Changes lending a fresh look to the Ford Aspire sedan include a chrome grille with revised headlights and C-shaped fog lamp inserts. Round at the back, there is a redesigned bumper and a chrome garnish. Then, the cabin will feature a dual-tone interior with a new dashboard featuring a floating touchscreen infotainment system.
On the powertrain front, a choice of petrol and diesel engines is expected to be offered with the updated model. These might include a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol and a 1.5-litre, three-cylinder Dragon series petrol engine with an option of a manual or automatic transmission. On the other hand, the 1.5-litre, four-cylinder diesel mill could be carried over unchanged or with some re-tuning.
The Ford Aspire is a sub-four metre sedan that was launched in India in 2015. It was introduced at a competitive price going up against the Maruti Dzire, Honda Amaze and Hyundai Xcent. We expect the upcoming 2018 Aspire to do the same. Its variant-wise equipment details and respective prices will be announced tomorrow. Stay tuned to CarWale for all the updates.
