Smile Honda Civic voted Indian Car of the Year

Just saw an ad in today's papers.

Honda Civic has been voted as the official Indian Car of the Year.

It's good that India has a COTY Award (voted jointly by major Indian mags viz., Overdrive, Autocar India, Top Gear, BS Motoring and Car India) since all magazines with their individual awards have created a mockery of the whole COTY scene.

What say?

Exactly! What IS so special about the Civic? People are going gaga over it everywhere. (NO OFFENSE TO ANY HONDA/CIVIC OWNERS/LOVERS)

Hey thats right esteem lover "Car of the Cars of the Year"

First I thought its TYPO, later on thought one can't expect TYPO from TOI.

Civic deserve the award for sure. Its good car, but I am sure this kinda awards are just to make advertisement thats all.

Every car has its own + and - ve aspects may be civic has less -ve among the cars launched in 2006.

Regards,

Ravi.

PS: Something flashed me in my mind do we have TBHPian of the year award? in this forum If so my vote is to rahul_intlad.
