Great set of pictures, thanks:)
At least Altis should've had Immobilizer.
Why they don't need to deliver Immobilizer in XLi and GLi variants- It will be bought by Farmers, villagers, rent a car walas and what not.
They just need 4 wheels, engine, AC and a big *** trunk to install CNG in.
Then comes the resale part- It has to be sold asap and at a good price.
Now- We i.e the minority or should I rather say the 0.1%, want Immobilizer etc.
Ask a Villager regarding Immobilizer and that it takes ages for a thief to steal your car;
' O bhai, Ay Pakistan we, chor ne gaddi leni howe, 2 mint lagday hain, Ay chor bare tazzzz honday hay '. Good luck explaining to him the functions of Immobilizer.
Then comes the Cruise Control part
' Motorway tay 3 ghante paoon rakh liya race tay fir, ki mar jana hay?'
' Koi tenshion nay, assi change driver hay '
' Zindagi Allah day hath wich hay, Air bags kuch nahin kardi '
' Bara Claim karna howe tay kaam nahin honda etc. '.
Hence, IMC is catering to the majority, not the minority.
Most of the buyers will get XLi and either GLi.
What they will do- Buy Mujra songs to play on DVD, install shitty fog lights, keep stock tires and rims, install cheapo Kenwood 718 speakers and choo choo keyless entry. Voila.
Honda is reserved for those minorities which like these kind of things, Air bags, CC, ABS etc.
I hope that I didn't offense anyone, my uncle has XLi and he loves it to bits. We always argue
