My vote goes for the Swift.

For redefining the small car segment in India!

I voted for the Swift purely because no other car has captured the collective fancy of so many people in our country since the 800. And its not something,IMHO, which is just all hype and doesnt live up to its reputation. Its quite good too.

I think it has to be Hyundai Tucson CRDi
Reasons:
amazing shape which has a touch of aggression,elegance n machoism
engine that has unlimited torque...CRDi speciality

Swift - for creating more activity in the supermini segment and being a modern hatch (except for its engine eh?)

The 5 cars you see on the poll are entirely NEW cars, not derivatives of existing machines.

for me Swift is the car of the year. I vote it for its design and also for reviving the B+ segment which was allmost dead.

Default Swift for me

My vote is for Swift.

Reasons:
1. Very fresh design.
2. A step ahead of competition.
3. Catchy pricing (VFM)
4. More than all of the above, this is the car which introduced all the safety equipment (ABS, Airbags) to common Indian Janata. This car made the safety affordable.
5. Plus, alloys, tubelss, climate control etc etc affordable too.

Common people are getting exposed to these new things (points 4 & 5 above) which will force other car manufactures for such features in their cars to do well in the market. This means, the Swift is and will make future cars more safe than before.
