Something I noticed from the list. If Maruthi has it, everybody else seems to be following. But for the things introduced by others there does not seem to be much interest. True market leader - Maruthi.

Tata indica had variable intermittent speeds. I.e you could set the interval of the intermittent viper.

Yeah people used to call Fabia and I20 Ridiculoualy high priced but thanks to the Advent of Jazz... People now feel i20 and Fabia are "rightly" priced

Again it was the M800.
I know a physically challenged gentleman who had a 'specially made' Maruti 800, much before the Zen was even launched.
