This is one poll where my head and heart said ACCORD at the same time. Man the car is just so silent, smooth, responsive + HONDA only car i would like to own before the civic launch.

Default Accord all the way

H.O.N.D.A has always been one of my first crushes from days of yore... another car brand that i fancied as a kid was Datsun... even now the Honda fever is still on and am waiting for the day that I can afford an ACCORD.....

Maybe we need to revisit the choices now? This is a 2 year old poll.
Suggested additions
- Safari Dicor
- Honda Civic
- Verna CRDi
- Fiesta 1.6

Suggested deletions
- Chevy Forester - Not sold anymore.

Remember guys, this is not your dream car - this is the all-purpose activity vehicle(APAV) we are talking about

I am tired with cars, no more facinated with looks. Now on UV ( Bolero!) migrated from Honda1.5exi, though original facination was Jeep wrangler - Mahindra classics available are older than me. Be it family outing, take on rage cab, BMTC drivers , on Highways or no road condition. Not sure why most of us do not understand utility than looks- fit and finish.

Default the Accord for me

But its great that GM took the step of launching it here...however wrong their marketing advisors were.

Personally, i like the Skoda. Right size for the city, excellent highway car and that great engine. Now all I gotto do is source the chip and bump the power upto 130Hp. All for less than 300 pounds.
the contest for me was between the ACCORD and the forester.... i read a lot about the Forester and was really tempted ...Impreza Chassis, amazing all round ability... but the quality or plastics and the interior space lets it down...
on the other hand everything about the accord is just right....great looks amazing interior and great space...the Car drives well and ride and handling are at par with most other cars here....
my personal choice would be the Octi RS in bright red but i will take the Accord V6(can i have one with a smooth manual please) anyday..mine would be in Black...
i have seen a Mugen Accord(white) in Hyderabad a few times and i just stopped to have a look at the massive alloys(17/18 inchers i guess) and the low sporty(not loud) silhoutte.just what the doctor ordered.
