good cars will never need star endorsements, and will still succeed.

Amitabh and Abhishek endorsed Versa, wat happened

In fact many good cars still sell despite effective reverse endorsements by popular celebrities

I am sure Sx4 will soon be listed as leader in Premium C segment, kicking off NHC

Lets hope it does and lets also hope that within a short span the udated CITY butts out the SX4. In anycase its our gain. Cos this freshly brewing rivalry can actually have effect at other places as well.

Juz changing the specs will not help NHC to regain the lost glory. They have to do some serious homework on the design front to match SX4. (pls do some thing with the NHC's dicky! cannot digest!) Its not going to be a quick one then. Meanwhile, some added features which we indian are deprived off in the NHC like ABS/AB etc with some little price cut...thats what we can expect from Honda. By that time they launch anything new, SX4 will have an update or facelift!

MUL is indeed now the leader in the midsize segment (4000-4500mm) segment. It sold 5008 cars in May 2007 in this segment, followed by Ford (2946), Honda (2838), Mahindra (2787), and Hyundai (2739). Honda has declined from 3028 in Apr 2007, and has finally lost its leadership in this segment. Considering that MUL sold 2124 in Apr 07 (incl. some old Baleno but almost all Esteems), it may be safe to assume that SX4 sold 3000 in May2007.

At this 'Sivaji fever' season, I am sure it will boost sales of the car if Rajini ever markets it !!
