Yesterday the dealer called me and told me that Red is getting delayed and opted for Sunlight Copper. If I don't accept it is going to take 1 more month. So I have taken the copper color which will be delivered by next week.

You need to do pumping action to raise it and in the reverse direction to lower it. It is not electrically adjustable.

Does this feature exist in Swift VXI? Or is this specific to SX4?

Since its based on Swift, I expect Swift must have it, can any Swift owners confirm?

Generally attention to detail and maruti don't quite go hand in hand,just loved the four hooks kind of thing maruti have given under the sx4 so that when you put your car cover the car cover does not fly off.

You need to do pumping action ..

Oh I missed to note this (lazy to bend to look at them), I still use clips provided part of the covers.

Default Rear Arm Rest

Has ZXi got a Cup Holder on the Rear Arm Rest? If not, can that be added as an accessory... please advice.

For 10 or 15 kmph up to 50 or 60 kmph, I guess EPS works at its full capability, I am not sure of the exact value for these speed limits for this zone.

For > 50 or 60 kmph, I too think that EPS is disabled, One of my friends who is in servicing field also told me that EPS will be disabled at higher speeds, but he didn't tell me the limit.

So, in my review, I referred 1st & 2nd zones.
Satya, I am feeling the same. I can feel that heavyness while takin turns at lesser speeds. After reading your review i realise that my old zen's power steering is much smoother than the sx4. I think its due to heavy tyres, but not sure. P.S. I own black sx4 zxi and driven around 2000 KM

Nops. Adding it will be painful since they have to cut it - if I am not wrong.

You can still use bottle holder kept behind gear box, may not be comfortable though.

Swift VXI has the seat height adjustment. But I don't know why this feature is not in SX4 VXI

I don't think the steering is heavy because of the tyres, infact Swift also has the same problem. Maruti should fix the steering and gearbox problem.
