Introduced more than a year ago in conceptual form, Ford's Figo Aspire small sedan has gone on sale in India.

The cute subcompact model is 3995 mm long, 1695 mm wide and 1525 mm tall, with a 2,491 mm wheelbase and a spacious 359-liter trunk capacity. It aims to compete directly with Maruti Suzuki's Dzire and will be available with three engines: 1.2-liter Ti-VCT rated at 88 PS & 112 Nm, 1.5-liter TDCi with 100 PS & 215 Nm and a 1.5-liter Ti-VCT engine producing 112 PS & 136 Nm. The first two engines work with a 5-speed manual while the third one is teamed up with a 6-speed automatic 'box.

It is bound to show up in Ford India's dealerships next month or so and it will be available with six airbags, ABS (with EBD) and the company's SYNC infotainment system while Ford MyKey, leather upholstery and ESP (with Launch Assist) are also part of the package. Keep in mind that some of these goodies cost extra, just like the automatic climate control system available on the upper-spec versions.

The Figo Aspire will be assembled at Ford's newly established factory in Gujarat, India and will be sold with six body color options along with Ambiente, Trend, Titanium and Titanium+ trim levels.
