The all-new, 3rd generation Suzuki Swift hatchback has hit the modification circuit in a big way. Body kit makers in Japan and Thailand have already begun building a range of custom kits for the Swift, and the latest is the ZERCON body kit from Caroline Corporation of Thailand.
The body kit offers a range of additions to the front, rear and sides of the 2018 Suzuki Swift, which is known as the Maruti Swift in India. The body kit consists of black add-ons along with red highlights on the front and rear bumpers, black cladding for the wheel arches, side skirts, LED pilot lamps for the front bumper, twin exhaust tips for the rear bumper, a red wrap for the wing mirrors and a blacked out roof.
The 2018 Suzuki Swift done up with the ZERCON body kit is white in colour. The red contrast paint scheme of the body kit makes the modifications stand out. The car looks low slung and sporty thanks to the body kit. Expect such kits to soon make their way into India, where the Swift is one of the most popular car picked out for modifications.
The all-new Swift is Maruti Suzuki’s biggest hit in 2018. Launched in February this year, at the 2018 Auto Expo, the Swift has managed to sell over 1 lakh units in less than five months of launch, making it one of India’s fastest selling cars.
The Swift sold in India starts from under Rs. 4.99 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi. The car is offered with two engine options, a 1.2-litre K-Series petrol motor which puts out 82 Bhp and 113 Nm and a 1.3-litre Fiat Multijet turbocharged diesel motor that generates 74 Bhp and 190 Nm.
Five-speed manual and AMT options are offered on both the petrol and diesel variants. All variants of the Swift gets twin airbags and ABS as standard features. The new Swift gets a longer wheelbase but shorter overall length. Leg room and boot space have increased in the new model, which is a lot lighter than the outgoing version thanks to the use of the HEARTECT light weight platform.
