New Ford Aspire Review: Better Equipped, Better Value for Money

Image result for New Ford Aspire Review: Better Equipped, Better Value for MoneyEver since Ford came out with the Aspire, the car has managed to create an identity for itself which is of being a good driver’s car. But then there were a few features that the car could have used. Now, though, seems like Ford has heard to their customers as they have now come out with the new Aspire that not only gets new features but also new styling. But does that mean it is better value for money than before? Let’s find out.

Let’s start with the way the new Aspire looks. The biggest visual update is the redesigned front-end. The Aspire gets a new grille design which sports ample out of chrome for the chrome-lovers out there and the fog lamp enclosures now extend into the bumper to give it a c-shape design and yes, gets the chrome treatment as well. The headlamps have been smoked out and even they get a chrome element inside!

Coming to the back of the car, the thick chrome strip that runs across the width of the boot lid remains the same as the earlier model whereas the rear bumper has been redesigned. Look closer and you will notice that the tail lights get new detailing.

As for the side profile, well, it still has that muscular and strong shoulder line which is now complemented by new 15-inch alloy wheels.

Overall, the car looks fresh and more up to date. However, there is no LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), projector headlamps or LED tail lights on offer even in the top-spec variant, which is something that the competing cars in this segment do come with. Is it a deal breaker? and does it make that much of a difference? Not at all, but it is something that would have been nice to have.

Moving on to the inside of the car and the first thing that you will notice is that the cabin has the familiar Ford layout. The build quality is great and so is the quality of materials used – something that Ford is known for.

Gone are the leather seats making way for the new fabric seats that have better bolstering. There is enough room for passengers all around the cabin but the car surprisingly does not have a rear AC vent or a charging port for the rear passengers which is a big miss.

Add to that the absence of cup holders in the rear armrest and no bottle holders in the rear doors which is a bit surprising, to be honest.

The Aspire’s saving grace, though, is the new touchscreen infotainment system.

We drove the top-spec variant which actually gets a smaller 6.5-inch screen as opposed to a 7-inch screen that the lower variants get, but it offers the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support which the lower variants don’t. There are also two USB ports placed in the centre console and the car gets the usual Bluetooth connectivity along with steering mounted controls. The outside rearview mirrors can now be operated electronically and I absolutely loved the rotary knobs for the volume and aircon controls which feel premium.

But coming to the infotainment system, it gets Ford’s SYNC 3 technology and simply put – this is the best infotainment system in the compact sedan segment in India right now. The touch response is simply fantastic and there’s also a reverse parking camera that the new Aspire gets.

Then, there’s the addition of automatic headlamps and rain sensing vipers as well.

So yes, the new touchscreen infotainment system is the highlight of the cabin but what I really liked was the driving ergonomics that the car has to offer. Especially the chunky steering wheel which is just fantastic to hold.

And this isn’t that big of a surprise. Ford cars are known for being great at driving and it is applicable on the new Aspire as well. The other thing that Fords are known for is safety, and the Aspire offers that by offering dual airbags and ABS as standard across variants. The top-spec variant of the Aspire comes with six airbags around the cabin.

The unit we tested came powered with the 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine which was first seen on the Ford Freestyle and it gets the same state of tune in the Aspire as well. The engine makes 96 PS of power at a sky-high 6,500 RPM and 120 Nm of torque at 4,250 RPM. This engine is peppy and when you drive it down low in the RPM range, it is calm and composed like a well-behaved child. But, go past the 3,000 RPM mark and you are greeted with a throaty exhaust note and the car pulls ahead like a cat who is afraid of water, has just been in the water.

The gear throws are short and crisp and the drivetrain feels just so engaging to shift through.

Ford, Ford Aspire, Aspire, Ford Aspire ReviewWe drove the manual-gearbox equipped variant of the new Ford Aspire and the drivetrain was a delight. (Photo: News18.com)

That’s not it, the chassis is so good that it makes you believe that it can take much more power. And the driving feedback from the steering wheel and the brakes makes the car feel sublime. Yes, the ride quality is a bit harsh at low speeds but it just keeps getting better and better as the speeds climb.

This is a proper driver’s car.

Ford, Ford Aspire, Aspire, Ford Aspire ReviewThe new Ford Aspire gets new 15-inch alloy wheels. (Photo: News18.com)

Last but not least, the price. The new Ford Aspire is actually cheaper than the old Ford Aspire. And with that, it also undercuts the starting price of the Hyundai Xcent, Honda Amaze as well as the new Maruti Suzuki Dzire making it a sweeter deal than ever before.

