Maruti Dzire has become extremely popular in the Indian market. The sub 4-meter sedan became the highest selling car in the Indian market soon after its launch. The Dzire was launched with an all-new body design that includes an all-new front grille. With so many new Dzires on the road, it becomes quite difficult to differentiate one from the other. This Dzire, however, looks quite different from the rest, thanks to the visual modifications done to it.
The all-new Dzire seen here gets a new vertical slated grille, which is similar to what we get to see on the S-Cross facelift that was also launched in India last year. The grille is not a direct fit from the S-Cross. It has been custom made for the Dzire to give it a more macho look. The car also gets new LED fog lamps and new DRL. Maruti already offers DRL with the Dzire but only the top-end versions of the car get them. The DRLs look similar to the ones that come with the high-end Dzire variants but they are shorter in length and look quite different without the projector headlamps.
Another accessory that has been added to the new car is the Matrix sill plates. The illuminated scuff plates look quite cool and save the sill from scratches. Apart from these visual changes, everything else stays the same.
The Dzire is offered with two engine options – a 1.2-litre petrol K-Series engine and a 1.3-litre diesel turbocharged engine. The petrol engine offers a maximum output of 84 Bhp – 114 Nm while the diesel engine produces a maximum of 74 Bhp and 200 Nm. Both the engine options get manual as well as AMT options. Even though the engine options and the output remain same as the last generation of the car, the new Dzire’s HEARTECT platform lowers the overall weight of the vehicle that makes it perform much better and increases the fuel efficiency too. The new Dzire petrol offers a maximum mileage of 22 km/l while the diesel engine offers 28.4 km/l.
