Added in: Ford


Ford Figo Aspire (22)

The Figo Aspire is all set to be Ford India’s next trump card, ever since the EcoSport rescued them from sinking into muddy waters back in 2013. Now, the Aspire is scheduled for a August 12 launch. Booking of the cars had already commenced since 27 July with the token amount being INR 30,000.

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.
