Ford launched today its compact sedan – New Ford Aspire in India. It is available in five variants across two fuel options and seven colours, including White Gold, Moondust Silver, Smoke Grey, Absolute Black Deep Impact Blue, Ruby Red and Oxford White at price starting from INR 555,000.

The compact sedan is powered by new three-cylinder 1.2L TiVCT petrol engine that is small, light and fuel efficient. It generates best-in-class 96 PS of peak power and 120 Nm of torque while delivering an outstanding fuel efficiency of 20.4 KM/l.

In the Diesel option, the new Ford Aspire comes with the trusted 1.5L TDCi engine delivering class-leading 100 PS peak power, 215 Nm of torque and fuel economy of 26.1 KM/l.

Both engines are paired with an all-new, five-speed manual transmission which is almost 15% lighter and helps improve fuel economy while reducing NVH. It requires 40% lesser gear oil than its predecessor. Drivers will definitely experience slicker, more responsive gear shifts when they are behind the wheel as claimed by the company.

Ford has also introduced its latest six-speed Automatic Transmission on the New Ford Aspire. Paired to the latest 1.5L Petrol, three-cylinder engine, the Automatic New Ford Aspire delivers a peak power of 123 PS. All three engines will be the most powerful in their respective categories.

On the design front, the redesigned front fascia features a dynamic three-dimensional cellular grille. New fog lamps are encrusted in a premium chrome surrounding and harmoniously integrated into the front bumper. Headlamps in the New Ford Aspire feature a black encasing that looks sporty yet premium. Similarly, new design tail lamps accentuate its formidable stance on the road. The new Aspire also features premium alloys and bigger 15-inch tyres to deliver confidence and planted drive dynamics.

The new Aspire features warm, beige interiors, adding to the premium-ness and the enhanced sense of space. The seats have better support including a central armrest with two integrated cup or bottle holders in the rear. It also incorporates a reverse parking camera, best-in-class automatic climate control system, two USB slots, push-button start/stop, electrochromic IRVM, rain-sensing wipers and automatic headlamps.

For safety, the new Aspire offers standard dual airbags across the variant line-up and up to six airbags on top Titanium+ trim. Besides this, it has Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), helping drivers better grip. This new sedan also has Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS). Also in Automatic Transmission, the Hill-Launch Assist feature will ensure greater control on inclines.

The New Ford Aspire features Ford’s in-car infotainment system, SYNC 3 with a 6.5-inch touchscreen which is Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatible and will allow drivers to use navigation through their Apple CarPlay or Android Auto paired phones. The SYNC 3 system will also offer Emergency Assistance, a potentially lifesaving technology that automatically calls emergency services from a paired phone in case of an accident.

The New Ford Aspire is the only compact sedan in India to come with a first-in-class five-year or 100,000 KM warranty, which includes 2-year factory warranty and 3-year extended warranty. Moreover, it will continue to offer lowest scheduled service and maintenance costs in its segment – at just 38 paise per kilometre for petrol and 46 paise per kilometre for diesel over 100,000 KM.
