No Off Roading, Bad Back, SUV, Comfortable ride. ?! I fail to understand the equation. For a bad back a comfortable ride is important, but for high seating a SUV is Not. Look at alternates with high seating. Innova is the best for comfort and high seating. But friends you have to step up and sit on the seat. I would suggest look at a car where you neither step up nor step down/in. A Fusion makes sense IMO.

Is there a list rule that it should be called Tuscon instead of Tucson?

Just curious. It doesn't matter, since I don't have anything useful to say about either.
People pronounce it TUC-SON. When in reality it should be pronounced Too-sawn. Named after a river in the States, I guess.

Before you put down your money, please check the underthigh support offered and whether you feel comfortable over long-ish distances. You may be pampering your back but make sure your legs are not neglected in the bargain.

with your budget of about 9 lakhs, why done you look at a new Safari EX. the seating position, suspension and interior space are far better than the Pajero- pajero has better cornerning ability but then you want a plush ride more than dynamics, and nothing pampers your back like the seats of the Safari!

This is slightly off topic, But then now what about your Audi if you cant travel a lot in low cars? Try the Safari. The Pajero has an old old suspensions and you wont be off roading anyways.

I suggest you test drive a few SUVs and MUVs on your daily route and decide on one.

Actually Tucson is city in Arizona. About 100 miles south of Phoenix, the state capital.

Why not look at a Captiva 2wd diesel w/ warranty remaining? Looks like you want some kind of SUV and not a minivan.

Fusion is a great car (or whatever it is) when it comes to ingress/egress and ergos. I suggested it to my dad but like most people he couldn't think beyond its looks.

why not try the safari 2.2. But if you are stuck on to pajero vs tuscon, and since you are not too much into offroading, suggest go for tuscon. Newer model than the pajero, better creature comforts than the pajero.

Wouldnt an Optra Magnum diesel be a option, if comfort is a criteria.

Default Mitusbishi Montero for now

Am using the Mitsubishi Montero for now, borrowed from a friend, till I tide over the reccession & buy my own.

Nice & comfortable, serves the purpose well.

I also bought a Swift, but that is another story !!




Cheers

I quite liked the fusion, BUT my wife would walk out if I bought one , so I might want to consider it !! LOL LOL
