I drive about 500-700km a month and currently drive a Fiat Palio petrol thatâ€™s 12 yearsÂ old. Iâ€™m buying a new car and decided to test drive the Ford Aspire. The 1.2 petrol variantÂ felt dull and wasnâ€™t what I expected. The diesel in comparison was better but I wasÂ suggested to consider the Fiesta. The car looks better and is about Rs 2 lakh moreÂ expensive than the Aspire. Which car should I go for?
We agree that the diesel Figo Aspire has a lot more character and is more fun to driveÂ when compared to the petrol 1.2. In fact, the diesel is the quickest car in the segment andÂ also offers impressive fuel efficiency and driveability. The Fiesta also offers the sameÂ engine but the Aspire gets a revised unit with additional power and better fuel efficiency.Â The Fiesta may get this motor too and we suggest you wait till then. For the additionalÂ money, you will get a car that offers better styling, more space and impressive dynamics.
