Such a derivative has not been confirmed by the automaker.Popular automotive rendering artist Theophilus Chin has come up with yet another wishful thought. The Maruti Swift Convertible isn’t something that the automaker has in its pipeline but here is a speculative rendering to help you decide if you would like one anyway.
The topless small car’s rendering is based on the current gen two-door Swift Sport. The tight-fitting roof is no doubt one of the salient visual features of the Swift’s widely acclaimed design but the hatch looks no less impressive without it. There is no single awkward angle and we can’t help but think that Suzuki could pull it off if at all it decides to develop a convertible Swift based on the upcoming next gen model. Considering that Suzuki’s next gen small car platform features a strengthened floor pan, a convertible project wouldn’t be too much of a technical challenge.
The hypothetical Maruti Swift Convertible could be marketed as an affordable and fun little open top car. The Swift’s proven powertrain lineup and handling characteristics would certainly add to the character. It could be positioned as a cheaper alternative to the premium compact open-top cars like the MINI Convertible, Fiat 500 Cabrio and VW Beetle Convertible.
