I bought the Ford Aspire on April 2018 ,just before the production of the old model stopped. But I ll never regret that decision! I had a pretty good discount by negotiating, as news was spread in the air that the facelifted model was going to be launched soon. My showroom experience was pretty good and they did treat me well.
I have driven around 7000 kms in the past 5 months and it is surprising me everyday (in a good way though). The suspension is set up soft which is very good for low speeds but in highways, you may feel a thud creeping into the cabin.
The best thing in the car how it turns. This is the best steering setup in a car below 10 lakhs in India, fact! It is so chuckable around corners and the steering is calibrated very well. Kudos to Ford for that.
If wanna talk about looks and that's your main priority to boast in front of your friends and family for the stylish design, then the Ford Aspire may disappoint you. It's not for everyone's taste. My suggestion to you would be to check out other cars like the Suzuki baleno and the Hyundai i20(diesel).
The Ford Aspire diesel is the perfect car for a car enthusiast. The power surge comes after 1700 rpm. Before that it's calm and not so responsive, but after it hits then you'll experience real fun. And as it is small in size and you don't have to worry much, you can have fun in cities too. You can feel the clear difference as it has 12-14 bhp than it's competitors. It just pulls and pulls in the highway but I really had wished that Ford introduced a sixth gear in the diesel variant (not offered in the latest model also). I hope we had more pocket rockets like these in India.
Mileage is unbelievable! You can get around 21-23 km/l if you travel everyday through the highways. In cities you can get a maximum of 15-17. Tried and tested in Mumbai traffic so that you can believe me.
Service and maintenance is not at all a problem as Ford is desperately trying nowadays to improve their mistakes which they did in the past. Almost every main component in the car is significantly cheaper than those offered by Suzuki.
1) The best driver focused car under 10 lakhs in India! Punchy engine with a feedback rich steering setup.
2) Very practical with huge cubby holds in the front. Space in the real seat is decent too.
3) Mileage is just great.
4) Service and maintenance cost is less compared to it's competitors.
1) It is not that appealing to look and may have mixed reactions from everyone.
2) Even though the ground clearance is high, the front flap touches almost everywhere.
3) Cabin quality could have been improved drastically. As Ford has used hard plastics n the interior.
Overall, I would recommend this car to everyone and the facelifted model is much more better and feature loaded. And the good part is, the new model is almost the price as the previous one.
