Voted for the Kite 5 sedan. Who'd have thought that the best looking CS would come from our very own TATA! The creators of the CS class had to come to the rescue! I hope this along with the Nexon and Hexa turns the fortunes for the company as they deserve it.

Heartening to see all the 3 cars-Kite 5, Hexa and Nexon garnering maximum votes as of now!

Clean design with straight lines and no flashy things are my choice when it comes to the cars. So no doubt it has to be from the Volkswagen stable and my choice will be VW Tiguan.

Folks, I never ever have considered a TATA vehicle (even if they offered their cars at 50% discount). I am now looking for a car.

If you put the Breeza and Nexon in the market today, I will pay premium to buy the Nexon. Even the Kite 5 is a handsome (or beautiful) car.

Awesome Tata!! Proud!!

Has to be Nexon, Hands down for me.

I hope this product will let people get that brand value back on Tata motors.

Nothing but TATA (voted for Nexon), didn't think I will be saying that so soon
Really kudos to TATA and their design team for making clean yet attractive designs in todays world.

Most of the cars we had already seen on the net or in International markets, Tata Kite 5 was a surprise to me. I would vote her as she brought the 'I want you I need you' feeling instantly, something that Vitara Brezza also couldn't do

VW, please take some crash course from Tata on designing a good sub-4 meter car..

Voted for the Tata Kite 5 sedan. Its well thought out and looks clean inside out. And brilliant when you consider the segment its going into.

Maybe its a coincidence, but after acquiring JLR, Tata designs have started to come of age. Maybe just names of legends like Ian Callum is enough to inspire a brand. Well done Tata!

I don't think so. The design is very confusing on the Nexon. I like to believe its just a concept.

had dilemma between hexa, nexon and kite. Voted for hexa. Just did not like the 2 tone on nexon.
But winner can be any one of the three.. all are equally well designed.

Yep, Tata Nexon it is, for me too. It had to be either the Nexon or the Kite 5. Although, I am not quite sure about the two ceramic strip across the body, the specs and the interior design clinched it for the Nexon.

Although I might end up buying most likely Nexon or possibly Brezza, I voted for Kite 5. Such a tremendous job to fit under 4m with such clean lines. Well done Tata.

Now bring Nexon soon to the market please.

We are looking to replace my dad's innova and mom's wagon R this year so the car that wowed me the most was the Hyundai i30, since it is not listed voted for the innova.

Sad that the i30 will not make it to India would have been a superb upgrade from the Wagon R. Looks like will have to settle with the Ecosport AT.

Although all these 'Wanna-be' cars are a big no no for me. Still The Nexon looks amazingly propotionate and a futuristic SUV!! Bring it on TATA with the 2.2 diesel with AWD and I am sold!

The choices were between Kite 5, Nexon and Hexa but at last chose Kite 5 because it is the most beautiful compact sedan out there now and one of the best (clean, proportionate and a bit understated) designs from Tata stable.

I like the Nexon design and I personally think they should not tone it down - a bit of quirkiness will be well received by the market, if the product is good.

Hexa is a looker for sure, but since I have seen the car earlier on Team BHP, I knew what to expect.

Before Tata unleashed the trio, my choice was Brezza - it is the best looking Maruti out there now and I am sure it will set the sales charts ablaze. This car have the potential to do 8K-10K per month sales and will be a nightmare for the competitors.
