vehicles that can be a great dadagiri car could be-

Mercedes ML 350
Audi Q7
Range rover

indian ones
scorpio to some extent

then there can always vehicles meant to look mean- CL 340, green Army gypsy with insignias and beacon.

PS- In mumbai you can see some dada giri cars actually having nos. 5151 that is Dada when written in marathi.

No doubt Rolls, Merc or Beems have that aura that comes out of them, but purely because of the big bucks it involves

But you generally dont get the feeling that it carries a burly man inside, like when you have a Scorpio coming full speed behind you.

IMO a S class or a 7 series cannot be called a dadagiri car as they generally do not bully anyone on the road. we of course know that their owners are damn rich & powerful but they hardly show any dadagiri as most of them are chauffeur driven.

these cars have a huge road presence & are a status symbol & that is not what we are talking about in this thread.

we are talking about cars which forces you to make way for it, which makes you stay away from it & which injects some fear in you that you dont want to meddle with it!

The DadaGiri tag does not work for me! I'd only give way to an Ambulance! Others have to wail their sirens to beg for Way!! and yes surely i'd give way to the Ferarris, Maseratis, Porches only to look at their bums after getting an eye-full of their Front!
I 'd say with conviction that few cars can match the Scowl of my VISTA! At night If i sneak up on you from behind with my HeadLights on dim.. make way dude... That SCOWL is real Menacing! Mind it!!

For a mallu like me, no other vehicle sends shivers as much as a Mahindra Jeep fully chromed in your rear view mirror. Nothing else!

Made famous by Mohan Lal in many many movies of recent years.

Even today, a Mahindra Jeep on road commands respect. All else, both imported and desi, looks tame.

Hey Guys ,I may seem totally out of the tune.. But Here is my suggestion-
White Xylo with a bull guard ahead and a crash guard at the back, with chrome looks totally perfect
I own one, and after an upgrade from a sedan to a beast, i now understand what it feels when your'e moving on a road w/o the divider and the cars from the opposite side give you way!!

Default No car is dadagiri car.

There is no such thing as dadagiri vehicles.

Rolls, Jags, Bentleys, BMW, Mercs? Too expensive and classy for the driver to indulge in bullying driving.

Safari/Scorpio and other SUVs? For a minute you may get carried away and think you are the bully behind the wheel of these trucks. But that is just an illusion. You still can't run any one over or push any one over the side. Try doing that you will get thrashed royally. I have seen many Scorpio/Sumo drivers beaten up balck and blue by the members of the public for causing accident by their reckless driving. So, it is just an illusion that you own a "dadagiri" vehicle. Live in a fool's paradise, if you think so.
