The only company to have a pony car in India is also known as a one-trick pony. That name comes from the fact that the American company only has never had more than one car doing well on the sales charts. At first, it was the Ikon, next it was the Fiesta (Classic), then the Figo and lastly the EcoSport. The company was hoping to see the Figo and Aspire turn into stars by turning it into mass market cars but that didn't happen.

Ford has always held a special place among people who love to spend time behind the wheel. Their cars have been great handlers and deliver joy in spades. The latest Figo and new Aspire lost that touch by going soft. After all, that's what sells. That turned off the faithful followers and didn't help bring too many new buyers either.

The Figo Sports and Aspire Sports hope to change that and bring the mojo back into the duo. The two cars are said to be better handlers with stiffer suspension and also have some distinctive visual characteristics to help them stand out from the regular Figo and Aspire.

Additional features of the Figo Sports over the Figo Titanium include:

  • Black painted headlamp bezel

  • Black ORVM and roof

  • Honeycomb grille

  • Rear spoiler

  • Side and rear decals

  • Painted alloys

  • Base seat with red stitching

  • Leather wrapped steering wheel with red stitching

The Sports variants are priced at:

  • Figo Sports

    • Petrol: Rs 6.31 lakh

    • Diesel: Rs 7.21 lakh

  • Aspire Sports

That's a premium of Rs 49,000 over the regular Figo Titanium and Rs 33,000 over the Aspire Titanium. The two cars already have an explosive, yet frugal, diesel engine with 100PS of power and 215Nm of torque. The petrol engine is par for the course and packs 88PS of power and 112Nm of torque.
