Can be done for Brezza at least. After all its a 4-star rated car at GNCAP!

Didnt vote as I'm split between the Brezza and the Ecosport.

Nothing beats the Brezza as a VFM proposition, and the Ecosport for its brilliant engines.

I own the Ecosport diesel titanium plus. Face-lift model. While I feel good to see the ecosport garner most votes, it really doesn't seem to translate to sales. The sales chart reflect a completely different picture.

What should Ford do to change this? A better marketing strategy? Show people the comparison? The Brezza doesn't deserve to be in the top. That too with a single engine option.

Ford needs to market more on the affordability of their cars, driving dynamics by organizing specific track or off road events and their dirt cheap service costs(almost the same cost of maintaining my 200NS for a year) / parts. If that's taken care of, things will get better for Ford.

Biggest problem with Ford is that, they don't have a successful entry level car, which will help bring in the numbers when they decide to upgrade. People who are happy with their first car will probably go for the same when upgrading, unless there is a strong USP like Innova or similar cars that are almost a brand of their own.

Tiago has been a success for Tata thanks to its Class leading build quality, equipment and premium feel, Ford could have done the same with Figo IMO.

Don't label me mad as I own a WR-V, love ecosport a lot for what it offers as a package & yet voted for Nexon

Can't comment on XUV300 as not yet driven it & Brezza is overall a downer except that I appreciate its boxy design.

Not to suggest that WR-V is a bad product - have driven close to 9000 kms in 8 months, including a longish drive of 3000 km in 8 days & trust me its a complete all rounder.

I would've taken the Nexon but a best friend who is always a companion on all drives & holidays took one on my suggestion couple of months before I intended to suddenly take the plunge in car market again.

So Nexon was ruled out for me as we take each others car for spin whenever we want, its like co-ownership , to an extent we also have 1 set of our car keys with each other.

From all other options, my heart was set on Ecosport but that lack of rear seat space was a huge put off & add that horrible looking speedo console with dot matrix fonts on the revised models (no offence to owners).

Was strictly looking at CSUV's only; Went for WR-V for excellent space management, Sunroof (A gift for daughter aged 7) & capable diesel mill( I can live with that tractoristic refinement, Audio volume helps )

Of all, Nexon is clearly way ahead as a package & what a VFM product by our own TATA & hence voted for it.

Voted for the Nexon both here and my wallet.

An year I did extensive search and froze on the Nexon despite its loud styling.

Brezza is the best proportioned, however the interior is just really bland. Also it is super cramped at the rear with 3 passengers. And its AMT engine combo is horrible to say the least.

WRV, looks like a grown jazz. Though the space is brilliant, it is too soft and unengaging for my taste.

EcoSport was not considered for its rough ride..

XUV 300 looks nice but a CSUV cannot do with a boot that is bettered by hatches costing half as much.

Chose Nexon for its diesel engine AMT combo, brilliant interiors, ICE, and chose to go with the ornate grey dual tone as it does not have that flashy white strip going around it. The grey looks much sober in my opinion..

Voted for 'others'. I would pick Hyundai Venue for one major reason that is tight parking in my basement. It has a decent diesel engine, Hyundai's hassle-free ASS.

Things I would have really wanted are the ventilated seats which are a boon in hot summer days, a little more power output and higher state of torque.

I would consider buying the 1ltr TC engine with DCT but the lower torque output and the 3 cylinder which would run out of breath easily are the things that would make me choose a diesel.

With the Hyundai Venue now on the roads + a strong start with its bookings, it would be nice to add the Venue to this poll (or start a new poll) and see if & how the results change.
