Given the pricing of this car, I have no doubt about its commercial success. It will eat into Swift's sales the most because it beats the Swift in every department and is only marginally costlier than the Swift.
This car has a good GC. however, it is not very tall. Along with that is pretty wide. This coupled with reduced weight that the car is fun to drive. It is peppier than the swift and handles rough roads and corners really well. It is a driver's car and most people would love it.
The engine is the same as in the Swift. However, improved gearbox, reduced weight of the car and better aerodynamics, make this even peppier to drive than the Swift. On top of it, the mileage is at least 10% than swift in both petrol and diesel variants.
This car has by far the most features in any comparable segment. Add to it the premium looking dashboard theme, one of the best odometer display around, best in class space, most comfortable seats, entertainment system (in the top and mid variants) and there is no doubt it is the class leader in the premium hatchback segment.
This car improves upon the Swift in every department. But what stands out the most is the styling of the car. It truly is a great looking car and unlike Swift, it won't have a polarizing effect on people. Most people will love the looks
Areas of improvement: I can't think of anything in particular but a more powerful Diesel engine would have made it the undisputed leader of this segment.
