Reasons were quite simple
I need space, ride quality and good GC
Why base model?-- cost. Road tax is prohibitive in Karnataka. I think it is same in AP also. Pleasure model costs on road 14.6-14.75 after discounts. Whereas Pule Lx costs 11.4-11.5, It further gives one the option of having a touch screen BT ICE, which is not possible in Pleasure( One can change the stock audio, but it would like paying twice for audio)
So many people have been using Safari, Innova and scorpio without ABS
& rear discs for long.
So it should be Ok for Pure LX without ABS
as it has 4 discs.
Comparison wise Pure LX is almost on par with mid variant of Innova.
Cost: 3 lakhs less
Mileage: better than innova; less running cost
service interval: 5K Km vs 15k KM; less maintenance on regular services
GC : 170 mm Vs 200mm
Rear Brakes: Drum Vs discs
