Default Thanks

Thanks Ram_,

So this means that the Swift Dzire will not benifit from the tax concessions. Sad.

I hope that Maruti tries to get the car shorter by 135mm by redesigning the rear bumper.

i think 135mm is lots as compared to fusion which was over by8mm, it took ford quite some time to chop off those 8mm IIRC. so it ll take a major redesign of the bumpers if they want to reduce 135mm.IMHO

Once this is released and we can have a good look at it.

Hell lets make is a Most Ugly Car on indian roads poll.

Yes iron wolf,it looks odd for a sedan shape.But it will sure win the heart like the swift.dzire has a more sharp take it or leave it appeal,but the boot is a welcome which many wanted.The feeling i got was regarding the odd front rather than the back of the dzire.The front does not compliment a sedan look,lol.Its subjective though.

I am inclined to agree with you on that one. I guess this feeling stems from the fact that one is used to the front looks of the Swift which is a hatch.

The scenario is similar to the Indica vis-a-vis the Indigo where one cant be too sure from a distance if its an Indica or an Indigo unless he pops over to the rear of the car.

.


from the looks of this, it seems like the sx4 is going suffer some sales losses, if the ex-showroom price in mumbai itself is close to 5.5lacs for vxi which is petrol, then i think i can add another 10k for the ex-showroom hyderabad, and then the on road price is sure going to be around 6.3L for this and what will be the diesel's price?

and imo they are not going to release the sedan diesel are they? if they do then it will surely kill the sx4! just my opinion what do you say guys?

I think that we need to wait n watch. Above link says that the LXi will be priced at 5.4 lakhs ex showroom, whereas ET reports the diesel price tag to be around 5.4 lakhs ex showroom. Looks like everyone are just predicting.

Am not sure why Maruti should try to compete with Indigo in diesel category by initiating a price war when the DDiS engine supply is way below the demand in its swift. Is there any plan for Maruti to increase the production of diesel engines in the near future ?

Default Wanted to make it more affordable.

I mentioned that the length would be cut by 135mm because I wanted the car to more affordable so that it can easily and more comfortably beat the Indigo CS.

Yes I admit that it was greed on my part as far as price is concerned, but even if that does not happen, we all will be watching a great car at a great price. At least that is the picture right now.

It is not at all possible for them to shave off the excess from either bumpers.The overhang is too small and if something has to be done then there should be no bumpers at all.So lets wait for the budget and if the limit is increased by 200 mm then the scenario is changed.
