Default Padmini VS Amby VS NE118 VS Armada

Okie... a very very wierd poll...and i am not sure if people will reply to this topic!! But I take the risk!!

Go back a decade...and think...which one of this would u have bought back then. Say you had to choose a vehicle between these 4 only...your budget being a problem!!

The best part is that non of these is FrontWheelDrive!!!Mostly non of them have interior space problem..but yeah!!everything else except the seats may fail !!

So wat was it gonna be??

Amby for me.
Two reasons:
1) It has the most comfortable and spacious cabin
2) One decade ago, it also had the best engine of the abovementioned cars - the 1.8L Isuzu

The NE118 for me. We used to own one a long time ago. And i used to love driving it. Also the gearbox was awesome. Have really good memories of that car. None of the other cars on this poll come close.
