2017 was a great time for car buyers in terms of price because GST had just rolled out and there was no 20% cess apart from 28% GST.

That must be right, Creta - 2015. My bad.

Amongst Indian Cars:
Fiat Linea T-Jet: too much of vaccilation on my part and horror stories of Fiat service by umpteen number of naysayers did it in.

International models:
Honda NSX (1st gen): Drove it. Loved it. Hugged it (literally). Cried over it as i coud not buy it (as i was a student and was living on a pittance)

Caterham Super Seven: There's nothing like it in this world. Again lack of Vitamin-M and huuuuuge insurance costs (being a foreign student in UK) didn't let the dream getting fulfilled. Forced a Brit friend of mine to buy it though! Initially he liked it but after he got married, his wife was not particularly pleased with the Cat! Hence many a times, I popped over to his pad to drive the Cat on the lovelty UK "B" roads over weekends!

Land Rover Defender 90 short wheelbase V8 Petrol:
It could literally climb walls. But 3.5kmpl in fuel efficiency put paid to my dreams.

Going by the opinions on this thread, looks like the most common cars that is making to this "regretting-for-NOT-buying" list is from Fiat.
Did someone say "You never realise the value of something until it's gone" ?

I don't regret buying anything from Maruti-Suzuki till date, especially the Baleno. Though I regret missing out on SX4 & S-Cross Petrol, both of which weren't available when I bought the Ford Aspire Diesel in 2015.

Wish I got an Evo X during it's rare and limited run in India. To top it off, it ended up being the last Evo too.

Whoever grabbed those were pretty lucky.

Toyota Corolla
The first regret that comes to mind is buying a brand new Honda City in 2008 instead of a 1.5 year old used Toyota Corolla. We chose the new honda city. The price was almost the same! Enough said :(
