People buy the PALIO and VISTA because they cannot wait for the SWIFT.
And also because Aam junta has a typical image of FIAT in their mind, some people here think it as another DAEWOO
The LINEA is nothing but a GRANDE PUNTO with a boot. Ya its well integrated and does not look pasted on like the IKON, but it still is a boot plus car and not something designed ground up like the ACCENT.
What about Dzire's boot
Korean cars are copies of Japanese ones. Look at their lifestyle, they are the 'me too' brigade. They just ape the Japanese.
A Hyundai has made it to the top recently, there was a thread on this forum
Think about this, the DZIRE is a made in India car, the MARUTI engineers put their own caps on and designed the car exclusively for India.
Yes, for aam junta it is!
Whenever we see one on the road, we say as another Lallu Lal ki Gaadi. Maruti made a Lallu of indian public, this was discussed to death in this forum even before the Dzire was launched and some fellow bhpian gave it the 'name'.
Dzire owners pl. don't mind.
To all those 49 Bhpians who voted for the LINEA, all the best with your 'gamble'.
BTW, I voted for MAGNUM
If you want to know the real value of a FIAT, buy one, bring it out of the showroom and try selling it, a car's real value is how the majority percieves it. The DZIRE in diesel will hold its value the best, years from now.
Again who among the buyers would be?

1. Logan - Not very exciting from both outside and inside. Tail lamps are ..... I do not know what to say
2. Fiesta - its like drinking diet pepsi with Vodka. They have put small seats to show that it has big room inside. C -segment is hundred horses atleast.
3. Verna - Remember we all went gaga when the first accent diesel was launched. We all again went more gaga when the CRDI came. They were the ones to basically reinvent Diesel in india. Overall it is a very good package. My vote is for verna.
4. Linea - Looks fresh. But will need steroids to run.
5. Optra - What to say somebody already quoted it "poor mans mercedes"
6. Dzire - Maruti should not have just pasted a boot. They should have done some work on the A - Pillar
7. Indigo - No comments
8. Octy - Old wine in new bottle.
9. Ikon - Car for the older generation

What are the "other reasons" you mentioned as reason for Dzire's popularity?
You are simply promoting one car and demoting another - is a proof of your immaturity.

Isn't it too early to include Linea in this poll?
There is hardly any car owner at this stage and it's too difficult to judge the car based on small test drives or just specifications. It surely looks like a winner, but to be an actual winner, it has to prove it on the road (irrespective of how many get sold).
There is a certain hype around Linea, just like every other new car launch. Let it die down before you can include it in the poll.
Till now, my vote goes to Magum, but if Linea proves what it has promised, it clearly would be the winner by good margin.

Logan - looks are not good.
Fiesta- Looks outdated now.
Verna- Not at all VFM inspite of very good engine.
Linea - weak engine otherwise VFM. (voted this)
Magnum- overall great but A.S.S and poor resale as stated above.
Dzire- Hate the looks.
Indigo - Engine not worthy.
Octavia- Outdated & A.S.S.
Ikon - Same as Octavia.
@ NC - Loved the comments. Specially the Diabloo one is hilarious!
