The new Figo Aspire imbibes Ford’s DNA, which is instantly recognizable in the trapezoidal grille and the large, elongated headlamps. According to ford, the raked-back windshield and sweeping lines convey a “strong sense of movement”. Chrome highlights and technical details in the headlight design try to add a premium touch.
