  2. Then what about i20? launched in Dec 29? did that get into hands of aam admi for a month? no one is saying anything about that car bcoz it won nothing? Please tell me which other reputed award in the world says car should be in hands of aam admi? If rules have been made clear from before then how is it possible to change it in the last minute?
  3. Cars cant be sold without official price. If there is sale of cars in december then the price must have been announced. Price list was availble in showroom and dealers were taking booking money too with 1 lakh deposit also
  4. Linea had a soft launch in December 2008 as the main launch was getting postponed bcoz of terror strikes. Cars are in showrooms and pricing too is available. According to the SIAM sales report the Linea has sold around 130 cars in December 2008. Heard that Fiat is waiting for Italian team to return from the holidays before launching in formal way in India. but cars have been sold already in the last year.
  5. You cant import a second-hand car into India so that will scuttle your plans for Forrester. Suggest you go for CR-V or Outlander. that is closest to Forrester feel.
  6. Choose the Petra D. It is more reliable than the Ikon and less maintainance too
  7. Amby's should not be difficult to service as the mechanicals are simple and not built to fine tolerances. Try some of the ex-rally tuners who might have modified Amby's eons back.
  8. I agree. It's the boxy styling which makes the Logan look so downmarket that has been its downfall. Let us not forget that cars like the Dzire have put a spanner in the Logan's plans and I am sure the Dzire has stolen quite a few customers from the Logan. The ikon diesel has now come and my view is that Logan is expensive for what you get when you take these other cars into the gameset
  9. I think people on this forum like to criticise without knowing any facts. COTY eligibility rules have been in place for years! - all over the world! i20 MUST be included because if it is left out, it will be in contradiction to rules all over the world. How can anyone make the exception now!
  10. i20 has lots of firsts like folding mirrors and 6 airbags. This is a great move by Hyundai to offer lots of things in a premium hatchback that has not been there before.
  11. It is a stupid choice by Zigwheels and shows they cannot make up minds when they give a tie! how can small car like A-star which is so bad on passenger space and Honda City which is overpriced be winning?
  12. Including i20 is absolutely correct. this is the car of the year for 2009. It is a contest for the latest cars. all the other COTYs whether it is in Europe, Japan or America includes the latest cars even if they have not been on the roads when judging was done. Eligibility clearly states that cars should be on sale from Jan 1 to Dec 31. i20 went on sale before then so it is unfair to leave it out. Sticking to the rules is important.
  13. I am feeling that its quite shocking that VW introduces a new engine without telling publicly its customers. Such sneaky tactics is not good for a company that enjoys a high reputation. The CRDi is going to be superior to PD so I ask you all is it fair to the customers who paid same money for PD as CRDi?
  14. A-star for being economical and cheap but the City for its sheer technology. City gets my vote
