Maruti will launch the new Dzire on the 16th of next month. Maruti has dropped the Swift from the name as the Dzire is a strong brand in is own right. The Dzire will come in earlier than the Swift hatch on which it is based. Currently the Dzire is the best seller in its class and has been the best selling sedan for the last three years.
To be launched with petrol and diesel engines with both having AMT gearbox options the new Dzire is poised to breathe new life into the compact sedan space which has been feeling the heat from compact SUVs and premium hatchbacks. In terms of pricing do not expect to pay much extra from the current car as Maruti will look to keep the pricing competitive. Thus it will be priced along with the current model which means that is great value considering the changes.
