Wow, the poll that rated JLo as the winner in the Homo Sapiens species is applied here too. Nice. Linea would by my Jlo here. Dzire would be... Queen Latifah Maybe?

OT: For the stock market freaks: Anybody heard of a JLo pattern?

I would vote for I20 from the list above, other wise any day would love beamers back, damn neat!

quite surprised to see many voting for Linea though i personally think designers forgot about the backside; probably too carried away by the smart front

I found it very hard to choose b/w Fiat Linea and Fiat Punto. At last i casted my vote to Fiat Linea.Btw Italians know how to make us drool over their cars with those perfect lines and bends

i like rear end of both the Stile` and the Retro Palio.

I like the rear end of the Padmini as well. But None of these are on the list.

Voted for Linea earlier - Punto was added to the list today??

@ Rahul - nice pic

The old Palio had an amazing rear end. Another old car rear that I really liked was the original Zen. Successive models of both cars have been disappointing. I also preferred the 2nd Gen Honda Accord's rear end to the current one, which is a cheap imitation of the older generation Mercs. Honda shouldn't have changed it simply because Hyundai copied the look for the Sonata Embrera.

I prefer the ANHC's rear to the Linea. Something about the Linea's back-side does not appeal to me. But both cars (ANHC and Linea) have far nicer noses (although I dont like the excessive use of chrome on the Linea's nose and elsewhere).

But finally, of all the cars on the poll it just has to be the Fiat Punto. It looks completely perfect, from the back and every other angle. Its a pity Fiat doesn't give this car the engine (T-Jet) that it truly deserves.

After the Punto... from best to worst: i20, City, Jazz, Linea, Verna, i10, Swift, Manza, SX4, Ritz and Dzire.

i20 has the most gorgeous rear, no doubt. It looks tout and attractive. Next should be Linea and then Punto.

I've always liked the Italians and the Fords in India when it comes to aesthetics- from any angle.

I am completely surprised to see TATA Manza in the list. It does not deserve to be here. It is just flat panels lined up, no engineering involved. So tata can afford to sell it at peanut price.

Did'nt know that so many BHPians liked the look of the Linea's rear ! Always felt that the Linea looked really good from the front ! I'd rather go in for the Punto !

I agree. Linea's back is not so good compared to the front & I am surprised to see so many voting for Linea's back. I just dont like Sedans with a bare back i.e. License plate on the bumper. For me among Sedans it is ANHC and among hatches it is i20. Voted for the ANHC though
