When the Indian markets were obsessed with the Maruti Suzuki 800 as their go-to hatchback, a lot of manufacturers started eyeing this market segment and prepared to act on it. Maruti itself launched the WagonR and Alto, amongst the fierce competition with Hyundai Santro. However, when the Maruti Suzuki Swift entered the market, it changed the entire luxury hatchback game back then. When it was launched back in 2005, the design was pathbreaking and was extremely fun to drive accompanied by the prime USPs of Maruti which is affordability and great mileage. The third generation continues the legacy and is still winning hearts all over. Swift remains one of the most modified cars in the Indian subcontinent. Here are five such modified Maruti Suzuki Swifts that will blow your mind.
Before you read further, I’d just like to clarify that the names stated here are something that’s been decided by me, and their respective owners could call their beloved by another name. Don’t be fooled by the picture depicting the car to be all black. The Dark Samurai was painted in a blue-violet paint shade that adds a whole other level of character and depth to the car. The body of the car gets a body kit and the headlamps and fog lights are new aftermarket pieces. Even though all we can think of when we look at the car are the gorgeous alloys, the custom LED DRLs and the red detailing on the grille is the cherry on the cake.

Pardon the Mercedes reference here, but we couldn’t hold back from noticing the beautiful silver paint job reminding us of the standard silver shade in Mercedes. This shade of silver would make it stand out amongst a lot of silver cars on the road. The Swift Sport body kit fits in perfectly to give the impression of a classy car coupled with a hint of macho. The new LED DRLs and the aftermarket projector headlamps add to the refreshing new look. So simple and yet one of a kind, that’s the silver arrow for you.
Yes, you read that right. Swift is known for its ground clearance, hence it’s difficult to imagine a swift going this low. It makes you look at it as a completely different car. However, this modification is one of the best full aesthetic modification jobs ever seen on the third generation of the Swift. This one also gets a Swift Sport kit on its body, however, the owner made sure that he/she added small personal touches to make it a differentiator. The hollow black grille and the white lamp eye-shadows give it an extremely aggressive look. The white paint job eases the entire look and adds a touch of nobleness. The owner further goes on to add those amazing rims and a roof-mounted rear spoiler.
The one that stands out for its natural glamour and beauty. Let’s start by addressing the red paint job. This is a different shade of red than offered as a standard offering from Maruti Suzuki and is much glossier. The front lip splitter and side skirts along with the rear diffuser in black make it a deadly combination with the red. This one also gets a body kit, which makes it look a bit sporty. The highlight remains the aftermarket front headlamps with matrix indicators and LED DRLs with the chrome-tipped nose. Hands down, the Glamstar is a head-turner.
This one is another Swift in all red. However, this one is not wrapped in glossy red. It comes with a lower-body sports kit which also includes the front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser. The highlight here remains the quad exhaust tips along with a big spoiler at the rear. The alloys on the Red Hot are by far the best alloys we’ve seen in any of the modified Maruti Suzuki Swifts. The unique factor is the Porsche style LED units and the blacked-out headlamps. The owner has also taken the liberty to add a sunroof, making the car all the more desirable.
