The Ford Figo Aspire is due to launch in India next month, and Ford India have started campaigns to promote the car and get the word out to buyers. The car maker is also showcasing the Figo Aspire at various shopping malls in the country for prospective buyers to touch and feel the compact sedan.
RushLane has obtained a promotional brochure of the Figo Aspire which confirms the engine options and a few main features of the Dzire rival.
As reported earlier, the Figo Aspire will get a 1.2-liter TiVCT petrol engine and a 1.5-liter TDCi diesel engine. Additionally, a 1.5-liter petrol matched to Ford’s 6-speed dual-clutch PowerShift transmission will also be on offer. The ARAI-rated fuel efficiencies of these engines, or even their power and torque outputs are yet to be disclosed.
The Figo Aspire will get an alarm system and a Ford MyKey through which the owner can set a restricted driving mode (he/she can regulate the top-speed and audio volume of the car). The top-end variant of the Figo Aspire will get Ford’s SYNC multimedia system with AppLink and Bluetooth connectivity, whereas other variants will get a docking station for mobile phones/MP3 players/navigation system.
