The all-new 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift, known as the Suzuki Swift in other parts of the world, is quite a new car. Not many modified examples of it have surfaced yet but here’s a render that will give you a picture of how wild the new Swift can be made to look. Put together by G-Wise design of Taiwan, the render previews a body kit that’s likely to be developed soon for the popular hatchback.
From the render, it’s clear that the car gets a makeover at the front with a new bumper and a tweaked bonnet design. At the rear, there’s a prominent hatch lid spoiler.
The alloy wheels are from the Swift Sport. These changes make the new Swift look pretty wild and don’t be surprised to see such kits flooding the market in the coming months considering the fact that the car has already been launched in prominent South East Asian countries such as India and Thailand.
The 2018 Swift that was introduced in India during February is already a massive hit. The third generation car has already racked up bookings of over 1 lakh units, and Maruti is having a hard time meeting demand. The car sold in India gets petrol and turbocharged diesel engine options. The petrol engine is a 1.2 litre K-Series unit with 82 Bhp and 113 Nm while the diesel is a 1.3 litre Fiat turbocharged Multijet unit with 74 Bhp and 190 Nm. Both engines get 5 speed manual gearboxes as standard while 5 speed AMT options are available on both engines.
Since the Swift now uses the lightweight HEARTECT platform, it has become significantly lighter than the 2nd generation model. This lightness has endowed the petrol Swift with great acceleration even as Maruti’s engineers have tuned the diesel Swift for better fuel efficiency. The car now gets ABS and airbags as standard across the range. The big addition to the Swift line up in India could happen sometime next year, when Maruti brings in the Swift Sport. For now though, the plan is still under consideration.
