    Some features like music system, power mirrors and rear power windows are missing in this variant to give a good ownership experience. We recommend this variant for budget and value-conscious buyers as the Trend variant isn’t much better in terms of value.

    Is The Trend Variant Of 2020 Ford Aspire Petrol Worth Buying?

    The Trend variant of the 2020 Ford Aspire petrol costs Rs. 6.59 lakh - Rs. 60,000 more than the Ambiente variant. For this sum, you get notable features like:

    • Music system
    • Steering-mounted control
    • Height-adjustable driver seat
    • Rear power windows
    • Power mirrors
    • Boot lamp
    • Central locking
    • Body-colour handles and side mirrors
    • Chrome grille

    While these features do complete the ownership experience, the price difference is so high that we can’t recommend the Trend variant.

    Is The Titanium Variant Of 2020 Ford Aspire Petrol Worth Buying?

    The Titanium variant of the Ford Aspire petrol costs Rs. 7.09 lakh, which is Rs. 50,000 more than the Trend. It adds the following features:

    • Keyless entry with push-button start/stop
    • 7-inch touchscreen
    • 15-inch alloy wheels
    • Rear camera

    These features justify the premium you pay over the Trend variant but they don’t cover up the value gap created by the Trend variant. Moreover, it doesn’t add enough must-have features to earn our top recommendation. It even doesn’t get native Android or iPhone connectivity options. But, it’s certainly a better value for money option than the Trend variant. Now, let’s see if the Titanium Plus variant can beat the VFM ranking of the Ambiente variant.

    • Fog lamps
    • 2 thorax and 2 curtain airbags

    The list of features looks small, but some of these are high-value features and they more than justify the price jump over the Titanium variant. The Aspire is the only B2-segment sedan with 6 airbags and it’s one of the main reasons to buy this car over others.

    Which Variant Of The 2020 Ford Aspire Petrol Offers The Most Value For Money?

    The Ambiente variant feels very basic but the Trend variant is not a value for money upgrade. However, the Trend variant looks like a well-rounded package with a good number of must-have functional features. If you are looking for better value, then consider the Titanium variant instead. Although it doesn’t get enough must-have features to earn our top recommendation.

    The top-spec Titanium Plus variant adds high-value safety features, which are only available in the Aspire and no other B2 segment sedan. It totally justifies the price jump over the other variants and it’s the one you should buy.

    What Are The Engine Specifications Of The 2020 Ford Aspire Petrol?

    The Aspire’s 1.2-litre normal petrol engine was the most powerful petrol engine in its class until recently. But after the addition of Hyundai Aura’s turbo petrol engine, it’s not the most powerful anymore. The Aspire petrol is a distant second in terms of torque as its output of 119Nm is far from the Aura turbo’s 172Nm. In terms of fuel efficiency, the Aspire petrol promises 18.5kmpl. Naturally, Maruti Suzuki Dzire with its hybrid petrol engine wins this fight with a promised figure of 23.26kmpl with the manual transmission and 24.12 with the automatic. Speaking of the automatic transmission, the Aspire is the only B2 segment sedan to not have a 2-pedal option. This is a serious shortcoming against the Aspire as the demand for automatic transmission cars is growing across all segments.
