The XUV is something that really shook up the market, most of the other cars in the list are not VFM at the price point where conveniences are part of OEM fitment(top end versions). The vehicle is something you can be proud of, unlike the T twins which feel about 2 decades old(interiors), Mahindra is one company that can be trusted to improve and evolve their products, Scorpio being a prime example. The problem areas will be handled and this will be unchallenged for quite some time, Tata will never manage a rollout like this, their service will always be a problem for upmarket consumers.

Voted for XUV 5OO right away. On second thoughts, considered even Skoda Rapid, but that remained THAt: second thoughts, vote firmly in bank for XUV, as GTO puts it: the real game changer. No car comes close to this on this count. Another plus: "INDIAN".

One Test-Drive of the 5OO and all the homework done over last several months went to the dogs .

Had never imagined a vehicle of this size would behave so well on road. I had practiclaly decided for "No Tata, No Mahindra. Ever!" and in just 30 minutes of seeing the vehicle in person, it blew away all those resolutions.

This one vehicle has the potential to redifine the indian automobile landscape. Not only is it giving complex to other SUVs, it is taking the fight to every vehicle from C and C+ Sedan segments.

Seriously, there has been no new launches as extraordinary as the XUV5oo. The feature laden, justifiably priced SUV has been lapped up in no times for the value it offers.
IMO this is one vehicle which offers maximum value for it's price across all the segments for the price it sells for now.
For me, there's no runners up. None of the other new launches come close to it.
Although, I wish and hope for the new fiesta to be succesful, but on the second thought , i would rate SKODA RAPID to be the distant second.

XUV 5OO all the way for its sheer value for money preposition! I dont think any other launch comes close to the one offered by Mahindra!

Voted for XUV5OO for all the obvious reasons already mentioned by GTO. I would always vote for a game changer in any COTY survey. XUV has shaken and stirred all the competition between the 10-20 lacs MUV/SUV segments. Kudos to Mahindra.

My vote goes for the XUV500, which is the first time i bothered to watch the live unveiling of a vehicle. IMO, this is a vehicle with a lot of potential, and also reflects on Mahindra's aspiration to tap the premium segment of customers. Save for that disastrous front-end, the vehicle design is fine, and the features it packs are VFM. Fingers crossed on the reliability part and the quality of after-sales, though.

In second place, it would be the Verna for me -> A car i would put my money on, for being loaded with features, and a beautiful design to look at.

XUV all the way for the way it has changed its entire segment by offering features not present in cars 10L above it. Close second was Hyundai Verna for a smashing combination of style, safety, features and VFM factor.

Voted for XUV500

How about Team-BHP releasing a sticker

"You are following Car of The Year 2011
Awarded by
TEAM-BHP"

That will carry more value than some Motorworld periodicals.

I thought that there will be some fight from other cars like Swift but its XUV 500 all the way. Others are way behind ... I Also voted for same though

Truly its a great car from great manufacturer at a great price. Mahindra should not increase the price in near time. It will kill some other foreign cars like Fortuner, Endy, Yeti etc. It will also eat some share of sedans as well. Hats of to Mahindra for XUV 500.

Now first car is finalized. Should we have a poll for second car now

For me it was between the Brio and the XUV 5OO, but with that wonderful price tag it had to be the Mahindra. I think we can already confidently pronounce the XUV as the winner of this poll...
