Good topic...Evrytime I look at some car, I felt them expressive. Some that comes to mind right away:-
Suzuki A-Star: The lady with pretty eyes & lashes
Chevy Cruze: The angry young man
Nano: The happy-jolly clown
VW Beetle: Glum little kid who was just scolded by its parent

When I was a kid this is exactly what used to come to my mind when I saw a car on the road. As if it had a character.

punto : "Teeth alignment gone awry"
old santro : "Close your mouth while you eat"
Figo : Face resembles a breed of snake.

Interesting, I've also seen faces on the cars.

Mistubishi Lancer - a shy girl biting her lip.
Punto - The muzzle of a sad Labrador.
Amby - a tired pensioner

Once I was in a shop and when I came out of the shop and looked at my esteem, expression was exactly as if she was waiting for me. And looked angry as well because I got little late. This is the only one expression I remember.

Punto from front looks like Stewart Little, very cute car.

OHC - Very smart and professional
NHC - trying to be smart
Getz 2nd Gen - Eagle eyes, kinda 'No-Fear' logo
Amby - very Bovine (I think it ll give milk also)
118 NE - Feline and kinda of confident
BMW X5 - aggressive, killer instinct and seems to unleash a terror when i see in my ORVM
Civic - mean, very mean
Swift Dzire - pregnant, but at the back
Octavia - SOLID-bring it on'
Scorpio (1 and 2 gen) - Wild buffalo / Bison
Indica - smiliing from ear to ear (something like this )
New Ford ikon - Python / Boa constrictor eyes
Spark - cute but pampered girl
Matiz - cute and reserved
Zen first gen - Understated and Accepting

A very interesting thread. I think front view especially the grill or bonnet+grill gives the expression.

@Mi10 - waiting for the rear list.

Nice thread.

My contribution : Successful, accomplished, understated class...a look that screams self-confidence. Like that 40 year old self-made tycoon:
