I thought Fusion and Palios had drive by wire technology...That is for the accelarator and nothing to do with the clutch, right ? (apologies for my ignorance!)

I doubt the Santro and Swift comes with a hydraulic clutch. It is Cable as far as I know.

The Scorpio also has a Hydraulic clutch.

(at least to a small extent??)

Before all that, in 1986, the humble Trax introduced hydraulic clutch in India due to their getting the license for OM616 and TX-17 ZF tranny which only takes OEM MB clutch which is hydraulic, mechanical clutches are history due to their being too hard, specially on high power engines with heavy pressure plates, although I would admit, mechanical clutches have better feedback and easier to take abuse. Even on my VFJ Jonga, VFJ had to mod the original Nissan finger clutch to a hydraulic pressure plate diaphragm type due to the HINO engine's low end torque.

Default Its a matter of playing it safe.

Have you all noticed that majority of cars if not all have fluid operated brakes. Cable does not give you any warning at all before it fails unless you are lucky enough to have slowly shredding brake wire, if at all, like the ones used in motor cycles. Even bikes are now adopting fluid brakes especially in the front as fluid leaks give you ample warning before it completely fails.

As far as heavy vehicles are concerned everyone without exception use fluid actuated brakes.( Gases are fluids too)
The fluid reservoir is usually the same for the brake system and the clutch circuit and hence you will be forwarned by the dash light in case of low fluid for both like in the FIAT group of cars.

In the not too distant future the only cable operated part of the car could be the bonnet, petrol flap and boot release and the hand brake system.
Bye and wear your seat belts.

Just to confirm, the iKON has a hydraulic clutch (dan thought it was cable operated in this thread). In fact, the service advisor told me all Ford's in India have hydraulic clutches.

The only trouble i have with Hydraulic Clutches is that they need they seem heavy all the time and need good lubrication for 'you to be happy'.

Hey guys do you know anything or any person about converting from cable clutch to hydraulic clutch. I drive Logan Diesel and that have a cable clutch, which is hardest among all, risk for knees.

Let me know if you anyone in Delhi, Gurgaon who can convert to hydraulic.
