Ford India will launch the 2015 Ford Figo hatchback in New Delhi today, just over a month after it introduced the Figo Aspire compact sedan. Here are 5 things we know about the second generation Ford Figo:

1. Engines carried over from the Aspire:

The 2015 Figo will be powered by the same set of engines seen on the Figo Aspire. These include a 1.2-liter Ti-VCT petrol, a 1.5-liter TDCi diesel and a 1.5-liter Ti-VCT petrol, though it remains to be seen if the power and torque figures are also identical to the Figo Aspire.

2. 6-speed Powershift confirmed:

The 2015 Ford Figo will offer the Powershift 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with the 1.5-liter Ti-VCT engine. On the Figo Aspire, this powertrain delivers an ARAI-rated fuel efficiency of 17 km/l.

3. Gets an all-black dashboard:

Where the Figo Aspire opts for a dual-tone black-and-beige dashboard, the Figo hatchback gets an all-black dashboard with silver inserts for the center console and AC vents. The seats too offer a black upholstery.

4. Features carried over from the Aspire:

5. Safety:
