Ford Aspire Blu Likely To Resemble Figo Blu

  • May 08, 2019

Ford Motor Company, the US multinational automobile manufacturer, is planning to introduce a ‘Blu’ version of the Aspire compact sedan. The company had earlier launched the Figo Blu in March which is a sportier version of the earlier model. The Figo Blu, as the name suggests, has inside-out blue colour inserts which set the car apart from its other variants.

The Aspire Blu was recently spotted at a Ford dealership. The car has blue inserts on the body decals and the exterior. It has black-finished alloy wheels like the Figo Blu. The blue-themed inserts are also visible on the doors.

The Ford Aspire Blu is likely to retain the same powertrain seen on its other versions. The petrol Aspire is hauled by a 1.2-litre engine which produces 96PS maximum power and 102Nm peak torque. The diesel model, on the other hand, is hauled by a 1.5-litre engine which outputs 100PS maximum power and 215Nm peak torque. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed manual gear system. The Aspire is also available in a 1.5-litre petrol motor which outputs 123PS maximum power and 150Nm peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission in the Titanium model. The 1.5-litre petrol engine, however, is unlikely to be fitted to the Aspire Blu.

The features of the Aspire Blu are expected to be different from the Figo Blu. The car spotted seems to have a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system similar to the top-end models of the Figo. The Ford Aspire Blu may share its features with the Titanium variant.

The Aspire is currently available in the Titanium, Titanium+, Trend, Trend+, and the Ambiente variants. The price ranges from INR5.81 to INR9.96 lakh. The Aspire Blu is expected to command a marginal premium over the Titanium model which has an ex-showroom price of INR7.26 lakh and INR8.06 lakh for the petrol and diesel vehicles respectively.
