My Humble opinion as follows: TAI
Sedan of The Year - VW Vento
Almost gave it to the EVO but the pricing meant that very, very few would get to sample the beast. So the Vento takes the crown here. TAI VFM
Car Of The Year - Chevrolet Beat
Chevy's pricing and service plans made this a no-brainer TAI
Hatchback of The Year - Ford Figo
The Hatch to have for its Duratorq Engine and the robust build quality. Ford surely has hit upon a winner with this one. TAI
MUV / SUV of The Year - Tata Aria/ Skoda Yeti
Was confused over the High sticker price of the Aria vs the shoddy A.S.S. of Skoda. Voted for the Aria as TATA service is better than Skoda.
My thoughts on the Nominees...
Maruti Alto K10 - Great engine, cramped space
Chevrolet Beat - Funky Design, Great Package, but cramped for 5 Adults and pathetic Boot-space
Maruti Wagon-R - Flimsy Build quality, but wins in the engine (K10) and service network category
Ford Figo - Brilliant package, great price, excellent engine in the Diesel variant.
Nissan Micra - too sissy, diesel overpriced
Volkswagen Polo - the car to buy if only they'd upgrade their motors
Toyota Etios - this will sell for its no-nonsense appeal and the toyota badge of ownership-peace.
Volkswagen Vento - Good deal, infinitely better than the Etios/City combine.
Tata Aria - A fine home-grown MUV. Dislike the grille and the high sticker price.
Skoda Yeti - An extremely capable vehicle, a welcome alternative to the Laura - bugbear being the shoddy after-sales-service.
Hyundai Santa-Fe - Quirky looks, prefer the older Tuscon
Volvo XC60 - Don't really see too many Volvo's on the streets. Poor service network.
Toyota Prius - Too boring.
Mitsubishi Evo-X - Now this is the sedan to have, damm the HM guys for overpricing this baby by a mile.
