That is true, but then I have noticed the same type of "combo" offered by various other manufacturers too time to time as part of some schemes. And the clauses of that additional extended warranty are different then standard warranty so it shouldn't be taken as a complete warranty even if it is offered as a combo package.

With 24 months warranty, the Liva & Sail U-VA better it as they offer a 36 month warranty, but the Unlimited Mileage warranty offered by FIAT for the Punto, is still the best in the cars being compared in this comparison - though it is highly unlikely that anyone will manage doing 1,50,000 kms in two years, but it reaffirms the manufacturer's commitment and confidence in their product.
Chevy's warranty and service packages have always been practical and benchmarks. Wish other manufacturers could also have offered packages like them. And as you also mentioned, its highly unlikely that anyone clocks more than 100K kms in 2 years so even if it looks a better deal in while talking numbers, it still not practical.

IMO a standard warranty of 3years/50K kms (if exists) is far more practical and sensible compared to 2years/100K kms but manufacturers know the risk involved in that and they don't offer such warranty.

ABS is standard in all cars except the Micra

Great compilation and comparison of all the cars. Couple of things I would like to point out:

-- The i20 Sportz version has only the rear defogger. It does not have the rear wash/wipe. That is present only in Asta

-- The i20 Sportz, in addition to ABS comes with EBD as well. Also I think its the only hatchback which has all wheel discs and also has the auto wiper feature (dont know how useful this feature is though )
