Ford India has just launched the CNG version of their compact-sedan, the Aspire. The new Ford Aspire CNG is available on the Ambiente and Trend Plus variants; priced at Rs 6.27 lakh and 7.12 lakh. Both prices are ex-showroom (Delhi).
The CNG compatible version of the Ford Aspire comes with the latest sequential technology, which ensures a smooth driving experience. The CNG kit on the Aspire is integrated with the car's ECU (Engine Control Unit), allowing for an optimised gas flow to each cylinder. The Ford Aspire CNG variant also comes with specially engineered elements. This includes a front stabiliser bar to compensate for the additional weight of the CNG gas cylinder.
Vinay Raina, Executive Director - Marketing, Sales and Service, Ford India, stated, "The new Aspire CNG is yet another fuel-efficient and eco-friendly alternative for our value conscious customers." He further added, "With maintenance cost as low as just 46 paise per km, the New Aspire CNG will offer great peace of mind to customers, without compromising on performance, safety or space."
In addition to the new CNG kit, the Ford Aspire will also come with the lowest cost of ownership. Ford is offering the CNG-powered compact-sedan with a standard two-year or 1,00,000km warranty. The CNG-powered Ford Aspire will also come with long scheduled service intervals of either one-year or 10,000km. Also, owners will be required to get their CNG kits serviced every two-years or at 20,000km.
Apart from these changes, everything else on the compact-sedan remains the same. The CNG-powered Aspire will receive the same list of features as seen on the standard Ambiente and Trend Plus variants — read our detailed review of the Ford Aspire here.
Some of the features on the Ford Aspire include a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite navigation, automatic air-conditioners, remote central locking and power windows; among others.
