Voted for SX4 sedan. The boot is neatly integrated! Really like it, though went for a Corolla for my dad.

And what is with the design of Honda Jazz Sedan? Took TD, and happy with the NVH. But it looks so aweful! On top of it, with 14 inch tyre.

Guys one honest question - Are all these cars cab forward designs leaving aside the NHC? I for sure don't think so. Can anyone explain to me please what is actually a cab forward design?

I voted for the fiesta. I think a white fiesta looks really elegant and classy.

Fiesta. Damn good looking and well proportionate in size. SX4 looks fatty like tun-tun, where back of verna is not inline with the front.

My Vote: SX4 it is! Am crazy behind the SX4 nowadays. A close second: the City ZX. Although people say things about its rear. Still it looks good. Third comes Fiesta and fourth comes Aveo.

My order of preference in terms of style

1) Fiesta
2) SX4
3) NHC ZX

The Aveo is too plain-looking, run-of-the-mill kind of looks and the Verna should not even qualify for a looks contest.

I would say, the best looking in that group is Verna & Aveo

Hate them cab-forward sedans. These are basically econo-sedans aimed at budget buyers who want a hatchback with a boot. Otherwise why is that same manufacturers stick to conventional low slung, long bonnet sedans when it comes to their premium sedans like camry, accord, mondeo, optra and sonata as opposed to one rung lower sedans like corolla, city, fiesta, aveo and verna. I just hate them. When will these manufacturers grow out of habbit of sticking a tail to a hatchback?

For one, not everyone out to buy a car is looking for a premium sedan. Most buyers (exclude the enthusiasts), are in the market for an econo-sedan, to satisfy the basic necessity in getting from Point A to Point B.

First-time buyers looking to upgrade from a two-wheeler, generally, would look to upgrade two an econo-sedan (or a hatchback), rather than jump into the premium segment, right?

Whichever car is seen more on roads (sells more) its shape starts to grow on your imagination ... remember the old santro, NHC and Baleno for some (including me) after it started selling.

And there are section of people who own a particular product / car and in pure admiration for their beauty they just support it with heart and soul.

Honestly if u ask me looks in this segment its AVEO hands down.

And as i have always maintained if looks + performance blended together then nothing beats the SX4 ............. undoubtedly a man with a muscular frame and a strong heart.

Hence here my vote goes to Aveo.
