The fog lamps get a blue highlight to them and the alloy wheels will be finished in a neat black colour. The interiors will also get leather-wrapped steering, push-button start/stop, rear parking sensors and USB slots. Though the car is fitted with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, it will miss out on the Sync 3 system which has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and is available with the Titanium+ trim.
The car gets dual front airbags, unlike the range-topping Titanium+ trim which comes with 6 airbags. It also misses out on auto-headlamps and rain-sensing wipers. The car comes with ABS with EBD as standard. The Ford Aspire Blu will come with a five-year or 100,000 KM warranty, which includes 2-year factory warranty and 3-year extended warranty.
Ford Aspire Blu edition will be powered by a three-cylinder, 1.2-litre, TiVCT petrol engine that produces 95 BHP and 120 Nm of torque. This petrol engine has a claimed fuel efficiency of 20.4 km/l. The Blu edition is also available with a 1.5-litre TDCi engine that churns out 99 BHP and 215 Nm of torque and has a claimed fuel efficiency of 25.5 km/l.
The Titanium+ variant is priced at a mere Rs. 20,000/- premium over the Aspire Blu edition and the former comes with more convenience and safety features. For people who want their Aspire to look sporty and off-beat, they should go with the Blu edition otherwise the Titanium+ trim is better value for money.
