The Maruti Suzuki Swift is by far one of the most successful cars sold in India. On sale since 2005, the Swift was brought at a time when the average car buying person was looking for better options than the likes of Alto and WagonR. Now, the Maruti Suzuki Swift rivals the likes of the Hyundai Grand i10 and Ford Figo among others in the market. It is also quite a popular vehicle in the modification circuits of the country and there are several excellent modified examples of the hatchback across the country. Here is one more such gorgeously modified Swift seen in the images below, courtesy Ceramic Pro Thrissur.
Basically, this Swift has been fitted with a Swift Sport body kit which enhances its looks and makes it look quite racy. The Suzuki Swift Sport is the hardcore version of the regular Swift and is sold in several international markets. It is powered by a 1.4-litre Boosterjet turbo petrol engine that churns out a good 140 PS of power along with 230Nm of torque. It was being speculated that Suzuki will bring the Sport variant to India last year but Suzuki laid a lest to these claims by saying there are no such plans for now.
Coming back to this modified Swift, it gets smart dual-tone paint job with a white body and a blacked-out roof. The headlamps have been replaced with aftermarket units and look beautiful now. The headlamp unit gets an LED projector light along with corona ring and LED DRL to top the package off. The fog lamps have also been replaced with aftermarket units and are now housed in a Swift Sport lookalike bumper.
The lower end of the car has also been given an all-black look by using black splitters at the front and black skirts on the side. Four LEDs have been placed on the bumper lip below the fog lamps on either side to enhance the sporty look of the car. The final highlight here are those gorgeous multi-spoke alloy wheels shod on with low profile tires while the brake callipers have been replaced with red coloured units.
Talking about the Maruti Suzuki Swift, it is available with both petrol and turbocharged diesel engines. The petrol engine on the Swift is the 1.2-liter 4 cylinder K-Series unit that makes 82 Bhp of peak power and 113 Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine, on the other hand, is the 1.3 litre Fiat Multijet turbocharged unit that puts out 74 Bhp of power along with 190 Nm of torque. Both the engines get a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard while a 5 speed AMT is offered as an option. This makes Swift the only car in its class to be available with both petrol and diesel automatics, which is a reason for its impeccable sales records.
