There are more chances for Honda City for Car of the Year and Outlander for SUV of the Year..

- Fiat palio had and has features like. Fire protection, double crank prevention, key reminder, reverse gear protection, safety beams in pillars ... from the time of its initial release (2001)

- Maruti 800 is more stable, comfortable & aerodynamically superior than most new cars.

- Daewoo Cielo, Matiz where cars which were released way ahead of  thier time with excellet technolgy and engineering. They suffered from initial failure, but a big hit after rerelease.

- Cars like Honda CRV, Chevrolet captiva, Toyota Prius, Scion, Honda civic cost not more than 10 lakhs in actual market. The price of the car is doubled due to import duties.
