Maruti Suzuki is trying to spice up the Swift supermini by introducing a new special edition called “Glory.” As you can see, this is addressed to those who prefer a sportier appearance as the car gets racing stripes, side decals and a contrasting red roof combined with the predominantly white body. A similar red hue has also been applied onto the side mirror caps, side skirts, roof-mounted spoiler and the front & rear bumpers.
Stepping inside the cabin, the black theme blends nicely with the red accents to create a two-tone look for the upholstery and steering wheel. It comes nicely equipped as standard with a rearview camera, bespoke floor mats and an audio system providing Bluetooth support.
Taking into account the Glory special edition is only available on the VXi and VDi trims, it means the hatchback doesn’t have alloy wheels, airbags, smart start button, rear wiper & washer and buttons mounted on the steering wheel, but you do get as standard ABS with EBD as standard equipment.
This latest special edition from Maruti Suzuki is all about cosmetic tweaks as there aren’t any mechanical changes. Customers can buy the Swift Glory with either a 1.2-liter gasoline engine teamed up with a five-speed manual gearbox or a 1.3-liter DDiS diesel that works with the same transmission. If you go for the gasoline unit, the car will do 20.4 kmpl whereas the more frugal diesel ensures 25.2 kmpl.
It will be interesting to see how the Swift Glory will do in terms of sales taking into account the forthcoming festive season when many Indian manufacturers have the tendency to come out with more limited-run models to entice buyers even further. With this latest product from Maruti Suzuki, the goal is probably to attract younger clients given the car’s sporty styling accents both inside and out.
