Maruti is all set to bring in the new gen Dzire and as far as launches go this does not get bigger. The Dzire is the cash cow for Maruti, selling in huge numbers month after month with no rival even nearby. If the current Dzire is still so popular the new one will break new records easily. Thus the third gen version has to carry on what made the current one popular but also bring in a new look, new interior and features.
It does exactly that. This is a new car, new platform, new everything. Styling wise it is a lot better looking now being based on the new gen Swift which in-turn will come in next year. of course the Dzire being the more premium compact sedan version is slightly different with a changed front bumper and rear with new tail-lamps. It looks much better and has way more presence over the earlier one. Inside too it is based on the new Swift hatch with a new look dash and sportier steering wheel. Both quality and design is on an another level. Also like new Maruti cars, the features list gets the touchscreen infotainment system with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto plus climate control, LED DRLs etc.
Engine options would be the same with the 1.2 petrol and diesel. While a 5-speed manual is standard the AMT would be there too. We expect a launch towards end of May, last week with competitive pricing.
