Which car (diesel) is best among Ford Aspire, Suzuki DZire and Baleno?
By: ajeeth on 2 may 2017
DZire and Baleno both are same company products and powered by same 1.3 liter DDiS engine hence both have same performance. Both these cars are built on the same platform, have roughly the same features, and come at around the same price tag. Baleno is a hatchback while DZire is a compact sedan. Baleno looks more premium from outside and the interiors of Baleno also feels more classy. In my opinion between DZire and Baleno the latter is a better choice.
Now let’s compare Baleno (diesel) and Aspire (diesel), Both the cars have different styling approach and good interiors, spacious cabin and loaded with features. Performance wise Aspire looks better as it is powered by more powerful 1.5 liter engine compared to Baleno’s 1.3 liter engine. The claimed mileage of Aspire is 25.8 while of Baleno is 27.3 in the real world driving conditions. On the highways Aspire performs better, but not by a huge margin.
Fords spare parts and service cost is almost in line to Maruti now. Aspire warranty is 2 years / 100000 kms where Baleno’s is 2 years / 40,000 kms. The Aspire has been priced cheaper than the Baleno which makes a strong case for it.
In my opinion Aspire (diesel) is a better choice here. But this was all my personal opinion; I advise you to test drive both cars and decide as per your experience and liking which car is better for you.
