Ford Figo: Recently, Ford has uncovered the 2018 Ford Figo Aspire facelift before the official launch. The company develops the latest variant in its Sanand factory in Gujarat for export in the international market like South Africa. The American automotive maker will also launch the brand-new sedan facelift in the Indian market later by the end of 2018. The company has offered some remarkable changes in the mid-spec variant in terms of appearance exterior and interior. Now, it gets an all-new exterior as well as interior modifications which are really awesome.
The latest hatchback Ford Figo Facelift is outfitted with a modified improved chrome-framed grille. It is now highlighted with latest extended headlights and new rear bumper. The company has extended the length of the vehicle to differentiate between the new and old versions. It is further seen in a dual blend aspect with the all-black darkened lower part. Some other modifications include C-shaped fog lamps with chrome cover and black-shaded rear angular bumper. However, from the side sections, we don’t find any distinction between the existing and the new variants.
The company has revealed the South Africa sedan model which is a mid-spec option. In SA, the company has not announced to sell the top-spec Titanium variants. The SA model will also limit some bonus and safety features which will be available in the European variants. The cabin looks same but comes with some major changes on the all-new dash. The vehicle is equipped with a new traditional dash which looks comparable to the newly introduced Freestyle model. The dash is outfitted with an advanced 6.5-inches touchscreen infotainment system that is developed with the Ford Sync 3 technology. The infotainment also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto which is nowadays common in all mid-specs small cars.
Now about the most interesting technical specs which make the new variant unique. The company has developed two powertrains for the international selling. It will be available in 1.2-litre and 1.5-litre three-cylinder engines exclusively from the innovative Dragon line-up. Although, the Indian model will run on a 1.2-litre petrol engine generating 96hp, and 1.5-litre diesel engines producing 100hp of power. The engine is expected to be combined with a 5-speed manual gearbox for the diesel variant and 6-speed torque converter automatic for petrol variant. Ford can roll out the Figo Aspire in the month of September this year. The prices are not yet announced by the company.
