From Swift Dzire to Dzire, Maruti’s compact sedan has come of age. On board the all-new Dzire, with its elegant design and a plethora of features.
Sales rev up
Every month, 10,500 Dzires on average hit the streets, making it the largest-selling car in the segment. Compact sedans are second only to hatchbacks when it comes to popular demand. Less than 4 meter in length, compact sedans come with a lower tax bill and price tag. A consumer who goes to a showroom to buy a hatchback often drives home a compact sedan.
Swift Dzire sedan made its debut in 2008, to cash in on the popularity of the Swift hatchback. The sedan carved a space for itself in a short time, thanks to the credibility and manufacturing quality of Maruti. Dzire turned a compact sedan from the second generation.
Third-generation Dzire is miles ahead of its predecessor. The name ‘Swift’ was dropped, maybe because the new generation Swift is yet to be launched in India. Dzire has a broad grill that resembles that of the new-generation Swift unveiled in Japan last year. Headlamps with LED daytime running lights slant to the sides. Big fog lamps add to the oomph.
Dzire has flawless design in any angle. This elegance is the hallmark of the sedan. The 15-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, beautiful LED tail lamps and the chrome line that connects them elevates the rear look.
The new Dzire is slightly bigger. It is 3,995 millimeter long, while the width has been increased by 20 millimeters to 1,735 millimeters. It is shorter by 40 millimeters at 1,515 millimeters. The wheel base is greater by 20 millimeters at 2,450 millimeters.
You can’t complain of less boot space anymore. You have 879 liters of space. The car is made in a new lighter platform. The petrol model is lighter by 85 kilos than the previous version and the diesel model lighter by 105 kilos.
The interior is as good as a Zest. The wood finished dashboard panels, the large LED display, the flat bottom steering and big seats are unique features. Dials and clusters are sporty, with a mix of beige, black and chromium.
The manual-gear model comes with a touch screen multimedia system that can support Android Auto and Apple Car Play. The rear seats have their own aid-conditioner vents and charging points. The change in the wheel base provides extra space inside the car.
The AMT model in diesel and petrol variants are designed to pamper you. Get cozy inside. It has enough strength and comfortable smoothness. AMT gear boxes are particularly excellent in Maruti cars.
Dzire’s diesel variant gives you 28.4 kilometers per liter, claiming to be the car with the greatest mileage in its segment. The petrol car offers 22 kilometers.
Except the basic version, all variants come with an option of AMT gear boxes. There are two air bags and ABS.
All-new Dzire is better but not costlier than the previous generations. The petrol model is priced at between Rs 5.04 lakh to Rs 8.04 lakh and the diesel model is priced at between Rs 7.10 lakh and Rs 9.05 lakh.
