Default My TOP 5 Indian Cars

1) Any Merc C or E class diesel - Fantasy cars
2) Mitsubishi Pajero 2800 - First love (have been seeing this highway cruiser on GT Road-NH1 since childhood)
3) Tata Safari 2.0 Turbo or Dicor - Indian counterpart of first love, worth flirting
4) Tata Indigo TDI - Sensible choice to get married - realtively inexpensive to own, operate and maintain - does the job
5) Skoda - Octavia 1.9 TDi / Laura 1.9 PD- Possible second wife.

P.S. No offence meant to anyone - Just making the ranking interesting. BTW I don't really have a way with women and am not married yet.


Purely Indian Top 5 - Diesel
1) Tata Safari 2.0 Turbo or Dicor
2) Mahindra Scorpio CRDe
3) Tata Indigo TDI
4) Tata Indica Turbo
5) Maruti Esteeem D

Top 5 Petrol (Less than Rs. 12 lakhs)
1) Skoda Octavia 1.8 Turbo
2) Honda Civic 1.8
3) Mitsubishi Lancer 1.5
4) Fiat Palio 1.6
5) Hyundai Santro 1.1

i think the topic was the Top 5 INDIAN CARS

1. Standard's Herald/Gazel
2. HM Ambassador
3. PAL Padmini
4. Contessa
5. 118 NE
If it was top 5 Indian Made cars

1. M 800
2. Zen
3. Esteem

Yup the topic is quite misleading. It should've been "Top 5 cars available in India" if we've to consider all the cars which each one has been listing!
