Maruti-Suzuki is developing a sedan based on the 2016 Swift. But while the current Swift platform has spawned a sub-four metre sedan, the car based on the 2016 Swift will be a more premium offering. This sedan is expected to slot in between the current Dzire and the Ciaz sedan. And while the current Dzire is an India-specific model, the booted version of the 2016 Swift is likely to be a global model. The car will be powered by the same set of engines as the hatchback range of 2016 Swift, with an added automatic transmission option too.
