Overrated cars:

1. All Hondas (in spite of the higher pricing, lesser features, and particularly knowing that Hondas sell at much lower prices elsewhere in the planet!!)
2. All Toyota models - Camry in Particular, quite obscene price for its worth.

Underrated cars:

1. Palio 1.2/1.6 (as mentioned right through the thread)
2. Baleno (absolutely nothing wrong with it but had to be replaced!),
3. Cedia (Don't see many on the road),
4. Sonata (In the "Indian Context of speeds, FE and Lifestyles, I see it is better VFM than Accord, Camry, Skoda Octavia / Laura, Teana)

Agree. Except for Sonata's garish looks its a great car.

That's a strange conclusion, you should visit Prof.Sam's English thread.

If ever there was a "properly" rated car, its the Safari. Its never tried to oversell or undersell itself.

Mine and online mine personal opinion :

Palio 1.6 / Safari are the most under-rated
Honda City/Honda CRV most over-rated

Hi friends, i think u all forgot Fiat UNO, i drove it for long. its a e.g of auto engineering. u cant judge a car just bcoz of its shape. Palio is also her sister in same category.

Overrated : Definatly Zen. I dont know what people are getting out of it.
