Default Will Gen2 Swift give major boost to sales?

Swift has been a phenomenon in India ! It has always bought great numbers for MSIL . But it's aging , and we all know , the Gen2 is coming soon. We all had a look at it , it looks similar . An untrained eye will easily pass it for current Swift . Yes , it looks fresh , but nothing different ! Secondly, it will have the same engine options . Interior space is nothing to differentiate (slightly spacious) . Quality levels, slightly up.
My question is , will the new Swift take the game forward ? It will easily do 10-12 K , as it's an established brand ! But can it go forward and do 16-19 K?
Your opinion

In my opinion, even the current swift would do 15K if only maruti could produce so many. Remember that a maruti product is the only option in a large part of our country because of the lack of reliable A.S.S for other manufacturers in that area.

Production Capacity is the only constraint.

I would say it will sell on the present selling range. The looks are almost similar so i don't think existing swift customers will do a upgrade to this.

New Swift will be hit for sure. It has better space, interiors & improved quality. It will surely make other cars like I20, Jazz, Figo work hard for there sales. Swift is already a well know product & loved by many. So its more improved now ... It will get success like Alto K10, New Wagon R & Eeco. Maruti has definitely found the way to success with there existing cars by giving them some nice treatment what market is looking for.

Best of Luck to new Swift in advance
