Seems like Autocar has flicked the scoop picture of Amitverma and now they have an article on New Swift Sedan on their new issue(January issue).They have the scoop photo and also a photoshopped image of the side profile of the sedan.

Same if the case with overdrive...just that they saw the pic and just created an artist's impression. see the pic to believe it...I hate when such things happen. They could have atleast given the credit to Amit or mentioned the source. Disgusting.

IMHO, it doesnt look that bad. Rather a masculine rear i would say.

Well, if the NHC, Santro, Estilo, Indica/Indigo, Spark etc can sell by the truckloads, why not this one also, however ugly it may look ?

IMO it's not really all that ugly, has some sort of a charm to it, however weird the concept may seem
It will sell

The add-on boot is not that bad actually. It will sell no doubt. Remember, they have to price it well below the SX4 if they decide to launch it.

Bigger rear glass is the nice in Swift Sedan. In normal swift rear glass so small you harly can see anything while reverse.
Rear passanger glases are also bigger in size and seems like tyre size is similler to SX4
