In no particular order:
Fiat Palio 1.6 (Awesome fun)
Ford Mondeo (fun to drive and good presence)
Skoda Octavia (Fuel efficient Tank anyone?)
Tata Indica (Commendable Indian effort)
Hyundai Tucson (perfect soft-roader)

Biased slightly to European origin cars I guess!

Default Hehe

In strictly random order:

Octavia RS (except the service issues)
Mahindra Classic in Red!
Tata Safari (dont know why, but its got something)
Zen(the old one,not the facelift,not the estilo)
Swift

I assumed that Indian cars are cars that are available in India at a more or less decent price (if not new,used). Otherwise, Cayenne anyone?
