but why is there no ABS even as an option on Fusion D ? I would have chosen this vehicle if it was with ABS but now a definite NO NO as I know the consequences of a high speed braking going bad for a vehicle of this size.

Also, I feel the interior quality is gone a notch down compared to the older Fusions, please give your valuable feedback on this.

Getz D is the way to go... in space, comfort and power it beats the others out right....

my vote goes like this
1. getz crdi for performance and space
2. ford fusion for space and engine refinement and offcourse it needs petes
3. swift d is a good diesel car with revvy engine but lacks space and rattles
fusion has lesser space than Getz.

I would rate it as :

Getz D ( Its the same engine as Verna CRDI)
Swift D
Fusion D ( Its the same engine as Fiesta, probably the best in NVH levels)

i disagree. fusion is a whole size bigger than both the swift and the getz. in fact, the cabin feels more spacey than than the fiesta, which is why i bought the fusion.

I vote for Getz D because its best all rounder and practical.

Fusion come next followed by Swift.

I know Swift D will win big time in this poll because of its cheap price for which we give first priority while buying, but be prepared to face lot of niggles and uncomfortable/in practical ride for ever.

Only few units of Swift come with no issues so this indicates pathetic quality by MUL.

If they had priced Getz lesser than Swift it would have sold as hot cake in india.

Regards,

Ravi.

Getz is more fun to drive,rides well,handles indian roads better than swift.

I wish ABS was offered.
