Well this was the situation years back. These days many new car models come with either airbag/abs or both or have a optional model for each variant. Take for example the Figo or TUV. Reasons for not getting the top model include:
  • You dont want to spend extra on fancy stuff like alloys/roof rack/interior decor etc to name a few.
  • You want to add up accessories with time instead of committing the money initially.
  • You want to customize your alloys, ICE without wasting money replacing OEM given ones.

I observed most people go for mid-low models (I hardly notice Swift Z**, most are V or L). However in case of Ecosport its opposite, most people seem to have bought the top spec ed Titanium & Titanium+ just for the styling (Alloys & Roof rails)
