I think by 10/10 he means cars which have universal kinda appeal and the shape is timeless.
For me its the Palio.

In this list, I would vote for Accord. But me thinks, Chevvy SRV is the best looking I have seen around. Wouldn't buy one tho'!!

In India I think the Mondeo was good looking if a little bland other than that the really good looking cars have been few & far between.

I think all the cars mentioned are lookers in their own right. But if it has to be just one, then it has to be the Accord.

Max - I know that & that is why my first statement clearly stated what I thought about the cars on sale in India.

None of the cars above, if its in that segment. I would say either a Skoda Superb or Honda Civic should have been there.

If we can vote for lesser value cars then...none to beat the looks of Accent Viva CRDI

Hey max - thanks for clarifying that.

Unfortunately for me, none of the cars really stand out - there is something I dislike about each one, be it the triangular rear lights in the Lancer, the overly-simplistic and bland looks of the Mondy, the boot of the Accord, or the bumper and overhang of the Weekend. Perhaps the W211 might be the pick of the lot, but then again .....

Well out of the restricted options you gave, me thinks the Accord is the better looker... And if you ask my opinion on cars released in India, my vote goes to the AUDI Q7... Otherwise the black ferrari 599GTB or the SAAB aeroX..

The Mondeo has the most proportionate and car-like lines amongst those listed. It is a very smart looking car which looks good from any angle because of its very simple yet well-executed lines. This is what made the OHC such a big hit too.

All the others mentioned on the list have forced styling cues in several places, except maybe the C.
