wolfinstein, question was about over/under rated car in india, not in T-BHP.

I knw, T-BHP just loves it Palio's and Baleno's...But not going by the popular note, I feel the Baleno has lived its prime and all those who say that the engine performance is better and so...Not necessarily...VTEC-VGIS-INVECS are not only performance enhancers but also pullers, Honda VTEC was a damn good model compared with Plain Honda City..!
I feel its Over rated now that you have much better options available..!
The Baleno- Lancer have all Lived their Prime...! IMHO.

i dont think the baleno ever lived its prime..
according to me under rated cars would be - baleno , mondeo , palio ( due to bad after sales service ) , contessa (?? . sorry i just love that car )

over rated ... scorpio ( i hate that red colour ) , new honda city . ( basically the cars i dont like )

Vtec now costs near 9L... INVEX too is expensive... VGIS is not at all performance oriented (have driven the VGIS optra)....

But, at 5.5L on- road price... Suggest a car with more performance, please...

Well, Verna , Fiesta , Aveo are all cars with almost equal performance compared to the Baleno. ( More or less around 5.5 Base or more but I would still rate them in the price range), The logic as said by you then should promote the Maruti 800 as the Best in its class since it gives you AC, Steering Wheel, 800 cc engine for 2 Lakhs, Performance and Price do go together but, Outdated Performance at that Price does not make sense...I understand that Maruti Simply waited to long to Get the Upgrade of the Baleno, In all likely hood I would love to see a Baleno back into the Corolla-Lancer-Optra class rather than fight it out with Junior Saloons.
Now Technically, You might say that these cars have low torque or Lower Engine powers compared to a Baleno, But these are much more of the selling kinds now, Plus I always felt Baleno never got its due credit back then when it was in a Top Notch with Lancer, Honda City.

I would say that car was never rated. It is such a fantastic car that people have just looked through this one. probably the pricing did it in.
