My wife simply loved a Porsche and would go for any type of Ferrari. She loved the Twon & Country Minivan which was her daily commute when we were in the US and now she likes Tata Aria because of it's similarity with the Town and Country!!

Well, same goes for my wife too. She loves big cars. Any big car will do for her. She adores the looks of Safari like anything, but feels Scorpio might be better in other factors apart from looks. Though now because of me she also gets cool updates and have started liking sedans and hatchbacks, she still keeps on telling that our next buy should be a SUV.

She loves black Tata Safari, sedans like Skoda octavia, Hyundai Accent. She never liked our Ford fusion but one day when one of her friend told that her car is very spacious, she began to admire the FF's qualities.

She like cars, But she doesn't like me changing cars every 3 years.
We tested Linea, Safari and Scorpio (I kept this order intentionally), She said a big NO to the best two and obviously liked the same as what I wanted her to like.
She likes SUVs which are comfortable for a family where kids can sleep in separate seats.

No issues for our first car - Palio Black. Both of us loved it from the moment we saw the TD car!

No arguments on the next car too - CIVIC.
Now, colour is the issue. She wants black again. I am trying hard to convince her that CIVIC in WHITE is one of the best-looking cars in the WORLD.

She loves the Figo and I don't. However if money was not a problem she wants a SUV, butut not what Mahindra and Tata make but rather atleast a CRV.

I think this thread should have been a poll. Overall the Hondas, particularly Civic, seems to be favorite among ladies.

Yeah a poll would be a good idea.

I on the other hand noticed in this thread a lot of ladies having liking for SUVs. Same is the case with my wife too. But I don't like the high raised seating - feels like I am driving a truck or a bus, but I might end up driving one . Yeah she likes Civic too.

My wife once wanted to buy a Spark with her savings. I crushed it (the savings as well as the dream)!!
If money was not a problem, she wants to go with the CRV.

Yes, why not

And lug around an empty loading bay we wont use?
Yes, why not
Pranav, please go back and tell your wife that she is super-cool! Choosing a seemingly impractical vehicle, just for the fun of it, says a lot about your personality (e.g. us idiots who can use an antique SWB Jeep as a daily driver).

My "partner-in-crime" loves to sleep whenever she's in a car. It doesn't matter if it's only a short drive, she'll still doze. So, when I asked her what her favourite cars were, she said anything that runs smoothly & doesn't make too much noise. When I asked to pick one, she said Fiat Linea because her dad had been a full-on Fiat fan & she'd caught the craze, & she said the new one looked like it "purred". Don't ask me what that means.
