Manza - too early to comment.
Hyundai Accent - Out Dated.
Ford Ikon - Out Dated.

Dzire - Selling in good numbers, just because its from Maruti and VFM. Worst sedan car.
IKon & Accent - Very less features, good but very old cars.
Manza - Looks to be promising, but we have to wait.

My vote for future - Manza

I don't see Logan in the poll list. anyway this is last for me.

Thanks for informing this RSM, Logan has been added in the poll.

My vote is actually tie between dZIre and Manza.
Accent is living on its final stages and something same with ikon as well, All the difference is that Ford doesn't wants to give up easily so they keep updating the ikon, Otherwise it needs a major facelift or a complete replacement now.

My pick would be the Logan.
It is sensibility at it's best. Nothing to hush-hush about. A plain driver's car.

If this question was asked to me a few months back i would have said that its difficult to choose between the ikon and dzire. The reason for that is that i had driven ikon and was sold on its driving pleasure. I had heard about very good performance of the dzire but it was always shadowed by its ugly looks. I never liked the dzire. But recently tested a dzire and this machine has got me on my knees with its performance. here i'm talking about the diesel dzire. Its got everything needed from a car. the power is very well distributed throughout the powerband. even at speeds like 120-130kmph the car very eagerly pushes towards north of 150kmph. and it does all this with very good road manners. i am impressed with it. be it suspension, or the air-con, be it the gearshifts, or the stock music system. everything falls in place like it should. and at then end of the day it also returns fuel efficiency figures of 20+kmpl. and the price tag makes it even more exciting.
dzire is my current choice as it is too early to comment on the indigo manza.
ikon comes 2nd for me for its sheer driving pleasure.(wish they still had the 1.6L option running)
the logan comes third for me for its durability and long lasting built. its built to clock large figures n the odometer.although there's nothing exciting aboout the car. its there to deliver and thats it.
the accent although a good car is outdated now. and i personally never liked the accent for its cramped interior space.

I would prefer Manza as it seems to be a really excellent package!

Its an VFM too :)

Most of us here says that its too early to comment! But i dont believe it.

Because TATA launched vista last year which was the best ever car from TATA.

Now Manza, the trend setter & benchmark for TATA!

Kudos TATA, Still way to go !!

That is alright Zinam, No doubt that feature wise and look wise Manza is best in class, But what about the long term reliability?
I voted for dZire mainly because of its long term reliability which is one of a very important factor when buying a car, Also Maruti's the friendly and best After Sales Service network, This is where Tata Motors still lack.

I agree Vibhor! But please dont forget that indicas are still the hottest selling Cabs :)

So can a manufacturer sell a car without long term reliability? Obviously no!

We cannot tell that TATA cars are unreliable. They are, they are improving a lot now a days & according to me they are in the right path.

Its just my challenge for Maruti [;)] Ask them to come out of JV of Suzuki & tell them to launch a single car in INDIA! Then i will agree that Maruti is the best brand!

Hey guys, No offences meant! just my view on manufacturers [cheers]

I would have simply selected Logan, as it is a overall better car. But its current market condition is not the best.

So, its Manza for me.

@zinam, majority of shares of Maruti are owned by Suzuki. Our government now don't have any stakes in it. Hence they renamed the company as MSIL now. It isn't about JV, they control the company.
