Does someone know for sure if the facelifted ZXI variants get these two features? If yes, the ZXI is also a good deal (in addition to the Titanium).

Just do a check. I believe it comes with ABS too.

Air Bag is only for Driver and not passenger but no ABS + EBD

yes, thats why even though figo is old still mind and soul turns towards it. I am trying to find a used Amaze VX , if I get one then good else FIGO is the way. Not sure by the time (1 week of june) I will finalize figo, Tata may come with some surprise launch date for BOLT (again delay and confusion , frustration . I should not raise expectation too much from TATA but then TATA also know if they cannot deliver this time better than competition then they will out.

Does the Titanium variant come with bigger brakes still? I couldn't find a mention of it in the site or brochure.

Yes yes it does. The bigger diameter rotors are due to the ABS. ABS = larger dia rotors.

From our Official review of the Figo:

Quote:
For the record, the ABS-equipped Figo we drove comes with larger front discs (258 mm) and rear drums (203 mm), compared to 239 mm / 180 mm for the non-ABS models.
