Maruti Suzuki Swift Sport was expected to launch in India soon after the launch of the all-new Swift. However, it does not looks like that the high-performance Swift Sport will be launched in the Indian market anytime soon. While many are waiting for the Swift Sport to arrive, people have started modifying their vehicles to look like the Swift Sport. Here is one such example.
Grid7 Customs has done the modification job, and it looks immaculate and clean. The hatchback gets updates at the front and the rear making it look very similar to the Swift Sport. The Swift Sport is available in many international markets, and it looks entirely different from the regular version of the Swift. The modified version of the Swift incorporates almost all the visual changes that are carried by the Swift Sport in the international markets.
Talking about the changes, the Swift gets an aftermarket bumper with a much larger grille in front. The curves and design on the aftermarket bumper are very similar to what we see in the Swift Sport. It gets a similarly shaped large grille and identical foglamps. The foglamp housings also get LED lamps on the top that make the vehicle look very aggressive. The underbody bumper spoiler of the Swift gives it the complete Swift Sport look.
It also gets a new rear bumper that also looks identical to the original Swift Sport. It looks much more aggressive than the stock bumper and also gets two in-built exhaust mufflers. The exhaust mufflers are fake and are placed just for the visual look of the vehicle. In the original Swift Sport, the bumper insert is painted in matte black colour, but that is not the case in the modified version of the Swift. It gets the same body coloured aftermarket bumper. It looks terrific and changes the way Maruti Suzuki Swift looks on the road. It also gets aftermarket wide tyres mounted on multi-spoke light coloured wheels. It adds a lot of character to the Swift and gives it an aggressive stance. Apart from these changes, everything else remains stock in the vehicle.
The all-new Swift in India is powered by both petrol and diesel engine options. There is a 1.2-litre petrol engine that develops a maximum power of 83 Bhp and 113 Nm. The 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine in the Swift produces a maximum power of 74 Bhp and a peak torque of 190 Nm. Both the petrol and diesel engine options get AMT automatic transmission.
The Swift Sport, on the other hand, gets a much powerful engine. It gets a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces a maximum power of 140 Bhp and a peak torque of 230 Nm. It gets a 6-speed manual transmission. The Swift Sport also gets better, stiffer suspension in the international markets. However, the Indian version of the Swift Sport is expected to be powered by the 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine that powers the Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS. It churns out a maximum of 101 Bhp and a peak torque of 150 Nm.
