The Figo Aspire will be joined by the next generation Figo hatchback at the Sanand plant later in the year.

Available with petrol and diesel engines, the former offering a choice of a 6-speed Powershift dual-clutch AT or a 5-speed MT, the Figo Aspire is also the first product to roll out of Ford India’s Sanand manufacturing facility in the state of Gujarat.

Ford has also done well to offer dual front airbags as standard on the Figo Aspire, while the top-end variant gets a segment first 6 airbags, which include side and curtain airbags. Ford’s proprietary SYNC multimedia system with Bluetooth and voice commands is also to be seen, as is a MyKey feature which allows the owner to program the car when lending it to someone.
