I agree with many guys here that Fiat Palio (or even Petra) as the most underrated car. Next place probably goes to Baleno.
I think the most overrated is Honda City/ Scorpio.

The crown for the most underated car has to go to the Palio especially 1.6 i wish that fuel in our country was a more cheaper , had it been that way she wouldn't be amongst the under rated..

Having driven the Petra for two months, I have to say that it is perhaps, the most under-rated car in India.
The Scorpio is extremely over-rated. It rolls like crazy at every twitch of the steering wheel, and I fail to understand how so many people fancy it so much.

Over rated - > OPTRA
Under rated -> BALENO (though it looks ugly , its got potential under the hood)

The most under rated cars in my opinion are the
Baleno - For the current price. it is a steal
Fusion - The price has been brought down. Maybe a further price decrease can help, but it is a really good car
Indigo - I beleive this a value for money sedan, but very little talked about.

Most Over rated cars
Scorpio - Handling and space can be better.
Swift - It is a good car - but too much hype around it.

Most over-rated in India: Swift/Old Zen

Both OK cars, though.

Most under-rated in India: Getz

Good solid car, at least as good as Swift, but not hyped enough.

Most over-rated cars in T-BHP: Palio/Baleno

No need to say anything here.

Most under-rated car in T-BHP: Santro.

Far too many Hyundai haters in T-BHP? Although I think with arrival of Verna, that may be changing.
