Definitely very competitive pricing IMO

489990 - 7.8L for Petrol Variants

Diesel Variant starts from 589990

As Anurag Mehrotra said during the price launch, it is indeed surprising.

Finally after two shocking prices from Hyundai and Maruti, we have a pleasant surprise from Ford !! An already fantastic car just got much better with brilliant prices!

And with airbags as standard, asking anything more from Ford would just be greed

I think we have a winner from Ford now and I expect to see around 8k units from the Aspire, while the Dezire remains unaffected as always !

At these prices the AT with Titanium+ option is still a very good option. Strange that the AT does not get the option of 6 airbags and Sync at these competitive prices.

Excellent pricing by Ford. Only disappointment is the absence of ABS on Trend variant. Titanium variant is perfect for most needs. With Titanium+ offering 6 Airbags. Many cars in the above segment too dont offer it!

Here is the feature build up in short:

Ambiente-
Guide me home headlamps
manual Air conditioning
tilt Steering
Front power windows
MID unit showing gear shift indicator, Distance to Empty, Maintenance Warning, door ajar warning, low fuel warning, water temperature light and auto door function

Trend (Along with Ambiente Features)
Audio system with Radio, AUX, USB and Bluetooth
All 4-power windows
MyFord Dock Unit
2 Line MFD Screen

Titanium
Rear Defogger
Automatic climate control
ORVMs with integrated blinkers
Perimeter alarm
Height Adjustable front seats
Driver Seatbelt Reminder

Titanium+
Leather upholstery
4.2 MFD screen for the infotainment system
Ford's SYNC with voice control
Applink System

Ford has done it again .Hope it will sell like Ecosport. It is clear that Ford has learnt the lession very well which Honda didn't when it launched the all new Jazz

As I said before, this is just superb pricing by Ford. The Aspire looks good, is powerful, should be reasonably fuel-efficient too, comes with an optional automatic variant (a proper Dual Clutch Transmission at that!), offers two airbags as standard across the range and still undercuts the competition when it comes to pricing. Okay, the Zest is priced lesser but its not setting the sales chart on fire anyway.

The Aspire deserves to sell well. Good job Ford!

This is going to be another winner from the stables of the Blue Oval!

What a stunning price tag! Not only is it easily the safest car in its class, it's also got the highest power-to-weight ratios (for the diesel MT & petrol AT) in its class. And now it turns out to be the most value-for-money offering in its class.

Ford India, take a bow!

Unlike some manufacturers who demand shockingly high premiums for the diesel variants, Ford are charging only one lac rupees more for the 100 PS 1.5 TDCi (over the 88 PS 1.2 Ti-VCT).

This is going to shake up the sub-4m sedan segment for good!

Fantastic, Ford!!!

This, probably is the best pricing I've seen in recent times. We've got to appreciate Ford for making dual front airbags as standard; That sure made a positive impression that they care about passenger safety.

Sensible pricing from Ford. Now only if they don't do an Ecosport on the interested.

Time to change my sisters mind from the Polo 1.2 manual to the Aspire.
