Maruti Suzuki drove in a limited edition of their popular Swift hatchback. The Glory edition gets a reverse camera and rear parking sensors as major add-ons along with other plastic parts and body graphics.
The Swift Glory edition gets side skirts, a rear spoiler, blackened C-Pillars, a contrast red roof and wing mirrors, side decals and racing stripes. The Glory edition will come with contrast upholstery with black being the primary colour along with red highlights. The steering wheel and gear will be wrapped in leather cover, a Bluetooth-enabled music system and new floor mats will also differentiate the Glory Edition from the standard Swift.
The Swift Glory edition is available on the VXi and VDi variants of the hatchback. These variants offer ABS and EBD but airbags are absent, alloy wheels, automatic climate control, smart entry with engine starter button, steering mounted controls and a rear wiper. Mechanically, the cars will remain the same. The Swift VDi comes equipped with a 1.3-litre DDiS-series engine that produces 84bhp and 114Nm of torque and is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.The K-Series 1.2 litre engine does duty on the VXi. The petrol delivers 20.4 km/l, whereas the diesel claims 25.2 km/l in the ARAI test.
Along with Maruti Suzuki Swift Glory Edition, other two launches are the Ertiga facelift and the Suzuki Baleno which will be positioned above the Swift and will be sold exclusively through the NEXA outlets, which also sell the S-Cross.
