    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    You know, it would have been just super if FoA could have dipped into the Mondeo parts bin for the FG-X, just for some things to freshen the interior a bit. Funky interior is funky.

    Are they bringing the Hybrid out of the States? If they're not, they're fucking stupid.

    The Hybrid woul be a HUGE way of setting it apart from the Accord/Mazda/Malibu/etc. A diesel is just not seen as being as green as a Hybrid.

    Also, if they're going against Camry, will they have stock? Ford are going to get a big shock once Falcon is gone if they can't get stock of vehicles. This should be being built in Thailand with the Fiesta/Focus etc, so stock is a couple of weeks away, not a couple of months.

    Still love the way the Fusion looks though.
    I'm in love with my car. Got a feel for my automobile.

    Very very nice looking. Really shows how much the game has moved on. Ok so our Falcon is a lot more basic, we alteast get a turbo I6 and blown V8 to play with.

    As long as its price competitive and marketed If Camry/Aurion keeps outselling that there's no hope....

    Youssef's Fish Mouth suits very well on this.
    White looks great.

    There was a nice blue (similar to blueprint ) wagon at the Fox Studios gig sitting on 19's ? looked tuff tbh.
    Not for me - but the wife won't mind it neither would Damo.

    Great looking car, and full of tech.
    Our current '11 TDCi Mondeo is a fantastic car, and I've grown to like it far more than I did our FGII XR6.

    If I was in the market for a new car, I'd be waiting out for this.

    And yep, looks far better than FGX. The lower air dam flows into the grill, instead of clashing with it, for starters.
    I can't get around to liking the FGX looks... None of it flows. It's terrible.

    So you have seen both in real life?
