Currently drive a 4-year old petrol Swift. Need a new car soon. I'm waiting for any manufacturer to launch a decent mid-sized hatch (e.g. Civic, Golf, Megane etc...) with at least 120bhp under the bonnet.

Just bought a Hyundai i10 Automatic and i don't see myself changing it for a long time as i think i've got it just right this time. And just fyi i shifted from an Accent Viva to an i10. The ease of parking, driving in traffic and narrow bylanes & manouvering were my main requirements hence the decision.

Looks like a lot of Santro, Palio and Swift owners on this forum. Punto seems to be a favoured car.

There are many owners who havent voted.

Vote..!!

Currently driving 2004 WagonR and I'm satisfied with my Wagon's performance, so no plans to change my ride till 2013. May be I'll go for MUV or SUV depending on my family requirement later. Till then I'm enjoying my Wagon's City and Highway run.

I own a Swift VDI, and i just simply love the car. Some how i am lucky to have a rattle free car. Even though some small sound creep up when nearing service, it is rectified during the service.

Excellent value for money with excellent mileage. Ive covered 40k in this car and simply love this car.

I have a Swift Vxi. Was keen on the Vdi, but the 6 month delivery period put me off. The Vxi was delivered in 5 days.
Am happy with it and look forward to driving it every morning even after 34k on the odo. Every morning before starting I pray to the patron saint of all Swifts, Shree Rattleshwar Swamy.

Own a wagon r for close to 4 years. The car has rendered excellent service without any issues at all. Looking for an upgrade by this year end. Most probably it wont be a hatch this time, but if it were one, grande punto would've been a strong likelyhood.

Have a Fiat Palio 1.6 Sport since June 2007 and recently bought Indica Vista 1.3 QJT Anniversary Edition purely as an impulsive decision due to the colour combination and features.

Looking forward to Grande Punto launch this month and may exchange Palio for Punto if any good offer comes by, after all another impulsive buy and I might just be thrown out of house!!!

Default Octy / Laura?

Do the Octavia & Laura fit in here? They are technically hatches. If so, I own one each of the Petrol and Diesel varieties. A Palio 1.6 and a Laura.

Cheers,
