CNBC-TV18 OVERDRIVE Awards 2016: Ford Figo Aspire is Compact Car of the Year

09 Dec 2015 / 0

Ford India has made a strong return statement with the new Figo Aspire. It may be Ford’s first compact sedan, but it has widely been rated a segment best. It runs a strong and surprisingly efficient 1.5-litre diesel engine that makes a good 100PS of power and 215Nm of torque and is also offered with the choice of a dual-clutch automatic on the petrol engine.

But these aren’t the car’s only strong points. The Figo Aspire also offers an attractive design scheme on the outside and a neatly trimmed premium looking interior. To add to that, Ford offers six airbags as a safety feature which is a segment first. What makes it our Compact Car of the Year is that this whole package is offered at a reasonable price.

The 2016 CNBC TV18 OVERDRIVE Awards were judged by a panel of experts on a range of criteria (read more about our judging methodology here) including how well they suit the role, value for the money they demand and also how involving they are to drive. No matter the category, we at OVERDRIVE value driver/riderinvolvement. A vehicle has to put a smile on its pilot’s face, no matter the power or price and that’s definitely one of the criteria in our judging process.