So to sum up the new Aspire’s experience. Well, if you’re in the market looking for a compact sedan then you might be looking for things like efficiency or practicality, but if you’re looking out for driving dynamics, then the new Aspire is something that we definitely recommend.

Acer Aspire E5-575G Review

Acer Aspire E5-575G Review

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The E5-575G features an M.2 SSD and an Nvidia GTX 950M GPU
  • Multimedia performance is good but the build quality and display aren’t
  • The Acer Aspire E5-575G is priced at Rs. 59,990

Acer is largely perceived as a value-for-money brand here in India. The company does offer a diverse range of high-end products, including gaming laptops like the Predator 15, Ultrabooks like the Aspire S13, and many more that should hit store shelves soon.

Today, we’ll be testing one from the Aspire E range, which is designed for everyday computing and a bit of multimedia work. The Aspire E5-575G is the higher-end model from the series, and features an SSD and a dedicated GPU, giving it a bit of gaming potential. Let’s see if it manages strike a good balance between performance and price.

Design and build
Acer’s E-series has never been about aesthetics, but looking at Dell and Lenovo’s current budget offerings, we feel it’s high time it stepped up its game. This particular model is being sold predominantly in offline stores, where it would be very easy to miss due to its subdued looks. The all-black unit is built mostly of plastic, except for the palm rest area which is metal. Acer has tried to spruce up the look of this laptop with textured plastic for the lid and base, but it doesn’t really help the cause too much. It’s put together well, but just doesn’t look or feel the part.

The glossy 15.6-inch display has a low resolution of 1366×768, which causes visible jaggedness in text and icons. Thankfully, colour banding isn’t much of an issue but vertical viewing angles aren’t great, leaving you with a narrow sweet spot. The colour gamut also isn’t very wide so when you turn the brightness up, whites tend to bloom, which is very distracting. The plastic frame flexes easily too, and the hinge doesn’t seem very strong, making the lid flap about when there’s any movement.

For connectivity, there are two USB 3.0 ports, one USB Type-C port, HDMI, VGA, LAN, USB 2.0, a headphones and microphone combo socket, and a DVD burner. That pretty much covers all the standards you’ll need. Placement could have been better, as the two USB 3.0 ports and HDMI port are too close to each other, which is an issue if you have an odd-sized HDMI cable or large USB drive. There’s a large exhaust vent on the left of the laptop. The intake vents are on the bottom, along with stereo speakers that fire downwards. The rubber feet don’t offer much elevation so it’s easy to block the speakers if the laptop isn’t on a flat surface.

The Aspire E5-575G has a full-sized keyboard although the Num pad is a bit smaller than the rest of the keys. The alphanumeric keys are well spaced out and are quiet when typing. They feel a bit mushy but it’s not too bad overall. There is a bit of flex in the keyboard area but it’s only an issue if you hammer away while typing. There’s a massive trackpad which works well with Windows 10 gestures, and its buttons that don’t require too much effort. It tends to get in the way while typing though since it’s a bit too much to the left.

Specifications and features
The SKU that we received (E5-757G-78VT) had a Core i7-6500U, which we’ve seen in lots of top-end Ultrabooks, along with 16GB of RAM (2×8), a 1TB hard drive, a 128GB M.2 SSD, and an Nvidia GTX 950M with 2GB of GDDR5 memory. There’s also an HD webcam, Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth, and a 6-cell battery. The specifications are really hard to beat at this price point, and this is one of the reasons that makes this laptop a a very interesting choice.

Acer also provides a hatch on the bottom for quick upgrades. You can easily access the RAM slots, SSD and hard drive bay, which enthusiasts will appreciate. You get Windows 10 Home 64-bit along with the usual suite of apps from Acer. There’s abFiles and abPhoto for Acer’s BYOC (Build You Own Cloud) feature; Acer Care Centre; Quick Access; and Recovery Management. Other pre-installed software includes CyberLink PowerDVD 12, Foxit PDF viewer, McAfee LiveSafe, and a bunch of free Windows apps.

Performance
The first thing you’ll want to do here is get rid of any apps that you aren’t going to use regularly as they just occupy precious space on the SSD. Booting and applications loading is generally quick, thanks to the SSD and large amount of RAM. The laptop also runs pretty cool for general use due to its low-voltage CPU and the fact that the Nvidia GPU isn’t in use all the time. The left palm rest area gets a bit warn when gaming, but other than that, we didn’t face any issues.

The Aspire E5-575G puts on a good show in benchmarks too. PCMark 8 returned 3611, 4026, 3251 in the Home, Creative and Work test suites. These CPU scores are comparable to those of most high-end Ultrabooks, but the E5 edges them out in the graphics department thanks to the beefier GPU. For instance, in the Cinebench R15 OpenGL test, the Acer put out 78fps, while Intel’s integrated GPU outputs around 45fps. The same is reflected in 3DMark Fire Strike too, where we got 3211 points.

