Maruti Suzuki Swift is one of the most modified vehicles in the Indian market. Most people modify the exterior but here we have a Swift whose interior has been modified to look like MG Astor’s interior.
The video is uploaded on YouTube by Car Stylein. The video shows us a red coloured Swift whose interior has been modified extensively. It is the VXi variant of the Swift so it does miss out on quite a bit of equipment.
The interior is now finished in red and black theme. The dashboard now is finished in the same theme and gets a faux carbon fibre insert. The red accent is continued to the centre console. There is a faux carbon fibre and red surround around the gear lever.
The door pads and seats are also finished in red and black. The doors also get a carbon fibre finish insert, extra padding and white stitching. There is blue lighting and illuminated scuff plates. The steering wheel is also finished in red and black and gets white stitching. The surroundings around the instrument cluster are also finished in red colour.
The A-pillars are finished in black leather. The shop has also done two-layer damping and they have installed an after-market speaker system. There is also an after-market touchscreen infotainment system that runs on an Android-based user interface.
The host says that people often complain about the carpets getting dirty. So, they have installed their “9D flooring” which the shop complains is easier to maintain and clean. The flooring is also finished in red and black colour. A centre armrest has also been installed for the front occupants.
The shop has also given a dual-tone treatment to the exterior. They did this by wrapping the roof and the rear spoiler of the Swift in black. The outside rearview mirrors are also now finished in gloss black. Moreover, the shop has also installed electric folding rearview mirrors which open or close automatically when the car is unlocked or locked. There is also a chrome window beltline and a chrome garnish that has been installed. After-market C-pillar lights and LED fog lamps are also installed on the Swift. The headlamps are the same but now they are using LEDs instead of halogens.
The horizontal chrome slat that sits in between the grille is now finished in semi-gloss red colour. The VXi variant comes with wheel covers so the shop has installed 15-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. They are finished in black colour with red striping. The brake callipers are also finished in red colour. The tyres have also been replaced and now the hatchback runs on Bridgestone tyres.
The modifications do look nice and make the interior and exterior look sporty but they still do not feel as premium as the Astor’s interior. We have to remember that Astor sits in another segment that costs more. The prices of the modifications are not shared in the video.
