Maruti Suzuki DZire Highlights
The third generation Maruti Suzuki DZire sees a significant change from the previous model. Firstly, Maruti has decided to drop the ‘Swift’ from the name, calling it just the DZire. The new generation DZire has now sits on the same platform as the Baleno hatchback. This allows the DZire to me significantly lighter in overall weight, thus leading to better fuel economy, and also a roomier cabin than before.
Due to the weight reduction the new DZire is now more fuel efficient than ever before. The 1.2-litre petrol powered car with the manual or the automatic gearbox returns a fuel efficiency of 22km/l. The diesel powered DZire returns 28.4km/l. Both the fuel economy figures are as claimed by the manufacturer and certified by ARAI.
The boot space of the DZire is rated at 378-litre capacity. The boot opening is designed to be large making it easier to load and unload luggage. The storage capacity can be extended by folding down the rear seats if required.
The DZire sits in a very competitive sub 4-metre sedan market and competes with the Hyundai Xcent, Ford Figo Aspire, Honda Amaze, Tata Zest and the Volkswagen Ameo. Despite the fierce competition, the DZire has been one of the best-selling cars in the market, and is the segment leader by a huge margin. This is mostly due to Maruti’s long lasting and reliability offered with a vast after sales and service base across the country, low ownership cost, and being a trusteed brand among Indian consumers. The biggest grouse, however, remains to be the high-set Maruti Suzuki Dzire price amongst the aggressively priced competitors.
The Maruti Suzuki DZire has been given a complete exterior styling makeover. At the front the top-spec Maruti Suzuki Dzire variants make do with LED projector headlamps with LED daytime running lamps, an all-new front bumper with a chrome embellishment around the fog lamp housing. It also has a new front grille with a chrome border. The rear bumper is also brand new and so are the LED tail lamps. The DZire is offered with either a choice of 165/80 R14 steel wheels, or 185/65 R15 alloy wheels, which on the top trim have a diamond cut design. Likes: Very upmarket look Dislikes: Nothing really.
The Maruti DZire new model is based on the Heartect platform and all new body which has been designed to be lightweight, and offer the most amount of cabin space as possible which can seat up to 5 passengers. The interior cabin of the DZire has an all new layout with a dual-tone colour scheme on the dashboard and door panels. The DZire now features a touchscreen Smartplay Infotainment System with Navigation and Voice Command with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, leather wrapped steering wheel, satin chrome accents on the console, gear lever and steering wheel. However, there are some hard plastics and the burl wood ornamentation on the steering wheel and dashboard is an acquired taste. Likes: Ample space, Equipment Dislikes: Use of hard plastics
The Maruti DZire comes loaded with features like a touchscreen Smartplay Infotainment System with Navigation and Voice Command which features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth connectivity, Navigation, rear parking sensors and camera, keyless entry, electric folding ORVMs, projector headlamps, ABS with EBD, dual airbags, automatic climate control and more. Likes: Loaded with equipment Dislikes: Nothing really
Engine Specifications & Performance
The Maruti DZire comes with two engine options. A 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that develops 81bhp of power @6,000 rpm and 113Nm of torque @ 4,200rpm. Due to the light weight of the overall car, the throttle response is linear and peppy. The 1.3-litre, 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine churns out 73bhp @ 4,000rpm with 190Nm of torque. This makes the engine feel punchy and helps in quick acceleration. Both engines come with 5-speed manual or an optional 5-speed automatic gearbox. The manual gearbox is very easy to use. However, the automatic AMT unit in the DZire is a little slow on the downshifts which is not ideal for highway runs. Also, the AMT demands a slight increase in the Maruti Suzuki Dzire on-road price in comparison to the manual. Likes: Light weight helps in acceleration Dislikes: Both engines lack power, AMT could be a little quicker.
The Maruti Suzuki DZire is based on an all new platform. The DZire has a kerb weight of just 895kgs for the petrol variant, and 990kgs for the diesel variant. Thus, being light weight has helped the DZire achieve ARAI certified mileage figures of 22km/l for the petrol engine and 28.4km/l for the diesel version. Likes: Extremely fuel-efficient Dislikes: Nothing really
Ride and Handling
The Maruti Suzuki DZire has a very comfortable ride as it features a McPherson Strut suspension at the front, and a torsion beam set up at the rear. However, the rear set up is a little stiff at slow speeds, but at higher speeds, it evens out the bumps very well. Likes: Decent body control, comfortable ride Dislikes: Rear suspension is a little stiff
