Number 4

Very similar to the HQ, the Geely MR has its roots in the Daihatsu Charade from the mid-'80s. The difference is that this car can be fitted with more "sporty" powertrains.

Number 3

Until the Tata Nano arrives, the Suzuki Maruti 800 -- the "smallest car in production" -- will be the cheapest car you can buy in India and in other nearby countries (and even South America). Some versions of the Maruti have even arrived in Europe.

Number 2
It's almost twice as expensive as the cheapest car on the this list, but that doesn't stop the Cherry QQ from coming in at #2. This car sparked some trademark issues because of similarities to the Daewoo/Chevrolet Matiz.

Number 1

This car is well thought out, and lots of patents have resulted from the creation process -- from the Nano's powertrain to the assembly process itself. Will this car ruin the world? Some voices say that more cars on the roads imply more pollution, which is hard to argue against.
