Overrated car - ANHC

Underrated car - Fiat Punto

I think both are overrated/underrated only because of the prefix they carry.

Post Over rated and Under rated Cars.

IMHO, most Honda cars are overrated because of their high snob value. I would probably mention City or even Jazz as overrated cars. Most cars are 10%-20% higher priced than they deserve or should have been priced.

Most cars from Chevrolet stable are underrated. One car which immediately comes to my mind is Chevy Spark. It is one of the best small cars currently available in India (in my opinion) and still doesn't command the respect it should.

I totally agree with puneet. All honda's tho have good after sales service, doesnt really excite u with the features on offer.

And the cars from the Fiat stable esp the palio, really didnt get the respect it deserved

IMO i think Ford Fusion is very underrated. I mean it has got great engine, and i liked the design very much when you see it from the back .I wonder why we dont see many Ford Fusions on the road.As for the Most overrated i feel it should be Swift Dzire.I hate the sedan design.

My salts worth :

Underrated - Most Fiat offerings, Forester (for gods sake it was a Subaru), the bygone Baleno, Mitsubishi Cedia, Fiesta S(the numbers haven't set the charts on fire)

Overrated - Some offerings from Honda (ANHC specially despite the fact that its on the top of my list in my hunt for a new sedan), Laura, Jetta, BMW 3 series (?)

The general consensus is entry level offerings of most foreign players are overrated since they offer what they have extinguished in the international market.

I agree with most of the people here.

Overrated: Most Honda cars. They offer less compared to other cars while pricing more than competitors.

Underrated: Fiat Punto and Chevy Spark.

As per me
The most over-rated car: Swift, why? Cause its a good car but the way people have lapped it up, i think they missed out on a better car- Getz.
Also Fiesta- just for fast pick up etc why do people prefer that in the city drive is hard to understand for me coupled with the don't care attitude i saw in Ford( in bangalore)
The most under-rated: any fiat cars esp palio - it was THE best car and suffered too much. In fact i think even now punto and linea are suffering due to the bad service( my personal experience in asking for a TD- still waiting since a week!!)
I think the lancer too has been under rated, wish they still were around and could buy one!( new car)
If i can add to this, the most fairly rated ones are hyundai cars, they sell as much as they are worth i feel..
