This race is going neck-to-neck between

Fiesta/Aveo/NHC

Baleno seems way ahead.....is it so good, or Team-BHP has a higher density of Baleno-lovers.....

To be honest, I have NEVER EVER seen so many baleno lovers in my life in a single forum. Some one should tell MUL about this
Imagine what would happen if MUL agrees to give a face lift (and an even more desperately need back lift) to Baleno!!!

Baleno is bit outdated! I would rather try the new Aveo!

I've never seen or driven an Aveo till now so i'll wait to comment on that. As of ow i'll take the Honda. The new one somehow looks better the more i see it

Thumbs up Aveo-now That's Performance

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana] If I had to choose it would be very easy choice I would pick Aveo.[/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana] It might be little more expensive than Fiesta but it is worth each extra rupee.
Well done GM![/FONT][/COLOR]

Same here... the fit and finish of the car we had seen in cochin is far better than any of the C-segment cars we had seen so far, including the NHC. The interiors are class and I am sure it will be a good performer with the 1.6 Engine.

Normally I would be a bit skeptic about any new car release but the Aveo might be an exception. The car looks good unlike the plain jane ford Fiesta.

Congrats! You will not regret the decision, I can assure you......I've completed 2000 kms so far (1.6 sxi MDS with ABS & spoiler) and am loving it more by the minute!

Cheers!

I don't want to start another heated debate but this is interesting.....when I compare the current results with the earlier one of Baleno vs Fiesta, it seems to me that most of the Baleno votes have now got split between the City & Aveo (because the gap between the Fiesta and Baleno votes is just 11, 21 vs 32); don't tell me the loyal Baleno fans are switching loyalties.....

Thanks suman. Guess i would love it too. I didnt go for the ABS model. Not sure spending 25k extra is gonna help (also during resale ABS is not going to be counted for the extra cost i thought)
What do you say?

did you change the stereo or the stereo in the system sounds adequate?

Well maybe a few baleno owners havent had the time to log on and vote .. Aveo would be a close 2nd ..

What do you say?
Extra features for comfort and safety should be as per your convenience and liking - do not worry about the re-sale value of the car.

The added safety of ABS might come quite handy in the long run, which would be much more than any drop in resale value.
