Every day hundreds of new Maruti Swift hatchbacks are sold in India. In fact, the Swift is becoming a common sight already, and it’s novelty is wearing off. People wanting to make their Swifts more distinctive is resulting in the first wave of modifications. Here’s one such modified new Swift from SS Designs, which looks quite loud.
The modifier has paired the red Swift with white accents for a sporty appearance. The grille and bumper get contrast white inserts, while the head lamps wear red tints. The car also gets white wraps on the wing mirrors, roof rails, B-Pillar and many other elements. The insides of the car get black and red art leather finish. Overall, the car has a sporty theme that looks quite overdone in many places. The best styling bit has to be the alloy wheels, which nicely fill up the Swift’s wheel wells.
This Swift is based on the petrol MT version, which means that it gets the 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine with 83 Bhp-113 Nm. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard with this engine, which is also available with a 5-speed AMT option. The Swift sold in India also comes with a diesel engine – the tried and tested 1.3-litre Fiat Multijet turbocharged unit with 74 Bhp of peak power and 190 Nm of peak torque. Like the petrol motor, the diesel Swift gets both 5-speed manual and AMT options.
The Swift has already begun clocking sales of 20,000+ units each month, making it one of India’s best selling hatchbacks from get-go. The car is in its third generation in India, and the initial few months of sales suggests that the new Swift will be even an bigger success than its predecessor. The new Swift is built on the HEARTECT platform and is lighter than the outgoing model. It also gets airbags and ABS as standard across all variants. A sportier version called the Swift Sport is also being planned for the Indian market.
