Now Punto and Swift have equal voting. Jazz is leading segment
But what about sales figures
Swift - 11000
Punto - 700
Jazz - 600
About sales figures --well, don't look at it if you are sure what u want. Its like choosing a career based on individual interest rather than one with more jobs in the market. I'm sure half of the Swift buyers don't know what they want, they buy it because it is Swift, largest selling car in the segment.
Swift is well designed (at least exteriors) and stable engine and lags only in build quality issue which is non-issue with typical Indian conditions and people mindset of trust and A.S.S. Hence high sales figures.
Punto is totally dented by fear of A.S.S. of Tata and poor marketing.
Jazz didn't kick-off because it wasn't VFM
as Indian buyer typically look for.
Jazz will still not kick-off despite huge price cut due to production issues.
So, people will still queuing up Maruti showrooms for Swift despite Punto being better diesal car and Jazz being much better petrol car.
