This is hilarious. lol How can he refuse to sell you a car!? If you have decided on the S, you should get it irrespective of what the moronic dealer tells you. He must have a vested reason for pushing you towards a non-S car. Maybe he wants to give you some car lying in his yard for too long etc. The S is usually made on-demand, so you are assured of a brand new car.

Default S or SXi

@ruchirtnt
Your money, your call, not Dealer's. Both S and Sxi are great. Keep dealer opinion aside and decide!

If you want to be always YOUNG at heart, slightly different from the crowd and like to show off once a while, S is for you. If you are above 30, has less show off mind, on a regular family use purpose and value the rear folding seat, rear centre arm rest, rear adjustable head rests, softer suspension etc. (none of them are in S version), SXI or ZXI (only airbag is missing now) is for you.

Shaju - minor correction
The airbag is not there only on ZXi and Exi variants
(surprise no report on EXi so far - seems no one buying this variant?)

SXi has got airbags

I meant only airbag is missing in the ZXI now. EXI is anyway the basic variant, there are too many things missing from other variants, so cant compare.

Mileage difference is just marginal as the 1.6 engine is same in every variant.

Mileage in the S will be lesser as you will tend to rev it harder. The S runs a different ECU map which results in better power delivery but at the cost of FE. I haven't done a proper calculation yet but I think I am getting around 10 in mine in city driving with 100% AC on.

@frankmehta

and have you seen the member list updated there?
You started the initial work which I carried away alongwith thebeastfiest and now we have 62 names in the list (I think couple of more came after that and did not update in the list).
So when you were busy with your work, so much happened here among fiestans !

Kindly dont compare me with GTO, one of the founder member of this forum (if I am correct)? So long he is here and doing so much contribution to this forum and all related to
the automobile industry.
