Well i will disagree.....this is quite a degrading remark,overrated is another thing but saying its for poultry is absolutely not a smart thing to say.It handles well for a tall boy has a responsive engine,adequate space for four,safety features such as ABS and airbags as an option,what else is required from a cheap and light on pocket hatch?

Indica Vista is underrated. You have to drive the quadrajet once to know how much of a leap it is... if only its brakes were better... *sigh*

I guess there is no point in considering old cars such as Palio, Baleno etc as under-rated now, infact, Baleno is even discontinued, Palio is in its last stride, hence not relevant on this day. Cedia can also be probably added to this list.

In my view, the most under-rated drivers car of today is Ford Fiesta 1.6, which for some reason doesn't bring out its due passion even in this beloved forum of ours like that of a Palio 1.6, Baleno or old Honda City, hence again, Palio 1.6 or Baleno is not at all under-rated.

Over-rated certainly is the ANHC as well as to some extent Fiat Linea, though both may not show purely in terms of numbers sold. Fiat Linea with its current engines is definitely over-rated and so is the Skoda Fabia.

Mr.grvanand IMHO we should discuss cars that are under-rated in our country and not those which are overated/underrated by team bhp members.As for baleno,palio and cedia there is no harm including them even if they are discontinued or are going to be discontinued soon.Cedia particularly just got a facelift so it bein discontinued is still a distant possibility.
