Default 2011 Swift Sport!

1.6L M16A, 134bhp, 16.2kgm, sub 10 secs to 100!

Of course- it may never come to India, but still- even a trimmed down version would have been an enthusiast's dream come true!

Smoking Swift. I would expect to see its clones once the new Swift is launched in India. The present gen Swift seems to be a mod favorite.

Now thats really sporty. Love the slanting fog lights and the alloys. The fact that its a 2 door makes it look even better!

Looks like its a 2 door swift, Maruti long time back did experiment with 2 door sports car thingy by launching Old Zen with model names "Carbon" and "Steel". I was seriously tempted to buy one until i was stopped hard on my tracks by family members.

The specs look cool, and i think Maruti may come with 4-door equivalent on the likes of Palio 1.6 GTX (esp the yellow Sachin signature one) a hot hatch because of which i was tempted to exchange my Indica after 2 years of ownership but stopped because financially it wouldn't have made sense.

The car looks amazing. I'm sure a number of people would love to clone the looks. 17 or 18 inch alloys look awesome. The blacked out theme in front makes the car look even sportier (looks like an Alpha Romeo). I wish MSIL plonks a larger MJD from Fiat or larger TDi from VW into the new swift and launch it as a "Sports" version.

Uh oh.... yeah right, experiment! That was unsold export stock dumped in India with a few stickers and lot of promise.

WOW !

The model looks nice, I wish it would have been a 4WD, to do justice with the sports look.

Overall shape seems to be inspired from A-Star.

Just a curious observation: is it having a single wiper ?

It looks Great !!
Wish Maruti Suzuki introudce it here...

They can score on all their competitios as none of them have a sport model of their cars AFAIK.

Swift looks the best in white.

editing:
Hmm The Yellow Swift looks even hotter!!!

I do not like the 3 door hatch, but, I would like the 138 ps mill to launched in India in SX4 to give company to ANHC, ANHV & the likes.

Come on Maruti you don't need to get a new model. Just get this one here. I'm you'll have a bigger wait list than the one when Swift was first introduced way back in 2005.

Swift Sport = Poor Man's Porsche*

If we could customize the engine / trims it'll make the deal even sweeter.

The front grille seems to be very reminiscent to the Audi RS5's grille. I mean it may not look exactly the same but it does tend to remind me of that car. Suzuki might never launch this car in India considering we always love 4 doors. Also this car's pricing will be very close to some bigger cars from their stable.

Poor Man's Porsche has always been the Boxter, this could be the India's poor man Porsche.

Now, this should be a worthy competitor of the Fiesta Hatch!. If at all, they both are launched.
