Compared to exterior, the changes on the interior are much more substantial. The dual tone black and beige continues on the facelift model but the centre console has been completely redesigned.
The current Aspire centre console is clunky with lots of buttons. But the facelift model get 6.5 inch floating touch screen unit with Ford Sync 3 system which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
