New Ford Aspire vs Honda Amaze vs Maruti Suzuki Dzire spec comparison

Let’s face it. Ford has always done the follow up game in India. Be it with the compact hatchback or other segments. This time around, after they received flak for the not-so high feature list of the Aspire, the company has got a facelifted model. The new Ford Aspire not only has all the features that you will want from your compact sedan but it also is priced lower. By lower, we not only mean the outgoing model but also its competitors.

The new Ford Aspire competition includes the Honda Amaze and the segment leader, the Maruti Dzire. There is also competition from the Hyundai Xcent, Volkswagen Ameo as well as Tata Tigor. However, these sell in comparatively lower numbers than the Amaze and Dzire. Come to think of it, in this triplet, the new Ford Aspire is still an odd ball. That is because it doesn’t have a diesel automatic yet. However, the one up deal here is that the petrol automatic is the most powerful option one can order in the sub-4m segment. There are six airbags, ABS with EBD, traction control, Hill Hold Assist, ESP and more. This and more details have been presented in the specification comparison chart below.
