I am going to name Indian cars only, which I have driven some time,

1) Jypsy-- I know it is uncomfortable But what the heck, I love it. It cann beat mahindra's in their own game.
2) Indica Turbo-- Got a test drive. That baby's gonna my next car.
3) Scorpio-- Driven the CRDE and it is good for a mahindra-- new improved going to e out any time. Can not resist to test drive it.
4) Swift -- Yeah yeah it has great looks and I had driven it hard enough to get the abs lights on. Just loved the Fun.
5) Owr own Premier Padmini WNF 5196-- Sad my dad sold it in 2004 though. It had been a brother to me. What ever I know about cars started from it. I really miss it. And yes It was a RWD sooooo uncomon in todays cars.

The best SUV on Indian road is the Mahindra Scorpio.

Makes you feel like a roaring Lion on the indian roads.

1. Palio 1.6 GTX. Doesn't cost too much; great fun to drive.
2. Maruti 800. When you are stuck in a traffic jam like me every day, its the best way out.
3. Ambassador. I get misty eyed when I think of it. Did most of my early driving in it.
4. OHC any model. Sleek, quiet, not flashy.
5. Maruti Baleno. Much better performer than its been given credit for.

my five fav cars

m800 , i have been driving this car for last 10 years , one was non ac and then the ac delux model

skoda , any model even though i m scared to buy one after reading the costs of spares, it comes across as one of the sturdiest models.

hyundai accent. though not everyone is in favour of this car, my dad's accent hasnt given us a single problem in last five years of driving.

optra, any model. this is just for the looks. i really like the car.

palio. any model. i think it is one of the good small cars for any kind of driving.
