Dude, mags and alloys, it's basically one word split up, Magnesium Alloy!!! Now those wheels are not magnesium for sure, as the cost a bomb, but we've come to call 'Wheels' mags, even when they don't contain Magnesium!!!
So basically it's a set of Aluminium Alloy wheels!!

Nice car by the way jathin!!!

Default Is the Suzuki Swift design a copy?

It seems the design of Suzuki Swift is an exact copy of the BMW Mini Cooper. I wasn't knowing it till I saw it in a recent HBO movie.

Am I right or wrong?

wrong. there are quiet a many differences. firstly, this is bigger and more bulkier than the mini cooper, and the front end is not like the mini cooper. the semi circular kinda bonet.

I really like the design of the swift. nd yes it does look a lot like a mini cooper especially with the white top nd white mirrors. the one thing that i like a lot about the swift is that it doesnt really need a bodykit to look good. A swift with just 17" wheels nd tints looks really good

9k is like wow! Plz get the pics man ASAP!!!

@others,

guys dont even dare to compare the swift with the Mini Cooper. the coop is lower, smaller and well built. The Swift is not a "ditto" copy but i agree that it kinda resembles the cooper but to a small extent. the difference are, the front is completely different, the rear is kinda similar but the swift is taller. The similarity came because of the flat roof and wide body. I guess the designers of Swift did see the Italian Job movie while having their lunch break and hence got inspired

There are many ppl who tried to imitate the Cooper, like putting white roof and vinyl stripe at the bottom skirt part, but no one can even match the ultimate Cooper!!!
