Rebirth of Tata Sierra. It will not be a game changer or make considerable sales figure. But there will be some people who would like to take it. Wishing all the best to Tim Leverton and team to bring the new mini SUV in X1 platform

I would want fiat uno 1.7 to be produced again.
I like its ride ,engine refinement and handling the best.
I dream it to be produced with all latest gizmos viz blue and me, ACC, and safety features like ABS, Airbags.

My vote goes to Maruti Suzuki Zen. In my opinion its one of the best hatches made till date in India. The jelly bean design looks modern till date and driving it is a pleasure.

Maruti could perhaps relaunch it with the 1.0 or even the 1.2 litre K series with modern interiors and that would make one hell of a hot hatch.

My vote goes to the old Honda City. In fact I don't like any of the bloated sedans on offer these days. I'd much rather buy a Hyundai Accent than a Verna, but that's just me.

Maruti Zen for sure with all the modern features and a stronger body shell and a bigger 1.2 engine. That car had one of the best chassis designs of any hatchback.

Maruti's Esteem Diesel, because of the appearance, VFM (but would prefer a Di engine in it), and low maintenance costs.

Maruti's pre-international Zen Diesel, because of low maintenance costs.

Toyota Avalon 2000 because of the appearance and size (present day Avalon is smaller).

My choice would be Honda City Type II (2000-2003), Sierra (Turbo) and the jellybean Zen.

Sierra and Gypsy were my childhood dream cars, with the Sierra slowly taking over from Gypsy till the OHC type 2 got launched. When I got into college, OHC was my dream car to buy with my own money. By the time I got out of college, all these cars were out of production, only to be replaced by some ugly successors!

If Ford would launch the '67 Mustang in India now, everything else just goes out of the window.

Absolutely! compact, good handling, nice looks. The limited edition 2-door looks best.

I am also a fan of the old Mini. It was truly a peoples car, came in different guises: standard, sporty, estate, and even the bare-bones Moke. Sold in the millions.

The Premier 118 NE Viceroy, but with a rust free body, 5-speed superslick Nissan gearbox and the Nissan A12 GX engine with twin Hitachi sidedraft carburetors producing 83 bhp. Just love the box type shape of this car!

The Jaguar E-type Series 1.

It is still one of the most beautiful cars ever made, and the Jaguar is probably the pre-cursor to all relatively affordable sports car like performance production cars.

1927 Aston Martin S type.

Why? Because it is fast, breathtakingly beautiful and above all perfect for aunts, they aren't gentlemen.

BMW E30 M3 and Volkswagen Rabbit GTI

Because when these two cars have existed, very few cars can be given the moniker "drivers cars". Sort of like when Senna has graced the drivers podium all other drivers can only be called one of the greats. Never the greatest.


Mini Cooper S MK II

Because the family needs a car.


If I never owned any other cars, I would die a happy man indeed!

If possible, revive the Jetsons car, sorely needed now.
Also the VW Beetle 1302/1303 if we cant have a Jetsons car

It would be a ZEN , but as a hot hatch from the factory, not the family commuter .
Fast like the drag boys used to make them in 2005-2009 from the factory.

If imports then any of those big american muscle cars, no no no wait the Skyline GTR godzilla.

Lancia Stratos. I would not be able to but it, but i'd be happy knowing it was there.

The old autounion C type would also be nice to have on the streets.

i really would like some more insane homicidal cars on the streets.
