Maruti Suzuki is India’s largest car manufacturer. They have a variety of products in their line up in India. Some of the products are available in international market as well. One such car from Maruti Suzuki that is sold under Suzuki badge is the Dzire sedan. It is one of the most popular sub-4 meter compact sedan sold in the country. It competes with cars like Hyundai Aura, Xcent, Honda Amaze in the segment. Here we have a video from Juliet Mcguire, who is a leading motor journalist from South Africa. Juliet shares a video were she talks about what she liked and did not like about the new Dzire sedan.
The video has been uploaded by Juliet McGuire on her YouTube channel. She starts by saying that, this is one of the car that she loves and the reason behind that is the Swift. This peppy little hatchback is something that she would recommend to people for its ride quality, handling and it is also a value for money product.
The Dzire seen in the video is the current generation sedan and the last generation was known as Swift Dzire. The current version is also based on Swift but, Suzuki has just removed the Swift badge from it. She loves Dzire mainly because of the way it drives. It is quite refined and feels solid. Another reason is the way it looks. Juliet personally likes the look of Dzire and says that even the interiors on this car do not look like something you would normally see in a budget car. The interiors give it a premium look on the inside.
Just like in India, Dzire is a very common car used in taxi services and she feels that the decent boot space, good ride quality and a fuel efficient engine is the reason why people choose it. The only thing that she complained about the car was the engine. The 1.2 litre naturally aspirated engine feels a little underpowered especially when you are driving on a steep incline with fully loaded boot.
The car will definitely climb up but, the driver will have to make down shifts for it. Other than that, she was pretty happy with the car. She also mentions that the Dzire is available with both manual and automatic gearbox option and she would prefer driving the manual any day. She also mentions that, the Suzuki Dzire is a very practical, solid, refined and value for money product and if anyone was looking for a car in this segment, Dzire is a car that they should consider.
Juliet also mentions that Suzuki offers a CD player which is quite uncommon these days. She was impressed with the sound quality of Dzire as well. There are two variants of Suzuki Dzire in the market and the one she was driving was probably the lower variant but, even that gets features like power windows, ESP and offers safety features as standard across the range. Overall, the journalist was happy with the overall experience with the Suzuki Dzire.
