Hey GeekSrik

Please do not be put-off by the pricing; Nothing is confirmed.
The car was on 'under-cover' display at Rohan Noida and I took a long, deep look. It looks nice - a tad bit tall tough due the 16" alloys.
Since the Sun was way too strong at midday, I was not able to take any decent photos; have got a copy of the brochure though.

Pricing: Every body is tight lipped. My friend at MUL states that they have a hint but he is unsure. He will be calling me during the day to confrim prices though.
As a hint, he mentioned ExShowroom to be about 6.00 for Vxi and 6.80 for Zxi.
Be patient - Let time raise the curtains.

Cheers

Whatever I could manage
There will be no delays in posting the firm prices as soon as I get the 'confirmation' call. Watch this space!
Cheers

Sorry Geek - Will not be able to help you much with the color . On second thoughts, feel the Red is very close to that of Swift.

The controls on the steering are a first in India, I guess. I remember some recent car that had planned on giving steering controls but decided to move it to the handle of the rear passenger door as it could distract the driver.
Countering views from 2 manufacturers eh?

Ok official prices out[exshowroom delhi]:

SX4 VXi -> 6.15 L
SX4 ZXi -> 6.85 L

Pricing differential between vxi and zxi does not seem that much compared to the goodies you get with the zxi,
