They used the brains and as a result we see this affordable convertible in India. Unfortunately, It seems they aren't much serious about their product as I told in some other thread. Also, The engine part needs some improvement. The small engine by french car maker tends to heat up easily.
my views: i love san storm when it comes to looks. although engine is a little underpowered yet it makes for fun driving experience. the car is not practical and is mostly for sunday drives, show-off, or for rich college students. although after sales service and quality are a major let down, and that is why the price tag is not justified. looking at the price tag swift is what comes to ones mind and thats where the san storm looses even more because the japs have so finely tuned the swift and raised the bar so high that even companies like fiat are struggling to compete. so although i love the san storm it wont find a place in my garage.
i would love to see a swift convertible model out in the market. that would be a killer machine.
Thats completely true. I think company should seriously think of some connvertible model of Swift, but then its price would be real high if the customisation (ie modded covertible Swift) is launched by Maruti. There are some people who deal in conversions into convertibles and they do it beautifully. I once read a review of a Swift convertible in ACI long back. It looked gorgeous.
OT- Glad to hear from you Hummer Freak after such a long time. You were quite active in TAI earlier.
i agree cost will be higher but atleast we'll get value for money car and service and reliability of maruti. and anyday normal swift with a roof also is more fun to drive than any car even twice its price.
OT- yeah akash i'm staying in hostel now where i dont have net connection. hopefully will be back in action soon.
