These are the most impressive affordable cars that could be easily put under work for making the best modification ever.

While car modification might lead to warranty loss, the modified car desirers community is still more and more growing in magnitude. As for some people, obviously, buying a new car then makes some works on its “bone” could not hold its original values for good but if anyone who requires a better and higher performance outcomes, the modification is the best choice. And that’s also the way that helps embellish the Indian car culture to a more intriguing stage. Look at these following five outstanding cars that could be easily modified on the cheap for the superior performance winnings.

Maruti Suzuki Alto K10

If the original Maruti Zen has made quite a successful comeback with its reinvented version in the Indian market, the Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 would also have seized a good chance. Powering the car is a simple 1.0-litre “K10B” engine that churns out 67 hp of max power and 90 Nm of torque- quite a gloomy car for its initial performance in India. Even with fully-loaded specifications, the Alto K10 will never break its limitation of a lightweight one.

What the Alto K10 needs now is a better set of 155/65 R13 tyres which will be its first ideal tweak. It will enable to enhance the rubber quality for better road-holding capacity, stability and responsiveness. A harder powertrain is the ways and means of popping up a wide range of public interest. Increasing the size of its tyre could be one method but just remember it can cause some suspension and speedometer problems.

Maruti Suzuki Swift Diesel

As we are involved in the conversations about performance gains, just forget the diesel vs petrol contest. It’not about the smoothness on driving but the decent abundance of torque and turbocharger boost released on the excitement of driving. Getting a light chassis with a responsive gearbox, the Maruti Swift diesel variant becomes a great platform for any changes and updates.

The diesel versions of the Swift are priced at around Rs 4.99 Lakh to Rs 8.85 Lakh (ex-showroom, India)

Even though the 1.3-litre Fiat-based diesel motor good for 74 hp and 190 Nm fits the Swift the best, the ECU remapping vs tuning boxes will be the appropriate low-costed tweak for more power without making any hurt. The 25hp increase may seem small to you, but it would be the tremendous difference along every road the Swift goes. Just keep in mind that its tyre needs to be updated for high-performance gains like the Alto K10 as well.

Honda Mobilio petrol

If someone is looking for an affordable car for your modified line-up, the Honda Mobilio is a peerless option. The rounded chassis combined with the aerodynamic options of 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine enables so much fun on revving. The petrol version could also be a good format for levering up the maximum performance while the i-VTEC unit is highly appreciated in modifier’s verdicts. Like the Swift diesel, the ECU tuning boxes might be very rewarding to boosting 10 to 15 per cent of power and torque figures. The flow intake and exhaust are some other excellent items for the perfect modification.

Volkswagen Polo GT TSI

The Volkswagen Polo GT TSI obtains a plethora of commendable parts under the modifiers’ eyes as well. In fact, there is a number of VW Polo GT TSI have been modified tastefully that were caught plying on the Indian roads. Enhancing the features of the hot hatch is like creating a masterpiece. Its abundantly powerful engine retrofits with the engine-tricking chips while keeping other components intact are really special.

The Polo GT TSI variant forms a good basement for the modifications

The original Polo makes for the max power of 105 PS that works smoothly to ensure the quick shifts with the 7-speed DSG gearbox. It’s out of imagination if the engine comes mated to the ECU remaps. The after-changed performance could easily grow by 20 to 25 per cent in the turbocharged engines that turns the car into a real 'beast' on every tarmac.

Fiat Linea T-Jet

The Fiat Linea T-Jet is the most expensive car of the list

A quiet runner on the Fiat’s product line-up, Fiat Linea T-Jet turns out to be the robust soldier on the modified cars battle. The Linea, in its stock form, is not the most powerful car in its segment but the Linea T-Jet is different. The car will impose an endless surprise after being updated. Housing a 1.4-litre turbo petrol burner that produces 112 hp of power and a whopping 207 Nm of peak torque, the T-Jet is expected to far exceed anyone’s expectations if added up just a little more power. Again, with ECU tuning chip, the modified-gen Linea T-Jet will certainly defeat even the driver-oriented Fiat Abarth Punto which is awaited to be a high-end blockbuster in the automotive space. So why have to wait for the Abarth Punto if you can own a better on at a smaller fraction.
