Ford India will offer the Figo Aspire with a 1.2-liter Ti-VCT and a 1.5-liter Ti-VCT paired exclusively to its 6-speed Powershift DCT gearbox, the most advanced in this segment. Hence, the 1.2L Aspire makes 88 PS similar to the Amaze, whereas the 1.5L model has a class-leading 112 PS of power.

Thanks to its turbocharger, the Zest makes the highest torque in this segment at 140 Nm, but even the 1.2L Aspire is up there with its competition. In the fuel efficiency department however, the Dzire continues to lead with a 20.85 km/l ARAI-rated mileage.

At 215 Nm, the Figo Aspire generates the most torque as well. All cars get a 5-speed manual transmission save for the Zest which also gets a 5-speed AMT as an option.

The Figo Aspire has outpaced the Amaze on the fuel efficiency front, with an ARAI-rated 25.83 km/l figure. However, like in the petrol segment, the Dzire continues to lead in this department with a class-leading 26.59 km/l.

    I am of the Opinion that TATA Zest is the leader in this pack.
    It has Class leading feature Package , The Interiors are way ahead of the Competition .
    What is missing is cruise control and ESP.

    Simply Superb suspension and most Important More safe than any other “TIN CANS” by the competition.

    The Stance, Poise and Majestic 21st Century looks makes it the SAMRAT of the Pack.

    333 is a great support which of the above compared cars dont offer , and now started copying by SKODA which i saw in today’s Times of India Ad.

    Iam registering Zest XTA today
    Buy a Zest for peace of mind
