The new hatchback forms part of a new model assault by Ford SA as the automaker is set to spruce its most of its local line-up.

While the Raptor bakkie certainly is exciting news, Ford SA announced three new models will be launched during the second quarter of 2018. 

Both the EcoSport and Fiesta were revealed globally earlier in 2017, however information (and images) of its new Figo are still under wraps.

Other models set to arrive locally is the new Focus (Q4) and an expanded Kuga range (Q3). 

Wheels24's Janine Van der Post will also be driving the all-new Focus later in July at the international launch in France. The Focus will be launched locally in Q4.
