The Complete Car
As you can see in the picture, this month our long-term Dzire was replaced by another Dzire. For the past five months we were driving the diesel manual version, but now we’ve been given the petrol AMT variant. To be honest, I haven’t been able to drive the Dzire all that much this month, but, every time I got to drive the car, its phenomenal ride quality continues to amaze me. I had diesel variant earlier and its refinement levels were amazing, but now with the petrol it’s even quieter than before. I wish the gearbox wasn’t jerky when I drive spiritedly though.
That said, it doesn’t matter what kind of road surface I am driving on, or the traffic conditions, because the ride is always super smooth.
Even the handling continues to impress me. The Dzire serves its purpose to perfection. It’s a fantastic city car, and it performs incredibly well on long trips too. The cabin is really comfortable, the air-conditioning works splendidly, and it’s got plenty of new age features. The Dzire also looks great for such a practical car, which makes it the most complete sedan.
The only thing that I have a serious problem – even in this AMT version – is the brakes, because there have been a few occasions when hard braking was required and they didn’t really do a good job. But, of course I was driving at high speeds. In normal driving conditions they do a decent job.
