After selling Jaguar, Volvo and Aston Martin, Ford could focus – pardon the pun – on its own cars. That certainly paid off and gave us the new Mustang, the new Everest and the soon-to-be-released Ford GT supercar. But Ford also needed something affordable for the masses, something cheaper than the Fiesta, which had gone up-market. The answer came in the previous-gen Fiesta, which was renamed Figo, built in India and sold for a little over R100 000 when introduced. When Ford contemplated its replacement, it came up with an entirely new Indian-built Figo. I drove the turbodiesel version.
