Modified Maruti Swift looks dope in Swift Sport's attire and black paint scheme. It gets some performance mods as well. Read about them here.
Maruti Swift is quite fancied by the Indian automotive enthusiasts. The tuner friendly nature of the car and its engine are the reason for the same. Swift is a global product, which is sold across a lot of international markets by the Japanese carmaker. Hence it is easy to source parts for the tuning purposes. Also, in some international markets, a sportier Swift Sport is sold, which Indian enthusiasts are kept away from. However, here's a Maruti Swift, which now dons a black paint scheme and the same attire as the Swift Sport. This very Swift belongs to Mr. Niyaz, who hails from Kerala.
This Swift has been painted in a black shade, which makes it the only 3rd-gen model in existence in the country with black colour. Talking of other modifications, it gets a Swift Sport body kit. The kit includes – front bumper, radiator grille, front bumper lip, side skirts, rear bumper with diffuser and twin exhaust port, and a massive spoiler. Also, the stock headlamps and tail lamps are now replaced with aftermarket units. It now sits on a set of 17-inch 7.5J Lenso Jager Dyna rims, which are draped in 205/45-R17 Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres.
Powering this Swift is the 1.2L K-series motor. The 4-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine now uses a BMC cold air-intake system along with a custom exhaust system. In its stock iteration, this motor puts outs 83 PS of peak power and 113 Nm of max torque, but if it has gained any extra horses here that's not known. The transmission duties are performed by a 5-speed gearbox. However, it gets lowered ride height with Cobra lowering spring to aid it with tighter handling and improved dynamics.
Maruti Swift is currently sold with a petrol engine only, but with 2 transmission options – 5-speed MT and 5-speed AMT. With 7 variants on offer, price of Maruti Swift start at Rs. 5.19 lakh for the base-spec LXI trim and goes up to Rs 8.02 lakh for the top-spec ZXI+ AMT trim. It rivals the likes of Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and Ford Figo.
