Maruti Swift Crossover Avatar
SRK Designs are professional digital designers of automobiles and have developed a ton of exquisite and unique exteriors for a whole bunch of vehicles. This time around, they have chosen the Swift and have turned it into a crossover. The front fascia looks almost unchanged save for a couple of alterations around the bumper region. The blacked-out bumper along with the skid plate makes the entire front sportier. This has been extended to the sides as well. The wheel arches are pronounced and the body skirting looks neat ass well. The silver inserts on the side skirting look rugged too. The point of interest is the blacked-out A, B and C-pillars with roof rails which bring the actual crossover vibe to the hatchback. The rear door handle is located on the C-pillar much like in the regular version.
the regular Maruti Swift comes with a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine good for 88 hp and 113 Nm of peak power and torque respectively. There are options of either a 5-speed manual or an AMT gearbox. The prices of the Maruti Swift range between Rs 5.85 lakh and Rs 8.67 lakh, ex-showroom. The rivals include the likes of Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and Tata Tiago. Do let us know what you think of this crazy iteration of the popular hatchback.
