Maruti Suzuki unveils new Dzire, price starts from Rs 5.45 lakh

Maruti Suzuki Dzire

One of Maruti Suzuki's key dealer Rana Motors in south Delhi registered about 80 percent of the bookings for the petrol variant with the balance 20 percent for diesel.

Kenichi Ayukawa, managing director and chief executive officer, Maruti Suzuki, said, "The all new DZire has the looks and design of an authentic sedan". The model has been contributing to around 50 per cent of vehicle sales in the compact sedan segment. Maruti spent Rs 1,000 crore to develop the new Dzire.

The upcoming version of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire will be the third generation Dzire.

Dzire is one of the main models of Maruti Suzuki.

In terms of design, the new DZire gets a redesigned front fascia with bold chrome finished grille and projector headlamps. The company has said that the response has been strong because of what is on offer. It has 378 litres of boot space, 62 litres more than that of the outgoing model. But this time, Dzire comes before the new Swift and the latter may be launched during the 14th auto expo next year.

Engines: All cars have sub 1.5 litre engines. Both motors are offered with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard and get the option of a five-speed AMT unit as well. The diesel Dzire runs 28.4 km/litre (6.8 per cent improvement compared to its predecessor) while the petrol version can cover 22 km per litre and has seen a 5.5 per cent improvement, largely due to 105 kg weight reduction. The auto uses high tensile steel in its construction and brings new safety standards and crash-worthiness to Maruti Suzuki's product offering.

According to RS Kalsi, the new Maruti will be produced only at Manesar plant for now although there is sufficient capacity available at the Gurgaon plant as well.

The base L trim (LXi, LDi) gets basic equipment such as steel wheels, dual-tone interior, manual air- conditioning and tilt adjust steering. The rear seats also get ISOFIX child anchorages.

Automobile major Maruti Suzuki on Tuesday launched the new Dzire sedan. It can be opted in a total of 4 trim levels - LXi/LDi, VXi/VDi, ZXi/ZDi and ZXi+/ZDi+.

Customers will also appreciate the superior fuel efficiency of the New Dzire. The V trims also come with a music system which is a 2-DIN unit that comes with Bluetooth connectivity, USB and AUX inputs.
