yeah its such a well packaged hatch that its already one of my fav. The car has the capability of changing indian hatch market considerably, but thats just my opinion

Seems like Delhietes are more smitten by i20 than others, coz same goes for me too, I really loved the car. Cant argue with others about VFM of that car, as others start comparing it with Maruti, who's quality I hate. Not yet on my top 5 cars yet but its superb hatch. I'm looking forward for a TD and then come upto some conclusion.

my top 5
1. Honda civic
2. Octavia Rs
3. Swift DDIS
4. ANHC ivtec
5. Hyundai i20

Not taking mercs, bmw's or audi's into perspective as they are niche and wouldn't call them Indian cars per say. If I would include then all the spots would go to them.

top 5 indian cars for me, if i do not consider cars costing above 15 lakhs:

1) toyota innova: do i need to say the reasons?
2) mahindra scorpio: engine, style, ruggedness and butch appeal.
3) honda civic A/T: paddle shift!
4) hyundai i20: features can put a c class to shame!
5) maruti swift: the best 'sports' hatchback for that money.

1. Honda CIVIC - even after all these years it still remains a road scorcher!! the amazingly sexy cockpit design, the disco fever of the speedometer and tacho, and the incredible awesomeness leaves nothing more to be desired!!
oh and it happens to be an awesome car to drive too!!

2. Ford Fiesta 1.6S - the upgrade was not just cosmetic (though it was extremely BLING!) but functional too!! revised suspension dampers make this car one hell of a handler!! n the juice is definitely worth the squeeze...

3. Suzuki SWIFT DIESEL - not only is the Swift a hoot to drive but the excellent fuel economy (diesel) is just the cherry on top needed to make the poor man's mini cooper a huge success!! The petrol being more rev-friendly is a much more involving car but the diesel just takes the cake!

4. Honda CRV - the penultimate soft-roader with the agility of a Civic yet the firmness of an SUV... truly a driver's SUV!! though the fuel bills won't do u a favour!

5. Mitsubishi Cedia Sports- truly a head-turner with the punch to back it!! A worthy successor to the Lancer, though an EVO would be nice!!!
