Mercedes Benz S-Class

The car id use to go to office or when Im just tired. Id use this as a family car as well.

Porsche 911 Turbo

For a quick spin around marine drive and to have some fun late at night.

Tata Safari DICOR

For outstation trips with friends and family or during the monsoons when the roads in Mumbai are just pathetic.Would love to have some nice screens in the car with an xbox 360 connected to it. Besides outstation trips

Suzuki Swift Diesel


With a Pete's tuning box in it - A car that I can use for chores or just for short trips or when Im concerned about fuel economy.

Mitsubishi Lancer Cedia

Id like to keep this as a project car and would love to modify it and make it faster and faster, even if it means doing something like removing the rear seats.

^^ Would be my ideal Indian car garage.

However the TOP 5 Indian cars IMO are

Maruti 800

Although its time is over and IMO should be phased out, this car really changed the car scene in India, Finally customers didnt have to put up with HM & Fiat's CRAP, It was fuel efficient, modern, and pretty good to look at.

Tata Indica

The first truly INDIAN car, something we should be proud of and with quality constantly improving improving one can not help but be excited about the next generation Indica


Hyundai Santro


Although not too many Indians had heard about Hyundai, the company was able to establish itself and really give Maruti a scare. I think the Santro continues to be amongst the top 5 selling cars in the country.

Reva

Another truly Indian car which is now being exported, As the technology gets better and better Im sure electric cars will become a viable alternative in cost concious India and Reva will be there to provide people with these green cars.

Toyota Qualis

The car that gave TATA a scare and grabbed the taxi market. Although it was outdated people still preferred it to the Sumo. Too bad Toyota replaced it with the Innova which never really did as well as the Qualis (atleast not in the taxi market)

I woo for these cars, not a fortunate one to own or drive any of these beauties. So ranking might not be on the best performance/ VFM but on aesthetic looks and power perception.
Skoda Laura
Mistubishi Montero
CRV New version
BMW 325di
Merc C 280
