The new Maruti Suzuki Swift has been busy setting sales charts on fire. The new Swift really has a lot to offer – it’s attractively priced, offers very frugal and sufficiently powerful engines, a modern design, a comfortable cabin, and is pretty fun to drive. We’ve already seen many new Swift-based mod jobs from abroad. Finally, there’s an Indian mod-job that has made us sit up and take notice. The highlight of this modified Swift is its very sporty stance. The car has been substantially lowered and rides on custom multi-spoke alloys that have a negative offset. The larger rims are shod with wider, low-profile rubber. Other than this, the front grille gets a red pinstripe, much like what the RS variant gets. The car also gets a black roof and black-painted ORVM caps. At the rear, it gets a black-painted roof spoiler and all the badges have been removed to give the car a very neat look. Apart from these changes, the exterior remains much like that of the stock … [Read more...] about India’s first lowrider new Maruti Suzuki Swift

Tuner cars interest almost everyone into automobiles. And why not – buying a sportscar to satiate you need for speed is no big deal if you have the money, but the joy of building your own fast car is a lot more involving and of course, a lot less expensive. Shopping online for parts, making sure you have the correct codes for the parts, spending weekends at a garage smelling the fuel, listening to the turbo whistle, that louder exhaust note… The list is virtually endless, no? This Maruti runs the old Baleno sedan's 1.6-litre petrol engine with a bolt-on turbocharger and is quicker than a few German performance cars on track Not to mention, that feeling of beating an expensive European performance car in a small Japanese tuner! Talking about tuner cars in India, the Maruti Suzuki Swift needs no introduction as one of the most popular ones in the country. The Swift has always been looked upon as an enthusiast car with its kind of sprightly performance, nimble handling and … [Read more...] about This might just be India’s quickest accelerating Maruti Suzuki Swift!
The new-gen Maruti Swift is among the sportiest B1-segment hatchbacks you can buy today. Thanks to its funky looks, sufficiently powerful engines, and low kerb weight, it’s only a matter of time before modified Swifts become a regular sight on our roads. Well, some Swift owners have already started customizing their rides. Seen here is perhaps India’s first-ever lowered new-gen Maruti Suzuki Swift. The lowered stance of this new-gen Swift is courtesy of Cobra lowering springs. These springs are made in the Netherlands and have been imported into the country by Delhi-based AM Racing. The lowered Swift has a ground clearance of roughly 140 mm, which is 30 mm lower than the stock car. To put things in perspective, the sporty BMW 3-series has a ground clearance of 140 mm. Also, the modified new Maruti Suzuki Swift you see here has a set of aftermarket 17-inch alloy wheels. These are shod with 215/45-spec tires. The cost of the imported lowering springs for the new-gen Swift is … [Read more...] about India’s first-ever lowered new Maruti Suzuki Swift: This is IT!
The new Maruti Suzuki Swift, introduced in India during February 2018, is already a mega hit, what with over 1 lakh bookings received in less than 2 months of launch. Maruti Suzuki has now started exporting the right-hand drive Swift to South Africa, a key export market for the car. The Swift exported is built from the newly commissioned Gujarat factory. Earlier this year, Maruti moved production of the Baleno premium hatchback from Gujarat to Manesar to accommodate the new Swift, which is expected to generate massive demand, and along with it long waiting times. Now that Maruti is exporting the Swift to South Africa, waiting times for Indian buyers may go up further. The 3rd generation Swift that has been exported to South Africa is yet to be launched there. The car sold in India is offered with two engine options – a 1.2 liter K-Series petrol with 82 Bhp of peak power and 113 Nm of peak torque, and a 1.3 liter Fiat Multijet turbodiesel with 74 Bhp and 190 Nm. Both engines get a … [Read more...] about New Maruti Suzuki Swift: Exports to South Africa commence from Gujarat factory
In some ways we Indians are now a truly empowered people, simply because our consumers now have the power to 'pick and choose'. The Collins English Dictionary defines 'pick and choose' as, "When you carefully choose only things that you really want and reject the others". Yes, thanks to the growing economy and rise in disposable incomes, along with the availability of a plethora of products, almost every Indian now only wants to buy what attracts him, and what's latest in the market. The vehicle has to be different and it must offer something out of the ordinary. And of course it must look good, have lots of features, be a good performer, while obviously also providing good value. Despite some serious competition, Maruti Suzuki has been able to maintain its stranglehold as market leader, mainly because it's able to deliver all of the above. Maruti have really worked hard and done well to have a large variety of vehicles in their portfolio, almost all of which are most successful in our … [Read more...] about Auto siblings: Maruti Suzuki Baleno, New-gen Maruti Suzuki Swift and Maruti Suzuki Ignis
