The Maruti Swift has long been a fan favourite among Indian auto-enthusiasts. We have got a render here of what you can do with a Swift if you go all-out, Ken Block style.
The Maruti Swift has been in the Indian market for one and a half decades now and has been a beloved vehicle for automotive enthusiasts. Instead of the popular tallboys like the Maruti Wagon R and the Hyundai Santro that were all the rage back then, the Swift brought in a new design and stance, which coupled with its prodigious handling, set a benchmark that was hard to beat for years. Currently, in its third generation, the Swift has also been a consistent top seller in its segment over the years, still managing to sell twice the numbers of its direct rivals.
Now in markets like the UK, you can happily buy a Swift Sport which gets a 127 PS 1.4-litre turbo-petrol and stiffer suspension which makes it a peppy and fun thing to drive. In India, you cannot buy it because, um, Maruti won’t sell you one, fuel efficiency and all. Even though, there are a few aftermarket modifiers and tuners who can get you close, it can get eye-wateringly expensive. But with the magic of photoshop, we have got you covered with this mean gymkhana-ready tuned Swift.
This render has been done by Zephyr Designz, and I think we can all agree that this Suzuki Swift needs to be put in production ASAP. It looks aggressive and means, something that you wouldn’t want to mess with. The Franken-Swift gets a really fetching green and black paint job and gets a body kit which adds a low front splitter and a huge rear spoiler as well. The ride has been slammed to the ground which paired with the dished black alloys wrapped in Toyo Tyres, gives it the perfect stance. Since it is only a render, changes are only visual, so nothing changes internally though a twin-turbo V6 should be perfect for a build like this.
The Maruti Swift is powered by a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated 4-pot which churns out 82Ps/113Nm of max power and torque figures in civilian guise and can be paired with a manual or AMT transmission. Prices start from Rs 5.19 lakh for the base LXI trim, going up to Rs 8.02 lakh for the top tier ZXI AGS. All prices are ex-showroom India respectively.
