The current Figo and Aspire offer a SYNC 1 infotainment system in the top-end Titanium+ trim, which comprises of a small non-touchscreen display with Voice commands. It’s unclear if the rumored touchscreen system will be the SYNC 2 system from the 2016 Ford Endeavour or sourced from another OEM.

The inclusion of a touchscreen system will require a total redesign of the center console, which could borrow design cues from the Ford C-Max or Ford Focus (both not sold in India).
