Oh ok . I didn't know that Swift Vxi didn't have rear wiper.
My 2002 Zen VXi has rear wiper but doesnt have rear power windows, so I used to think rear wipers arent that big a deal, but then in 2002 my Zen Vxi cost me 4.65 Lacs. I think we are spoilt for choices now. Another thing I found that its only hatchbacks that have rear wipers and even top end sedans dont have rear wipers, thats another reason why I thought they werent really a big deal.

I have no idea man! I am new to this side of the world. Thats why I wanted opinion on prices... I will be checking with them again this weekend... so will use all the knowledge gained....

And slowly but steadily i see ads by maruti dealers putting up discounts from 10-20k (10k by Garuda and 20k by pratham motors in Bangalore). I am guessing the discounts will increase with time as more new car launches are due

revhappy,
Rear wipers are supposed to be there for a logic. Compared to the hatchbacks, the sedans have the rear glass in angles less than or equal to 45 degrees. So there is not much chance of water staying there. While in hatchbacks, the glass is at times close to 90 degrees.

Go for the ZXi, you would love it. Since you are not going to use the car much interms of kms covered in a month, petrol wont be hitting much on your pocket.

The features offered in ZXi are way ahead for the hatch segment + the refinement i felt was better than a VXI.

I too first was planning to get a VXi + Abs but changed my mind and went for ZXi instead and i love my decision.

The prices quoted for the car are i think quiet good.

For accesorries some of them are way too high.

invincible7...I too am inclined for the Zxi. But wait period is a bit insane and also am guessing automobile industry is heading for price war in mid 0f jun/ jul after all the new car launches. So am not hurrying my decision. Heard from my friends that Ford Fiesta S may launch a new discount scheme of approx 80k which will make the car around 7.4-7.6 OTR. Auto scene is getting interesting day by day... am waiting and watching closely

I would suggest stick to Swift Zxi than Vxi spending so much. It has all the features what you are looking for.
