Maruti Suzuki Swift glory soon will Lunched


With the festive season in full-swing, carmakers in India are going all out to woo customers. The latest effort from the stables of Maruti Suzuki will be a limited edition of the Swift hatchback – the Glory Edition. Since it is a special edition, the Maruti hatchback will get only cosmetic changes along with some features, but no changes to its powertrain.

The list of cosmetic changes on the Maruti Suzuki Swift Glory Edition will include a red roof and wing mirrors, racing stripes, decals on the side, blackened C-Pillars, side skirts and a rear spoiler. The limited edition Maruti Swift’s cabin will don dual-tone red and black garniture for the seats, gear cover, and the steering wheel.

Other victual will include a new music system with Bluetooth support, parking assist with a rear-view camera, new floor mats. To be offered on the VXi and VDi trims, the Maruti Swift Glory Edition will also get automatic climate control, an engine start-stop button, and steering mounted controls.

Though the car’s list of safety features will miss airbags, it will get anti-lock braking system (ABD) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD).

As described, above, the car will not see any mechanical changes; it will continue to be powered by the 1.2-litre K-Series petrol and 1.3-litre multijet diesel motor. Both the engine options come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The car will be offered in limited numbers, and is expected to be launched this week.
