Rs.489000 for the base model petrol, ex-showroom price Delhi, Rs.598000 for the base model diesel again ex-showroom price Delhi. These are the prices announced as for now, the rest are yet to come, the SA says he will get the OTR Hyderabad prices by the end of the day and let me know.

Can anyone confirm if the Inside rear view mirror with built-in screen for rear view camera, sensors and GPS a standard accessory or do we have to buy it separately from ford dealerships?

Ford has kept the prices a bit lower than all other competing 4m sedans, variant for variant. This is a pleasant surprise that we received after the shocks from the premium vehicles.
Ford definitely seems to have some plans to increase footfalls to its showrooms, by keeping the price competitive. Ford has gauged the market well, unlike Honda, which always charges a premium over competitors, even on its entry level vehicles.
Way to Go!

None of the variants come with a rear camera/GPS. You will have to buy this as an accessory

I am eager to see the test drive reports for the automatic!
The AT seems to be priced higher, will have to see the review. The Ecosport AT has side side and curtain airbags and some other features and the price difference doesn't seem to reflect that. Also Ecosport uses Boron steel and there is no mention about that for the Aspire.

Superb pricing - especially the AT variant. A 1.5L DCT same or cheaper than Xcent AT, Amaze and Jazz CVT (all with 1.2 L engines) should totally blow out the competition with performance. Good job Ford India.

Edit-Adding Automatic variants of Xcent/Amaze/Ecosport ex-Delhi prices here-

Amaze 1.2 S AT (i-VTEC) Petrol : Rs 695,800
Amaze 1.2 VX AT (i-VTEC) Petrol : Rs 778,800

Xcent SX (O) Solid : Rs 763,982
Xcent SX (O) Metallic : Rs 767,634

Ecosport : 1.5 TiVCT Titanium AT - Rs 972,800

Very, very sensible pricing from Ford! Two or three such moves and they will soon talk much bigger volumes. I hope these prices are not just introductory!

Great pricing from Ford! With this I'm sure they will have a winner on their side. As everyone has been mentioning on this forum, this is a great relief from the recent skyward pricing of the premium vehicles.

I was really looking forward to the launch of the Aspire, especially for the DCT, Dual-Clutch-Automatic) version.

Can someone confirm the features and specs of the AT petrol ? And approximate On-road price in Delhi ?

Also I wonder, is it possible to talk to the Ford guys about providing the AT model in the top-spec version?

Very very good pricing from Ford. Looks like they are looking for volumes with this competent product. Low selling sedans like Xcent are already feeling the heat what with making ABS standard just before the Aspire launch. Amaze too will feel a bit of heat, but it will survive due to the Honda brand name. Zest will be very difficult to sell now. No effect on Dzire, as always.

I'm not sure if the brochures or the website carry this information. But Nigel mentioned this as a point during the launch event. Would be better if someone can confirm though. Also there was a customized warranty option which customers can buy that was talked about in the launch event, but again not in detail with respect to pricing.

still cool news, this means ford does sell this according to their brochere and there wont be after market accessory addition needed, translating no unnecessary conflict or headache with warranty.

Like many have said, after the last 2 launch-day-pricing-disappointments, this has turned out to be a surprise, and a pleasant one at that! Way to go Ford!

Safe, powerful and still delivering decent fuel efficiency - that's my take on the Aspire. Now waiting for the official Team BHP review to go live. Though I still have a good half year to go for a new car, I think this makes it to the list of my 'definitely to be considered' cars. Yes, if I want to nitpick, I can go into the details of why there's no AVN integrated, no reverse camera, no push start, type of materials used for body construction and so on; having said that, especially considering the de facto 2 airbags even in the base model & 6 airbags + ABD + EBD in the top end - this makes it a good VFM offering.

And a word of caution, Ford: don't be greedy & go the Ecosport way ending up with price hikes later based on demand.

A screengrab from their Ford Figo Aspire.pdf official brochure:

Ford Figo-based compact sedan - The Aspire-aspire-tech-specs.png

Driver and passenger airbag standard across all models! And what pricing! Way to go Ford!

Time for Ford's marketing department to wake up from the deep slumber and promote the hell out of this car. This one needs to roll out of their Sanand plant (related link (Ford's new Car & Engine plant at Sanand, Gujarat)) like hot cakes!
