Default C Segment King (Singh is King)

Now with launch of ANHC and revamp of Fiesta in terms of Fiesta S, its about time we see where do these new C Segment cars line up against the existing cars like SX4 (where have men gone?) and Aveo (Is it still selling???)
From what I have heard MUL is having tough time with SX4 sales being affected by Dezire and is giving some solid discount. Aveo, mmmmhhh.. maybe its just there in the segment as an alternative. Forums favorite is Fiesta, but time we put a poll to get the reality over perceptions and see how the forum stands up.
Am I forgetting something.... yeah, power of 100 horses, well than again now all cars mentioned in the lineup have that. So Verna stands out for its deisel, but is there anythign else going on for this car?

personally i wanted to vote for fiesta but i guess due to ANHC it will never be a segment leader.Though i really like what honda has done with the new city but somehow i feel fiesta is a better driver's car. I drove a diesel fiesta sometime back with 6 people at 155 kmph and it was rock stable. i was sold to this car after driving this car for around 500 kms.

FiestaS all the way.

Brilliant engine, precise handling which is driver's pleasure and safety features and the good pricing.

Personally I feel the ANHC is going to leave every other car in the "C" segment behind by a long way.

My choice may not be popular, but I voted for the SX4 for the sheer value for money and the peace of mind because of maruti A.S.S.
Though Fiesta is worth a mention except for the A.S.S. part and ANHC is good overall but way overpriced

I feel FiestaS is the winner in this segment. A.S.S is the only issue as of now!

How is the Fiesta faring in the showroom sweep stakes? The ANHC and SX4 should be way ahead of Fiesta where it matters most.

Fiesta will be a better choice in the current situation. Waiting for the Linea to be a part of this poll as a competitor.

From the current crop, it has to be the Fiesta. But I get a feeling that Linea will make its mark and give a run for the money for all...

Though my personal choice is the SX4, I am still voting for the ANHC. Between the SX4 and ANHC, its VFM versus Build. ANHC is still the best in the segment.

ANHC no second thought for this one. It a new car from Honda and its vtec (rev baby rev) thats good enough for me.

I would've ideally loved to see this thread 6 months from now. Everyone is bound to be gung-ho about ANHC now.. as for SX4 when it was launched last year.

I voted for SX4 since 1) I want to experience ANHC before a factual comparison, not a perceptual one. And 2) With 15K on the odo, am very happy with the car & it's A.S.S.

Voted in favor of SX4. Yes Maruti is having a tough time, but its not because of competetion, but because of its another model Dzire.

SX4, IMHO has amongst the best chassis here that is actually crash tested internationally unlike the Fiesta and G3HC. Moreover the A.S & S. from Maurti is another huge positive point. For its aerodynamics and weight, footwear, the M16A does fantastic job. GC is good, and as is ride quality.
None of the cars listed IMHO strike the best combination of positive points.
