Overview

Overview


The Fusion is a very unconventional mix of a hatchback, SUV & MPV, with chunky styling, a high up driving position, good space and an innovative interior. It comes with 195/60 R-15 tubeless tyres, and while we feel the tyre profile maybe too low to cushion the occupants from our roads, the Fusion's ground clearance of 195mm (15mm better than the Ikon) will tame even the largest speed breakers. There's lot of glass area so there are no big blind spots, and you get a panoramic view out of the wide windscreen. The 1.6L petrol engine is a hoot to drive while the 1.4L TDCi motor offers good mileage that the petrol engine lacks. The handling is acceptable and the ride is fine. It is a very expensive hatchback which has created a niche segment for itself. The interiors are luxurious, warm and inviting. It has an appealing, easy- to- decipher instrumental panel, plenty of storage options, plush seating and innumerable convenience features. Its high ground clearance, a fine-tuned suspension, and excellent turning and cornering capabilities make the Fusion a nimble and fun car to drive.

The other thrilling features that this car give are its leather finished steering wheel and gear knob, height adjustable drivers seat, relaxes position of pedals, power windows (both Front & Rear Door). The 1.6 petrol unit had gray interiors whereas the 1.4 TDCi Diesel unit had beige ones. The biege one was a bit soilt, as expected but then it looked better than the gray one. The rear seats were also a perfect thing even with the front ones pushed all the way back. Having a higher roof line here helps as also the fact that the rear floor is flat.
