Though car sales slowed down in 2011, India is expected to become the world's third biggest car market by 2020, according to J.D. Power and Associates.

India was one of the fastest growing car markets in 2010 with sales growth of 31 per cent.

Despite efforts by carmakers such as Ford, GM and Nissan to aggressively expand their Indian operations, domestic automakers continue to dominate the market.

However, car enthusiasts in India are abuzz about at least ten new car models. Speculation is rife that these cars, at some point or the other, will blaze Indian roads this year.
