    Default Swift Hype absent from Isb???

    I havn't been following other swift threads, so this may have been noted by other members.

    It seems that Isb people don't wanna feel young that much as new swift is virtually absent from isb roads. (or is it only me who saw the first swift in isb just today???).

    Atleast here at Pakwheels, almost everyone seemed enthusiastic about the new swift with threads emerging months before its launch.

    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    ive witnesed more Swifts then Honda Citys. since its 2009 Launch.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    i ahev only seen 2 on the roads since the day of the launch,.. one was the one at the PW meet, the other was red/burgundy and it said "test car" on the back of it (and it looked like someone really was giving it a test drive).

    doesn't seem like much of a hit here as the idea of a 10 lack suzuki doesn't appeal to many people in this image concious city,.. even though after the vitara XL7 and baleno GTi, this is the best suzuki offered in PK in all of the brands history.

    1 white registered in 1 IDN number..i think its not a permanent number..and another from chaudary motors in red colour

    these are few i have seen so far...parked around....few more on roads from a distance which may be the same i spotted before


    still swift is not out on roads as quickas we thought it will be...

    I'm afraid its the opposite here. It may be true in Karachi, but here in isb, i've seen many many Honda City. (Red color seems to be favourite for this Honda, with black being on 2nd and no notable third).

    I don't know about the price difference, but it doesn't seem logical to prefer a hatchback over a lovely sedan at nearly the same price.

    nearly the same price
    Sir g, its a strait 2.29 lacks differnce. wen cultus vxl was around 650-675 Suzuki Baleno costed 7.29-7.49, Honda City around 7.95, Toyota Corola Xli around 8.20-8.50. so i dun think theres a huge price differnce again, the price have rose in the similar manner.

    btw saw 3 more Today. 2 white ones and a Silver one

    ^ maybe they are more common in Khi. You hardly see any swifts in Isb-rwp.

    Just a comparison of sales for Jan 2010:- (PAMA figures)

    1. Toyota Corolla 4,207
    2. Suzuki Mehran 1,666
    3. Honda City 952
    4. Suzuki Cultus 950
    5. Suzuki Bolan 886
    6. Suzuki Alto 860
    7. Cuore 643
    8. Civic 627
    9. Swift 502
    10. Liana 88

    Sales figures show Pakistanis are crazy over corolla :p. Swift Sales at 502 for launch month are somewhat low but then again the premium issue and booking block probably discouraged a lot of potential buyers.
