Waiting for the reviews of Tata Aria & Mahindra World SUV...

1. Scorpio
2. Swift
3. Gypsy
4. Manza
5. (Old) Zen
JLR is owned fully by Tata. Swift/Gypsy/Zen is 'Suzuki' which is Japanese. So if we only consider cars made in India, we left with M&M, Tata, Jaguar and Land Rover!!

My pick for the best 5 cars sold in India, not the ones fully Indian. Being from a middle class family with limited income, my preference is for VFM and not only performance.

1) Xylo
2) Indica Vista Quadrajet
3) Linea
4) Safari
5) ANHC

Leaving the premium brands like Audi,BMW,Mercs et al aside..My list would be something like this:

1). Fiat Linea T-jet: Good things come to those who wait..

And this one is fantastic..It has got both Power(Hail the turbo-petrol unit) and handling..A true driver's car for me..

Plus the fact it looks astonishing and comes from the owner of my fav brand-Ferrari..Good enough points to be sold to this car..

Admiration Guaranteed!

2). Laura 1.8 TSi: Turbo-charged petrols! Love'em all..

3). Fiat 500: Impractical? Yes.Expensive? Yes.Desirable? Yes,yes,yes....Want one?..Hell yes!!!

4).Honda CR-V: You need a SUV to complete your garage,no?..It might not be the best off-roader here..Of course,it's not! but there's no other SUV or Soft roader (under 25 lacs) that is as good as this one,period!

5). Palio 1.6 GTX: Hottest Hatch ever!

PS: I think I've just missed one soooper-handler..Yeah,the Mondeo! Love it too..

A bit late to the party!
Great thread indeed. Here is my list:

1) Previous Gen BMW 5 Series (E60) – What a car! Still cannot believe that it’s gone

2) Skoda Laura 1.8 TSI - understated fun!

3) Ford Ikon 1.6 – so consistent in bringing a smile every time I get behind the wheel (closing 7 years come December)

4) Face-lifted BMW X5 - for the great mix of extreme fun and family practicality!

5) Porsche Cayenne - High on wishlist
