American auto major, Ford is bracing up to launch the new updated 2018 models of the Ford Figo hatchback and the Ford Aspire subcompact sedan in the Indian market pretty soon. Before launching the new updated models, Ford India has been offering heavy discounts on the Figo and Aspire in March 2018, which are continuing this month as well.
This shower of heavy cash discounts and other benefits is a way of clearing the old stocks of the current Figo and Aspire models in India. The Ford Figo is a very capable hatchback model, but is a slow seller for the company. The Figo based subcompact sedan, Ford Aspire is even better packs in terms of looks and features, but it has not able to make a great mark in the highly competitive Indian entry-level sedan segment.
Ford is thus, soon going to launch the refreshed models of the Figo and Aspire in India, to pack them with better ammunition to start fighting with their rivals afresh. In the mean time Ford India is offering great benefits on these two cars’ current models to find more takers for them.
The ongoing model of the Ford Figo hatchback is on offer with a cash benefit ranging from Rs. 30,960 up to Rs. 34,800 depending on the variants. The exchange offer benefits on the Figo ranges from Rs. 25,800, depending on the variants.
For the Ford Aspire sedan, the American carmaker is offering cash discounts ranging from 42,183 to Rs. 47,415, depending on variants, while exchange offer benefits range remains the same as that offered on the Figo.
For both the cars, the top of the line 1.5 Titanium AT variant is being offered with the maximum cash discount as well as exchange benefit.
However, this month the cash discounts have been decreased (by Rs. 6400 - 7250) as compared against last month’s offer, while exchange bonus range has remained the same. However, you can still avail the dealer level added benefits on top of these company offers by checking at different Ford dealerships in your city to grab the best deal.
The ongoing model of the Ford Figo hatchback is on sale with a price range of Rs. 5.87 lakhs to Rs. Rs 7.19 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). On the other hand, the ongoing model of the Ford Aspire subcompact sedan is selling with a price tag ranging from Rs. 5.67 lakhs to Rs. 8.41 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The American car giant has already stopped the production of the current ongoing Ford Aspire at its Indian manufacturing facility at Sanand, Gujarat in March, 2018. The current Figo model is also most likely to go out of production very soon as well.
Ford India will first launch the Figo based new crossover Freestyle in the current month of April, post which the new Figo and Aspire facelift model launches will follow. The new 1.2L Dragon petrol engine that will debut in India under the hood of the Freestyle will be also making its way in the updated 2018 Figo and Aspire models.
