  1. I hope the competition remains HEALTHY. Unlike past experiences when Honda was launched locally against toyota and both companies kept increasing the prices after bribing the government which remained mum. The brunt was borne by the poor user who was always the loser. I bought Toyota Corolla in 2009 for 13 lakh(including 2lakh 50 thousand sales tax) and now it's booking price is over 20lakh. Quality of manufacturing is no comparison to imported cars.
