We, at IndianAuto, appreciate our celebrities, but in all honesty, we appreciate their wheels more! Being from a Humble background, Nawaz isn’t very keen on owning fancy and luxurious vehicles. In fact, we could only confirm two cars in his garage; a Ford Endeavour and a Mercedes GLS. Here we describe both the cars owned by Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

The first car in Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Car Collection is an old-model Ford Endeavour. Automobile enthusiasts already know of the car’s off-road prowess. For the uninitiated, the Endeavour is a brilliantly capable vehicle, with a torquey diesel engine and proper All-wheel-drive system thrown in for a good measure. If you aren’t a fan of taking the beaten path, Ford also offers a smaller diesel engine and a rear-wheel-drive system. Thus you get all the road-presence but in an extremely frugal package. The SUV offers a very spacious cabin as well, with the first- and second-row seats being extremely comfortable for everyone. Sadly, the third-row seats are not very comfortable for adults, but children would be fine there.
Ford Endeavour offers two engine options: a 3.2-litre turbo-diesel and a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel. Maximum power and torque figures for both the engines are 200PS/470Nm and 160PS/385Nm respectively. Both engines are paired to a 6-speed automatic gearbox, but the bigger 3.2L engine gets AWD whereas the smaller 2.2L engine is offered with an RWD system. The Ford Endeavour competes with Toyota Fortuner and a lot of upcoming cars, like Tata Gravitas, MG Hector 6-seater, Daval D90 by Great Wall motors.

While most of the celebrities in India prefer to buy themselves luxury cars from big brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Volvo, Bentley, and Rolls-Royce, Nawaz had never indulged in such extravagance himself.

It was Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s first solo outing and was both critically acclaimed and commercially successful.
Mercedes-Benz GLS is available in two engine options: a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel engine and a 3.0-litre turbo-petrol. The former produces with 260PS and 620Nm of max power and torque respectively, while the latter produces 333PS of peak power and 480Nm of peak torque.
