Every manufacturer in the country is currently undergoing the process of updating their offering to meet the upcoming emission norms that will come into effect from April onwards. American car manufacturer Ford has also started doing the same. They launched EcoSport with a BS6 compliant engine, Endeavour also got a BS6 update recently and other cars like Freestyle, Ford Figo and Ford Figo Aspire are also BS6 compliant now. Here we have a couple of videos that shows what all has changed in the new BS6 version of the Figo hatchback and Figo Aspire compact sedan.
Both the videos have been uploaded by AutoTrend TV on their youtube channel. The video starts by showing the exteriors of the BS6 version of the Figo hatchback. The variant in the video is the Titanium and not the Titanium Blu variant. The Titanium variant does not get fog lamps in the BS6 version but there is provision for installing an aftermarket one. The bumper remains unchanged. It gets the same wide grille at the front with chrome inserts in it. Conventional type headlamps and C shaped inserts in the bumper too.
Coming to the side profile, it has the same design but now gets a new dual tone alloy wheel. The rear of the car is also the same as that of the BS4 version. Interiors gets the same fit and finish as that of the BS4 version. Titanium version now does not get a touchscreen infotainment system to keep the costs down. Apart from that no major changes can be seen in the Figo.
Next is the Aspire compact sedan, which also does not get any visual changes from the outside. It remains unchanged with the same old wide grille, chrome garnish on the bumper and so on. The Aspire also gets the newly designed alloy wheels similar to the one on Figo. On the inside, the cabin gets dual treatment and gets the touchscreen infotainment system that does not support Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.
It however gets a in-built navigation feature. Both Figo and Aspire are now available with a 1.2 litre petrol and 1.5 litre diesel engine that is BS6 compliant. Prices for BS6 Ford Figo now starts at Rs 5.39 lakkh which is around Rs 16,000 more expensive than the BS4 version. The Ford Aspire BS6 is now priced at Rs 5.99 lakh which is only Rs 500 more expensive than the BS4 version.
