Ford Endeavour for me. The car looks like the way it is supposed to look and yet doesn't compromise on the quality and features. In this era of cost-cutting it is refreshing to see a product that's high on quality and it is affordable too.

Toyota Innova Crysta for me.

Initial launch photos and info did say that the car is bigger than the outgoing one. Have seen it couple of times on the road and does look the fact. I like it though. There have been a few issues that I read in the review here, something about misplacement of buttons. But that does not really matter to me for what we get at the price. The ride quality especially, it will always be top notch in it.

I don't know what crazy following Innova has. Right from the beginning when it was priced at around 10 lac and then the price kept on climbing as new variants came by but the sales did not dip. Hats off to Toyota for pulling the rabbit out of the hat yet again!

Its Tiago from Tata. Most BHPians have already covered the points which I wanted to say.
There are better products out there like the BR-V, Ameo, Vitara Brezza but none of them have managed to get the manufacturer out of danger (well, to some extent) and instill faith in the brand once again.

On a side note, If Mahindra had improved the quality and range of their four door EV and priced a little less, I would have voted her.

I voted for the Tiago. I feel it's the best car till date the has come from the Tatas. It's one of the most vfm and complete car; available today in the market from the common man's perspective.

Voted for the Tata Tiago.

If it does become TBhp's COTY 2016, it will surely help improve Tata's image in the market. Whenever I tell someone to check out a Tata, the same old dialog "Tata ka gaadi kaun lega" comes up, I want to see this mind-set changing, Tata Motors is trying very hard to improve in all aspects and it deserves to be appreciated for the same. The Tiago and Hexa are proof.

Many TBhpians have voted and written really great stuff about the Tiago, I really hope that the general public after reading these posts change their views towards Tata.

Tata keep up the good work, you'll are going great, all the best for Hexa (price it to kill the competition).

Contenders from my POV - Tiago, Brezza, Endeavour, Superb

All 4 came as a nice pleasant surprise.
Tiago - After original Sierra and Safari, never thought Tatas would come out with a car that would be so visually appealing. Looks very fresh and not a 50th rehash of the Indica moulds.

Brezza - Maruti has always meant boring small cars for me. S-Cross changed that perception a bit, but on the looks and size front, it was still nothing to write home about. Then Brezza.... finally a car from Maruti that genuinely looks good , very contemporary and is a well-rounded overall package (mileage, price, safety, dynamics).

Endeavour - What a transformation this one has been! From a bulky old-school wrestler coming from a village to a suave well-groomed urban body-builder! Loved the latest iteration of the Endeavour. First real contender challenging the undisputed king. Would love to own a Endy one day.

Superb - Just like the Endeavour, never really liked the previous gen Superb. But, the current one is absolutely droolworthy. Design can not get any sharper than this in this segment. Luxury personified. Hope I can afford a Superb one day.

I didn't vote for COTY based on what I will consider buying next. My vote is based on what car and what manufacturer has pushed the envelope and come out with something amazing. Endy and Suberb are more 'evolutionary' from that perspective. Was very tempted to vote for Tiago, but my final vote goes to the Brezza...first car from Maruti that is a head-turner.

Been expecting this thread. Thanks.

Voted for Tiago. Reasons below.

1. Realistic pricing. Reviving the hope of owning a real good quality car for the average Indian family at affordable price.
2. Value for money. Curbing the trend of exorbitant pricing of automobiles. A ray of hope in it's own way.
3. Really good quality and good to have factors at the entry level hatchback
4. A company's honest effort to comeback and no compromise on quality
5. Finally, that fantastic audio system!

I have voted for the Tata Tiago.
Reasons:
1. Departure from that boring egg shell silhouette of the indica
2. First good looking hatchback from Tata
3. Value for Money
4. Overall product quality
5. Fuel efficient engines
6. Tata loyalty, yes, I have a soft corner for Tatas, having owned 5 of them so far.
7. It is a potential game changer for Tata Motors. I have suggested Tiago to a couple of my friends who have bought it and are extremely happy with their choice.

My vote goes for the mighty Endeavour!
About time we had a true blue American blooded full sized SUV in our market!
The sheer size and physical presence is not only mind boggling but an absolute attention magnet and a head turner on our streets.
Ford has had a pretty well year with the current Endeavour showing better sales than its predecessor.
The beast would have been parked in my parking lot in the Sunset Red shade if only did I have the funds to own this magnificent beast.

Tiago is my choice!

The car is a proof of what a struggling manufacturer with passion and a commitment to strike back can do! And what an effort it has been by Tata Motors! Kudos to them!

A fantastic value package, offering best in class features, classy interiors, mind blowing infotainment system, comfy ride quality and lastly, adorable designing. Just can't stop drooling over the headlamps design!

Brezza is just a Swift on steroids. Nothing great offered by MS. Even Ameo is just an extended Polo!

Voted for Tiago!!

It's one of the best cars from Tata stable. My cousin has got Tiago petrol top model. It's around a lakh costlier than Renault Kwid, but worth it. Good fit and finish and loaded with features. I hope the long term reliability would be good.

I dont think this statement is necessary here. By your logic, Creta is an i20 elite on steroids and an ecosport is a figo on steroids?

Yes, Ameo is an extended polo, so as Dzire is an extended swift and Xcent is an extended Grand i10.

When nothing great is being offered in brezza by Maruti Suzuki, isnt it surprising they are selling 10,000 copies of it every month?

If everyone starts critizising the cars in the list, rather than justifying their choice, I think this thread will end up in chaos.

Tough competition but I have voted for the V cross. I feel the tuck is VFM and has given a push to a segment which is finding it hard to please the private buyers.

Next choice would be Tiago followed by Brezza.

Tiago it is. This is the inflexion point for Tata Motors and I believe they will not look back now. In fact I'll stick my neck out and declare Nexon to win the next year's car of the year award.
The other contender was the Mustang, tugs at your childhood fantasies. If only I could save enough to own and maintain one.

The homegrown Tata Tiago is emerging as the winner as on date. Its good going for Tata Motors. They have also bagged a major Army order for the Safari Storme to be supplied to the forces.

Can wish Tata Motors well and good going under the new management. Ratan Tata may be again proving lucky for Tata Motors. As an Indian, I would like to see an Indian company topping the sales charts and emerging as the no. 1 or 2 carmaker in India.
