Maruti Swift Glory Edition to launch today – IAB Report
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Based on the “V” trim level.
Maruti-Suzuki will launch the Maruti Swift Glory Edition, featuring a range of cosmetic and equipment upgrades that further personalizes the regular Swift.
The exterior of the Maruti Swift Glory edition comes with a body kit, side skirts finished in red, a rear spoiler, blackened C-Pillars, a contrasting red roof and wing mirrors, side decals and racing stripes.
Inside, it has a dual-tone red-and-black leather upholstery, and features a steering wheel and gear cover, Bluetooth-enabled music system and floor mats. Also exclusive to the Glory Edition is reverse parking assist along with a rear-view camera.
The Swift Glory edition is based on the VXi and VDi variants of the hatchback, which offer ABS and EBD. However, they are devoid of airbags, alloy wheels, automatic climate control, smart entry with engine starter button, steering mounted controls and a rear wiper/washer.
No mechanical changes have been made under the hood. The VXi variant packs the 1.2-liter K-Series petrol, while the VDi features a 1.3-liter DDiS diesel. Both engines are paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. The petrol variant is capable 20.4 km/l, whereas the diesel claims 25.2 km/l in the ARAI test.
Other special editions introduced by Maruti in recent time include the Maruti Swift SP and Maruti Alto K10 Onam edition. Also in the pipeline are the Indian debuts of the Ertiga facelift and Baleno premium hatchback this month.
