Ford Aspire Review

Ford gave the relatively new Aspire a facelift and here we are driving both petrol and diesel engine variants of the car to answer all your questions. Boasting the longest wheelbase in the segment, we will compare the Aspire against the Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire and Honda Amaze in this review. Overall, we love the car as it offers the most value for money in the segment and offers great engineering and driver engagement. We, however, did not get to review the third engine, a 1.5-litre petrol which is mated to an automatic transmission as it was not available at the time of shooting this video.
