Ford Figo Aspire launched at Rs 4.89 lakh

12th Aug 2015 1:24 pm

The Figo Aspire offers three engine options across four trim levels; equipped with a few segment firsts.

Ford has launched the Ford Figo Aspire compact sedan with prices starting from Rs 4.89 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the petrol, Rs 5.89 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the diesel and Rs 7.79 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the petrol automatic.

The Aspire is available in four trim levels — Ambiente, Trend, Titanium and Titanium+. The Ambiente trim is rather sparsely equipped, but the biggest talking point here is the inclusion of dual front airbags. Standard features include air-conditioning, power steering, front power windows, remote locking and black plastic body panels like door handles and wing mirror covers. The Trend trim gets the addition of MyFord Dock, steering-mounted controls, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, electric-adjust wing mirrors and front fog lamps. In addition to the features from the Trend trim, the Titanium trim also gets exterior chrome detailing, ABS, height-adjustable driver seat, climate control and alloy wheels. The top-spec Titanium+ gets Ford’s SYNC infotainment system, a CD/MP3 player, Ford’s MyKey, six airbags and leather seats (the latter two features being segment firsts).

Ford offers the Aspire with three engine options – a 1.2-litre petrol available on all trim levels, a 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine also available on all trim levels and a 1.5-litre petrol only available on the Titanium trim level. The smaller petrol unit generates 86.8bhp and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The 1.5-litre diesel is a more powerful version of the units in the EcoSport and Fiesta and is rated at 98.6bhp, also mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The 1.5-litre petrol unit develops 110.5bhp and is mated to a segment-first six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox as standard.

The Ford Figo Aspire enters the highly competitive compact sedan segment and will rival the likes of the Maruti Dzire, Hyundai Xcent, Tata Zest and Honda Amaze.
