Wonder why they dropped the DCT type automatic?
The DCT (the same as the Fiesta/Ecosport) suffered reliability issues. Looks like no DCT/DSG is safe and trouble free in India. However, no complaints whatsoever with the torque converter transmission. Should be cheaper to manufacture too.

Prices are the same for both, 18k. but there's a difference with the figures.

When I checked with my friend's circle, there are cars with both remap. thus I'll only decide after test-driving both. As I use my car daily for my office run, I'll be picking a map having good drivability.
Thanks Joseph, keep us posted. My friend has got his diesel Freestyle remapped by Wolf Moto and is very happy with the results.

Tyre Make and model -Accelera PHI-R.

Amount quoted by the tyre shop is 15k with my 14" stocks and tyres.
That seems like quite a fair price. Have they given you an option for other tires as well?

Test drive vehicles for Figo 1.5 AT is still not available in Chennai but I had a chance to try the same engine+gearbox in the Aspire this afternoon. My short review is at the Aspire's thread here

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offic...ml#post4602964 (2018 Ford Aspire Facelift : Official Review)

In summary,

The Engine+Gearbox was disappointing and I did not have much fun driving the car, never mind redlining it.

Maybe that is the reason why Ford isnt pushing it much in their marketing?

@VijaySundar - I had a test drive of the Ford Aspire automatic recently and I found it better than all of the other automatic cars that i have test driven recently. This includes the honda Jazz CVT , Venue Automatic and the Brezza automatic

So it's possible that you got a defective car.
