Should be a big seller in SA but it just looks rather pricey this time round...

My choice? An excellent condition 2nd hand top line EcoBoost Fiesta

A lot of car makers are now copying that Aston style grill.
if its sexy why not?
that front look has always been the thing that has made me like the figo more than the Fiesta.(no offence intended OP, talking about the car not you :D)

but it still has the same problem. that 4 wheels rather than 2 thing, the no lane splitting laws.
I will stick to 2 wheels thank you. but the SO might like this one, she was looking at Ford to replace her current car....

Pricing on this car is terrible.

I agree a fiesta is a better buy.

I watched a review on the new ford figo and apparently the steering wheel feedback isnt the norm that you expect from a ford. The figo's steering wheel feels numb and doesnt provide the driver with enough feedback.

Yeah man no Cruze...its pretty much the same dash used in all recent Ford products bar the Fusion.

Think Fiesta; Focus; B-Max; Transit etc.

@ Mr Arrow rather my original post bud.

A lot less scrolling...

The Figo will still sell well - front end looking really good,

BUT, be quick and rather buy a Fiesta Ambiente for R167k which has 2yrs longer service plan: FIESTA PROMO.JPG

Even if you intend buying for cash, do the finance with Ford Credit (to get the special price), pay an installment and then settle the deal. R30k saving just like that and you get the full SYNC system!

That looks like a good buy but you can purchase a year old 1.0 ecoboost auto for minimum R170 000.

The value of ecoboost will be worth more than the 1.4 in the long term.

Good tip & good deal considering RRP of this model:

R206 000 for a Figo?:wtf:

I payed R220 000 for my titanium Fiesta last year!

WTF Ford?
Rand Dollar to blame. Paid R400k for a Ranger XLT January 2014 - now R467k (17% increase in 18 months) and they are made locally

Imported products much harder hit

Turbos and long term? Guess it depends on what your long term is... 5 vs 10 years?

Crazy expensive, but the lower spec models will compete with the Vivo i guess. I'd rather bite the bullet and buy the real deal, the Fiesta, oh wait, already did :D
