Ford has taken its time to update its compact sedan, the Aspire. And it is finally available for pre-booking in Nepal. It looks more grown up now, what with its more sophisticated headlight and grille combo. Ford has used a lot more bling in the nose, and with the lower part of the chin finished in black, the new Aspire looks sportier too. Also new are the petrol engines and gearbox options. The previous 88hp, 1.2-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine has been replaced with the new 96hp, 1.2-litre, three-cylinder ‘Dragon’ petrol engine; first seen on the Freestyle. While this engine packs more power, Ford also claims it is more efficient by 2.24kpl; a considerable amount. The major change on the inside is the addition of the 6.5-inch touchscreen with the Ford Sync 3 system on the top-of-the-line Titanium+ cars. The Aspire’s cabin is as practical as ever, especially up front. The door pockets are very accommodating and are smartly designed to hold bottles of all sizes; the glovebox is massive and there’s even a nicely executed stowage area between the seats where you can keep all sorts of odds and ends.
