What an ugly car! Don't waste your money on cheap models like this. It is not worth it. Ford Aspire is offering more value and better quality also.

Petrol engine is smooth. Mileage also is excellent, and features are too good. Only radiator grille is not looking very sleek and the design is awkward.
Dzire is good
It's having spacious boot, very good space and Maruti's after sales network is fantastic. It is the best and most trust worthy Indian company.
A great car. I had purchased new Dzire two months back. Extremely satisfied with quality inside. It's having a light body I feel, like Swift. If in case of accident, I think it will be damaged severely. LED DRLs are stylish, but the chrome usage is too much. Unlike other Indians, I don't like chrome.
Diesel engine needs improvement
The diesel Dzire is no doubt a very good car for those who have a strict fuel budget, as the car is very economical. However, every once in a while, when I feel like going for an all-out drive, the Dzire does not satisfy the feeling. I am not sure how the petrol model performs but the diesel engine can certainly do with better tuning and if possible, more power.
Suspension is excellent
Driving long journeys in the new Dzire is such a pleasant experience, mostly due to the excellent suspension setup the car comes with. It is soft enough to absorb nearly every kind of bump and yet it is stable during high-speed driving. Very happy with my new car.
Nice curved body, LED and projector lights with the true-blue Maruti promise of reliability and convenience features, the Dzire is a very good car for both individual and family use. It looks very smart, sophisticated and very different from the previous car. A good job overall.
Very good mileage
I am using the petrol model of the new Dzire and it has reduced my fuel expenses a lot. Even with the AC on at all times and start-stop driving, my car easily gives me a mileage of 16-17 kmpl. Can’t praise Maruti enough for cars like this.
AMT options in both petrol and diesel
Very few cars in India come with automatic options in both petrol and diesel variants. Most cars offer AMT in petrol options only. So, naturally, the Dzire is a great option for those who enjoy the performance of a diesel engine but also want the convenience of an automatic.
Steering continues to be a disappointment
Everyone who has used a Maruti car in the past knows they are not renowned for their steering. Sadly, after so many revisions and updates, the Dzire still suffers from the same flaw. On the outside, the steering quality is top notch but the functionality is still numb and spongy. Makes its difficult to judge how the car will behave in a sudden, speedy manoeuvre.
My car was driven only 17,000 kms when one day the engine seized resulting in a grinding halt in the middle of the road. On taking the car to the workshop, they informed me that the reason behind it was a faulty vacuum mechanism which failed and as a result of which oil managed to leak out of the engine. However, this was a very rare case as only a handful of such cases were reported to the company over tens of years. My bad luck indeed but it has certainly shaken my faith in Maruti’s reliability.
Unexpected brake issues
I was travelling with my new Dzire on the highway when suddenly I heard a loud grinding noise. On inspection, I noticed that the brake pad was not in its original position and was grinding against the wheel hub. I had to get the car towed to the nearest workshop and they informed that it was a faulty brake calliper. Even though the part was replaced, it does not feel like new because now there is a constant screeching noise while applying brakes. Not sure what’s the reason behind it.
Much bigger and better than the old car
I have travelled a fair bit in the old Dzire and I can’t help but praise the new car’s achievements in terms of space and legroom. It is quite spacious for its size and even though it still looks compact from the outside, it’s a completely different story inside.
Plastic quality has not improved still
Same story as the earlier Maruti cars – Poor plastic quality in the cabin. If Maruti can give their cars such modern, peppy looks and add fancy features like projector lights also, why can’t they go all the way and give an interior matching the high levels of the exterior? I had very high hopes from the new Dzire but unfortunately, the car disappoints still.
Very fuel efficient
I drive the Dzire diesel automatic and in the city I am getting around 19km/l and I am satisfied. The gearbox is a bit jerky and slow, unlike the smooth DSG in my other Polo GT TSI. I opted for the Dzire because I needed something with space and would be comfortable for the rear passengers and the Dzire fulfilled that and delivers very good economy. I haven’t driven it on the highway as yet, so im not sure how much more efficient it is on the highway.
interior panels falling apart
The plastic quality overall in the Dzire is decent, but a couple of panels in my car have already come loose in just 4 months of ownership. The build quality is where Maruti needs to work on. But on the other hand, the car comes with so many features as I have the top of the line ZDi+ with android auto as well. The system works flawlessly, and the touchscreen is very bright and easy to use. I rarely have to take my eyes off the road. I just wish it came in black exterior colour.
Touchscreen is very easy
I currently own the top of the line Dzire diesel which comes with Maruti’s Smartplay infotainment touchscreen system. The system interface is very easy to use, but is a little slow and sometimes becomes difficult to see when there is glare. I use apple car play regularly with my iPhone, but sometimes even when the car is charging my phone via USB, the car does not recognise my phone and it does not show the CarPlay option automatically as it should. I have to turn the car off completely and re start the car. it works sometimes, but sometimes that also does not help. But overall, even with the voice command which is optimised for India, it is the best system by far in comparison to other manufacturers.
Value for money
The new Dzire is complete value for money, it has so much space inside and in the boot. The quality feels very luxurious and comes with so many features. The auto LED lights are very bright and powerful, works very well at nigh especially when there are no street lights. The seats are very comfortable for the front and rear passengers. Also the boot is of very spacious and is very helpful for long journeys but for long duration trips, its not ideal. Also the diesel engine is very efficient as I am getting 22km/l in mileage. I’m very satisfied with my purchase at the moment.
Go for manual
After driving 20,000kms with the new Dzire diesel AMT, I would not recommend the automatic to people who are looking for ease of use as the gearbox is not smooth as other AT options offered by Hyundai or Volkswagen. While overall the car is good, but the automatic gearbox does get frustrating as it is slow and jerky. Overtaking on the highway requires prior planning as the gearbox takes a while to respond and upshifts from third to fifth too quickly which is not good for acceleration. I have driven my friend’s manual version and is much easier to drive as the clutch pedal is also light.
