Even as the launch of the Hyundai Xcent – a compact sedan – is just around the corner, Maruti Suzuki has released a limited edition version of the Swift Dzire LDi. Dubbed the Dzire LDi X, the limited edition version of the compact sedan gets a host of new features while remaining mechanically unchanged. The car is powered by the 1.3 liter Fiat Multijet turbo diesel engine that is good for 75 Bhp-190 Nm. A five speed manual gearbox is standard.
The new features on the Swift Dzire LDi X are,
Vanity mirror on the sun visor
Body coloured wing mirrors
Integrated turn indicators on wing mirrors
Front fog lamps
Remote central locking
Inner rear view mirror with night mode
LDi-X limited edition decals
The Dzire LDi X limited edition variant is priced at 6.86 lakh rupees, on-road Delhi, a price premium of about 37 thousand rupees from the regular LDi variant. Maruti Suzuki claims that the additional features on the LDi X model is worth about 46,500 rupees. By introducing the LDi X variant, Maruti Suzuki is offering a similar level of kit as it does on the VDi variant, albeit at a price that is about 67,000 rupees lower (Dzire VDi is priced at 7.53 lakh rupees on-road Delhi).
The Dzire is sold in seven other variants, 4 in petrol and 3 in diesel. The 4 petrol variants of the Dzire are powered by the 1.2 liter K-Series petrol engine that outputs 86 Bhp-114 Nm. While a five speed gearbox is standard on the LXi, VXi and ZXi variants, the VXi automatic version of the car gets a 4 speed automatic gearbox. The Dzire is India’s best selling sedan. However, competition is growing what with the likes of two new compact sedans, the Hyundai Xcent and the Tata Zest, lined up.
