After a reputative selling of the Swift Dzire Maruti finally decided to launch its third generation of Dzire on May 17, 2017 and even this generation too became the most selling vehicle of 2018. At first the Dzire was available with the DDiS (Direct Diesel Injection System) but now it is only being offered in the petrol variant. To continue further dive into this next blog of Review Series.
On the Point
The current Dzire is powered by a 1.2L 4-cylinder petrol motor producing a maximum power of 66kW@6000rpm with a torque of 113Nm@4400rpm. The transmission type supported is 8 speed AMT gear box.
For further specs, catch up the link below:
Starting with the front, the Dzire gets the projector headlamp setup bundled well with the LED DRL’s and also with the halogen indicators. The grille is placed a little below with the huge Suzuki logo as obvious. The bumpers contain the foglamps with the chrome finish.
The side designs are also well supported with front one and it does not at all looks like the extended version of its hatchback i.e. the Suzuki Swift. The sides really look nice due to the alloy wheels which the Swift exactly features and also due to the door handles which well suits on this mid-size sedan.
The rears look nice too with the LED lights again bundled with the halogen indicator and reverse parking lights. The looks are also enhanced by the chrome strip which runs across between both the lights. Moreover, there is no badging of ‘Maruti Suzuki’ at the rear other than its logo and of course the Dzire written over there.
On to the interiors, the dashboard comes in a dual tone finish and also along with the wooden accents in between. On to the driver’s side, the instrument cluster is all analog except the smaller display which is in the centre of the tachometer and the speedometer.
The steering wheel is leather wrapped and features the same wood accents just like the dashboard. Also, the audio controls and the controls for cruise controls are placed on the steering wheel. Dzire also features a touch infotainment display of which Maruti calls ‘Smart Play studio’ which supports connectivities such as Apple car play and Android Auto.
On the rear compartment the seats are comfortable with good legroom and kneeroom. However, the underthy support is decent and not the great. The Dzire do feature rear AC vents with the standard charging socket as well. The rear armrest is really nice with the twin cupholders. Moreover, the boot is also decent with the capacity of 378L.
While the Dzire sells the most but still it has some limitations too as:
- Engine Performance: As we all know Maruti is refining its engines day by day but many other car manufacturers especially the one which are in complete competition with Maruti Dzire are working on their acceleration. The Maruti Suzuki’s engines are nowadays super silent but are still offers less crunch in acceleration. Other manufacturers take an edge over by giving a crisp acceleration in their vehicles.
- Build Quality: Well, this limitation is actually with almost all Maruti vehicles. Although, Maruti claims that their vehicles are based on Heartect platform but still it can’t compete in safety with its competitors.
Atlast, with the concluding statement Dzire can be a better option in the segment if you don’t push the throttle off the limits and if you can compromise in safety a little bit. But believe me it could be a best buy if you are thinking about it.
