New Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire Coming Soon in India
New Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire 2017
Overall, the Swift and its hatchback counterpart, the DZire from Maruti Suzuki have been quite a popular choice among the car enthusiasts. Keeping in mind the fierce competition prevalent in the market, Maruti has decided to facelift the DZire(and Swift, too) and soon there will be an official announcement from the maker. The car is expected to launch anytime soon, ahead of the introduction of its hatchback version, new gen Swift. The Internet has gone frenzy with the spy shot images of the spotted testing model near the company’s R & D facility at Rohtak.
New Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire Exterior
Unlike the outgoing model, the DZire gets projector headlamps along with LED DRLs. Comparatively, the entire headlamp assembly is somewhat smaller in size than the previous version, which gives a bigger look to the bonnet with the widely spaced headlamps. The hexagonal grille gets a thick bold chrome border which highlights it pretty well. The chrome usage continues to the ornamented fog lamps too. Overall, the designing or styling appears very much sorted and discipline.
It’s tough to describe the car from other angles(with the limited amount of information at hand), but some features can be noticed like the blackened A, B and C pillars, electrically operated ORVMs with sleek blinkers integrated, body colored door handles. The A and C-pillars appear smooth and slanted and the headroom might be increased than the outgoing version. From the rear, there isn’t much to talk(because there isn’t much revealed too) but rumors have it that the maker might have included LED taillamps, integrate stop lamp(again, might be LED). The tailgate is also likely to get a design update. While the elevated rear bumper in the older version did make loading/Unloading luggage a cumbersome job, the newly designed rear seems to do the same job a little less cumbersome.
New Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire Interior
From what is spotted in the images, DZire gets interiors which are different from the Swift. DZire gets angular AC vents(unlike the Swift which features circular), a dual toned color combination with faux wood inserts. The 3-spoked thumb contoured steering wheel(with the steering mounted) gets flat bottom which is an unusual sight. The dashboard will also get Maruti’s Smart play touchscreen Infotainment system with compatibility for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Behind the wheel is a twin pod instrument cluster with an LCD screen between them. Nothing can be commented regarding the usual parameters viz. rear legroom, headroom, leather upholstery etc. till the official launch of the automobile.
New Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire Specification
As per the ‘news’, the New Maruti DZire is supposed to be based on the Baleno platform which will shed around 100 kgs of weight from the car. Most probably, DZire will feature the same 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder petrol unit and a 1.3-litre, 4-cylinder diesel powerplant. While a 5-speed manual gearbox will be standard with both these engine options, it wouldn’t be too much if we expect an automatic gearbox to be offered in some select variants. It wouldn’t be just to comment on the engine performance but a fuel efficiency of 17-20 kmpl for the petrol and 20-23 kmpl for the diesel engine can be expected.
New Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire Expected Price – Rs. 6.00 – 9.00* lakh
