Dont know whats stopping them from going for the kill. Maybe production constraints, with the Swift-D itself not being able to meet the demand. Also with the SX4-Zxi.

So, it clearly means that SX4 is now leader in premium C segment? BTW, any idea of NHC units sold?

NHC was leader till SX4's debut. And in May itself (when SX4 debuted) SX4 became top selling in premium C. When SX4's sales is boosted, I am sure it is leader this month as well.

4839 = Esteem + Baleno (Few unsold ones) + SX4
Wish your gut feeling comes true

As I enquired MUL dealers during early this year, they said that Baleno is almost sold out. So, this number could be not more than 100s.

Unfortunately no manufacturer gives break up of entry & premium C segments. I will check with Automags.

And.....guess what....

Accord does not have MP3 player. Only plain old audio CD!

It seems, according to Honda, if you are rich, you will not listen to mp3. Only wav and wma....

ha ha ha...
