Safety is top notch and maintenance costs are as low as 35 paise per km over 1,00,000km. We kid you not!
Given that the Aspire’s resale value isn’t too high, less run used examples can be had for as low as Rs 4-5 lac post negotiations. This makes a pre-owned Aspire an excellent deal for those looking at a well-built and safe sedan that can be had at the price of a small hatchback. A used Aspire thus is aimed at enthusiasts who value safety, features and driving pleasure over other parameters. Most of these buyers understand the strengths of a Ford car and this includes extremely low service costs.ASPIRE average around Rs 5,56,750 in Delhi-NCR with lower end tending to be around Rs 4,41,625 and upper end tending to be around Rs 5,75,000..The higher end of the range will get you ASPIRE which is 7 years old while if you veer towards the minimum, then you will have to contend with ETIOS which is 3 years old.

Since your budget is tight, you are likely to want a specimen that does not cost too much to maintain.So, we applied filters that address both the initial and subsequent price Under 6 lakhs to arrive at our list.
Recommendation #1: Ford Figo Aspire 1.5 Titanium+ Diesel
Year: 2015 / Kms Driven: 62,115 / List Price: Rs 390,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 825,000
This entry, which comes at a discount of 53% to its original price is 4 years old and has done 62,115 Kms. Currently with its first owner, this ASPIRE comes with a diesel powerplant. Initial batch of vehicles faced an issue with the headlamp
reflectors melting away too early. Likewise, check for excessive oil consumption or jerkiness in the automatic variant, specially when the car starts from a standstill. So check for these, and if all ‘OK’ then you have a very good deal.
Recommendation #2: Ford Figo Aspire 1.2 Titanium Petrol
Year: 2017 / Kms Driven: 25,873 / List Price: Rs 450,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 663,000
This entry, which comes at a discount of 32% to its original price is 2 years old and has done 25,873 Kms. Currently with its first owner, this coloured ASPIRE comes with a petrol powerplant. There has been one official recall of the Aspire and this was regarding the Battery Monitoring System (BMS) wiring harness installation.
It was for Aspire models made between Sep 2017 and April 2019. So check if the owner got the problem fixed. Otherwise, you have a very lightly used car for less than the price of a new Wagon R!
Recommendation #3: Ford Figo Aspire 1.2 Titanium Petrol
Year: 2017 / Kms Driven: 42,918 / List Price: Rs 470,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 663,000
This entry, which comes at a discount of 29% to its original price is 2 years old and has done 42,918 Kms. Currently with its first owner, this coloured ASPIRE comes with a petrol powerplant. Prett similar to the deal above, so go for it if you missed the first one.
Recommendation #4: Ford Figo Aspire 1.2 Trend Petrol
Year: 2015 / Kms Driven: 35,342 / List Price: Rs 380,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 577,000
This entry, which comes at a discount of 34% to its original price is 4 years old and has done 35,342 Kms. This petrol-powered, ASPIRE is currently with its first owner. Another less used car for ‘Alto” type price-what’s not to like!
Recommendation #5: Ford Figo Aspire 1.2 Trend Petrol
Year: 2015 / Kms Driven: 58,211 / List Price: Rs 380,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 577,000
This entry, which comes at a discount of 34% to its original price is 4 years old and has done 58,211 Kms. Currently with its first owner, this coloured ASPIRE comes with a petrol powerplant. A somewhat more used car than the previous entry but at the same price. So maybe negotiate the price a bit.
The median price at which ASPIRE has typically sold has been around Rs 4,95,000, and in Delhi-NCR, that price has been around Rs 5,56,750.
Since the final selling price data is not available, we estimate the actual selling prices to be 5-10% lower than this. Another tip: the most popular that gets bought and sold in Delhi-NCR in the Compact Sedan category is Maruti Suzuki Dzire.
