Well, many of us have 2-3 cars, sometimes more... All the cars are for our daily use & these are the normal hatchbacks, sedans, SUVs, etc.

But if given an option to buy something as your weekend drive, your 3rd or 4th car, what would it be? It can be brand new or second hand, does not matter.

Please be practical too!

My weekend car would be one among the below (in the same order) -

1) Mahindra Thar CRDe 4x4:

- Military green colour
- Front & rear bumpers removed & replaced by chrome bull bars
- open top
- bucket seats in front
- fat A/T tyres with chrome alloys
- winch
- chrome anti roll bar
- snorkel
- and the likes

2) Mitsubishi Lancer:

- dark blue or Lambo orange colour
- Low profile wide tyres with deep dish alloys
- Scissor doors! [glasses]
- Projector headlights with angel eyes
- LED tail lights
- High end music system with 2 subs & LCDs
- free flow exhaust
- and the likes

3) Pajero 4WD:

- black or white colour
- Fat tyres with chrome alloys
- Modified front & rear bumper to make it more off road worthy
- winch
- snorkel
- and the likes

Although I am not in a position to buy a weekend car right now, but if I could, it has to be Mahindra Thar Crde or a Refurbished Jeep MM540, with fat rubbers, fog lamps, cockpit bars. Great to putter around town and do a little bit of off-roarding in those [:)]

If at all 2 cars ,

My weekend car would be:-

Either a Skoda YETI 4X4:-
Having driven and tasted(not tested)this car myself I am simply in love with this SUV.
It has all-in-one package as I want for myself.
Hatchback sized for the practicality and ease of driving in city.
Sedan ride and handling for cruising around.
4X4 and enough power and other features for crushing continents.

Or I'll buy a Mitsubishi PAJERO:
This may be old but still which other SUV drives better than this(Leave Yeti here as its not a hardcore SUV)?The answer is none!
Rest the pros and cons of Pajero are known by everyone,or copy the points mentioned by Raj.

My Weekend car would definitely be a SUV.
I might go for Toyota Fortuner or recently launched Mahindra XUV. :-)
I am great fan of offroading. I used to do offorading on my bike Baja Caliber. I know many of you migth be surprised reading this. But i have travelled 600 odd Km in one day on my bike when i was on tour to Panshet. I went to Tungareshwar Mountain in summer on my bike. :-)

First of all, I am not in a position to owner a second car let alone the luxury of owning a week-end car.

But if at all something happens then it would be "Range Rover Evoque" with red body and white top.

A battered old Willy's with a heart of gold and no canvas top. Because in life, at least once, one should own a convertible.
