Prices of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire Facelift have leaked onto the interweb, and the car is slightly pricier than the outgoing version even as it gains a raft of new features. Once again, Maruti Suzuki seems to have hit the sweet spot in terms of pricing, and this could allow the Dzire to maintain its huge lead over rivals in the compact sedan segment here. Available in seven variants, the Dzire Facelift starts at 5.07 lakh rupees for the base petrol version, going all the way up to 7.81 lakh rupees, for the top-end diesel version. The price of the automatic variant of the car is yet to be revealed.
Here is the complete price list of the new Dzire –
- LXi – 5.07 lakh rupees
- LXi (O) – 5.20 lakh rupees
- VXi – 5.85 lakh rupees
- ZXi – 6.80 lakh rupees
- LDi – 5.99 lakh rupees
- VDi – 6.85 lakh rupees
- ZDi – 7.81 lakh rupees
In terms of changes on the outside, the car gets smoked headlamps, a revised front grille with a chrome deluge, new air dams, revised fog lamp housings with chrome inserts, 10 spoke alloy wheels, a chrome garnish on the bootlid, a re-profiled rear bumper and two new colours. On the inside, a push button start, keyless entry, Bluetooth connectivity, reverse parking sensors, new steering mounted controls and electrically retracting wing mirrors have been added. Most of the features on the Dzire Facelift’s insides are similar to the ones added to the facelifted Swift, a hatchback with whom the compact sedan shares most parts with. The LXi (O) variant has been added to the line up.
While the engines and gearboxes remain unchanged in terms of specifications, in remains to be seen if the fuel efficiency sees a bump up on the Dzire, just as it has on the Swift Facelift. The 1.2 liter K-Series motor with 86 Bhp-114 Nm and the 1.3 liter Fiat Multijet turbo diesel motor with 75 Bhp-190 Nm have been retained, with both engines using five speed manual transmissions to power the front wheels. The petrol powered Dzire Facelift is also expected to be made available with a 4 speed torque converter automatic transmission, as was the case previously. Meanwhile, the facelifted Dzire has already begun reaching dealerships, and will soon go on sale officially.
