Ford's new budget world car, the Figo, has been confirmed for local introduction after the carmaker unveiled the vehicle on Wednesday.
A spokesperson for Ford Motor Company South Africa has told Wheels24 that the Figo will be launched here as the company's entry-level model range.
The Figo, which will be produced in India, is based on the previous-generation Fiesta. It will rival budget hatchbacks such as the Renault Sandero, Suzuki Alto and Hyundai i10.
Ford hasn't provided any engine details yet for the Figo.
