Introduction

First time when the all new Ford Figo Aspire was introduce to the world then the first impression of the car was like wait a second it looked like an Aston Martin in the front and then when looked from the side, look from the side to the bonnet where the heart of the car lies is like a Mustang, damn stylish look. It's the car which is value for money price and position. 1.5 litre diesel engine is powerfull and efficient where the commuter 1.2 litre petrol engine is a bit unimpressive which can be said as a mediocre engine for the harsh drivers.

Enigine and Transmission

In this car the dual-clutch automatic transmission with the big 1.5 litre engine offers a good driveability. But on either side the 1.2 litre petrol commuter engine is not that efficient as the diesel. Now this sub-compact sedan comes with three engine option which is 1.2 litre petrol, 1.5 litre diesel and 1.5 litre 6 speed dual clutch transmission. Ford has taken the same 1196cc petrol enigine from the existing hatchback which churns out 86.6 bhp and 112 NM of peak torque at 4000 rpm. While on the other side 1.5 litre churns out 98.6 bhp and 215 NM of torque at 1750-3000 rpm. Now for the drivers who want to shift manually they get 5 speed manual transmission.

Technology

New Ford Aspire comes with 4 speaker, it has got radio + auxilary and USB inputs, CD player, Bluetooth connectivity, Myford device dock, Sync with voice control and Applink, steering mounted controls. Remote key entry and electrically adjustable ORVMs are common nowadays. Now the new technology of this car is that it has got Guide me Home headlamps, in this technology what happen is suppose you are at party and after the party you have to find your car among the all the cars in the parking area then on pressing the unlock button on the key the car will guide you to it.

Safety

This car comes with lots of safety features. Some of them are like dual front as well as side and curtains airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP+ traction control and hill start assist. Front and rear fog lamps are standard across all the variants. Now if the driver forgets to put on the seatbelts the car will remind about it. Auto locking doors when the car is in full motion the car automatically locks all the doors. Anti-theft alarm, Rear deffoger as well as 14 inch alloy wheels only comes in 2 variants that are titanium and titanium+.

Comfort

While speaking of the comfyness of this car, it gets tilt adjustable steering, Electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs, 6-speed variable intermitting front wipers, Height adjustable driver's seat and a Multifunction display which is standard across all the variants. Now many the car reviewers and owners are disappointed in a fact that this car doesn't come with reach adjustable steering wheels and rear AC vents. It comes with leather seats. Manual AC is provided in 2 variants Ambient and Trend while climate control in 2 variants Titanium and Titanium+. Driver's arm rest is not provided but the rear seat arm rest is standard in 3 variants except ambient. Now a days power windows are standard across all the variants but in a sub-compact sedan like this car driver side one touch up/down window is standard across all the four variants.
