I like the rear of Getz( Non Prime - 1st one) , Civic , Previous Gen Accord
and our very own Fiesta.

Dislike : SX4 , Baleno and Indica( All generations) . How could i forget the Dzire!!!

2001 Honda Accord Coupe lights were the best according to me and also
2003 Infiniti fx and G 35 coupes. those LED's are awsome.

Isnt that a greater problem? They ALWAYS drive with their lights on High beam! But then, we already have another thread on that.

Nice thread! One of the best designs of tail-lamps IMO, on a car sold in India are these.

My all-time favourite tail-lamp design is this one. Clean, simple and beautiful flowing lines. Elegance as I define it. The old gen CL and the W220 S-Class had them.

The WORST design I've seen of late is the new-gen Mondeo. This is a pic from the Dubai Motor Show '07. I wonder what they were smoking, to evolve from the first pic i.e. the previous gen Mondeo, to this latest gen Mondeo.

Apart from the ones I mentioned above, a few other designs that are also worth applauding. Pics clicked by me.

The Audi Q7 V12 TDI

Infiniti FX35 SUV

I think the Maserati has done a lovely job with the Quattroporte as well, as have Nissan with the 350Z.

OTOH, Lexus could have definitely matched the headlamps of the LS600h to something better at the rear. Ditto with the new Landcruiser! Dumpy looks.

Have to say the CL rear looks awesome.

But how about the front and rear lights on this?

The rear lights looks absolutely stunning if seen at night!!

The worst designs, for whatever parts you can think of, can be seen on the DZire.

I like the tail lamps of all new generation Volvo cars and trucks. They simply gel along with the frame of the car...

Well, i started off the thread for cars currently sold in india only, but its moved onto a general direction.
I guess the mods can change my first posting to all cars and move this thread from the indian car scene forum.

OMG Ishan thanks for that how could I forget that Maser !! Looked insane at night. Remember digging up a whole bunch of them after my Europe trip where I first saw it in the flesh. The front wasn't that inspiring though. What an unbalanced car, the 3200GT !!
