Since I am pretty sure about the previous identification, I will go ahead and post the next one.

Here is a non-sporty car, and a modern one at that for a change.

Well, since the distinctive "lozenge-shaped" Riley logo is visible, as is the word "Elf", that identification wasn't too hard!

Incidentally, that logo had the Riley name, in script, in the center.
Surrounding the Riley name was their slogan, As old as the industry--As modern as the hour.

It's not a Toyota Echo. Actually, it's not a Toyota at all.

Let me give some clues: The design was originally a hatchback, which is why the sedan looks a bit awkward. More importantly, it is the first car indigenously developed in that particular country (as opposed to older designs handed down from elsewhere). It was a big success, and has been exported to many countries. It was also sold in the UK as a badge-engineered version.

Perhaps the Proton Satria?

Not a Daewoo either. You can make out the company logo in the picture.

It's a Tata--but definitely not one of the bodacious tatas!

As to the exact model, it is clearly not a Nano.
The name on the side looks like it might say...Dicor(?), although it appears that the Indica model was the first indigenous design.
