If they load all the features to swift sedan and keep it below sx4, then sx4 will take up a beating.......any guesses what segment it will cater to.......
It should be entry C segment, competing with Ikon Flair, Accent, Indigo. Low end should start with 5 or 5.5L and upper one can't go beyond 6.5L, otherwise it clashes with Swift and/or SX4.

The reason that all variants except Accent GLE are discontinued is because, they were competing with Verna and Hyundai wanted to boost verna.

Same story, in fact, applies to all models in entry C. If Swift sedan is not priced right, it will eat away SX4 Vxi atleast, if not Swift P or D !!

Or maybe the M15.But, it'll hinder SX4's stance then.
Won't it make it costlier? Hmm, may not also.

1.The G13 can't move the 1-ton swift, and no way an extra boot.
2.It will differentiate the Swift hatch and sedan
3. Newer engine technology for newer emissions & better FE.

This seems to derive from SX4 Vxi, not ZXi. No airbags, 180mm GC, etc.

BTW, this is not Swift Sedan we are discussing in this thread. This is upcoming SX4 diesel.

Excerpt from the link.

The diesel variant will give Maruti the edge to fight the likes of the Indica and Indigo twins from Tata Motors and also take the fight to Hyundai’s diesel variants.
Which Hyundai diesel variant is going to be competitor for Swift sedan? Verna? But Verna is in SX4 range.

They are probably referring to the upcoming Getz crdi which would fall somewhere in that price range. But on all accounts the Getz should be competing with the swift hatch ddis rather than the sedan.

This time also they will price the car so that they can kill the 5-6.5 lac sedan catogory. They will price 50k more than the swifts varients. So basic version will be around 5.3lac & top end will be around 6.5lac.

Bang in between swift & SX4.
First to take a hit will be Logan & new Indigo.

No diesel for another year. First they will launch SX4 diesel & then they will think of other models.

In the entry C category, VFM will definitely make it undoubted winner, if MUL can make it, then it has cool winners in 3 segments at least. Go MUL Go!!!
