Barely a few days back Ford officially showcased the production version of their Figo Aspire Compact sedan and confirmed that it will be the first car to come out of the new Sanand plant in Gujarat. But in an interesting update, MotorBeam.com has snapped the new Dzire rival during a commercial shoot which also features Bollywood celebrity Farhan Akhtar.
The car was snapped getting filmed at Palm Beach Road in Navi Mumbai and this update takes us a little closer to its launch, which may be earlier than the three odd months expected earlier. Generally, companies record commercials and other promotional videos/photos of the car when it is absolutely ready to hit the roads, just before launch.
This maroon colored Figo Aspire must be the top of the line version and features alloy wheels, beige interiors and a lot of cameras. As we said during the global unveiling of the concept car back in 2014, Figo Aspire looks pretty well proportioned and may end up as the best looking compact sedan in the country.
Ford has officially confirmed that the Classic replacement will come with 1.2 liter TiVCT petrol engine and 1.5 liter TDCI diesel engine. What Ford has not confirmed yet is which engine will the (spied) automatic transmission come mated with? Therefore, there is a wide belief that there will be the third 1.5 liter petrol motor on offer as well, just like the EcoSport.
