Default Pick the Overdrive Car of the Year 2005

After Business Standard Motoring, it's the turn of Overdrive Magazine to announce their annual Car, Bike and UV of the Year 2005. The (and I quote) 'nation's most coveted awards and prestigious awards for automotive excellence' will be up for grabs in New Delhi on January 8, 2005.

You can cast your vote too. If your choice matches the jury's, you could win yourself a Ferrari. Seriously, go ahead...

*** !!!

the audi A8 ?? porsche 911 ? the arnage ? continental gt ?
what are the guys at OD thinking ???

i mean without selling a single car how can these cars be nominated ? call me idiotic or stupid but i hope none of these cars win!!

amongst the fusion - elantra - getz-superb , i choose the Ford Fusion.

amongst the uv's (the porsche,prado and x-trail are out for me) i personally think the Ford Endeavor it is.

a double whammy for Ford ?? boy i wish it is !!

cheers

I think the car of the year choices r pretty stupid... cant really pick one in the category
The UV segement...i'd pick Endeavour for its value for money and if price no bar then Cayenne
Bikes....not really my cup of tea so i rather not comment

No RS,no accord V6..........
of the existing list i think it will be between the fusion n the getz.

my vote goes to the getz.the fusion loses out beacsue of its pricing.

I would rate Getz higher than fusion. Fusion is simply too expensive and it is neither a sedan nor a SUV. For the same price, you can get either a NHC (a very good package in itself) or a Scorpio.

To me Getz looks marginally higher priced for its engine. But may be refinement levels will justify the cost. Its practical too.

Getz for me too. Fusion is rather pointless, and looks SOOOO dull too.

My vote goes to Hyundai Getz, its a great family car and certainly i think it is the best car from Hyundai yet in India.
