Of all the hatchbacks sold in our country, the Maruti Suzuki Swift is probably the most common car in the modification circuits. There are several reasons behind this, a few of which include its low weight, appropriate proportions, affordable price and a decent looking exterior design from the factory. Further, the car’s popularity means that aftermarket performance and aesthetics enhancements parts are readily available for the car at cheap prices. Of late, there has been an increase in modified 3rd generation Swifts. An addition to that list is this red devil which looks absolutely menacing to say the least.
These pictures by modified_in show the car in its best form. Its red paint job matched with that contrasting black roof creates a sort o visual drama that is pleasing to the eyes. Like several other modified 3rd gen Swifts in the country, this one also carries a Swift Sport body kit which enhances its aesthetics resulting in a racy look. For the uninitiated, the Suzuki Swift Sport is a more hardcore version of the regular Swift and is sold in several international markets. It gets a more powerful engine (140 PS output) along with a sporty body kit which makes it a true hot hatch.
The front end of the car now carries a mean look thanks to the new bumper and honeycomb grille reminiscent to the one found on the Swift Sport. A splitter has been added on the front as a part of the body while side skirts have also been added on both the side, all in black. The headlamps have also been fitted with new aftermarket units along with LED DRLs.
Moving to the rear, we see a roof spoiler in black along with aftermarket LED tail-lights. Just like the front bumper, the rear bumper has also been replaced with a sportier unit. This bumper sports twin exhaust tips along with an aesthetic diffuser and the end result is quite appealing for sure. Another highlight of this mod job are those wide wheels that are shod on to gorgeous black multi-spoke rims which complete the whole look. This one is definitely a tasteful mod then.
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. Maruti Suzuki will discontinue the diesel engine from the Swift come April 2020 due to the stringent BSVI emission norms.
