Engine Specification

Ford Figo Aspire : The Aspire is available with a choice of three engine options—a 1.2-litre petrol engine that produces 88 PS a 1.5-litre petrol engine that produces 112 PS and a 1.5-litre diesel engine that produces 100 PS. The engines are mated to a manual or an automatic gearbox.

Maruthi Swift Dzire :The Dzire is offered with a choice of either a 1.2-litre petrol engine that produces 83 PS of power or a 1.3-litre Fiat-sourced turbo diesel engine that produces 75 PS. Like the Aspire, the Dzire too is offered with an automatic transmission.


Mileage

This is an area of concern for many Indian customers. 

The Figo Aspire delivers 18.2 kpl with the petrol engine and 25.8 kpl for the diesel engine. 

The Dzire returns a fuel efficiency of 20.85 with the petrol engine while the diesel engine delivers 26.59 kpl.



Safety

This is another criteria which is of growing concern in India. Improved safety features are increasingly becoming a standardised feature in the country. The Figo Aspire comes with standard dual airbags for the front, while the top end version gets six airbags, including side and curtain airbags. This is one important feature the Dzire misses out on aside from the top end variant, which gets two airbags.



Verdict

Ford has surely got the right product for India with the Aspire's performance, safety, features, and most importantly, the pricing. What gives the Dzire an edge over the Aspire is Maruti's service network which is found in every nook and corner. It comes down to whether you wish to aspire towards value for money or desire ease of service.
