Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
This particular Maruti dealer in South India has modified the Swift, calling it the Platinum Edition. Unlike the Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition, the Swift Platinum Edition has not been announced by the carmaker, and it is a complete dealer-level spin off.
The grille and airdam which come in a black plastic on a regular Swift, are painted in silver for this edition. The headlamp and taillamp clusters are completely customized, offering LED daytime running lights, blackened lenses, what seems like projector headlights and the brake lights seem to use LEDs as well.
The dealer has fitted the Swift with front and rear bumper spoilers, side skirts and a roof-mounted spoiler, while the roof gets a black color (a black wrap) contrasting the white body. Side body decals with the ‘Swift’ logo and grey alloy wheels complete the exterior package.
Inside, the dealer has included artificial leather seat covers and an Alpine-branded stereo system with an amplifier and four Sony speakers. Apart from these visual fitments, the mechanicals of the car are unchanged.
The dealer says that this customization pack is available on all variants of the car, be it petrol or diesel, though preferably, the owner should pick the white body color.
The cost? Add an extra INR 1,45,950 to the on-road price of the Swift, says the dealer.
