Based on the next-generation Figo hatchback, also known as the KA, the Aspire is Ford India’s first sub-4 meter compact sedan. It’s also one of the prettiest one around in its segment. Style notwithstanding, it’ll have its work cut out by formidable opponents like the Maruti Swift Dzire, Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent and the Tata Zest. It will be manufactured at Ford’s recently inaugurated Sanand plant in Gujarat.
