Idea is good but I guess Ford is not sure about Fusion's success in India. They have got a setback already with the ultra-poor sales of Fusion, now if the revamped Fusion does well, then only there would be any chance of Fusion TDCi. Sometimes I think this is the last try to make Fusion get going.

Price it about 4.99 L and I think Ford has a winner in the segment and a serious threat to the Indigo. What say ?

Your views?
So at last they listened to your views!!!

Aren't you going to ask for some consultation fee ;-)

1)Its a reality now.
2)Let wait and see.
