I got to drive it for say, just around 300 mts, and its great! powerful, and the features are great inside. Memory Seats, rear windscreen sun curtain is electric powered! that was awesome, press of a button and the sun screen comes up! its very spacious too! the looks are also jus great!

but the price is a big letdown!
U know the reason why superb and camry are expensive compared to Accord so its upto Hyundai to decide whether they want to make money out of it or just be a show watcher like camry selling 1/5th of Accord a month.

That is true. The car does compete with Accord in terms of Price. But, size/specs wise it is a bigger car in the Avalon class. Since Hyundai screwed up their reputation with terrible cars in the US years ago, now they're paying the price. For example a top of the line Sonata V6 LX will cost less than the new Camry I4 SE and a low end Sonata I4 costs only slightly more to a high end Corolla. I wish we would see some prices like that in India!

Camry is way too overpriced and I dont care whether it starts with A B C D or T coz it makes no sense paying 23 for that car . I hope they dont make the same mistake with the new Accord ....and to an extent what you had said is right coz even in the case of Terracn it was the badge that was the actual problem . If only they had made a premium brand like Acura or Infinity ...

The Mazda 6 - It has more oomph and style than an Accord or Camry. Sportier Setup - economical and is a drivers car. Price it at 14 lakhs and it will really shake things up in the D segment. And being a FoMoCo product - have that dealer network sell and service it. And if they really want to kick things up a notch bring in the Mazda 3 Speed - I'll let the numbers talk:

4 Door Hot Hatch
6 Speed
2.3L Turbo Charged Engine
264 HP
280 LBft Torque
Price: 9Lakhs (Without Taxes and Duty)
Electronically Limited Top Speed - 250Kph

I would love to see the Honda Pilot and the Honda Odyssey on Indian roads. What an impression they leave on the roads here in the US ! Esp the Honda Pilot. Just love its stunning and robust looks.
