For young adults at varsity, we know how hard it can be to practice patience when it comes to owning the car of your dreams. And in most cases, you’re probably going to have to make peace with the fact that your first car is not going to be a Mustang!
That said, if you’re serious about your studies, you’re already on the road to success, because as a graduate in an increasingly competitive world, your tertiary education is likely to secure you a higher future income as a skilled professional. This in turn means that the shiny new set of wheels you have your heart set on now could one day be well within reach. But until then, affordability remains a huge factor in your purchasing decision.
The Ford Figo is one of the country’s best-sellers in the compact car segment and offers great value for money. Ford launched the Figo Blu in 2019, with it’s dostinctive sport package, for those who want to stand out in a crowd.
Based on the 1,5 Trend hatchback model, the Figo Blu can easily be distinguished from the standard Figo by a number of model-specific styling enhancements. Most noticeably, the exterior sports a black roof, black mesh grille, black mirror housings, and black multi-spoke 15-inch alloy wheels, with eye-catching blue accents, inside and out.
All five-door hatchback and four-door sedan models, including the Figo Blu, come with driver and passenger airbags, ABS brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), remote central locking, electric front windows with one-touch operation on the driver’s side, a factory-fitted immobiliser, electric power-assisted steering, tilt adjustment for the steering column, headlight level adjustment, a built-in Ford Audio unit with an integrated display, Bluetooth connectivity, a USB slot, and Ford’s unique Device Dock for connecting and powering smart phone devices.
All Figo models are powered by Ford’s latest-generation 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine. And all come standard with Ford Protect, comprising a four-year/120,000km comprehensive warranty, three-year/unlimited distance roadside assistance, and a five-year/unlimited km corrosion warranty. A four-year/60,000km service plan is included, with 15,000km service intervals.
