Ford Figo Aspire Facelift: Spied fully uncamouflaged ahead of launch

by CarToq Editor

The soon to be launched Ford Figo Aspire has been in news for quite some time now. The car has been caught testing many times, though camouflaged. Here are some fully uncamouflaged pictures of the upcoming car.

Forumers at Team-BHP have got hold of some stills which show the production-ready model of the Figo Aspire. The photos in question are of the Titanium variant. The shots reveal that the Aspire facelift will get a new honeycomb grille done in chrome, flanked by reworked headlamp clusters.

The front bumper has been redesigned and now comes with a wider central air dam and redesigned round foglamps. The fog lamps are enclosed within the C-shaped silver trim. The rear also features a redesigned bumper. The chrome slab running across the boot and the tail lamp clusters look similar to the outgoing model.

It also gets a reverse parking camera on top of the number plate housing. This facelifted version rides on stylish multi-spoke alloys that look real good. On the inside, it is apparent that the car takes styling cues from the updated EcoSport. The Aspire facelift will continue to come with the black and beige dual tone interior.

The dashboard, however, has been updated with a new centre console, which houses a floating touchscreen infotainment system similar to the one seen on the EcoSport, albeit with a slightly different positioning. There are lesser buttons for in-car controls now and re-positioned central air-con vents.

There is also an engine start-stop button positioned closer to the driver which could be beneficial for efficiency. It is likely that Ford will launch the new Aspire with a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder Dragon Series petrol engine. Additionally, a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder diesel unit will also be on offer. Transmission duties might be done by a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic gearbox. It is expected that Ford would bring in the car during the festive season. The Ford Aspire facelift will be launched on October 4th, 2018.
