Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Expected to launch next month.

Ford India has released a dozen images of the forthcoming Figo Aspire compact sedan, which is expected to go on sale next month. This is the first time Ford is releasing interior images of the car, as the Figo Aspire showcased at the Sanand plant inauguration had its doors locked.

On lower variants, Ford will offer a device docking station instead of the SYNC system.

The dashboard seems borrowed from modern day Fords like the EcoSport and Fiesta with the high-set SYNC multimedia system. The buttons on the center console are no doubt shared with Ford’s other products, as are the door handles, steering wheel and power window switches.

The lower part of the center console features the controls for the automatic climate control system, or the manual AC knobs in case of the base variant. Ford has also released an image of the 6-speed PowerShift (dual-clutch in Ford’s language) transmission, which will be exclusive to the petrol version.

The diesel, which will be a 1.5-liter unit, will come paired to a 5-speed manual transmission, as will the 1.2-liter petrol engine. The PowerShift would be available solely on the 1.5-liter petrol engine, according to reports.

When it launches next month, the Figo Aspire will be the only car in its class to offer side and curtain airbags in addition to dual front airbags, ABS and EBD.

Rivals: Maruti Dzire, Honda Amaze, Tata Zest, Hyundai Xcent
Expected Price: INR 5.5-7 lakhs, ex-Showroom
Tentative Launch Date: June 2015
