Default 15"

Saw the Golden shade SX4 ZXI at Pratham Motors. They have got only one car as of now, top end model ZXI. The one on ORR near Intel etc.

It's parked at the 1st floor storage where they keep their stock. If you ask about the car at the test drive counter in their show room, he will take you to the car.

Looks, pretty decent. The rear looks are comparable to Verna. The best part is the tyres, The tyres look so huge, they are either 15" or 16" on the ZXI. They keys were not there when I went there, so couldn't check out the boot. Heard Boot space is cool. The Car's rear seets do look luxurious. Need to check in detail once they move it to the show room, thats by tuesday I believe.

does gold mean copper? why do these people keep such names for colours! ozone blue, mint green, and the likes. some even consider peach and apple for their colours!

i shall try looking tomorrow if possible.

Thanks pogusingh. I saw this message and asked my folks at home to tune into "Indian Idol". They are pretty impressed by the looks. I now have 4 more people at home eagerly awaiting the launch ...

Yes it was a RED SX4 with beige interiors and looked awesome, I just hope it given Honda City a run for its money. it has been just present without real competition for some time( although off late fiesta is picking up )
Lets get the pricing out .......

with these tyre sizes and no calibration to the speedo they are gonna have a big speedo error. the correct size should be 205/60-15 not 16".

the 2 tyres sizes given are not of the same overall dia. the difference is 18mm.

with 205/60-15 the Od difference would have been only 6mm.
205/55-16 will also maintain a good OD.

yup hydra 205/50-17 should fit as well.

lots of options.

205/60R16? That means you can upsize to freakin' 17 inches if you get a 50 profile tyre!!! Wow!
