In just weeks after the all-new 2018 Suzuki Swift Sport’s reveal, car illustrator X-Tomi Design has rendered a ‘slammed’ version of the sporty hatchback. Now, this is something that a lot of modifiers will take inspiration from considering how popular the Swift is in the mod circuit.
As the gorgeous render indicates, key changes include a lowered stance, low profile tyres shod on wider alloy wheels, spacers that give the car a wider stance, and after-market fender to handle the extra width. The front grille shows some changes, and the intercooler is now visible. An intake scoop sits just below the front bonnet.
Other changes are the blacked out wing mirrors and the roof. At the rear, a hatch lid spoiler rounds off this very sporty piece of kit. Now, when people get around to building something like this, expect some fireworks under the hood given the fact that the Swift Sport will use a powerful turbocharged petrol motor.
The Swift Sport could be coming to India
Yes, Maruti Suzuki is said to be evaluating the prospects of this car in India. Indian buyers are warming up to fast hatchbacks, and Maruti has already tested waters with the Baleno RS. The all-new Swift Sport is the logical next step for India’s biggest car maker if it wants to build the performance-oriented car market here.
The 2018 Swift Sport is the most powerful ever, and is based on the latest HEARTECT platform that makes it quite light, at 970 kilograms for the manual variant and 990 kilograms for the automatic. It features a 1.4 liter-4 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that puts out 138 Bhp-230 Nm.
6 speed manual and automatic gearbox options will drive the front wheels of the car. Internationally, the car will be sold in six configurations. We’ll be lucky if we get one. Maruti, please bring this one here. You’re going to be building a million new Swifts anyway.
