Ford Aspire Latest Updates
After it was spotted testing recently on Indian roads, Ford has finally launched the all new Aspire Blu Edition. Based on the Titanium variant of the Aspire, the Blu edition is priced at Rs 7.51 lakh for the petrol variant and Rs 8.31 lakh for the diesel variant (both ex-showroom, Delhi). The key changes on the Aspire Blu are blacked out grille, wing mirrors, roof and the alloy wheels. On the inside as well, it gets all-black interiors with blue inserts on the door pads and blue stitching on the seats, like its hatchback sibling Figo. The Aspire Blu is powered by the same set of engines as before and gets the 1.2-litre Dragon series petrol engine and the familiar 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine. What’s a bit of a bummer though, is the fact that it is only available with a manual transmission. The Aspire faces stiff competition in India from the likes of the Tata Tigor, Honda Amaze and Maruti Suzuki Dzire.
Aspire 2018 Overview
With the facelift, Ford has managed to iron out a lot of wrinkles in the Aspire’s package. It packs in not one, but two new petrol engines and two new gearboxes too. It continues to offer the stellar safety package but misses out on a bit of bling and falters a bit in the space and quality department. Priced aggressively, we think the Aspire is a phenomenal value-for-money package. It’s amongst the few cars that can pretty much do it all.
