As per the Oct issue of AutoCar, Getz CRDI is being launched by end of 2006 with price ranging from 5-7 lakhs whereas Swift D early 2007 but with a price tag of 6.4 lakh !!

thats does not make sense for Swift D or its a printing mistake as Swift Sedan has been tagged 5-6 Lakhs ( late 2007 launch ).

Wise manufactures would definitely iron out these things in short while and then time would be ripe to go for one.

My opinion!
remember accent crdi when it was launched??? nobody cared to even notice

What would be the targetted user segment of the Swift D ? For a supermini diesel that would ostensibly cost close to/around Rs 7 lakhs OTR, would it really find a niche as the petrol variants have? I would probably reckon people opting for the Chevy Aveo,Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Verna petrol over a Swift/Getz diesel given the option.
