Can I change my vote?
All varients, except Accent GLE, are phased out. Thats why I inlcuded Accent in list, otherwise it must have been out like Petra.

Same goes with IKon, only the 1.3 Flair varient is available, others phased out.

The 1.3 flair thats being sold is pretty anaemic in the power department. If the 1.6 were available, that would have been my choice .

But then the Flair isnt really aimed at the racing crowd.
It does its job, and is fun to drive, the other Ikon traits remaining intact.

The esteem it is. Fun to drive, quick, good A$S, good FE, great potential for mods.

No brainer this. Suzuki Esteem it is.
IKon comes a close second.

My vote goes to Accent... Reasons:

1. Accent : Hyudai service back up.. feels a bit upmarket than others in the league.
2. Ikon: No brainer looking at Ford service
3. Indigo: Quality issues still exist
4. Esteem: Toooooooooooo old design to go with
5. Logan: Seems a bit overpriced for the things I get

I would have voted for accent or esteem, if they were not at their end of life. Right now its Logan for me.

Maruti ESTEEM. It has all the qulities of an entry level sedan (reliable, FE, cheap spares good A.S.S. and a G13BB engine is a bonus ) .

This is surprising all the while most of us having been bashing the Logan for its dated looks and the build quality and it oddities. Look what we have here its leading the pack and this is when not lot of people would have driven it, I would request all the future voters to go TD the car before you vote for others.

Voted for the Logan 'cause Accent, Ikon and Esteem are going to be replaced sooner than late and the Indigo is not as refined as the Logan.

I voted for the Ikon because I had one in the past and the only disappointment I had was in the service and maintenance departement. But that was a diesel Ikon. I guess the petrol version now available would be easy on the maintenance. I feel that the Ikon is the best looking among other cars in the option here. It's very good to drive too.
