Cheap used cars with dual airbags in India

I am wondering if we can think of anything below the 2-lakh rupee mark

Title says it all, but I am wondering if we can think of anything below the 2-lakh rupee mark that doesn't have a ton of mileage on it (<100K km).

A few options I can think of:

  • Older Punto
  • Older Figo / Fiesta
  • Older Civic
  • Tata Vista

I am not sure if older Swifts and Ritzs came out with dual airbags. Hyundai?

I figure this would be useful for a first-time / budget-conscious buyer who also wants to pay attention to safety.

Here's what Tojo_GotBhp had to say on the matter:

Other options I can think of are:

1. 1st Gen Hyundai i20- Top class quality, all wheel disc brakes, 5-star rated (if I'm not wrong, back then the i20 available in India and the one exported were identical), 6 airbags, ABS, EBD.
Ofcourse, the 6 airbags would be available only on Asta (O) trims, but the Asta trim did get dual airbags.

2. Maruti Ritz and Swift- Both the cars in their ZXI trim get dual airbags along with ABS.

3. Nissan Micra- Driver airbags are standard across the range with dual airbags available in higher trims.

4. 2nd Gen Honda Jazz- Dual airbags, ABS + EBD standard across the range.

P.S: The Nissan Micra misses out on ABS in its lower trims even when it gets driver airbag. I personally feel that ABS are of more importance than airbags.
