The 2nd generation Swift in Pakistan has gone past its prime long ago. It was already introduced quite late in Pakistan and since then has remained almost entirely unchanged. For how many more years this model of Swift will be sold in Pakistan is unknown, however with an ever-increasing price tag which has now breached PKR 2.05 million mark, the sales doesn’t seem to be improving anywhere in future.
