first comes the luxury n niche like lambos,ferraris etc (obviously)
Any car that is rare has a decent road presence or it has to be huge enough to notice it (in case of the Q7's Endys,captivas n even our own desi safaris and scorpio's) in the D n D+ segment i must say the Camry has the best road presence.. from the time we bought it in 2006 till now most people dont fail to give second look..
accord also has decent presence but somehow its dimentions make it look smaller than the older gen which is not true on paper.

From what we normally see on our roads, I find best road presence of these three cars:

1) Sarari (even after looking at it for over 10 years, you can't ignore it today.)
2) New Honda Accord: May it be on road or parked, it is a statement.
3) BMW 5 series: Specially at night its front lights as well as tail lights put a hypnotizing effect.
