Ever wondered what the Maruti Swift would look like as a Police vehicle? If you have, then this particular rendering would be of interest to you.
Ever since it entered the Indian market in 2005, the Maruti Swift has consistently been one of the best-selling vehicles. In fact, it was the highest-selling vehicle overall in India in 2020. Maruti’s hatchback probably provides the best ride and handling combination under Rs 20 lakh in India. The Swift comes with reliable and efficient engines, attractive pricing, and feature-loaded trim levels that make it the go-to-hatchback for a lot of Indian buyers. It has also become a favourite within the aftermarket modifying community, with parts and accessories easily available. Today we came across this particular Swift render which re-imagines the hatchback as a Police vehicle.
With the rear three-quarters visible in this rendering, we can see that this Maruti Swift comes with lowered suspension, making the hatchback sit much closer to the ground. The stock wheels have also been replaced with a set of multi-spoke grey alloys wrapped in low profile tyres. However, the most eye-catching part of this Swift render is the new rear bumper which exposes the new custom exhaust system with dual exhaust outlets. Other changes to the rendering include a custom grey and white paint job, a roof-mounted spoiler, and a Police siren. Overall, this rendering of the Swift is pretty cool, even though it is not much of a cop car.
Maruti just gave the Swift a mid-life refresh a few months ago. The hatchback gets a new front grille with a silver finish on the grille mesh along with a chrome strip on the centre. There are 3 new dual-tone colours, though other than that exterior changes are negligible with the new Swift retaining most of the elements from the pre-facelift model. Over to the interior, the updated Swift gets new features like a bigger 4.2-inch TFT MID display between the analogue dials, a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with SmartPlay Studio which offers better integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, key synchronised auto foldable ORVMs, and cruise control.
The 2021 Maruti Swift gets a new engine, the 1.2-litre four-pot K-Series Dual-Jet engine which also does duty on the Baleno. It makes peak power and torque figures of 90 PS and 113 Nm, respectively. The engine also comes with an idle start-stop function and can be mated to a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT. Prices for the new Swift range from Rs 5.73 lakh for the base LXI trim, going up to Rs 8.41 lakh for ZXI+ AMT flagship trim. Do note all prices are ex-showroom.
