I dont think so that we in Indian market get the same quality as International.

I think this is true for almost all manufacturers that are involved in sub Rs. 20 lakh car market. So out of these all, I find the SX4 chassis as tough one. The suspension is also good and the chassis is from a 4X4 soft roader. So atleast it will be better than the others present here. Specially the Verna and Aveo. Neither of them give the solid feel that SX4 and even Fiesta manage to provide.
I agree with you that we are unfortunately given poor quality and are taken for granted.

straight away voted for ANHC, outright a head turner !
Impressive Engine specs with awesome mileage ( read mileage report of an AT by some team-bhp ownership review )
And on top of it, Honda's reliability, so clearly its the king of C segment.

But given a choice to me, I would buy a fiesta 1.6S and then would spend rest of the money on ICE and other things.

New Honda City all the way, it has taken the game to the next level, others have to catch up bigtime. New models by other manufacturers will only bring respite.
New Honda City is a genaration ahead of the competition.

FiestaS all the way. The A** is also improved quite a bit. Handling and performance are quite good.

I think we should have waited for the Linea launch before jumping to conclusions. I read the roadtest report in ACI and am totally impressed. Interior Quality is great and overall the car looks like built to last. AHNC is no doubt good looking but they have cut corners in a lot of things:
1. Some cheap quality plastics used, expecially the silver centre console.
2. No Climate Control
3. Doesn't look solid -can't explain why i feel so

Honda City all the way! It looks stunning, doesn't it? It has the highest power, has a Honda badge, what more do you need?

Closely followed by SX4. All we need from Maruti is the SX4 1.9DDiS (If wishes were horses...) and it shall leave the competition far far behind.

Fiesta S - it's an out n out driver's car and good VFM too! A.S.S. might be a concern but there are a fair number of people who are pretty satisfied with Ford's service.

SX4 redefined what a C segment car should be and all others are followers. Even a year later Honda’s latest model only lacks, but has not been able to come out a single feature that the SX4 had a year back.

I will wait till Linea is launched and then decide which one to vote for. Definitely worth the wait after reading all the roadtest reports.

I politely disagree. Firstly its the car itself not the features that are important. Most features in SX4 can be found in A-Star as well....

Now coming to the car, tell me which feature except Climate Control and Alloys the SX4 has and City doesnt. Here is what Honda has and its more than a single feature:

1) More Power
2) Airbags and ABS - same as SX4
3) Integrated Audio with steering Control - same as SX4
4) Automatic Tranny with Paddle Shift - More than SX4

Voted for ANHC. It's overall a refined car, having bit of everything.

With Lieana, the poll would have been better though.
