sions.

The 1.5 TiVCT engine has a max­i­mum pow­er out­put of 88kW of pow­er at 6 300 r/min.

It peaks torque of 150Nm at 4 250 r/min for great all-around dri­ving dynam­ics, impres­sive fuel econ­o­my, and low run­ning costs.

The five-speed trans­mis­sion used on the Figo Blu has an Eco­Mode with shift indi­ca­tor.

The indi­ca­tor informs the dri­ver of the ide­al point to shift up or down a gear, there­by help­ing to fur­ther reduce fuel con­sump­tion.
