Headlamps resemble a Mazda 3, but the rest is not. Still curious what it's off of. Probably too late to ask the original poster.

I too was interested to see what parts were used. While i have not found the core support i assume that it is from a Mazda 323 just look the bumper cover.
Well the more i look at it i also believe it is from the chevy cobalt, not the mazda. Looking at the grille opening above the bumber the lower part of the opening is strait across not v shaped like the mazda.
The lights however dont look like the cobalts, It the core support that has me wondering it doesnt look like either the mazda or the cobalts.
The fenders look like swift originals that have been altered to mate up to the bumper cover at the front.

That bumper and headlamps on that orange swift is not that bad.
But the cornerlamp doesn't match. They should of ditch the toyota emblem also. And add some gti sideskirts on the car it should look decent.
