I am confused to choose between diesel models of Grand i10 and Ford Figo Titanium, please advice which one would be a better choice. If you suggestion is for Ford then does company ensures the availability of spare parts during the expected lifespan of Figo Titanium?

The design is absolutely subjective, everyone has their own choice but for me the i10 looks a bit more attractive. While in terms of dimensions, Figo is lengthier and wider than i10 which translates to better space inside the cabin. The boot space of both cars is similar to each other.
In terms of performance, Figo Titanium diesel is leagues ahead of the i10 diesel – its 1.5 liter TDCi liter turbocharged diesel engine produces peak power of 99 bhp and peak torque of 215 Nm which is much better than 70 bhp and 160 Nm of i10’s 1.1 CRDi turbocharged diesel engine. Moreover, despite having a bigger engine the ARAI claimed mileage of Figo diesel (25.83 kmpl) is better than i10 diesel (24 kmpl)
Finally, in my opinion, Ford Figo Titanium 1.5 is the better car of the two as it offers better performance better ride quality and also the solid build quality.
There is no need to worry about long-term spare parts availability as automakers have to make spares parts and servicing available during a product's expected lifespan and also they earn a lot of money in the spare parts business, so they usually continue making parts for years even after a car is off the market.
