    Originally introduced in 2008 as more of a swift with a boot in the back, the car quickly gained the same image. The Dzire would receive regular updates along with the Swift. But things have changed, Maruti has decided to drop the ”Swift” moniker and the car has now stepped out of the shadow of the Swift and is now called the Maruti Suzuki Dzire.

    The Dzire has evolved into a farcry from its predecessor. The new car looks much more upmarket and premium than the outgoing model. This has been the most intense update the Dzire has received. Here are some major changes for the 2017 Dzire.

    Chassis

    Maruti Suzuki Dzire HEARTECT Platform ChassisThe chassis is based on a completely new HEARTECT platform which has helped the Dzire lose 105 kg. It has also become stronger and more impact resistant with Maruti Suzuki using high strength steel in the construction. Lower weight means the new car performs better, has superior handling and higher fuel efficiency.

    Exterior

    Maruti Suzuki Dzire Rear ExteriorThe Dzire is still a sub 4 metre car but this time around it does not look like they just took a boot and stuck it to the Swift’s rear. The design is much better and features LED tail lamps with light guides. There is also a tastefully slim chrome bar which runs the length between the two tail lights.

    Maruti Suzuki Dzire Exterior FrontMoving on to the front, the outline of the sweptback headlamps is more defined and they also incorporate LED DRLs and projector lens. The grille which used to be a chunky bar of chrome has been replaced by a trapezoidal slatted design with the Suzuki badge in the middle. The boring alloys featured on the previous model have been replaced by 15 inch diamond cut alloys which is a welcomed change.

    Maruti Suzuki Dzire Side Profile ExteriorThe side profile looks much different with the lower curved A pillar which makes the Dzire look much more like a sedan now than ever before. The C pillar also merges with the boot in a much more seamless and elegant manner.

    Interior

    Maruti Suzuki Dzire Interior FrontIn the cabin the Dzire continues the theme of improved styling and better materials being used. The steering wheel has become flat bottomed and chunkier than before which makes it feel much better than the one previously installed.

    Maruti Suzuki Dzire Interior Rear AC VentsThe rear passengers get dedicated AC vents which have been angled upwards for better air circulation.

    ABS, EBD, ISOFIX mounts and dual airbags come as standard throughout the range

    Maruti Suzuki Dzire Interior Touchscreen InfotainmentThe centre of the dash is where the touchscreen infotainment system lies. It is the same unit as the one in the Baleno with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. While the dash gets a dual tone treatment with wooden finishing, the rest of the car is beige all over giving the cabin a very airy feel.

    Maruti Suzuki Dzire Interior SpeedometerAs with everything else inside the cabin, the speedometer unit is also a giant step ahead from the outgoing one. It gets a chrome rings around the RPM and speed dials with a digital display packed neatly between the two.

    Maruti Suzuki Dzire Interior Full LengthThe car has grown wider by 20 mm and the wheelbase has also been increased by the same amount with the cabin gaining 50 mm overall. All of this size gain has resulted in the Dzire getting better shoulder and head room with increased leg room. The boot has also become more sizable by gathering 60 litres more in space.

     

    Performance & Mileage

    Maruti Suzuki Dzire Exterior Side Profile PerformanceThe only thing carried over from the older Dzire is the engine. However, another thing which is a first with this car is that for the first time Maruti Suzuki is offering a speed AGS (AMT basically) transmission on the Dzire and it is available with petrol as well as the diesel power unit. The 5 speed manual has been retained from the previous model.

    The Finale

    To close, its plain and simple, the all new 2017 Maruti Suzuki Dzire is the best Dzire and it brings a lot of first in class standard features in the sub 4 metre compact sedan segment. The car has finally gotten the update it always deserved and is definitely one of the best compact sedans(if not the best) available in the country.

    Maruti Suzuki Dzire OutlineThe new Dzire definitely comes with a certain flair and fluidity which was always missing on the older model.
