Many on this poll have voted for the stile thinking 1.6. Well the Stile in contention here is a 1.1, how many people who voted for it previously would like to vote against it now? My vote goes to Spark.

Would advise a re-poll though.

Hmmm... Interesting poll.

At the moment, Spark leads with 32 votes, WagonR 2nd with 23 votes and Santro Xing 3rd with 21 votes.

No one has voted for the Zen Estilo?

Thanks.

I strictly wanted to stay with B segment, Alto being in A segment is excluded. I believe that when people are looking for B segment car, they won't buy lower segment.

I wasn't quite sure what is minimum price of all these cars/models (didn't have time to check).

In many sites/magazines, I am seeing that Getz is compared with Swift n others in B+ segment.

Sorry but it should rather be Palio Stile 1.1 / 1.6 bcoz of B+ seg cars like Swift and Getz are there then so can Palio in both variants be.

I was also inclined towards Spark bcoz if this B seg car is your second car doing all kinds of miscellaneous jobs in narrow lanes then Spark with superb FE makes lot of sense.

But if its your only car then nothing beats the Santro Xing (best overall package and excellent service support.

Note that i am not denying the fact that GMI service is improving my leaps and bounds.
