No, our car is VXi, but came with 165/80 R13 Bridgestone S322 tyres with alloys. The spare is also an alloy. The auto antenna was not aftermarket fitment and was standard.

IMO, the 185 section tyres and ACC ( IIRC ) were added after 2005 which was the last update Baleno had before discontinuation. That update also had 14 inch wheels and not 13 inch.

if we go by this VDS 2010 then Safari and Sumo are showing there, cant see scorpio & Bolero

I am just trying to prove that "desi attitude" is a myth in car manufacturing especially because TML is a multinational company and they cannot afford to loose any business due to "desi attitude". However it could be true that their vendors are not doing things right in the name of sticking to budget or whatever. My biggest gripe is that M&M also came out with un-refined bolero and scorpio but gradually improved the quality and now both are segment leaders.

I guess somewhere TML started focusing more on passenger cars like Indica, Manza, Nano, ARIA, etc. and did not have time for SUMO and Safari. But hopefully they can spare time now with upcoming safari refresh and hopefully a mark-3 for grande
