Looks a bit like a brake proportioning valve. They add more rear bias as the cargo weight increases.

More common on commercial vehicles. I didn't know they came on a swift though.

Baleno / swift .... Same same... Let's just call it a cultus ey?

Is it a brake bias valve?

Yep, looks like a load sensing brake proportion valve to me. (Although it doesn't look like it was installed correctly.)

Apparently they did, also didn't know I had 91Bhp, that's pretty cool.

The image above isn't self-adjusting drum brakes as described in the link.
