American auto major, Ford has revealed the India made Ford Figo and Aspire facelift models in South Africa. Ford offered a preview of the updated Figo hatchback in February this year, when it unveiled the Ka+ facelift in the European market. However, Ford has revealed sedan version of the car for the very first time. The South Africa version of the Ford Aspire is slightly different than the India-spec model, as it is longer while India will be getting the same sub-4 meter version in order to avail tax benefits. Nevertheless, the South Africa-spec and the India-spec models should look very similar just like the pre-facelift versions.
When the styling updates are concerned, the new refreshed Ford Figo compact hatchback gets an updated front fascia that looks similar to that of the new Ford Freestyle, which is essentially the crosshatch version of the Figo. And, the new refreshed Aspire subcompact sedan gets a face that is identical to its hatchback twin, just like the outgoing model.
The South African version of the Figo that has been revealed is a mid-spec Trend model trim. The Figo hatch is not offered for sale in the top of the range Titanium variants in South Africa, and also lacks some premium as well as safety equipments that the European-spec model offers.
