The Aspire ditches the old 1.5-litre paired with the dual-clutch transmission, in favour of the setup from the EcoSport automatic. This means there's a new 1.5-litre, three-cylinder engine under the bonnet, with a 6-speed torque converter. In this guise, the Aspire makes 123PS of power and 150Nm of torque. But, we haven't tested it yet. So, we would suggest to wait till we get our hands on it.

The Aspire is a good overall package of looks, features, safety and driving dynamics which are not easy to find in the segment. With the recent update, Ford has plugged all the gaps in the Aspire’s arsenal. The new petrol engine is almost as fun to drive as the diesel. It’s amongst the most value-for-money compact sedans on the market today. Ford Aspire offers comfortable ride quality gobbles up potholes and broken surfaces easily. Its clutch, steering and gear action is light that makes it super easy to drive inside the city. Talking about its petrol engine, it comes with 1.2 and 1.5-litre petrol engines. The 1.5-litre engine makes 123PS of power and 150Nm of torque but it’s available with the 6-speed AT gearbox only. The 2018 Ford Aspire facelift we drove had the 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine that produces 96PS of max power and 120Nm of torque, which makes it one of the most powerful engines in its class. Although, it does need to be revved if you want to have fun, but the sweet spot lies just above 3000rpm that is not only approachable but also more forgiving on the consumption front. You only need to rev it all the way up to 6000rpm if you really intend to test the limits of the vehicle. At sedate speeds, it is equally well mannered and there is ample torque available to perform quick overtaking manoeuvres. Talking about the resale value it would be really hard to share any predicted value here. The value completely depends upon the factors like the year of manufacturing, kilometres the car is driven, what is the ownership of the car, the physical condition also play an important role in it. So to get a better word would request you to please visit the nearest authorized dealership so that you can get complete gist regarding the valuation of the car.Related read:2018 Ford Aspire: First Drive Review: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/2018-ford-aspire-first-drive-review/32041/

For Diesel, Aspire is best in terms of safety, power, driving pleasure. Not sure of resale value, I think it's less.
The claimed ARAI mileage for the Ford Aspire diesel is 26 kmpl. It’s a setup that’s going to please most and offend none. The suspension hasn’t seen any major tweaks, save for the ones done to accommodate the bigger wheels and tyres. But, the ride quality does seem to be noticeably better. If you're looking at the Aspire as a fun to drive commuter, you wouldn't be disappointed. Sure, it's no Figo S that darts into corners with agility, but it's quite quick to turn in. As long as you aren't overzealous with the throttle, it'll hold its line through the corners too. The steering setup was never a bother with the Aspire, and you can expect more of the same with the update. Talking about its service and spare parts availability, it depends on the availability of service centers in your locality. Do take a test drive in order to clear all your doubts.

Hi, it is best in class in considering the power it gives is better than others. Service cost is in between 5 to 6K including E.oil and other small parts.
Honda Amaze diesel CVT will be a better pick here in terms of engine refinement, NVH level. Whereas, Ford Aspire gets 3-cylinder petrol engine due to which it has high NVH level as compare to Honda Amaze.
Ford Aspire is equipped with 1194cc Petrol and 1498cc Diesel which produces 120Nm and 215Nm torque respectively. Also, Ford engines are very much reliable and give an outstanding performance because of its built and quality.Considering these factors and brand you would face no challenge while going for long drives that too non stop.Moreover, we'd recommend taking a test drive of the car for a better insight into the performance, comfort, and compatibility.
