Maruti Swift may soon receive a sports offer in the form of Swift Sport. The hot hatch should be a strong competitor to the Hyundai i20 N Line
Maruti Swift Sports has passed the ARAI test in India. ARAI is a certification body that allocates performance parameters to Indian cars, including fuel economy. Swift is one of the best-selling hatchbacks on the market for years. Swift Sport is a hot-hatch version that has become popular in various international markets. The largest carmaker in the country may consider introducing it to our market to counter models such as the Hyundai i20 N Line.

The listened pictures capture the camouflaged version of the hot hatch. The white Swift has a rear cover with the inscription Swift Sport. Another unique and sporty element on the back is the chrome-plated double-wheel output tips on the bumper. The pictures also show a ceiling-mounted spoiler. However, the overall design of the Swift remains the same as the conventional version sold in India. This usually applies to the hot-hatch version of any car. There are a few elements on the outside as well as the inside to show that it is a special edition, but the overall layout remains the same.

The international model Swift Sport comes with a 1.4-liter turbocharged direct injection engine that produces 140 PS and 230 Nm of maximum power and torque. This engine is mated to a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Adjustments have been made to the suspension, steering wheel and some other bits to ensure dynamic machining characteristics. It would be interesting to know whether Maruti will bring this engine in a Swift Sport or a 1.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that previously powered the Baleno RS.

In any case, if Maruti decides to bring this sports version of the Swift, it will be interesting to see how potential consumers will react to it. With a 1.0-liter mill, Maruti may also try to shorten the i20 N Line to offer buyers a great alternative. But we have to wait to see when Maruti Swift Sport officially announces its arrival. More details will be known later.
