guys,

was in belapur today afternoon and saw a brand new FUSION. Metallic brown shade mh04 regstrn.

the car wasnt being tested by any auto magazine. it was driven by a portly executive types.

The car has very good street presence , much better than the getz. the 15 inch tyres look good and the car looks amazing from front straight on.

sorry guys no pic , was busy oogling at it.

will snoop around in belapur.. power freak where are you pal....u r needed for this mission



cheers

saw the car in tukey
looked a bit slab sided but much better than getz which for some reason looks a bit outdated -the front end.
the car is going to be launched in october so lets spectaculate about the pricing....
maybe a comparo about the gtz vs fusion vs ikon...
which is the t-bhp favorite as an OVERALL car ( not only power )

Fusion seems quite appropriate for Indian conditions. 195 mm ground clearance and 195 mm tubeless tyres on 15 inch rim and sturdy body sound like its coming to tame the indian roads. I hope its priced reasonable and its FE is better than the Ikon. Wish they give some colors too and not just grey and silver.
