Are there any performace issues in Ford Figo Aspire petrol model?
I was planning to buy a compact sedan around 8 lakhs. Found Aspire among the lot attractive and was almost about to buy it, but heard from reviews that the 1.2l t engine of ford has some torque issues, so that the pulling power of the engine is a big question mark, which is not the case for the diesel engine. But since I am opting for a petrol engine, kindly advice can I stick with ford aspire or go on with Swift Dzire?
The issues regarding the low torque output of the Ford Figo Aspire are baseless as the car produces only 3 NM less than the Swift Dzire, but also being 50 kg heavier than its rival. The values are odd but the car manages to perform the same with its 3.5 BHP more power output than the Swift Dzire. It also comes with class leading features, which are missing from the Maruti's bestseller. The Figo Aspire comes with 6 airbags whereas the Dzire has front 2 airbags only. Aspire comes with a bigger boot and more features than all the other competitors. The car comes with a price tag of INR 7,24,990. If you still fell that the power is less, you can go for the dual clutch automatic variant with 1.5 L petrol motor, producing 110.5 BHP and 136 NM of torque. It comes with a price tag of INR 7,79,990.
