A hexagonal grille and sweptback headlamps give it an upmarket stance. Chrome has been used, but in a subtle way. “People want chrome, but we have toned down its usage. The interior gets a wood finish,” adds Raman. The new flat-bottom steering wheel is the most noticeable change inside the cabin, and the centre console gets a touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
While it remains a sub-four-metre sedan, Maruti has increased its width by 20mm and wheelbase by 40mm. This has led to 50mm more knee-room at the rear. Raman adds that, in India, people also use the Dzire as a chauffeur-driven car, so “improving the rear legroom was important.”
Likewise, the boot space has been increased by 60 litres. The Dzire petrol will now be available with an automated-manual transmission (AMT) option. Earlier, the AMT came only on the diesel, which will continue. Maruti also claims a lot of safety features have been introduced—it’ll be equipped with dual airbags, seatbelt with pre-tensioners, anti-lock braking system with EBD and Isofix child seat anchor points as standard.
However, the most important change is that the Dzire has separated itself from the Swift. “It is more streamlined, more sedan-like, more authentic,” adds Raman. “The brand Dzire has become so strong, it doesn’t need the moniker Swift. It has evolved from a Swift-with-a-boot to a full-fledged sedan.”Because my burning desire to win a contest, by the way car .I love suzuki cars. I love it.
