Ford Figo Aspire engines

 

Delhi Ford Figo Aspire will be made available in three engine options- two petrol and one diesel- with two transmission options to choose from. The petrol range comprises a 1.2-litre and a 1.5-litre unit whereas the diesel models will come powered by a 1.5-litre engine.

 

The 1.2 petrol is derived from the currently available Ford Figo, albeit it has been heavily tweaked and now features ‘Ti-VCT’ technology, or in general speak, variable valve timing. The engine develops 88PS of maximum power output and 112Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and delivers a claimed fuel economy of 18.16km/l.

 

Next up on offer will be the bigger 1.5-litre Ti-VCT petrol motor that churns out a maximum power output of 112PS (most-powerful in its class!) along with 136 Nm of peak-torque. This engine is only offered with a six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission and returns 17 km/l.

 

The Ford Figo Aspire looks mighty impressive and measures up quite well against its competitors. It has also been decently packaged with features and equipment across all variants.

Ford Figo Aspire With new touchscreen system

 

Ford has begun development of a new touchscreen infotainment system for its upcoming models. Ford’s decision to develop a new touchscreen system comes on the back of growing demand for touchscreen systems in cars across all segments.

 

The new touchscreen system is likely to be introduced on the facelifted Figo and Figo Aspire which are expected to make their debut in 2018 following and the new touchscreen system could mean a redesigned dashboard for the Figos as the current infotainment display housing is located too far away for touch access.
