The Figo Aspire arrives late to the compact sedan party but has the potential to do well and appeal to a lot of compact sedan buyers. The car looks smart, is good on quality, drives well, offers powerful and efficient engines and most importantly, gets a long list of standard safety and comfort features. It goes on sale in August.
The Figo Aspire features Fordâ€™s Kinetic design language that aims at offering a premium and dynamic theme
The D shaped tail lamps look striking but donâ€™t feature LED lighting. Like most of the compact sedans today, the Figo Aspire also gets a chrome strip that runs across the width of the car
The side is bland save for the headlamps and the prominent shoulder line do add some flavour
The 14-inch 8-spoke alloy wheels looks stylish and go well with the overall design. The wheel fills up the arch quite well
The Titanium+ is the fully loaded variant and it also gets segment first leather seats, the 4.2-inch information screen with the Sync feature, CD player, side and passenger airbags and Ford MyKey
The swooping headlamps are large and look like an evolved version of the current Figo unit
The steering wheel, centre console and information screen look very similar to the EcoSport and Fiesta
Boot space at 359 litres isnâ€™t as much as the Amaze or the Xcent but it is quite usable. The loading height is good and the boot is deep too
The rear kneeroom isnâ€™t best in segment but is still very impressive. The front seats have been scooped out to maximize room at the rear. Shoulder room isnâ€™t a lot, so three adults in the back can be a squeeze. The floor isnâ€™t fully flat too so it is good only for two adults. A rear armrest is also offered
Door mounted bottle holders are large and can accommodate more than one bottle if needed
The dials could have been slightly larger
