Next up is a 1.5-liter TiVCT petrol developing 112 PS and 136 Nm of torque, paired exclusively to a 6-speed dual-clutch Powershift automatic transmission. The Figo Aspire AT is available in a single Titanium variant only priced at NPR 34.9 lakhs. It has an ARAI-rated fuel efficiency of 17 km/l.
The 1.5-liter TDCi diesel churns out 100 PS and 215 Nm of torque and has a fuel efficiency of 25.83 km/l. Available only with a 5-speed manual gearbox, the diesel range encompasses four trim levels, similar to the petrol, with prices ranging from 27.9 lakhs to 38.9 lakhs NPR (INR 17.46 lakhs to INR 24.35 lakhs).
