    Didn't expect Honda City to be the best sedan! Must drive it sometime... Does it really hold up against skoda octavia?

    The Thar is the only vehicle which I like amongst the Indian car lineup ! Rest all are making boring cars ! I have taken ride in the new Thar ,even as a proper 4x4 vehicle it is as comfortable as a Mahindra XUV300!

    Hi, Always look forward to your yearly awards, its a validation of claims by all auto companies. Bit let down by your bike of the year:-(. Having ridden both Meteor and CB 350, former is definitely two notches below the later. Am a proud Indian but it simply isnt near CB in refinements, driveability and reliability. Hope we look beyond borders to rate best on all parameters. Disclaimer: I am not associated with Honda in anyway except I own and ride the lovely CB 350:-).


    Hope none of u have noticed rishad and renuka look Oscar level prepared ❤️😂and I love when journalists look and deserve the best 🔥

    Thanks for all the efforts! However - premium SUV - MG Gloster??? This was not right I feel. There are much better SUVs in this price segment.

      Only one full size SUV launched bro. It's only Gloster. That reward is for their segments and good response from Autocar peoples.

    The Thar deserves it. It’s a 5 Star Thar not just a Car...I think it is the best thing so far to come out of Mahindra’s stables....I should know, I own one.

  • Sidhartha Raj

    This should be a learning for Maruti Suzuki who sells more than a lakh car per month but not a single award. It is a humble request to Maruti Suzuki to concentrate on its weak points & update its portfolio.

    Amazing to see none of the Maruti Suzuki cars winning an award but yet topped the sales charts for all the months in 2020

    • Hemang Saini
      Hemang Saini

      People still blinded by budget cars and the utter bullshit thinking "kitna deti hai" instead of quality and safe vehicles. People need to realise the REASON behind those so called budget cars. I would rather buy an altroz than brezza. Period.

    • Pranav P

      Maruti Suzuki did not have any new products for how can they be running for the awards?

    • Utham M S
      Utham M S

      Unfortunately not everyone buys the best. Price plays a major role in purchase in India. Maruti has always sold it based on cost and kitna deti hai. They have people who blindly follow them. Having owned maruti’s in the past, I will never go back to them, simply because the quality isn’t on par, service is pathetic, service costs are no where close to cheap like they promote, service is a hogwash and the list goes on

    • Punish Sharma

      They didn't launch a new car in 2020.

    6:05 Variant of the Year should go to Honda City V variant which comes with ESP,VSA, traction control,brake assist,hill hold assist,agile handling assist,4 airbags,tpms which comes standard from base V variant which no car maker is giving standard from base variant Although Rapid rider is value for money but it is decade old product

    • Ayan Das
      Ayan Das

      I am planning to buy the 5th gen City. Can you tell me which variant to go for when my major concerns are CVT automatic and infotainment pack( 8 inch screen with lane assist camera). Budget is 12l. If City is unavailable in that range with those features should I go for 4th gen or any other car?

    • SAHIL

      @Animesh Singh Rajawat City is the best overall practical sedan❤🔥💯

    Disappointed to see MG winning 1 award. Bad luck. For Mid Size Electric Car of the year should have been ZS EV. And Variant of the year should have been Hector Plus. But, congratulations for winning an award.
