Ford India is in the process of making the TV commercial of the new Figo Aspire, with a launch reported to take place in June this year. The production-ready Figo Aspire was unveiled last week during the inauguration of Ford India’s new manufacturing facility in Sanand, Gujarat.

The Figo Aspire, the brand’s first sub-4 meter sedan, will take on the hugely-popular Maruti Dzire, Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent and Tata Zest. Reports state that three engine options will be available on the new Ford.

A 1.2-liter four-cylinder TiVCT petrol engine matched to a 5-speed manual transmission will deliver about 82-85 PS, sources said. Next up is the 1.5-liter diesel engine (same unit found on the EcoSport and Fiesta) which would be retuned for “excellent” fuel efficiency. Finally, a 1.5-liter petrol engine paired to the 6-speed dual-clutch transmission would be offered for those needing an automatic transmission.

The top-end Titanium variant will be equipped with the manufacturer’s SYNC and AppLink infotainment system, while the lower variants will get a device docking station.
