I think Manza will take my vote.

Watch out, the blue eyed boy may beat Manza in terms of creating public awareness in a very short span. The common man will discuss about this launch more than the Manza. It was the same when A-Star was launched.

IMO the best launch in recent times has to be the Ford Figo. It is a spacious car, looks good and got decent power. Overall it is a VFM offering.

Personally, I am not really impressed by any of the recent launches that are mentioned here!!

All of them have been more into the "Features & Comfort" rather than "Power & Performance" for which I crave.

But Yes, one launch that was probably the most anticipated (IMO) was a VW for 5L, THE POLO.
I don't like the Manza's Finish but have never heard anybody say its a Bad Launch. On the contrary, I guess it has Delivered More than what an Average Indian would want in terms of both Affordablity and VFM.

# Figo definately leads the pack in my books, VFM, tried & tested engine, very good road manners, decent boot space
# Fortuner for changing the SUV scene, but for the pathetic brakes (which now have been upgraded)
# Polo could have done better with engine options (more power)

Those are the 3 on my list



Cheers

For me
@ Manza - I hate the sound and the feel of the car but features are not that bad. In side is good.
@ Figo - I didn't like the look's, They could have done the better job with the front look's. I have not seen the car from the inside.
@ Beat - I have bought it. I like the look's, both from inside and out.
@ Polo - Better engine and this car will rock for sure.
