Nope the T-Jet is not a new car. It's just the existing Linea with a new engine. Only all new launched cars of 2010 are included in the poll.

WagonR is again an old car with facelift. If that be the case should the i10 also be included?

It was a close call between Figo and Vento for me. But, I voted for Vento.

The only car that proved to be a real threat to the untouchable, unbeatable, unmistakable ANHC. Honda guys would have never even dreamt that Vento will surge so much in such a short span.

The price of Vento is the main killer. Except the Auto box, all the other variants of Vento (petrol + diesel both), are almost same priced as ONLY 3 variants of ANHC. Fine, Vento TDi Highline is costlier than ANHC V-MT, but still...

Also, VW has given many more features in the Vento compared to the ANHC.

Figo has also climbed up and up in a very short span. No nonsense car with excellent price tag, makes it very much likable by the majority Indian car buyer. The cabin space is only 2nd to Vista in the huge hatchback market(I think Fabia also has good space, but Figo is just slightly better).

Out of the list given here, only these 2 cars have seen significant volumes since their respective launches. Yes, Etios has seen close to 20k bookings, but that cant be considered since its not even available in the showrooms yet for display purpose, leave alone the TD.

Wrong. The new WagonR is NOT a facelift; it's an entirely new platform. Read up Eddy's WagonR test (Maruti WagonR : Test Drive & Review) for more details.

I have voted for Figo. Value for money big time.
Why is Linea TJet missing from the list?

I voted for Ford Figo. Pretty easy poll here... Figo will emerge as the winner easily.

VW Polo 1.6 is my choice. Good build quality, ride and handling and a 1.6 engine for about 7L OTR. It was also the European and World Car of the Year!

How about the New KB10 Alto, that is also not there in the list. It might give good competition to the Figo.
For me, the choice was between the Figo and Aria. But voted for Aria, as it is a huge leap forward by Tata, in terms of features offered and the way they have exceeded the expections of people. It might be overpriced, but in terms of space, features, etc. Aria has to be a winner.

It was either Figo or Vento but it had to be Figo.

The success of Figo goes to fords ability to meet the demand and not have long waiting periods like Vento.

I think it was not included in the list for the same reasons why T-Jet wasn't included. Mods, correct me if I am wrong.

My vote goes to Figo; there is nothing that i have heard till date that is significantly wrong with the car or the service or anything for that matter.

Voted for the Ford Figo. The TDCi Titanium had me completely bowled over as an overall package, and was about to buy one earlier this year.
