Ford Aspire Facelift Will Launch on 4th Oct 2018
Brace yourselves, people, because the brand new Ford Aspire 2018 is all slated to grace us! After its launch in countries like Brazil and South Africa, Ford has finally decided to launch its much awaited Ford Aspire Facelift 2018 variant in the Indian market on the 4th of October 2018. The slight difference in the appearance of this sedan variant of the Figo is that in the other countries it was launched, it is a little longer than the sub-4m version that is being launched in India. However, in terms of styling, both these variants appear to be similar.
