Maruti Swift and Dzire production outage trigger demand for rival cars
When the cat's away, the mice will play. This is what the situation of the hatchback and sedan segment currently. The Maruti Swift hatchback and Maruti Swift Dzire sedan is out of production and so the other cars in respective segments see a considerable rise in sales. A major chunk of Swift or Swift Dzire car buyers have to forcibly go for a second choice and there are many choices available already and there are so many to come. Notably, following the Manesar violence and consequent close down, the production of the Swift and the Dzire sedan has stopped completely and there are no units left with the dealers as well. However, Maruti is continuing with the bookings as it hopes to bring the production back to normal soon.

There are amply attractive offering in both these segments that could match or say surpass the two Maruti cars in their respective segment in terms of their looks, features and safety.
