Ford Figo Sports and Aspire Sports launched in India at INR 6.32 Lakhs
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Both are available with a 1.2L Ti-VCT petrol engine and 1.5L TDCi diesel motor.
Ford India has launched new ‘Sports’ variants of the Ford Figo and Ford Aspire today, which are based on the Titanium grade. Prices for the Figo Sports range between INR 6.32 Lakhs – INR 7.21 Lakhs, while the Aspire Sports is priced between INR 6.51 Lakhs – INR 7.60 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).
The exterior of the Figo Sports features a gloss black mesh grille, gloss black foglamp bezels, 15 inch black alloy rims, black ORVM caps, a decal across the side profile and rear bumper, gloss black roof and a roof spoiler. The Figo Sports can be had in five colours: Ruby Red, Sparkling Gold, Oxford White, Tuxedo Black, and Ingot Silver.
The Aspire Sports gets fewer changes. Instead of the Figo Sport’s mesh grille, the Aspire has the regular grille design with black slats and 15 dual 5-spoke silver alloy rims. It shares the decal across the side with ‘S’ branding, and the black headlight detailing with its hatchback sibling. Inside, the Figo Sports and Aspire Sports have red and fog grey contrast stitching, respectively. The steering wheel is also leather-wrapped and has contrasting coloured seams.
The available engine options in both models include a 1.2-liter Ti-VCT petrol and a 1.5-liter Ti-VCT petrol, both paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. To enhance the sporty character, Ford has also tuned the suspension to firmer setting.
