If we see, Palio Stile is wellcompeting with other cars according to the many BHPians.. but then still Palio stile sales is struggling.. But good to know at least ppl on board are finding it a bit good to compete with segment leaders..

i voted for the Palio Stile 1.1 -- it is more car for the same price and its bigger and better in terms of user value when compared with the rest of them

I voted for the chevy spark because it's much better in most of the aspects than it's ''ONLY'' competitor in the segment, Santro, except for the boot space and A.S.S.

For me, its a call between santro and spark and its really tough one. We are using Santro for past couple of years, it has been very good so far. Test drove spark few days back and liked the car. Voted for spark just because its new and has better ride quality then Santro otherwise its very close.

I am not surprised to see no takers for the Estilo.

I would not choose any of the cars mentioned above. No, not even the Stile. If it was for my wife, then anyone would do. Not the Estilo though. Yuck.

I'd choose the Xeta for the space it offers and relatively good at customer service. Read service as: "Replace parts in warranty without asking questions"

Done, Sathya.

By the way I was wondering why Maruti Alto does not figure in this list. Seems like inspite of all the platitudes car mags actually give it a miss while listing the B segment cars.

Undoubtedly the Spark.....I loved her road manners. Even with that puny engine, it was a hoot to drive.

Well Id like to go in for the Palio Stile 1.1 (the 16V version..whenever it come out). Love the build quality and now with better FE, its all the more tempting. An excellent highway cruiser, rock solid and built to last forever.
