Always loved the Ecosport. The ride, handling, the engine and definitely the looks and build quality. Have ridden my uncle's Ecosport over 2500 Kms.

But the space on offer is not enough for our family of 5. So it would have been great to have the Ford Escape (kind of a daddy ecosport) in the INR 20L segment.

Mazda Miata hands down. Not very practical for our roads but the fun factor and vfm combination is unmatched. I owned one when I lived in the US and it was a total riot

The new 2019 (18?) VW Polo. They will have to modify it a bit to push it below the 4m length, but IMO it will sell like hot cakes.

I would love to see MPVs like Chevy Tahoe and Suburban being sold in India!

My choice is Tesla 3. Very obvious reasons. In EVs it is miles ahead of the competition. Ideally I will like more charging stations, and also equally important some service which can recharge to car on the road. Otherwise the last 15% of the charge will be never used.

I want the CHR to launch in India. It's such a unique and gorgeous looking vehicle that it can sell just because of that design!

Don't laugh, but I would like to see Suzuki Hustler/Xbee with a bigger hybrid engine on our roads.

It's a practical car with unique design , perfect for small family, should be affordable and wish it would have been here in place of Ignis !

I second that, but looking at Ford & Mahindra JV makes it a less probability in India. Other than Ecosport there is no option that's appealing. No wonder Brezza is enjoying the high sales figures.I was looking out for good compact SUV,but got to consider Seltos or Creta 2020... Somehow trying to delay my purchase thinking Volkswagen Troc or Kamiq might just be as good as others.

Actually Ford could have carried on the same business strategy in India as in the USA, only SUVs in the portfolio. Just like Jeep.

Well, we'll be moving on with the Hexa soon. The other pseudo suvs are not convincing. And the Harrier has been botched as a product.

VAG group will take ages (probably 2021) to launch these cars. Plus God knows what niggles & issues they'll turn up on our shores with. Although would have strongly considered the Kamiq/Karoq if they were available in Q1 2020.

The Volkswagen Arteon ! I've just fallen for its looks and I already like VWs engines, ride quality and build quality. I'm already disappointed that they have discontinued Jetta in India.

Nothing over the top. Just a Subaru BRZ for me.

I have always wondered why no other manufacturers have launched a direct competitor to Innova (a proper minivan) even after seeing its stupendous success for more than a decade.
