Maruti Suzuki Swift, one of the most popular hatchbacks from the manufacturer which has been around for a while and Maruti has made every effort to make sure that it doesn’t feel outdated. That is one of the reason why Swift is still selling in good numbers in the market. Another reason is that it was one of those hatchbacks that started the trend of modifying cars in the country. It is a modifications friendly car and many examples of the same can be seen around the country. Even we have done many articles in the past showing some tastefully modified Swifts. Here we have one such modified latest generation Swift which is modified by KitUp Automotive.
There is no denying the fact that KitUp Automotive has done a great job on this Grey swift. The swift gets a updated bumper, both at front and the rear. The bumper is now similar to the one we have seen on Suzuki Swift Sport which unfortunately never came to India. The grille has got bigger and adds up to the aggressive look of the Swift.
On the side, Swift gets black carbon fibre finish on the A and B pillars and the aftermarket dual tone alloy wheels enhance sportiness of the Swift. Other than this no other changes are made to the Swift. The roof has been completely blacked out and it it also gets a sunroof. Coming to the rear, main upgrade is the bumper. It is again inspired by the Swift sport with two faux exhaust pipes. Other major change at the rear is the LED strip installed under the spoiler on both sides.
The carbon fibre theme is carried inside as well. The dash board, steering wheel and floor of the Swift get the same carbon fibre finish. The seats have also been upgraded. The whole cabin now gets a black theme. This goes well with the overall sporty exterior of the car.The new Swift 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 1.3L diesel engine will be discontinued after April 1 when BS6 norms kick in. So, if you want the Swift in diesel, the best time to buy one is now.
