Maruti Suzuki Swift has been in the market for over 15 years. There is huge fan following for this hatchback. It was one of those hatchbacks that was loved by young drivers for its looks and drivability while family loved it for the fuel efficiency and low cost of maintenance. It was also one of those hatchbacks that popularised car modification culture in India and we have seen several modified Maruti Swift hatchbacks in different parts of the country. Here we have a video where a first generation Maruti Swift has been neatly restored and customised.
The video has been uploaded by Autorounders on their YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger shows how the condition of the car when it had arrived at the workshop for restoration work. The original colour of the hatchback was Grey and over the years, it had started to fade away. There was rust on many parts and paint on the bonnet had completely faded away.

The headlamps and tail lamps were also looking very old and had a yellow tint to them. Paint of rear fender and bumper had chipped off at places. In short, condition of the car was very bad when it arrived at the garage. Autorounders completely did the restoration work on this Swift to make it look like a brand new car.
Autorounder completely removed all the dents and sprayed a coat of primer on the car. The complete painting work on this Swift was done inside a paint booth to achieve factory finish. The colour of the hatchback was changed during the restoration process. The grey colour hatchback now gets Orange and black dual tone paint job. It looks pretty good on the car and it was actually a colour which was once available with the hatchback.
Premium quality paint has been used on the car and in order to achieve brand new car like look, the headlamps and tail lamps on this car have been replaced for new units. The rusted panels on the car were also restored as part of the process. The car looks brand new on the outisde. It continues to get steel rims with wheel caps. Overall, the work done on this car looks very neat and it looks like a Maruti Swift that has just rolled out of the production line.
Moving in, Autorounders have also customised the interior of this Maruti Swift. The fabric seats on the car were replaced for custom made seat covers. The pattern and design on the seat is something that the owner of this car had suggested. The fit and finish on the seat cover looks good and the brown coloured seat covers look pretty good as well. An aftermarket touchscreen infotainment system has also been installed in the car now.
Current generation Maruti swift that we have in the market is way more advanced in terms of features. The top-end variant now comes with company fitted touchscreen, projector headlamps and LED DRLs, alloy wheels, reverse parking camera and many more features. It is available with a 1.2 litre DualJet petrol engine and comes with manual and AMT gearbox options.
