Ford Aspire’s body shell integrity is ‘unstable’ states Global NCAP
16 March 2017 - IndianAutosBlog
Global NCAP has released results of the first couple of cars tested under the campaign #SaferCarsForIndia in 2017, one of which was the India-spec Ford Aspire sub-4m sedan.
The Ford Aspire was awarded 3 stars by Global NCAP for adult protection and two stars for child protection. The availability of dual airbags right from the base variant is one of the reasons why the Aspire received 3 stars.
However, it is surprising that NCAP rated the Aspire's body shell integrity 'unstable', given that the first gen Ford Figo hatchback's vehicle structure was rated 'stable'. The latter still scored zero stars due to lack of airbags in the base variant.
