All said and done Ford spares are pricey, service just about alright and they are not all that reliable (every time i step in my Ikon these days, i pray hard) .... i hope they address these issues too along with upgrading their model line up

What's there to understand? :P
Dude, you completely misunderstood his question. He is not asking whats the diff btw 3 models, he is asking.

Petrol Diesel Difference
EXI 620000 710000 90000
ZXI 648000 749500 101500
SXI 710000 814000 114000

From equipments perspective the difference is not correct. For example, Difference between Petrol Exi and Zxi is 28,000 so diff between Diesel Exi and Zxi should be 28,000 correct? but its 39,500.

Why? Does the Diesel Zxi get more frills compared to Petrol Zxi? Nope...all frills are same. They how can it be? Diesel Zxi should be 738000 not 748500

Got it?

Does this mean that the SXI no longer offers the 6-CD in-dash changer anymore ?? This is surely a disappointment. They should have continued with it and just added the functionality to play the MP3 CDs.

This will obviously have an adverse effect on the fuel economy compared to before....right

You are right. I agree with your viewpoint.

Whoops .. got it now. No clue though, they're probably just trying to capitalise on the diesel advantage.

Yes it would have a minor impact, but anyone opting for the S variant most likely won't have FE as a priority.

I just read in todays paper that warranty for Fiesta is 2years/1,00,000km.
Was this there before too?

Nope, mine was a 1-year guarantee, and I had to pay some money for an extra year's warranty. Dont remember the mileage limit.

yup the 6 cd changer is gone *darn* but the sxi now has leather seats + dual airbags.

the earlier sxi had a single drivers airbag and fabric seats. so the trade off is fair i suppose!!! just booked a thunder colour sxi as an anniversary present to the parents - hence very closely monitored loads of pieces of paper!!!

@bite the bullet
The SXi always had leather seats. The Nex SXi adds a wooden console and a passenger side Airbag.

That's correct. I guess they removed the leather seats when they introduced the driver's airbag a few months ago.

I guess ABS and Drivers side airbag were added in place of the alloys.
