My next car would be either a Hatchback or an SUV:

Honda Jazz (if it's under 7L, I'm really hoping it is)
If I opt for something bigger, it has to be an automatic, probably an SUV - Honda CRV (2.4 has an auto I guess).

I am really tired of driving manual while in mumbai city traffic moves at a snail's pace, it would be great if you don't have to keep worrying 'bout changing gears every few seconds... Clutch - gear change - step on the gas - 2seconds - Stop - Again repeat the same procedure a million times till you get home.

Bought SwiftD just a year back. So no changing for the next 3-4 years at least.

But considering Alto as second car.

After owning Palio Sports (India) and Mondeo (in UK), my next purchase would be either Linea or the Honda Civic. This will be 2009 end at the earliest.

I am waiting for the linea and the new corolla but definately price wise linea suits me the best.
I have seen the new corolla a lot on roads in Australia its a sweet sedan.

Both the cars are great lookers.

Ok for now a top end Linea cheers:

Another option that I could contemplate as the next car is the Fiat Linea if it comes with a 120 BHP MJD engine. This can blow the socks off any mid-size sedan. Anything less is a compromise. Will stick to the first choice, New Lancer, in that case.

This is a tough one. Cars I like are totally out of budget. Guess I'll have to buy a secondhand vehicle. A RWD with a 3lit+ engine. If wishes were horses...

I am eagerly waiting for the Fiat Linea. But I will wait for at least one year after its launch to see how good the A.S.S is and any other niggling issues.

'Upgraded' to the Esteem now from the M800 (gave the M800 to my younger bro and took his Esteem ). As there are plans to buy a house/site, I don't see myself buying another car in the neat future. My next car:
Heart says: Pajero/Civic
Head says: Swift D/Getz D/used Scorp

Alternatively, I will just spruce up the Esteem and be content with it!

Land Rover Freelander. Hope Tata bring it to India.
Otherwise Fiat Linea is the second bet.

A Toyota Crown seems to fit your criteria perfectly!
