The Swift is all set to get a major update next year. Spy shots of the same have been doing the rounds from across the globe over the past few months. Since the Swift is going to be upgraded soon, the Dzire will get a similar treatment as well. My friend, Rohit Dagar managed to get the first ever spy shots of the all new Dzire testing.
So what’s new?
Maruti has been leading this segment with the Dzire ever since it has been introduced. This one looks all set to continue the segment domination. For starters, what can be seen are projector headlamps with what looks like DRLs similar to that on the S-Cross. The car now sports a larger grill as well, more inline with the new design philosophy Maruti is using.
The rear end also looks like it has been redone, with an all new bumper and a new tailgate design. From what Rohit had to say, it looks like Maruti has put a LED tail lamp cluster on this vehicle. In addition to that, the new vehicle looks a lot more sportier than the outgoing car. What Maruti has also done is put in a nice set of alloy wheels that look really cool. We hope this makes it to the production spec variant as well.
From the spy shots of the new Swift that we have seen, we expect a similar sort of interior layout on the Dzire as well. So it will most likely a get the large touch screen system which will most probably feature Apple Car play as well.
Under the hood, we expect the same 1.2 liter petrol and 1.3 liter diesel engines to do their duty. What will be interesting to see is if Maruti opts to bring in the SHVS mild hybrid technology into the petrol and diesel variants of the Dzire. Maruti is planning to introduce the SHVS technology on the Ignis petrol and it will likely make it into the Swift and the Baleno also. According to Rohit, who owns a remapped Swift diesel, it took a lot of effort for him to keep up with the car which means that this one is surely more powerful than the outgoing one.
This new vehicle is expected to hit our shores only later next year and it will most likely be after the new Swift. But this new design language that Maruti is following has indeed got us excited.
A special thanks to Rohit once again for sending us the pictures.
