The carpet ride (even after 4 yrs and 50K kms) on my Corsa, and the fact that I have 5K songs to play around with on my Car PC

The Swift...um..hmm..not sure what I love about it, but it has a good balance of a lot of things so that is reason enough for me to love it

Mee too.

Also the suspension at 60+, the instacool AC and the fear on the autowallas faces when I come too close for comfort.

Palio 1.6 GTX SP

I love it for tremendous acceleration, handling and build. The engine sound and pulling power changes totally after 3000 RPM with a K&N.

OHC-VTEC : I love the engine sound, love revving it and love it when valves open up.

NHC : Love the interiors, refinement, and NVH characteristics. I pick the keys of NHC over OHC-VTEC if I have to run an errand and drive on crowded roads.

Indica : Like the economy aspect of it and believe or not, the constant hum of diesel sometimes works like a lullaby . Needless to say, I prefer to sit in back seat.

Marina - The way it sticks to the Highway after crossing the 3 digit speedo mark, and the smile i get at the fuel station.

Santro - Zip Drive in the city trafic.

I have a Petra 1.6. What do I like about her? That rock solid feel that comes from a heavy car. And I love the way she changes character. One moment she can be moving sedately and a press on the accelerator pedal later she transforms into a snarling beast - ready to devour the road. I love the sound of the engine above 4000 rpm and the way I am pushed back into the seat when she surges forward.

Great thread!!!
The thing I like about my Lancer diesel is its fuel economy.I am getting an average of around 20kmpl for the last 1 year.Also the reliability factor is a great confidence booster

Contessa - Cossetting feel, driving position, steering feedback and sense of limitless power. The car's sure to get me looks - some pleasant, some disgusting!
Fiat 1100 - Engine sound!

Maruti Versa DX2 - Amazing jack-rabbit style pick-up, High driving position, Ability to park in tight spots-courtesy, small turning radius, Ease of packing in 8 people at a pinch, Super-cooling Twin AC (not just blowers), Huge luggage space with the last row folded. Even the missus enjoyed driving it. The lack of protection during frontal collision was a minor worry as the car was driven almost entirely in the city. Finally sold it when I employed a chauffeur - the middle row bench seats were uncomfortable [if I had purchased the now discontinued SDX variant with its middle row bucket/ captain seats as in the some Innova and Tavera variants I would not have sold it].

Actually I love every thing in and on my car but most of all I love the way it sounds when it takes off the the note the muffler gives off is awsome and the next thing is when you turn off the car the hissing sound the simota bomb shell gives off it sounds something like a turbocharger

Merc C230K Coupe
I am loving the looks I am getting from chicks which I didn't get with my Black beauty... the 1995 Accord Coupe. I regret selling that car which in my opinion is much better looking compared to the puny merc that I drive now. Other than the looks department (and no leather), the merc is simply an awesome car and a joy to drive. I run out every now and then, even when at work, just to take a look at my car.

Added later: One more thing I like about my car is the on board computer. It has so many functions that I keep fiddling with it everytime I drive. I especially love the mileage indicator and range functions which help me adjust my driving style to get the max mileage on freeway. So even though the official EPA is 29 hwy, I was able to get 33 mpg by driving at 2500 rpm.

Hi Guys,

I have driven few cars across the segement and I feel my Car IKon Flair is one of the peppy car's to drive around and certainly the most responsive.

The driveability & handling too is cool.

AC in IKON is a a really powered one and the the overall looks still the best looking car though dated has true rally spirit...
