There shouldn't be a problem. I haven't heard of anyone's warranty becoming void due to a tyre oversize.
In any case, unless it's a monster of an oversize (which is not the case with you) 8 out of 10 workshops won't even notice it. And since the showroom people have said there isn't a problem, you have nothing to worry about
Go for it. The 1.6 deserves better footwear! And let us know what tyre you finally opt for.

here are some pricing guys .....

Michelin PP 4100/- (not PP2)
XM1+ 4050/-

Yokohama ES100 3510

yoko S-drive not available ATM ..... i saw the thread patterns in yoko ES100 and michelin PP and altho both are same size 195/60 14 but ES100 contact patch is less than PP

so i am thinking about getting the ES100
how both tyres compared in noise ??

also for old tyres he said 1900 for goodyear/ 2050 for MRF / Bridgestone 2200 ..... 1.6 comes mostly with goodyear

You won't get S drives in 195/60-14
PP will have less road noise in comparison to ES100.

thanks bro for detailed reply

the prices are for 195/60 14 .... he was quoting 3800 for XM1 and 4050 XM1+ .... so i think i can bargain a little more in michelins, wat bout ES100 price ? is it ok ?

how is performance of ES100 compared to PP ? i think rolling resistance of ES100 will be less than PP

1. I think ES100 should be around 3300.
2. PP is better than ES100 if u consider all the parameters. Thats my personal experience.

Difference in rolling resistance of PP & ES100 in the same size would be negligible at best. I don't think that should be an issue in your decision making process especially since we can't quantify the difference.

185/65/R14 would be the right size.
