Maruti Suzuki Dzire has been launched in India at Rs 5.45 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).  The sub-four-metre compact sedan has been the segment leader in India. Deliveries will start today onwards and has already got eight weeks waiting period. Just like its predecessor, the new Dzire is positioned between the Swift hatchback and the Baleno premium hatch.

The new Dzire has been built ground up and gets all new styling. While the essence of the Swift looks has been carried forward, the fascia is chiselled and gets the new horizontally slatted hexagonal grille with chrome lining and chrome accents on the air dam. The headlamps now have LED daytime running lamps embedded in it. The profile is also largely similar to the previous car with the signature flared wheel arches and all-new alloy wheels. The new Dzire is 40mm wider than the outgoing car, while the wheelbase is increased by 20mm. The boot space measures 378litres. 

On the inside, the interior is all new and gets wooden inserts on the dashboard, steering and the door trims. The steering is all-new and Maruti Suzuki has opted for a flat bottom wheel for the first time in India. The head unit for the entertainment system has been sourced from the Baleno along with the automatic climate control unit that will be offered only in the higher trims. There are AC vents at the back for rear passengers. Electronic power steering, front power windows and internally adjustable wing mirrors will be standard on the Dzire along with dual front airbags and ABS with EBD. 

The Dzire will be offered in five trims – L, V, V , Z and Z with two engine options each – petrol and diesel. The petrol engine is the same old 1.2-litre four cylinder unit that develops 84bhp of power and comes mated to a five-speed manual and a five-speed AMT gearbox option. The diesel mill is also the tried and tested 1.3-litre turbocharged diesel Multijet engine that develops 74bhp of power and comes with the same gearbox options as the petrol. The automatic option is available on all trims except the base L trims. Maruti claims the fuel efficiency for the petrol variant to be at 22kmpl while the diesel is at 28.4kmpl. 

The 2017 Maruti Suzuki Dzire will continue competing with the Hyundai Xcent which has been recently updated as well, the Honda Amaze, the newly launched Tata Tigor and the Ford Aspire as well as the Volkswagen Ameo.
