Mine would be the ford fiesta (already booked it). But i always dream of owning a mean SUV, like the Audi Q5 / Q7 or the BMR X3 / X5, just for their looks, if not anything else. God, when will i have the money in my bank ??

I just got an i20 AT, so I'm not really looking for a car.

Hopefully, both i20 and Reva will last me another 5 years.

Also, hopefully, the Electric Vehicle (EV) technology would have advanced further by then and there should be more EV options so that I can replace my (then) aging Reva (in which I make plenty of compromises in terms of comfort and safety).

Just saw VW launching Golf diesel hybrid concept car. That would be nice. Use electric in the city and diesel on the highway - makes perfect sense.

I don't really know when I'll be able to resist its charm and buy a new car. If I manage to do that, it'll be a premium hatchback for sure.
Exactly the same feeling for a Zen here. My Zen is now 8 years old and it has been a pleasure owning it. It has served me extremely well both in the city and highways.

Everytime I thought I will replace it with a newer modern hatch, "I can live with it" feeling over rode the decission. I ended up retaining my Zen and owning 2 more cars in the process.

I don't know when I will sell my Zen, but when I do, I hope it will be a SUV.

Hi,

The list of cars here is assorted - sedans and SUVs and at different price points.
I imagine the prices of the sedans will look like this :

Chevy Cruze ( new) - 15 l
Jetta 1.9TDI Comfortline - 18l
Accord Diesel (no idea about launch date) - 22l+ perhaps

The SUVs would range themselves as:

1. Skoda Yeti - 10-12l
2. Honda CRV diesel - 24+ perhaps
3. VW Tiguan - is this 30l+?

So all these vehicles are at different price points and possibly satisfy the desires of a range of personalities (The Cruze would likely be ideal for a corporate go-getter in his 30s, whereas the Jetta would suit a lower profile personality with a preference for well engineered products, with the Accord right for honchos who prefer to be driven to work and to party and so on)

On the Jetta CRDI, I spoke with VW India and they assured me ( circa June 2009) that they're nor replacing the pump duse with the common rail any time soon - my assumption is we won't see the common rail in 2010- however I may be wrong.)
Regards

Volkswagen Polo, if priced rightly (unlike Honda Jazz or Skoda Fabia) Other ways, I am happy with a Chevy Spark.
