Verdict

The Ford Figo Aspire is a very good package overall. It is one of the prettiest cars in its segment, gets an exhaustive list of features and comes with a very strong engine line up. In terms of handling and driving dynamics, it isn’t as sharp as the other Fords we have driven over the past few years, but it is one of the best in its class. Ford has also taken the safety aspect very seriously by making dual airbags standard across the range and providing side and curtain airbags in the higher spec trims of the Figo Aspire. Ford has also stated that they have been working hard at bringing the after sales and maintenance costs of its vehicles down and the Figo Aspire’s will be kept in check. Long story short, the Ford Figo Aspire is a very promising product which is well packaged and checks all the right boxes. Ultra competitive pricing should make the Figo Aspire a force to reckon with in its segment.
