Ford Figo Aspire Diesel Test Drive Review

Plus Points   Negatives
Stunning looks (looks even bigger than fiesta from some angles)   Cheap build quality compared to figo
     
Really a head turner. i have seen some of the two wheelers and cars slow down to see the new AVATAR   Engine not feels refined compared to other fords, more noisy. it feels like working in its maximum capacity. not as relaxed as figo.
     
Powerful engine. Eliminates the need of frequent gear shift   Looks bigger but feels lighter. Does not feels like planted on road as figo
     
Slick and shorter gear lever   Both bumpers r useless in practical. in a collision it directly impacts on body front end of bonnet and back end of boots top edge hits first. could be more expensive to repair
     
Higher ground clearance in number perspective   Reduced sheet metal guage to reduce weight. clearly evident in boot. it feels like made of tin sheets, u can bend it with just a finger. It uses two really big springs to reduce the impact when closing. Difficult to maintain the perfect shape in long run.
     
Good all around visibility as in figo. Thinner A pillars   Doors closing with a weird sound. Missing that thud of other fords.
     
Softer suspension and steering - Easy to Drive in   Biege interior is a dirt magnet. not practical (it is not exact beige as in pictures. more like an orange in color).
     
Boot is big enough   Plastic quality in console and top end of the dashboard looks very cheap
     
Lots of technology everywhere   Automatic climate control is good but figos circular centre ac vents are better than aspires oval shaped vents
     
Ford My key, Automatic climate control, 6 airbags, sync, keyless entry etc.   Electronic power steering is lighter but lacks the feel of figos hydraulic one
     
Music system is good enough as in figo   Front seats still r not comfortable as its rivals. Rear seats thigh support reduced than figo, maybe to improve leg space
     
Unlike figo rear windows rolls down completely and all are powered.   Position change of indicator and wiper controls again confuses existing ford users
     
Ford dock saves a HUGE amount in buying a mobile holder   Despite being a bigger car, still uses same 14" wheels. no 15" even in titanium+. using a plastic cover inside the wheel arches, preventing us from using bigger wheels as it is placed lower. chances to scrap the plastic.
     
More child parts than figo for expected lower maintenance costs (800 parts compared to 240 of figo as per the Ford officials)   No rubber beedings in doors, Only one beeding is covering the entire area in the body. A small one placed only in the top portion, may be to prevent water invading, dont think the NVH levels improved
     
    174 mm ground clearance is not very useful when it is five on board. bcoz of the softer suspension the car sits very low to ground when carrying five

Jealous much pal. Old figo is so lethargic and that steering is very tiresome.Not it say it looked plain ugly.
