Default Most expected car of 2008?

Few more days to go, I am not sure if we have any new car to be launched within this year? (Like Linea)
I expected Mahindra Scorpio mHawk, Swift deZire and New gen Honda city or the mostly expected cars and exciting car for this year. mHawk was the one discussed one much in team-bhp too, But what are the cars you expected most, and which cars made you really excited.

Did any of the new cars launched this year replaced your previous favorite car?

Throw your views.

i was waiting for the scorpio mHawk since 2007 and bought one in may 2008!
the other car i was expectiong was the XYLO, sadly its launch has been postponed from mid december to 13 jan, 2009.
apart from the xylo, i am anxiously waiting for the linea to see the response it gets as i have read its a fantastic car. will india forgive FIAT and give a warm welcome to its new innings?

Going by what all threads at some time or the other lead to, Fiat Linea should easily take the cake. Will be followed by i20 i guess.

Overall, i feel that the most exciting launch (if we can call it that) would be that of the Nano!

I'm waiting for the linea, new BMW 3 series and the passat cc to be launched. Even the face-lifted innova is due. All these were due to be launched in december. Now i guess it will be first quarter 2009.

The most expected or awaited car of 2008 should surely be TATA NANO. No other car caught the attention of the whole world as the NANO did.

Sad it is delayed.
