Last year there was so much of awards 'given' to U-VA. But did it do any good? I think not!

Would have been good if this magazines also had some kind of voting system.

Logan? Yes. At this price? no!

Mahindra does their Marketing homework very well.

Soon you will have Logans being sold with the sticker "You are following the Car of The Year 2008" fixed by Mahindra themselves.

I am sure that sticker will say a lot about the state of things here.

I think the Team-BHP verdict is pretty clear: Suzuki SX4 . Got more votes than all the other combined!

well if this is the entire list of launches for the year 2007, then the sx4 is the clear winner, with all the goodies and the 16incher wheels it does even have the highest ground clearance in its segment too! so it makes more sense for our pot holed highways!, had it been that the diesel variant was out too then the diesel variant would have been the unbeatable winner with the entire package!

I never knew SX4 was so popular with BHPians,if swift d was to be considered a new launch it would have been the clear winner.

How did Chevy lose its spark?

Only 6 votes for the Spark. There was such a lot of hype around that car, before and after its launch. But its interesting how fast things changed!

My head said vote for SX4 and my heart pushed for 3 series, heart won of course. But mine is only the fifth vote 3-series got. Come on, we have more than that many 3-series owners here...where is tsk and others . Definitely beamer deserves more votes than that people's car passat.

Though I have voted for SX4 i must add that the car is great VFM still they should work on providing the basics first.
Heard more than many owners complaining bout NVH levels.
Are u hearing Suzuki???
You do have a winner here.
Making it refined will add to its charm.
Remember there is no limit to Improvising.
