New 2018 Ford Aspire price to start at Rs 5.5 lakh, launch on 4th OctoberSeptember 9, 2018
Ford India will launch the new, updated 2018 Aspire in India on 4th October. The big news is that the Aspire will see a price cut and will get an entry level sticker price of Rs 5.5 lakh now, about 35,000 less than the outgoing version. With more features in place, the new Aspire will offer better value for money ever before. It will also be cheaper than the Maruti Dzire and the Honda Amaze.
So what is new in the new Aspire? Here is a quick look
- New front end styling that is borrowed partially from the Freestyle. This includes new bumper, new fog lamp inserts and a new grille design
- New alloy wheel design which look upmarket and classier
- Added features like a new touchscreen interface
- All-new 1.2 litre Dragon series petrol engine with segment leading power and torque
The new 1.2 litre Dragon series engine was first seen in the Freestyle and with a rated power / torque output of 96 PS / 120 Nm, the Aspire surely will be fun to drive. An increasing number of buyers are now looking at petrol options due to narrow price disparity between fuel prices and the Aspire will have an edge over rivals.
Ford was not able to taste success with the older Aspire inspite of spacious interiors and excellent ride / handling on offer. With the new Aspire, at a lower price, Ford will definitely get in good numbers. Stay tuned for more!