The laptop handles most games well. In Battlefield 4, we got an average of 43fps with the Ultra preset while in FarCry 4, we got similar results, averaging about 40fps with the Ultra preset. The low native resolution is the primary reason for the good framerates even in heavy games. The quality of the display is a problem as well, as the bloom effect is very distracting and ruins details in games as well as movies. It is mostly noticeable when the brightness is bumped up above 70 percent.

Audio through the speakers gets fairly loud and you can tweak the settings through Realtek’s control panel. The speakers sound best when the laptop is placed on a flat surface as sound can be reflected, whereas it will get muffled with it on your lap.

The 6-cell battery lasted us through roughly 6-7 hours of continuous usage, which involved Web surfing, watching videos, and a bit of editing work on Google Docs. In PCMark’s battery test, the laptop managed around 4 hours. Overall, you can expect decent battery life as long you stick to light tasks.

Verdict
The Acer Aspire E5-575G costs Rs. 59,990 and is available in retail stores across the country. If you look at it purely from a specifications standpoint, it’s a good bargain as it’s tough to find anything else that matches it at around this price segment. However, Acer has compromised in other key areas in order to achieve this value proposition, which is plain to see in terms of build quality, design, and the display. If these things matter to you, then you might want to consider other options.

For a bit more money, you can get one of the new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series or even Lenovo’s Ideapad 510 series; both of which feature Intel’s 7th Generation Kaby Lake processors and much better designs. Plus, Lenovo’s offerings also give you full-HD IPS panels for a few thousand rupees more, which is definitely worth it. Granted, they might not match the Acer completely in terms of specifications, but for basic multimedia work, they should be more than capable.

The Aspire E5-575G would have gotten our whole-hearted recommendation had Acer paid more attention to the design and display of the laptop. If it’s just specifications you’re after then you’d be hard pressed to find a better deal than this. However, we would give it a pass and compromise a bit on specifications in order to find a laptop with a better display and build quality.

Price: Rs. 59,990

The VW Ameo impresses with its features, layout and pricing
The Amaze has a variety of catching as much as do as compared to competitors
The Figo Aspire makes for a compelling case over the opposite 2 offerings

The sub-4 metre sedan segment might be the quickest developing one currently, in India, and that isbecause of two motives – taxation regulations and client interest. And why is this so? Properly becausethis segment has motors, which offer the middle floor among a hatchback and a full-fledged sedan andthat is why almost each vehicle producer is jumping on this bandwagon; considering its ability. Volkswagen is the present day of the lot, but it’s past due into the section, so it is were given time to do its homework. We were given our fingers on the Ford Figo Aspire and the new Honda Amaze to determineout how Volkswagen’s Ameo fares.

Volkswagen Ameo
The Ameo gets a muscular profile

Looks

All three cars have inherited the circle of relatives look and so that you can see glimpses in their siblings in them. The Figo Aspire comes with the same Aston Martin-ish the front grille, at the same time as the Amaze borrows its appearance from the City sedan and the Ameo Seems more just like the Polo from thefront. however, at the quit of the day, it boils right down to who has put in most efforts, to make itappearance not like a hatch with a boot or a compressed model of a sedan.

Ford Figo Aspire
The Figo Aspire takes concept from bigger Ford vehicles

The benchmark in phrases of Seems, we’re advised, for the Ameo become the Maruti Suzuki Dzire and the Hyundai Xcent; and yes, the Ameo Appears so much higher than both; but it is the Amaze and Figo Aspire that look very proportionate. Although, inside the average Appears department, you’ll ought to answersimply one query; which one might you supply a 2d look to? And that’s whilst the solution is a easy one – the Figo Aspire.

Honda Amaze
the brand new Amaze borrows its look from the Town sedan

Ford has now not simplest managed to get the proportions proper, however has additionally have given the sub-four metre sedan a unique appearance, which makes it attractive. The front grille adds its dash ofattraction, while the lines on either facet don’t appearance overdone. What’s additionally not overdone is the usage of chrome and typical, it Appears quite appropriate. The Ameo is a near 2d, due to the fact,Well, we just like the way the Polo Appears and so sure, it is inherited the good Seems.

Volkswagen Ameo Cabin
The Ameo gets a acquainted cabin at the strains of the Polo and Vento

Cabin Space

The short given to the designers of the Ameo changed into to make a limousine, that’s underneath fourmetres and they‘ve tried their first-rate, but the Space internal is similar to that of the Polo and the rear seat does get a bit cramped for six footers like me. The wheelbase is the same as the Polo and even though you get a higher under thigh assist than the Figo Aspire and the Amaze, the Ameo doesn’t feel as spacious.

