i can see aseem bhai wanting to prove that the baleno is way outdated and the production has to be stopped with immediate effect ..

Interesting poll nonetheless .. Btw as of now its pretty interesting to still see the baleno lead the poll ..

Kudos to maruti for giving us the ever long lasting Maruti Baleno.

Some things will never change .Baleno leads again. Aveo is a good car, but I feel a tad expensive.

Aveo 1.6...simply coz I have given up hope of finding the kind of performance I yearn for in my budget

Very decent interiors (better than Fiesta 1.6, IMHO), decent performance (it is no slouch!). Driven a baleno once but its interiors put me off (despite the much touted performance). And hey, if I am going to plonk my hard earned 700 Gs on table, I expect interiors to go along with it

Voted for the Baleno, after seeing what a stock Baleno(Mclaren's) can do at the Bangy drive to Krishnagiri yest.

On the face of it I think plonking the non VTEC city in this poll is very unfair. In the absence of the same, I would prefer the Baleno.

I agree - one has a right to pay more if one thinks the product is good.
Baleno for me from this list - though NHC VTEC would be the tops.
