The old shape Xli was discontinued in Pakistan in 2008.
Does that mean it was a flop?
No, my dear man. All cars are replaced with newer models internationally
The Liana got replaced with the SX-4. Simple stuff.
Like every other car model in the world.
How does that indicate the car was a flop?
Coming to the swift, we are comparing the current shapes in Pakistan sir.
The "new" shape vitz came about in 2005, while the current swift shape came in 2004.
A year's gap, sir.
And if u say Vitz was launched in 1999, then Swift has been around since the 1980's!
We are comparing the shape, sir, not the the launch dates.
The older swift and vitz have no similarity.
The similarity is in 04 onwards swift, and 05 onwards vitz.
Since the swift was introduced first, and the vitz a year later, it is easy to see where the vitz got its inspiration.
Please bear in mind that I am not implying in any way that one of the two is a better car than the other.
Both cars have their own respective market segments, and they cater wonderfully to those.
I am just clarifying a few things regarding model shapes(swift vs vitz) and model changes( Liana being "banned" in 2007).
