I have a big request:

Can you all also add the year till they were produced and also the different generations / upgrades during their period. That way this thread will also come in handy to the people who would be buying used cars.

Default Some more oldies

Some old cars that were imported and sold in India in the early days

Ford Prefect
Morris Minor
Morris 8
Austins
Willys Waggoner (Jeep station wagons)


Some newer ones that seem to have been overlooked:

Opel Corsa Sail
Skoda Superb

In the Tata lineup, the first on the platform was the Tatamobile (not a car), next came the Tata Estate followed by the Sierra. The Sumo was totally new platform that was introduced later. The Indica, Indigo & Marina etc. came thereafter. The Nano of course, being the latest addition.

Cheers,

Add Premier Rio to the list. Not sure if the launch year was 2008 or 2009 though.

Also as per the list Baleno Altura was launched in 2000 and the baleno sedan in 2001. IMO it should be vice versa.

The older Grand Vitara...the XL-7 V6 and the Mitsubishi Outlander are not seen in the list.

Then the recent additions like the VW Polo/Vento, Yeti, Santa Fe, BMW x1, Toyota Etios, Volvo XC60, Alto K10, Eeco, etc.


Regards.
