I think the Chevrolet Beat which was available in India need a mention here. It was one of the most futuristic looking small cars in its time with the cool console, also seen in the "Transformers" movie. Its busy design looks fresh still IMO.

Agreed with BHPians on the Zen, especially the Carbon edition. I couldn't take my eyes off this well-maintained one with fatter tyres. A 30-year old design that still looks absolutely terrific .

So many decades since introduction, and still a breathtakingly beautiful car. Looks as good as any 2020 sports car.

Jeep @ 80!! Cant get better than that! VW/Skoda cars come second - timeless beauties and solid build as well to easily last a decade or two!

My third would be Pajero SFX!

For me it's the old Skoda Octavia. With its clean and straight lines, it's still a looker in my eyes even after almost two decades. The stance of this car is always an enthralling sight.

Second GTO there, Countach is one of the better designed cars. Still looks drop dead amazing after nearly 45 years. And I can say with certainty that will will continue to look breathtaking another half a century down the line.

Default Ageless Beautiful Cars launched in the Indian Market

As long as I can remember, our country never got the best looking cars that are available in other markets owing to many factors i.e, Government Policies, market maturity, Price sensitive market, customers happy with Tin can cars obsessed with mileage and A.S.S only ( many from maruti suzuki stable), Ugly Sedans from stretched hatchbacks, Qualis etc.

Now things have improved a lot and we are getting some really good looking cars from most brands except Toyota you can say.

What are the cars/Vehicles you feel we have had the pleasure of having them on our roads which will always age well no matter what. The Proportions, The Cuts, creases, lines, Tail lamps , Head lamps, Shark fin antennas etc all contributing to the beauty.

Few cars that I can think of are the Chevy Optra, Chevy Cruze, First Gen Jazz, 2nd gen Honda City, Honda Civic, The Ambassador, Hyundai Getz, Maruti Zen , The current gen Mahindra Thar etc


What are your picks!!
