Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Could be introduced in a future MY update.

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).

In entry-level segments, offering a touchscreen system in top-end grades seems to garner positive attention from car buyers. An instance is the Renault Kwid RxT; priced from INR 3.67 Lakhs (ex-showroom), it offers a 7 inch touchscreen display with navigation and bluetooth connectivity, and constitutes a majority of the overall bookings.
