The Figo Sports and the Aspire Sports come powered by either a 1.2-litre TiVCT petrol engine generating a peak power of 88 PS or a 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine that generates 100 PS, when mated to five-speed manual gearbox. The Sports Editions are claimed to run 18.12 km in a litre of petrol and 24.29 km in a litre of diesel.

Since only in the Titanium variant, both the updated cars get dual front driver and passenger airbags, along with ABS and EBD as standard.

What’s new in the sports editions
  • Retuned suspension, bigger 15-inch alloy wheels
  • Dual tone exteriors -- blacked out roof and ORVMs, grille, black inset on headlamp bezel
  • Standard front dual airbags along with ABS, EBD, and EPAS
  • MyFord Dock for mounting and plugging in smartphone, navigators, etc

There’s also a MyFord Dock, which pops out of the dash for drivers to mount and charge mobile phones, MP3 players and navigators, from where they can also be integrated into the car’s entertainment system.

To make this edition distinct from the standard ones, the alloy wheels, roof and grille have been blacked out and the headlamps have got black insets on the bezel to emote aggression.
