Prado, SUV with the comfort of a car, stunning looks and luxurious interior
Pajero, the 3 diamonds remind me of Dakar
Endevour, its huge, and ford is synonymous with SUVs
Vitara XL7, The Maruti backing, gives you the courage to buy an expensive toy and screw it up by offroading.
ML320, Very responsive and crisp interiors.

I would like to change mine a bit -
1. Still the Merc E250 - W124

2. Palio/Petra 1.6 - Will add the JTD version too when it is launched

3. Octavia Rider 1.8/1.9 TPi/TDi - Performance with VFM/Performance with VFM and FE and a host of other stuff.

4. OHC 1.5/Lancer 1.5 - Waiting for my warranty to finish so i can start modding the lancer. These cars are excellent Boy racers when modded.

5. Mondeo - i Have sat in 3 different Mondeos in the past month and have experienced 200 kmph in one. Coupled with the raspy note of the engine and explosive performance, i want this car.

Not in order of preference.

1. Honda Accord 3.0 V6
2. Skoda Octavia R S
3. Ford Mondeo.
4. Toyota Corolla
5. Mercedes Benz C - Class

Honda Accord V 6 accroding to me is the best saloon for the price. It is super reliable, has great performance and is quite comfortable.

Skoda Octavia RS for its performance, ride, handling and build

Ford Mondeo for over all performance.

Corolla for performance, reliability

C class for every thing.
