This car isn't Indian made. This particular model is the last model of the 800 shape that Suzuki built in Japan. It retains the older tail gate/rear bumper/tail lights though the front fenders are of the current design available in India. This model sells in Pakistan too.

The Indica would be the closest contender for the true blue car exported from India. However I am sure that the Tata Sierra was also exported to some country. Many years back I had seen Left Hand Drive Sierra's standing at the BPT docks... Never bothered of asking where they were headed to.
Maruti Suzuki cars - Well they have the same car running in Japan also.
Ambassador - Its a copy of the old Morris
Hyundai - Dont remember if they ever made a car specifically for the Indian market

Default Made in India

I have seen Hyundai Santro in Sothern Texas,USA.It had Mexican plates and was badged Dodge Atos.If Hyundai doesnot make it anywhere else it has to be from India.I have also seen Ford Ikon here with Mexican plates.
I have seen Tata telcoline (tatamobile in India?)in Australia many years ago.
