Its very difficult to get a substitute for the fusion!!its almost a perfect car for India.the jazz is the one that comes closest but is much more pricey, less power and does not have the ground clearance of the fusion.

But on the other hand, you get a car which will have a better resale, more reliable and fuel-efficient

A replacement of fusion can not be anything less than SUV or MUV. Anything else will pinch on GC and front visibility. SX4 will provide similar fun, but its in petrol

My Suggestion is to go with a Fiat Linea, the good buy in the market right now...

I think he can consider the Chevy Aveo, the Chevy SRV, Hyundai Verna, Renault Logan and Indigo XL. All these hae good space and comfortable interiors.

Infractions: 0/1 (5)

my suggestions for Fusion Replacement:

1. Fusion + TDCI - superb
2. SX4 Diesel ZDI (if avble) - great (even better if they come with a Hatch Version)
3. Scorpio Refresh SLE
4. Or else simply wait for the Skoda Yeti

Other than these choices from the crop of vehicles available in India, any other vehicle will end up making you feel a bit let down - largely in terms of GC, solidity, comfort, utility and peppy enough Diesel power with reasonable FE.

There is no Mitsubishi model similar to Fusion.
My friend currently owns a Ford Fusion Petrol and wants to replace it. He is looking for a car with similar space but does not want to go for a SUV.
Look no beyond Jazz - its perfect for your friend's need. It matches all your friend's requirement & offers more

How will Linea satisfy the requirement mentioned?