Ford Figo Aspire Cabin
The Figo Aspire receives the maximum spacious cabin off all 3

The Amaze meets a comparable destiny And that is because it‘s got the lowest wheelbase of them all. Infact, the determine is the lowest within the section. The Figo Aspire is the most spacious of the lot And that’s no longer handiest because it has the longest wheelbase, however because you sit better too. it’staller than the other two. There is a very good amount of head room and Area too, at the rear seat, forthree adults. What about the boot Area then? With four hundred litres of boot Area, the Amaze is the clearwinner, followed by way of the Figo Aspire with 359 litres and the Ameo with 330 litres.

The Amaze receives the most important boot with a capacity of 400 litres

capabilities

Now, Volkswagen might have not been the the front runner inside the previous two departments,however it’s the long feature listing, along with phase first functions, that make it stand out, while in comparison to the Figo Aspire and the Amaze. The Ameo comes with features, like cruise manipulate,computerized rain sensing wipers, and even anti-pinch power windows. It also gets a rear AC vent or even a front centre armrest, however it is handiest available on the pinnaclequit Highline variation.each the Aspire and the Amaze get not one of the above.

Volksagen has brought several segment first capabilities on the Ameo

The Aspire grabs some factors for the SYNC era; but Honda has caught to the fundamentals, with the Amaze and the normal suspects like a Radio, USB, Aux-In and Bluetooth is all it gets. on the safety the front, the Ameo leads the way again, with dual the front airbags and ABS available as part of populargadget. The Aspire comes with dual airbags, as general, but receives six airbags and ABS within thepinnaclegive up version. in the Amaze, but, they may be part of elective gadget. at the same time asABS with EBD is offered as preferred, on the diesel version, the Amaze petrol does not share such good fortune. The Ameo then wins palms down on this showdown.

Volkswagen Ameo Powertrain
The Ameo may be to begin with supplied simplest with a 1.2-litre petrol engine

Powertrain

The Ameo is currently to be had in only the 1.2-litre petrol engine and it is precise sufficient for 73bhp,however, the Amaze and Aspire are available in each petrol and diesel. We can’t compare theperformance of the 3 because the Amaze and Figo Aspire we introduced had diesel powertrains but we’ve got pushed the petrol siblings earlier and both have the 1.2-litre, four cylinder pot, whereas the Ameoreceives handiest three cylinders. even though the Ameo may not experience as aggressive as the opposite , the guidance feel on this one is sportier due to the fact VW has long gone in for the flat-bottomed one and the brakes have an excellent bite too.

The Figo Aspire gets a soft suspension setup, that is stiff on the Amaze. The Ameo balances Well

The suspension setup at the Amaze is stiffer than the Aspire, at the same time as on the Ameo it feelspretty much right. Using through potholes, you at once be aware how strong the Ameo is and it is bestin the Amaze that you get thrown round a bit And that is entirely because of the stiffer suspension setup. The Ameo, even though is a chunk below powered and has to play capture up with the opposite . Volkswagen has promised that the diesel could be rocket and we cannot wait to peer it launch in Diwali thisyr.

Honda Amaze functions
The cabin Looks upmarket at the Amaze, however receives handiest the necessities

Rate

Volkswagen has made amends to all the ones, who inform them that their vehicles are overpriced. The Ameo undercuts all its competitors (in case you do not forget ex-showroom Mumbai Costs); however theAspire is the only one that comes near beating its Rate, in case you bear in mind the ex-showroom DelhiPrice. The Ameo comes at a beginning Rate of five.24 lakh, going proper as much as 7.05 lakh. The Aspire is inexpensive with the aid of 3000 and it starts at five.21 lakh going right as much as 7.38 lakh, whilstthe Amaze fees everywhere between five.35 to 7.25 lakh (all Prices ex-showroom Delhi).

Volkswagen has delivered the Ameo with a quite competitive Fee tag

It always comes all the way down to the Fee of the car and this time around Volkswagen has hit the nail onthe top and they‘ve sponsored this up with a robust product and a bucket complete of functions. it’s the engine, but that could be a bit of a dampener and this is in which things will trade, as soon as the diesel powertrain is available in. In the mean time even though, as an usual package the Figo Aspire offers arobust case for itself and is actually a automobile really worth recommending. Honda too has performedan amazing activity with the facelift of the Amaze, however has it done sufficient? Well, considering what VW has introduced to the table, with the Ameo, There is lots of catching as much as do for theorganisation.
