When most people think about their dream car, they imagine cars such as a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Mercedes, Lexus, etc.  However, some people like to keep it simple. Those reasons include style, fuel economy, and technology.

So let’s take a look….

1. Skoda Octavia

Skoda Octavia has come a long way from its debut in 1996. The brand sells more than 5 million units in India and now it wants to up its game with Skoda Octavia (facelift). Skoda has worked on few things on the outer part of the car. The bumper has been enhanced to give a wide view from the front. While the front grille bears the company logo with gloss black finish, the new Bonnet gives it a more striking look. Tail lamp and the fog light of the car have been upgraded to LED setup.

2. Toyota Innova Crysta

Arguably the most successful Indian passenger vehicle of the 21st century, the Innova has crushed all competition to stay the unchallenged king of the MPV segment for over a decade. And despite several price hikes during its decade-long rule, its fan following has only grown. Why it commands such incredible loyalty is obvious. There’s simply no other MPV that’s quite as good. And that was the biggest challenge for Toyota’s engineers when they set about the task of developing the all-new Innova

3. Tata Hexa

Being at the right place at the right time is very important. Tata Motors is certainly right with the timing of the launch of its all-new premium sports utility vehicle Tata Hexa. The premium SUV, coming after the Indian automaker’s latest hit Tiago, ensures a rather improved environment for the brand in the marketplace.

4. Jeep Compass

Jeep, as we know, has two main model lines – utilitarian (Wrangler) and premium (Grand Cherokee). The Compass comes under the premium line. In terms of positioning, it will be placed below the Grand Cherokee in the company’s model line-up.
The Compass measures 4,398 mm in length, 1,819 mm in width and 1,667 mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 2,636 mm and ground clearance of 178 mm. This puts it between the Hyundai Creta and the larger Tucson in terms of length and width. However, with the technology on offer, we expect the car to be priced at par with (or higher than?) the Tucson.

The all-new 2017 Elantra is a groundbreaking vehicle that has been designed to deliver a class-above experience to the compact car segment. Our engineers set out to achieve a new standard for rigidity with a structure heavily composed of our Advanced High Strength Steel. This innovative structure has led to a new level of ride comfort with smooth, precise handling, improved interior quietness, and enhanced safety.

6. Mahindra XUV500

The XUV500 is powered by a 2.2-litre (2179 cc) “mHawk” turbo diesel engine similar to the one in the Mahindra Scorpio. It develops 140 bhp (104 kW; 142 PS) @ 3750 rpm and torque of 330 N·m (243 lb·ft) @1600-2800 rpm and is mated to a new 6-speed manual gearbox developed with assistance by Ricardo. In Delhi and NCR region, this SUV is available with a 2.0-litre (1997cc) mHawk diesel engine that produces same power and torque like its 2.2-litre mHawk diesel power plant.

7. Toyota Corolla Altis

The Toyota Corolla is the largest selling car in the world with over 40 million units sold across the years and generations. In India, the Corolla was launched in 2003 and continues to be the best selling car in its category. The current generation Corolla Altis has been with us for a few years now and has finally been put under the scalpel for a mid-life nip and tuck making, it much much better looking than before and also much sleeker.

8. Mahindra Scorpio

In April 2006, the company launched an upgraded Scorpio, dubbing it the ‘All-New’ Scorpio. At the Auto Expo 2006 in Delhi, Mahindra also showcased their future plans on the Scorpio model by showcasing a hybrid Scorpio with CRDe engine and a Scorpio based on a pickup truck. The hybrid, the first such vehicle developed in India, was developed by Arun Juara, a former employee of Ford. His senior, Pawan Goenka, a former engineer at GM, heads Mahindra’s automotive division and oversees the Scorpio project.

·         Rs. 9.29 to 15.44 lakh Ex-showroom Price, Delhi

9. Hyundai Tucson

Hyundai has really flourished in India in the last decade and has always delivered some of the most competitive global products. However, I still feel they demand a lot more premium than the competition always, which is a bit of a dampener. It’s not like they excel in one thing to justify this ask, almost like the proverbial ‘Jack of all and Master of none’ sorts.
Tucson really looks massive on road, yet not quite intimidating like the full-blown SUVs like the Fortuner or the Endeavour, I think this is what I just love about this machine.

10. Volkswagen Jetta

The Jetta was originally adapted by adding a conventional trunk to the Golf hatchback, and some distinctive styling (usually the front end, and sometimes slight interior changes). It has been offered in two- and four-door saloon/sedan, and five-door wagon/estate versions – all as four- or five-seaters. Since the original version in 1980, the car has grown in size and power with each successive generation.[1] By mid-2011, almost 10 million Jettas have been produced and sold all over the world. As of April 2014, over 14 million had been sold with the car becoming Volkswagen’s top-selling model.
