Me too. But doubt whether I'll be able to afford it. The burnt orange color on the Murano looks fiesty.

And the VW. Love the Jettas and the Passats.

I hope, BMW and VW enter the market soon. By the time they enter the market, I should be able to afford one

The poll let me, so I voted for all four!

The more, the merrier! --> I can't think of a single manufacturer that I would NOT want to set up full-fledged operations in India.

Of course, it you want me to choose a specific car from the above four manufacturers for them to launch in India...

1) Realistically, I would choose Nissan for the new Micra/March or Renault for the new Clio. These B+ segment hatches are both based on the same platform. This is one car that will leave the Swift for dead.

2) In a dream world - it would be a tie between the VW Golf GTi and the BMW 130i or 120d. Both fabulous hot hatches that handle like a dream - but both a little out of my budget.

Hey, I've ended up voting for all four manufacturers again!

I voted for Nissan. It's the only brand which might sell reliable cars that I can afford. VWs will certainly be more expensive and I'm not much of a Renault fan.
When it comes pure passion, there is just one undisputed king - a marque that is not listed here. Do I need to say which one?

Strange.. but no one's mentioned Lexus here. And neither Citroen which is coming to India next year with a D-segmenter. The C6.
