I hope everyone is not voting on the basis of fanboy-isim because that's just not fare. I voted for the elite and here's my take on the cars:
Datsun Go: Eu ncap knows what I feel about the go.
Honda City: tinny sheet metal combined with poor fit and finish on the outside. Average diesel and alright petrol. It is pretty ugly from the back and is quite overpriced and overrated. Also pretty dull to drive until you rev the ivtec.
Touchscreen climate control won't cut it for me sadly. I frankly won't buy any Honda. Fiesta is my choice here.
Honda Mobilo or whatever : ^^ same. Just even more 'tinny' and has a horrible interior and build. Ertiga is miles ahead.
Elite : well rounded car and it changed my opinion about hyundai. On paper the elite is not much ahead of the previous generation but it just drives so much better. Stability is no more frightening and it doesn't bounce at speed like a basketball anymore. It's also pretty well built and has superb interiors. Cons are the not so good looking body and the car lacks it's identity. It has an audi grille, BMW inspired interiors and alfa romeo rears. Kappa is far from exciting and the diesel is far from cheap. Still pretty good IMO
Xcent: not into these kind of "sedans". Felt that the zest is better but this would be my choice if petrol. Would rather get some hatch still.
Scorpio: easily one of the most hideous cars on road,no wonder that the quanto is from the same stable. Haven't driven the new one but judging by my friends 2013 4x4, it's also dreadful to drive. Engine is pretty cool though.
Maruti alto k10: didn't check it out and it's not exactly revolutionary but fun for sure.
Celerio: has the worst auto ever. Very jerky but frankly I don't care since I hate autos anyway. Without this USP the celerio is pretty average frankly.
Ciaz: a very handsome car, one of the best looking in its class. Has a good interior, smooth diesel if a little slow and is priced well. But it's pretty slow flat out and a little dull. What really turns me off is that the swifts safety rating says that it's chassis is differently built from the eu one. I feel that Ciaz will also perform similarly and it's not well built either.
Zest: very impressed by the diesel, revetron not so much. Again not a fan of mini sedans and tata dealers are nothing to write a blog about. It still has to prove it self in the long run and fit and finish is not among the best but by no means a deal breaker. Zest is the best diesel compact sedan.
Didn't consider the audis,mercs and the mini because of horrible reliability, incredibly complicated and frankly quite fragile on our roads. Mini is ugly and girly too. And it's not very mini is it? They should start calling it flabby.
