Good collection of pics!!
I took a few pics during my trip to India last year,and I was really amazing to see so many goodies plying on the roads. A huge chunk in B'lore,and the rest in different parts of Kerala.
Isn't the garage with the H2 & the LS460 the same thats been mentioned in the 'Imports in Delhi' thread?

I was surprised at the number of A6 and S Classes on road. They really are like common cars now.

Yes, they are at the same petrol station / garage but it seems the cars are different in most pictures. It seems to be a good turnaround of these expensive cars.

1. The XC90 and the S80 are both consulate cars (blue "CD" plates). Saw them in and around Chankya Puri.

2. Not private.

3. yes it was a LS460, there were two - one white and one blue. Was more surprised to see that there than the 2 hummers.

And here are the pictures (not very clear, through windscreen of a Swift)








4. Chrysler Voyager: It sure was a surprise as well. When taking its picture, my girlfriend goes, "Is this car even worth taking a picture of? It does NOT look like a imported car at all!!" Was smiling then!!


Thanks once again

Quite true,redcandle.
Over the past few years,the number of imports has gone up so quickly,everytime I go back I get to see more & more imports within a short span of time.
A voyager??
Amazing to see how anything & everything gets imported..

Dont get me wrong, the voyager is a very comfortable car. Most high-end minicab (private taxi) drivers here in London prefer this as their van.

But this model (its not the latest) does not look any special.

Absolutely..I agree that it is a comfortable vehicle. Just that its not one of the best MUVs to import. I'd understand if it was an Odessey/Odyssey or the Sienna,which are far better in reliability.
