A beloved car among Indian automotive enthusiasts and the general masses alike, here's a Maruti Swift which looks totally like the Suzuki Swift Sport
The Maruti Swift is something of a favourite among Indian automotive enthusiasts. The car already boasts really good handling right from the factory, and the enthusiasts love that. Also, if you want to tune your Swift up few notches, the nature of it being a global product makes it really easy to source aftermarket parts. In the UK, you get the sportier Suzuki Swift Sport, which is adored by its owners but sadly this version has never made an appearance in India, fuel efficiency figures, and all that. Today we have got a tuned Maruti Swift, which is owned by Bibin Vijayan.
The Maruti Swift here is a VXI trim, and it retains the stock red shade. But aside from that, it gets a lot of changes, starting with the projector headlamps from the ZXI+ trim, round fog lamps, and a Swift Sport body kit which gets you the front bumper, radiator grille, front bumper lip, side skirts, a rear bumper that gets a diffuser and twin exhausts, and the massive spoiler from the aforementioned Sport trim sold internationally.
It gets a new set of 17-inch 6-spoke Lenzo alloy wheels which are wearing wider 215 section tyres. This particular Maruti Swift hasn’t gone through any engine tuning and is currently the 1.2-litre K- series 4-pot petrol is in stock guise. This motor churns out peak power and torque figures of 83PS/113Nm respectively and is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
The Maruti Swift is only available with a petrol engine currently, but you do get the option of a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT. Prices start from Rs 5.19 lakh for the base LXI variant and goes up to Rs 8.02 lakh for the ZXI+ AMT. It rivals the likes of the Ford Figo and the Grand i10 Nios.
