I would definitely get a Range Rover 4.4 SDV8 Autobiography. Would be a superb "car" for our road conditions.

It was OD IIRC. It was done in Rajasthan. In (press) issues around that, they also compared the boot space & back seat comfort. Remember Ambassador coming 2nd (from the last), it was shocking & an eye opener as well.

I think, it has to be the Pajero for me.

Else the max no. of cylinders a Cayenne can pack, in diesel, or the Q7 or LR. Will give the LC a miss.

I read the first post on this page...

Please let me chose an Aston Martin DB9, please. I know its not officially sold in India and I know its a dream but I would give you an arm, a leg, maybe both. I promise i would.

But please let me choose a DB9. .

http://www.topgear.com/uk/car-news/Audi-R8-V12-TDi

this is the one car or if any other successor to this one from any brand comes it would be my one car to choose.

i love the fact that all that diesel torque gives jolts and springs you when u ride, cant think of an alternative to the turbo kick. and i dint find one such phenomenon in any petrol car.

its a DIESEL super car for me, or one in similar lines.

Aaahhhh...the question a la quintessential...
Without mentioning the essentials....

Why not bring a Folks Wagon....
In case think you are a auto shenanigan...

Or what’s wrong with a Suzuki....
When you have a classic Maruti....

Fancy the creamy Nissans.....
Sure fit in a country of kisans ????

Why not rely on a Toyota....
But have they left with any new car quota ???

Honda it may be....
Wil the new engines please the customer to be ???

Forget about the Mitsubishi...
As popular here as the Japanese Sushi....

What news about the General Motors,
God, think already its the Grand Memorial,

Obviously we are not talking here about SUVs
Else it definitely would have been the like of XUVs

But folks, of the latest entrant a la Ford,
At present, surely sings like a rhyming cord,

I would love to own a Range Rover TD, the one with a 4.4L V8. Man that car has a an attitude on the road. It commands respect on our roads, and the car can go over over roads with aplomb. With it oodles of torque and off road gizmos it can happily handle those off roading expeditions I dream of. With its stupendous on road manners it will rule our highways too...I can keep on going on about this car!! :P

An Evoque would be a great car for our roads and traffic conditions. Compact enough to be self driven in the city.

But sadly, as the money doesn't grow on treees, the New EcoSport seems like the best next option!! It is already booked.

I'd go with a G63 AMG. It's quite honestly the meanest looking vehicle on the road today, and you can practically drive through a tornado in it.
