I remember seeing a tilt steering in a Mitusubishi Lancer wayback in 1998 in an auto expo.

Its of use whenever you change your sitting position, specially seat hight. I normally drive with lowest seat hight in Altis, once there was a small off road patch to reach a resort and for that purpose I changed seat hight to highest, that time I changed tilt. It was usefull.

Another use is when more than one person drive same car, then it is often used.

All Aveo sedan models have the tilt steering. I guess its just a common feature in all cars being launched.Now we should start talking about the tilt and telescopic steering et al the i20.

tilt steering is very useful and position can be set depending on driver's height. for example our driver is just 5'2" and sets tilt steering to lowest position. whereas i'm over 6' and find highest position comfortable.

anyways wouldn't it be easy to list out cars that don't have tilt steering. cos i believe almost all cars above vista or swift offer this feature (atleast as a option). ofcourse few exceptions may exist like bolero or sumo.

The Fabia has the steering wheel going up-down and forward-backward, the seats also go up-down and forward-backward
