Ford South Africa has expanded its Figo portfolio and the newcomer brings some offroad ability and crossover styling to the segment. Here are specifications and pricing of the Ford Figo Freestyle.
At first glance, the Ford Figo Freestyle looks quite rugged and capable. Given the market's love for SUVs, it's clear that customers are after the SUV lifestyle, but don't necessarily have the money. The answer is the compact crossover, a popular segment in the market. Think of things like the Volkswagen Polo Vivo Maxx, Toyota Etios Cross and the Renault Sandero Stepway.
There are two models on offer, with a shared engine. The motor on duty is the 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine and it delivers 91 kW and 150 Nm. Power reaches the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox. There's a 42-litre fuel tank and the claimed fuel economy sits at 5.5 L/100 km. In terms of performance, it has a top speed of 175 kph and a 0-100 kph claimed time of 11.8 seconds.
