well last year march, exactly a year ago, dad had asked to me to decide which car would be better, ikon or accent. i definately said ikon, widout having second thoughts. & maybach, u cant rate Hyundai over Ford can u? wateva Mr. Subbu says abt the price is a different thing. reducing prices to stay in the market & give u ur money's worth r 2 different things. i really cant trust hyundai. however, tbhians here say CRDi is quite impressive (iv not driven it as im not into diesel cars). but where Getz is concerned, as some1 mentioned above, its all show, no go!!!!

I honestly think HMIL is one fine company and they make damn good cars.Speed is not always the primary thought on every consumer's mind.Most of these people think about stuff like price,maintenance,service presence,warranty,so on and so forth.The Ikon has a good engine,well the 1.6 anyway.That's just about it.You always end up paying a premium for driving a car with the blue oval.One can maintain a Hyundai for a whole year on the money needed to service a Ford just once!!Some people will buy only Ford,most of them returned from the Gulf or Europe.Well then,they should'nt mind paying an arm and a leg to keep it running,then?Just so you know, a well driven Accent CRDi can take on an ikon 1.6 any day.Ikon 1.8D?That's light years behind.
I won't comment on BVR Subbu personally,but professionally he's a bloody genius.He's the only guy who can take the fight to Maruti.More brains than his Korean bosses.
