Ford India has just launched the new Aspire facelift in India that will see competition from the new Tata Tigor facelift in the coming days. After the launch of the new Ford Aspire facelift, Tata Motors decided to mock the new Aspire and announced the launch date of the new Tigor in style. The company has released a teaser video of the new Tigor facelift and the starting of the video is what that will surely catch your attention. The video starts with the words 'Don't just Aspire'. While at first, even if you try to ignore the fact that Tata is mocking Ford with the statement, take a look at the font with which 'Aspire' is written and you will be forced to change your mind. On taking a closer look at the letter 'A' in the word Aspire in the teaser video, you will notice that it gets a hint of F from Ford's logo. While such advertising rivalry is common among luxury brands and is happening since decades, we wait in anticipation and are eager to see if Ford comes up with an equally witty reply.

Now Tata Tigor and Ford Aspire even though being in the same sub-compact sedan space are two very different cars and caters to a different set of customers. The new 2018 Aspire is more fun-to-drive and a dynamic vehicle with more safety features. On the other hand, Tata Tigor is aimed at masses and is a bit less premium than the Ford Aspire. The new 2018 Ford Aspire also gets a larger touchscreen infotainment system that now supports Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The top-variant also supports Ford Sync-3 system and gets as many as 6-airbags for enhanced safety.
