I could not see when I tried in the IOS app. Logged into TBHP site and could see the options and was able to vote. Try using the website.

Voted for Kwid. Was in dilemma between Kwid and Creta was an option I was thinking but went with Kwid primarily because of below reasons.

1. New SUV'ish design on a entry level car.
2. Priced attractively and is a direct competition for Alto. Looking at the bookings it sure will give tough competition to Alto.
3. Good legroom and also comes with touchscreen ICE!

I see the apprehension on few people in forum with regards to it winning the COTY here as it lacks safety equipment's . Risking repetition from my view, Kwid has given a good option for people planning their first car on a budget. Better styling, better legroom, better suspension and definitely better interiors than its competition and all these at a similar price point! Safety has not stopped people from buying Alto or Ion has it!

Cool re: Team-BHP Car of the Year, 2015. EDIT: It's the Renault Kwid!

I have voted for the Baleno. Following are the points on which my decision is based:

1. I firmly believe the product as a whole must be rated which includes the pricing. (This was one prime reason the Creta lost out). The Baleno is spot on here.
2. The engine of the Baleno is good and peppy.
3. The car looks elegant and polished. Looks "rich".
4. Security aspect is taken care, since ABS and Airbags are standard.

Kwid is a game changer. People did not have a desirable option in the entry segment. Alto i a old work horse which can get the job done really well but people needed something a bit more aspirational. Credit must be given to Renault for developing a car which is a size bigger than Alto yet weighs 50 kilos less. The looks are smashing, the car has excellent road presence, boasts great fuel efficiency and is as spacious as some of the cars from a segment above. I want Renault to give it a 1 litre engine option to rival the K10.

Number of votes post the Moderator reminder significantly increased and hence I was waiting for a new trend to emerge prior to uploading a voting trend.

Team-BHP Car of the Year, 2015. EDIT: It's the Renault Kwid!-coty.jpg

1. Kwid still number 1 but has lost 201bps since last time. However, with the limited time and almost 150 votes difference, it might just about make it.
2. Creta has maintained its vote share (+38bps) but with Kwid falling, you never know!
3. Baleno has cemented 3rd place by maintaining vote share (+35bps).
4. Ford twins have lost 100bps and are losing steam to Baleno for 3rd.

"Others" have picked up 234bps lead by the S-Cross and TUV3OO.

Also, an image is attached showcasing our friendly moderators votes - Kwid is leading by a fair margin here as well!Name:  mods coty.jpg

Vote goes to KWID. The value package it offers takes the segment forward. Hopefully the leaders will learn and offer more than just 4 wheels for the budget segment. Safety wise, I would want to see more but the leading manufacturers will have to show the way.

My vote goes to the BALENO. It is perhaps the best hatchback design i have ever seen in this era and both the 1.2l petrol and 1.3l diesel are outstanding along with Suzuki's proven reliability and Maruti Suzuki's phenomenal service network. I could not help noticing the suspension was a tad rigid though.

Voted for Kwid, Saw the car couple of days back and it sure looks very chunky and neat! Would have surely voted for the creta only if was a little bigger in its dimensions.

Met a friend & fellow T-BHP-ian yesterday and was looking at his Punto again. That tank like build quality !! More than reinforced my views about the Kwid that I had put up earlier.


Going by some of the responses here - there are votes just by the look of the car .. like it were a "best looking care of the year" award !
Some merit that ..

5-6 days left, and with the number of total votes - the current lead trend not likely to change. If the voting had been in 100's then this 150 odd difference would have been under threat. Let's remember that people will vote both ways - if there are votes for the Creta, then there will be votes for the Kwid too .. :(

I voted for the Creta . It has got everything going right for it, if the overpriced aspect is taken out of the picture. The Hyundai brand name and network are sturdy pillars for this product to achieve good sales through reassurance, the product itself has a nice fit and finish. It is very refined, has decent equipment, is adequately powered and has all the bits of a mini urban SUV which can be a nice allrounder for most buyers' needs. Not to forget, for Hyundai this is one of the few products that has met so much success northwards of the 15L price tag
