Sid, congrats on a lovely automible. a white ANHC is amazing. Saw the first ANHC in pune today and its was white. looks cool.

Though I am a die hard Honda fan I felt some of the points in your comparison between SX4 and ANHC are biased :-) but who cares..

The truth remains no one will question you why the hell did you buy a honda. cheers:

@Jesal - I think the Black one looks better as it gives a contrast to White - All white is too sharp looking for the eyes!

Congrats Pal. Looks great.

Have you seen the OE speakers that come with a 9lac Honda (old ANHC)? A real shame thing.

And would like to object to some of your points

1. not having ACC.

Pollen filter and constant temp? And didnt Astra have it?

2. Alloys: Rare case.

6. Whats with 16inch and gas guzzling ???

7. Thought Honda has this issue after 120kmph. And we dnt see Hondas on WRC for example.

And please use proper punctuation/spelling etc when you post so that its easier to understand.

You can have a body coloured Front grille for about 11000 Rs. methinks.. hehehe

The next version will release only in Dec 2011 unless Linea is a hit( Please Fiat dont make a mess of yet another beautiful car) and Yaris comes in force.

10 Lakhs.
Oh my god.
Here in delhi it was 8.2 lakh something.
Was a good deal here.

I guess the v variant would be good if they can provide goodies like alloys , fog lamps , indicator integrated on OVRMS , CD Player and some leather.

SX4 has, because maruti doesn't have any other car above it to privide to its customers. And moreover, today's cars, especially the ANHC has a pollen air filter which helps to maintain a constant temperature as desired.

At least, it is better to use this feature fo higer-end cars like the civic. otherwise, whats the point of having these cars if all the features are provided in the lower C-segment cars?
Pollen air filter-OK; Not sure about how it helps to maintain constant temperature !!

The auto world is moving up so fast, and there are lot many other features that can be loaded on to Civic and above. ACC & alloys are certainly expected in a 9lakh OTR car IMHO.

Lovely looking car - reinforces my belief that white is one of the best colours on any car in India.

Keep it stock - my kind of guy.

I would be cautious if i see this grill coming towards me fast on a highway through my rear view mirror
I think the front grill looks more like venetian blinds rather than a grill. Have seen it in person and it looks pretty sad (personal opinion of course). The rear is not pretty impressive either.
