One of the most important companion for a trip is the vehicle we drive in…and one which gives great look and great mileage is what I would call an ideal car! Being passionate about 4 wheelers and driven a variety of them already…from luxury to the basic ones….some self-owned, some borrowed from family and friends…This time I had to drive down to Punjab to visit a relative and I picked up Ford Aspire for the trip! The Ford Aspire has a very satisfying design when compared to its closest rivals and the vehicle has been on my hitlist for a while.
We started from Delhi at 5 AM in the morning and reached Panipat at 6 AM where we stopped at a local dhaba for breakfast. The Ford Aspire did make for a great support and was the centre of attraction when we stopped. Dressed in red…it made heads turn!! After our breakfast stop, it was time for us to continue our smooth drive.
With a great design and a host of features – black coloured outside rear view mirrors, body-coloured front & rear bumpers, fabric seat upholstery, adjustable front & rear headrests, 12V power point at front, Chrome head-lamp bezel, Dual tone (charcoal black + light oak) interior, Manual AC, Tilt steering, Front power windows, Guide me home headlamps, Keyless Entry, Engine Immobliser, Driver side power window with one touch up & display and Driver & front passenger airbags…the vehicle has all that’s required for a perfect drive! Whether it’s a long drive to the hills or a short one to work 😉
The compact sedan also has Smart Storage….no we are not talking about extra space which we obviously long for but smarter space…yes from smart phones we are moving to smart space – storage bin with a coin holder and anti skid mats for mobile phones. Yes, these are some functional requirements which are generally missed out by a lot of car manufacturers and we loved that Ford Aspire took care of even the minutest details. The Interior Styling is not only luxurious but spacious as well. The comfortable leather seats give you a plush feeling, with spacious front and rear seats with adjustable headrests giving ample space and comfort to the driver and co-passengers.
The Ford Figo Aspire is a comfortable car to drive around and is one of the well-composed models in its segment. The electric power assisted steering in the Ford Aspire gets fairly light and easy to turn in cities for quick manoeuvres. In about 4 hours of smooth drive, we reached our destination!! Oh! Did I tell you about the Boot Space which made space for our entire luggage so that we comfortably enjoy our ride!
Available in seven colours-Ruby Red, Sparkling Gold, Oxford White, Tuxedo Black, Deep Impact Blue, Ingot Silver and Smoke Grey…it has all the features required by today’s GenX.
