The Swift Zxi to start with. Not sure about the i10.

Guess all the 10L plus cars have the same.

Cedia has it. I think most C segment Sedans would have it along with premium hatches as well.

Has tilt steering been a standard on the Zxi from the time it was introduced ? Or is it a newly added feature like the stereo, steering mounted controls etc ? Because I do not remember seeing it in my Dad's 2007 Zxi.

Both versions of the Baleno had tilt steering.

Tata Safari has it, all models.

How many if you think is useful and have used it? I have used it just once.

Accent has it.
although I havent used it ever since one perfect position is comfortable for me always.
its a useful feature if a car is to be driven more than one person.

I remember this feature came first on a Tata Sierra.
