I dont understand why politicians are hated so much . There are so many other people ,for example businessmen who dont pay taxes , who evade duties , civil servants who take bribe , and the people who bribe or evade taxes are the first who should be prosecuted .

Another point is if politicians didnt make money at all would they command the same respect ?

My preffered choice would be the ambassador

In India the understanding of politician is when he has enough to afford all the above cars,hence we needn't really decide for them.Here they were travelling by Amby's and now they've moved on to Importing Custom made cars and thanks to the younger generation in politics we see style and practicality making a statement.They atleast know an SUV will take em everywhere they want. In Tn,usually the scorp's are seen totting party leader photos and the like.I think an SUV gives them a Stance especially an Innova.When you see a poltician passing by and he can be seen its nice and you really can relate to them may they be a part of your constituency or city.

I m selecting Ambassador for them !! I dont know what they will select for themselves. I heard that Govt spends a lot of money for the transportation of the these people. I just wish they do some good to the citizens too.

How about Nano? That way they can spend less on themselves and more on the country.

cheers

Would be a good option. At least we ll get to see a lot of exotics then.

It doesnt really matter which car they buy, at the end of the day its being bought from the common man's money.

I've still voted for the Ambassador.

The trusted Amby; because of the image, repair anywhere facility (for most of the models, at least), and arguably one of the best rear seat comfort. If you are smart enough, you could get the 1.8 petrol ambassador, and people would still be talking about your humility.

Amby, any day. No offence meant to HM. But we are so used to seeing them going around in Amby convoys. So, it's hard to associate another car with our beloved khadi-clad saviours. The Amby fits on a politician like his Gandhi cap, perfectly.

None of the above - I am seeing many of them in Prado or Land Cruisers these days.

Seriously Amby would fit the bill better - cheap (I feel they are not worth more than this), rear seat comfort. But as others have mentioned nobody roams around in amby's.
