Price is one of the most important factor in buying a car!

The buyer will always have a budget in mind when he plans to buy a car, he looks for cars that falls within his budget, though he may stretch a bit here & there.

Wow.
The white GP looks smashing!
Is this a photoshop job, a modification or this model really comes anywhere in the world?

Not necessarily. ANHC is the best example of that.

Also Price cannot stand out of the parameters list. If price also was a parameter, still i20 would have won unless Punto scored 10 on price and i20 0 which would not have been the case

Sid, I just cancelled all my auto magazine subscriptions!! They don't come close to giving detailed, practical reviews, from an everyday persons point of view. My dinner went ice cold, cause I forgot to eat while reading your review. Great Job!
When I TD cars, I use a "feel good" factor too when you drive the car. I know it's subjective, but I am sure many would have experienced. I am a designer, so I fuss around the small things that you touch and feel, like the textures, switch turns etc.
I chose my car/SUV (X5) over the ML320 for just these things.
Keep up the great work, you have a huge appreciative following. would love to meet up with you some time, we all know we have a lot in common. Take Care.

Good show Sid! As usual a very good review/comparison.

The lack of sensitivity in the i20 steering seems to be a bit of a worry. Is this lack of feedback typical to all EPS? How does it fare compared to other cars that employ an EPS(across various segments)?

Excellent, detailed and structured review. I was a little foxed with the final verdict marks, but I think individuals should take the ratings for every parameter and should give weightage to each as per their personal requirements to get a correct statistical verdict. (not too sure how to do that, I am not as good at statistics as Duckworth-Lewis )

I observed that swift is perceived by many as "poorly build" due to some minor rattles coming from window assembly/dash board.

I completely agree with your point.
Noticed it earlier but ignored it because the quality of plastics are just fantastic with a bit of squeaks which have not been bolted properly.

excellent review Sid. I know the ratings are very subjective, and a lot can be debatable - but this is an excellent effort cheers for that.

Personally, i might be a little more inclined towards i20.

A very objective and detailed review. As usual, great work by our scoop man. A winner with lesser marks than Second prize guy helps in saving loads of pages in TBHP too

ANHC is not bought by those who have a budget of 7.5 to 8 lacs in mind, generally
