Raman's review on Ford Aspire 1.5 TDCi Trend
Year of Manufacture : 2016 | Driven no. of Kms. : 22500
- Pros: Very Powerful Engine. Zero lag from the word go. 0 to 100 KM per hour in less than 10 seconds. Pricewise competes with Dzire bur performance wise it can compete with Cars costing 12 lacs and more. Amazing Interior insulation. Balanced Suspension set up for comfortable ride and Excellent on road fuel economy ranging from 16 to 20 km per litre. On highways, if driven around 60 Kmph then the fuel economy jumps to more than 25 KM per L. Stable at high speeds and lesser cost for maintenance in long run - can easily beat maruti price in diesel car maintenance in long run. Much better safety than maruti swift and dzire. Check out accident reports and how people in Aspire did not get hurt even though car was total loss whereas maruti cars simply get crushed in high impact accidents leaving passengers dead.
- Cons: Tyres could have been of bigger size - possibly 15 inch wheels. At least 185 by 65 section tyres would have done better justice to such a powerful engine. Otherwise, It has all that an Enthusiast wants.
I drive a lot in hills - Nainital, Ranikhet, Pangot etc. and in city (Delhi NCR) as well. I further travel between Delhi and Punjab a lot.
