Default Which car has the best in-car entertainment system ?

In your opinion, which car is the segment leader in in-car infotainment system in its respective segment ?

Lets do the segmenting by price-band :

1. 1L-3L
2. 3L-6L
3. 6L-10L
4. 10L-20L
5. 20L-30L
6. 30L+

So, you can choose upto 6 cars, one each for the above categories. Many cars in lower price-band may not have factory-fitted entertainment system. For these cars, you may give your opinion based on the quality (and availability) of information (like trip-meter, odometer, clock etc.) that they provide to the driver.

Here are my 2 cents

1. 1L-3L- No idea
2. 3L-6L- i20 by far, I think
3. 6L-10L- New city perhaps?
4. 10L-20L- Outlander
5. 20L-30L- No idea
6. 30L- Porsche Cayenne with the Bose System!

Are you talking about the stock system that comes in the car ? Not much difference between the cars.

It's the Outlander in this segment without a doubt.

May be. Depends on person to person. If it were me, I would be pretty satified with what the Captiva has to offer. I have not listened to Outlander. Have you heard the Captiva ?

6L-10L : Fiesta is not bad. Without sub woofer, the stock system (6 speakers - 4+2)has got good sound and clarity.
Thanks

3L-6L: i20
30L+: Only heard the Aston Martin DB9 by Linn - that was rather good for a stock system IMHO

The stock system on civic is very good. But I haven't have any experience with other vehicles of this price range.

Does the indica vista anniversary edition have Bluetooth connectivity - that allows you to make phone calls?

I checked with the showroom floks and they dint seem to have a clue - also I couldn't locate the USB slot.

I have booked the car nevertheless - just hope that it does have it

Owners - Pl. confirm.

Thanks.
