With the low profile tyres a considerable amount of cushioning is lost, esp. if the car is equipped with stiff springs. Performance suspension setup will further worsen the ride quality.
I think I didn't put it the right way. With bounce I mean the suspension seems to be on softer side. So it bounces on slight undulation. On corners/braking/lane change it dives a little too much.

Is this just me who feel Figo ride is bouncy compared to older model. I am contemplating a change of suspension springs because this bounciness is killing half the joy this car could offer.
I have exclusively driven the old Figo & the Aspire (which I believe has a similar suspension setup like the new Figo). Strictly speaking from ride quality point of view, the Punto has a noticeably better ride quality than the Figo & the Aspire. Punto surely did have a magic carpet ride quality, even the likes of Polo are no match for the Punto when it comes to ride quality. Having said that, changing some suspension part might improve the ride quality but don't expect Punto like ride quality.

Regarding the scheme - does it mean that your car will be registered without mortgage info since you haven't taken any loan yet?
No, car is registered with hypothecation. It's like taking a loan with 1 year moratorium period. You have the option to prepay without any charges.


Done first inspection of my "Sunsuni" today, mileage 2500 kms in 3 weeks. For last couple of days, had a jarring sound coming from the passenger side door when car body vibrates in uneven road. The service engineer tightened the door latch n speaker area with some packing n the sound is gone for now. Will need to monitor for a few days.

My Aspire Sports is delivering 20 kilometres to a litre of diesel. Outstanding. I miss the sheer weight and build quality of my Punto though. Guess you canít have everything

Have you checked by the tankful to tankful method? It will be much accurate that way.
Also the driving conditions in which you get these figures.

I get 15 kmpl in city with moderate traffic and AC.

Posting on behalf of a friend who is not a member on this forum. Can the touchscreen from the new Freestyle be retrofitted onto the Figo Sport model? If yes, any idea on the costs involved?

Not sure if that will be possible and if yes, whether Ford will do it.

On the Sports, the spot were the touchscreen is, there is the music system. The other option would be to replace the full dashboard with that of the Freestyle., if that is again a possibility.

Too complicated for a touchscreen I would say.

As another option, there is an aftermarket frame available for the Figo that facilitates fixing of a Double DIN touchscreen HU. Like this.

Booked an aspire sports diesel today. After discounts 8.54 OTR Trivandrum. The sales representative also promised to give parking sensors free on delivery.

Is it a good deal ?

I wanted the Ruby red one, but the SA said that since production has already stopped to make way for the facelift, it is almost impossible to get that colour and that the only aspire sports they have in stock is white.

Also on my query if the honeycomb grill of Figo sports can be fitted to the aspire sports, the SA was doubtful and he said that the clips could be different and might need a full bumper replacement. Is anyone aware if that is really the case ?

The bumpers of the Figo and Aspire have subtle differences. There is no way a Figo grill can be fitted in an Aspire unless you change the bumper.
