    Well basically i dont think there is any difference as now many companies have started manufacturing there cars in India. Like the quality is the same which keeps improving with the amount of money you spend.

    Right now all the major brand like BMW and Merc have setted up their manufacturing plants in India and as of it all the cars are now made in India. So basically there is no difference.

    Some cars are India specific only (e.g. M800). Some cars are local to India and South East Asia (e.g. Honda City). Some cars are global (that includes almost all cars > 8 lakhs). These global cars are 95-98% same all over the world. But because in India they are sold as premium cars, they have more luxury features. For instance, the Corolla in US and India are identical in specs except for trim features such as interiors, built-in premium stereo, alloy wheels, etc. Merc and BMW are identical.

    Some cars are made in India via the CKD (complete knocked down) route - e.g. Toyota Camry. Again such cars are identical.

    If you are going with difference between local and imported car then there is no big difference. Quality standards ar maintained by the company at all costs no matter where the car is made.

    Yes... there's no much difference but for the luxury and the price.. The price is more only due to the import duties and taxes....

    And these cars are being built in India itself nowadays...

    Well the big difference is of the option and price. Like in foriegn countires like USA you would have lot of option available but in india you would get standard car and second thing is that you would have to pay a lot more to have the same thing in india when you can have the same for lot less in US.
