    My name is Sudesh Menon and I have settled in India after 17 long years in Muscat (oman) and as i have made all necessary arrangements for other things in this country, the only problem iAm facing is tha of a Car. I need a car which can take in my entire family of 5 inclusive of myself and also i am looking at something powerful and valuable as i have had 2 SUVs back there in oman and i had to sell it off because i cannot bring it here due to some reasons. I would definetely prefer an Auto transmission vehicle over a manual one.

    Price wise nothing to beat the scorpio..

    However if you wish to stretch your budget you can think of ford endeavour new auto version.. It has a five spped auto transmission and is priced around 18 lakhs..

    Toyota fortuner is yet to launch its auto version in India but its manual transmisison has recd great bookings... But its expensive...

    So budget wise.. paisa vasool would be scorpio..
