Cars that make you smile.

Recommended Posts

I dont mean the cars from the movie "CARS" which made the audience smile with the quirks and actions, I mean those cars that make you have a big grin everytime you drive them just because you can enjoy thrashing them around just as you would with something like a Go Cart!!

So let us divide these into categories:

Below Rs.5 lakh

Rs.5 Lakh-Rs.10 Lakh

Rs.10 Lakh-Rs.20 Lakh

Rs.20 Lakh-Rs.30 Lakh

Rs.30 Lakh-Rs.50 Lakh

Rs.50 Lakh-Rs.75 Lakh

Rs.75 Lakh and above

SUVs below 10 Lakhs

SUVs between 10 and 30 Lakh

SUVs above 30 Lakh

Spots cars below Rs.1 Crore

Sports cars above Rs.1 Crore

What would you think would you think will be the ideal drivers car in the ranges given above??

Please Copy paste the whole table and give your answers alongside the category.

Happy Posting!

Well, I don't drive, but let me take a shot at it, based on my own opinion on the data I've read in magazines, people's experiences, and my own experience closely observing and traveling in these cars.

I hope my post doesn't seem unnecessary, and apologies in advance to mods/anyone who is offended.

Below Rs.5 lakh

This one is easy' date=' its got to be the 1. WagonR K-series 2.Zen1.0L 3.Swift.

Rs.5 Lakh-Rs.10 Lakh

Again easy. 1.DZire/Swift 2. Fiesta 1.6 3. SX4

Rs.10 Lakh-Rs.20 Lakh 

1. Laura TSi 2. Civic Hybrid 3. Still thinking

SUVs below 10 Lakhs

This is obvious-

1. Scorpio mHawk (and the Xylo, Bolero with similar engines) 2. Safari 2.2!for the road presence. 3. Fusion Tdi (mini-SUV)

SUVs between 10 and 30 Lakh

1.Endeavor 2. Fortuner

OK! I went a little crazy with this. Have not driven most of these. I wish to someday though.

 

The most expensive cars I have ever driven are a Merc S500 and Ford Saturn(not too expensive but stillsmiley11.gif) in Japan.

A Porsche Cayenne test drive in Delhi.

Errr, I;m not a diesel fan so I would probably go for the petrol. I anyways dont expect a under-5Lac car to be powerful. I drove the Figo that a friend of mine bought last week and it was the handling that impressed me the most. My family owns a 2007 WagonR and the difference in the drivability and the overall feel of the car was simply unbelievable.

As i said above, I know the petrol isnt powerful but I dont expect a under 5 lac car to be powerful. I am fine with a not so powerful, well built car with great handling for less than 5 lacs. I will stick to my choice of the Figo Petrol and continue to say no thanks to diesels.
