2017 Ford Aspire S – All You Need to Know

Ford India has launched the sporty ‘S’ edition of its Aspire compact sedan. The new 2017 Ford Aspire S has gone on sale for Rs 6.51 lakh. The latest model is available with two engine options -1.2 Petrol and 1.5 Diesel. While it’s surprising that Ford India isn’t offering the 1.5 TiVCT + DCT with the ‘S’ trim, we are of the belief that the Figo’s stonker of a Diesel engine will justify the ‘S’ tag to a large extent. The 2017 Aspire S comes with a tweaked suspension to offer better road handling manners. Read on for full details on the 2017 Ford Aspire S.

The latest Ford comes with two engine options – 1.2 Petrol and 1.5 Diesel. There’s no 1.5 TiVCT or the Dual Clutch Automatic transmission on offer.

While the Figo S gets black alloys and a honeycomb grille, the 2017 Ford Aspire S gets the same grille as the regular models. However, it misses out on the chrome finish. The Aspire sports edition also gets an all-black interior instead of the black-beige cabin of the regular model.
