The much anticipated Maruti Suzuki Dzire was launched in India in May 2017. The compact sedan was developed from ground up, and not just an addition of an extended boot to a hatchback, as was the case with its predecessor, the Swift Dzire. At a starting price of Rs 5.45 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), Maruti may churn out healthy sales figures through the new Dzire. It has received some major upgrades both inside and out. Following is a list of features that the compact sedan has to offer.
First up, the Dzire gets an all new modern design. It is based on the company's 'Heartect' B-platform that has made the car weigh lesser by up to 105 kg for the diesel and 85 kg for the petrol versions. It comes with LED projector headlamps with DRLs (Daytime Running Lamps), LED tail lamps, OVRMs (Outside Rear View Mirrors) with turn indicators, chrome embellished front grille and 15-inch alloy wheels. How many of the features will be available in your car depends upon the variant you choose.
The top end variant of the Dzire comes with an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also doubles for navigation and has connectivity options including Bluetooth, USB and Aux-In.
The compact sedan comes equipped with several safety features. It gets ABS with EBD, brake assist, dual airbags engine immobiliser and child seat anchorage as standard across all variants. Higher variants also get reverse parking sensors, reverse parking camera, fog lamps, rear defogger and anti-theft security system.
On the inside, the Dzire gets dual-tone dashboard, along with wood finish in the dash and a flat bottom steering wheel. The new Dzire is wider by 40 mm than the older model, hence providing increased leg and shoulder room. Other comfort features include push button start/stop, electrically retractable ORVMs, automatic climate control, rear AC vents and driver's power window with auto up/down function.
The new Dzire also has increased boot space. The the old generation Swift Dzire had 316 litres of boot capacity, the Dzire gets a 376-litre boot. Higher variants also get a luggage room lamp.
