Great to see the Tata Hexa running neck to neck behind the latest talk-of-the-town the Suzuki Vitara Brezza. Even more when you consider that it is essentially a redesigned Aria.

It is like Sunny Deol competing with a Hritik Roshan.

Was my choice in this poll, but did not expect it to fare so well in terms of appealing on the design front.

From the other end of the country, expeerience only via Team-BHP, I have voted for the Toyota Innova Crysta.

It is a car that I would never, afford it or not, dream of buying, I don't have need or requirement for big-car space or image --- which makes my Wow reaction even more extreme. I don't care so much about the exterior design, although I have nothing against it, but the transformation of the interior is just amazing. I take my hat off to Toyota!

The Innova Crysta and the Brezza were clearly the highlights in this Expo. The Brezza even more as it was a first time unveil in India. We pretty much knew everything about the Innova Crysta.

One of the most interesting stalls with cars that impressed was the Tata stall with 2 cars mainly.

The Kite 5 is the best execution of the compact sedan to date. The idea of using a notch back design (the boot works like a normal sedan) rather than putting an odd box at the back is clearly the way to go. I mentioned this in the other thread on the VW Ameo as well. Tata have done exactly what I think the CS segment should be i.e. notchback.

The VW stall opposite with the Ameo just looked boxy compared to the Kite 5.

Then it was the Nexon concept. Closer to production this time around, they have again done a wonderful job with the styling. The interiors also looked very nice. The Ecosport design got mixed reactions, the Brezza looks very good but clearly safe so as to not offend anyone whereas the Nexon is good looking.

I voted for the Nexon but the Brezza was close and so was the Kite 5.

Special mention to the Isuzu D-Max V-cross. What a brilliant package. If priced well, this will appeal to a lot of enthusiasts.

Between Nexon and Hexa selected the Nexon as it is all new.

Tucson and BRV were also considered by me.

Good to see 3 TATAs in top 4

Now TATA don't mess up pricing.

Voted for Tata Nexon but was actually a tie with the other Tata too, Kite 5!

Kite 5 is definitely a looker (the best CS in the country) but had to choose Nexon after reading the specs, 110bhp with 1.5L Diesel or 1.2L Turbocharged petrol is surely mouthwatering.

Bring it early Tata!

Voted for the Tiguan purely for the quality of its finish. Tata Nexon feels overdone and the final version on the road might be nothing like what is displayed here. Kite S has a nice boot integration but the wheels are puny in comparison to the body.

Voted for Tata Hexa. Loved all the butch looking designs of Tata viz. Hexa, Nexon & Kite S. Was very positively surprised from design of sub 4 meter Kite S. Other manufacturers should learn a thing or two from them. Off late Tata has been designing very good cars. Its high time it should start reflecting in their sales figure.

Perfectly said - this car looks anything but like it's competition including it's in-house Zest. I sincerely hope that this sets a new trend in the sub-4m sedans category and we move away from quirks such as Dzire, etc.

I voted for the XUV Aero primarily because I was literally "wowed" by the design and engine rather than practicality. Taking that away, my vote was for the Kite5 hands down.

If only TATA can rectify their ASS and niggles, their next breed of cars (Zica, Kite5, Nexon, Hexa) has the potential to take it to the top 3-4 manufacturers of the country doing consistently over 20k units monthly.

Good luck to them and good for the consumers who will benefit from this competition!

Like many, I am torn between Tata Nexon and Kite5 and voted for Nexon.
I am eagerly waiting for it to be released for production and also hoping that Tata gets it right.

Voted for Brezza.

Tata did surprised with Kite 5 as the boot integration was done brilliantly as we don't get a feeling that it is a sub 4 meter sedan. But I think Brezza would be my Swift replacement after seeing the horror show[read Duster].

Hexa came out as the big luxury car for big families.

Third row had very good legspace and bootspace was also pretty generous even with all seats in place. Overall quality of interiors was better than Aria. IMO, the wheel size could be +1 or +2 for better proportions.

Why most manufacturers avoid mentioning Ground Clearance at the Expo?!

Not sure why we do not have a thread dedicated to Nexon@Auto Expo 2016, in spite of being one of the stars of the auto sxpo.
Awaiting a new thread on Nexon!

Tata has 3 cars in top 4 as of today - taking 56% of total vote polled. Very very good show by Tata Motors. We 3 people are waiting for Nexon

My vote goes to Ssangyong Tivoli.

Reason:
1. Read a lot of good reviews in UK about the vehicle and surely will be a big competition for Creta and Duster.
2. 115ps e-XDi160 diesel engine. Hope Mahindra will disappoint us with changing the "Home Grown" powerless 85 3 cylinder engine.
3. Offered in 4X4.
4. Hope pricing will be competitive to Duster. As the export price of the Tivoli is 8.5 Lac (Read it on the Forum).
5. Finally I LOV IT (TI VOL I)

I was seriously bowled over by Hyundai Carlino but would buy Brezza if given a chance.
Tata Hexa was close second and Nexon was third on my list.
