the sxi and s both seem to have the exact same suspension. If its just tuned to be more stiffer, then why not get the sxi and get the suspension setup like the s. Most of us might add our own styled alloys and fat rubber anyway, so the S alloys don't matter
Is that so easy to get it tuned??? One of my friend who has zxi is very much intrested on this, he too has 15 inch wheels.

Pramod, there are Minis out there with 275BHP.

As Yoda would say, size matters not.

What about cost? And the most important thing in India: Fuel Efficiency.

As it is, in India, majority believes that any car that's not Japanese is not fuel efficient. When some companies have to start off facing such mental stubbornness then it's better to be conservative.

Besides, 100bhp in India, given our roads and superb drivers, is actually a little too much!

Fully agree. There is not that much that you can use on a day-to-day basis anyway. And 100 BHP should be sufficient as far as enthusiastic highway driving goes on most Indian roads.

Folks, the Fiesta 1.6S has a slightly larger circumference with a difference in the speeds, do you think that Ford has recalibrated the speedometer to make up for the difference ?
