New Look Maruti Swift Dzire

2017 Hyundai Xcent vs 2017 Maruti Dzire Design Comparison

The 2017 Xcent sports a new nose with the new ‘cascading’ type front grille. There are new fog lamp enclosures as well along with LED daytime running lamps. Major changes have been made to the tail as well. The 2017 Xcent gets new split tail lamps and a new rear bumper. The upcoming new model Maruti Dzire is based on the all-new Swift that was unveiled late last year. However, the nose of the Dzire gets a heavier dose of chrome. We also think the upcoming model looks more proportionate and hence, better than the outgoing Dzire.

Inside, the Xcent does not get any major changes except for the addition of the 7 inch touchscreen. It continues with the black beige interior combo. The cabin of the 2017 Dzire is all new. It sports a rather interesting flat bottom steering wheel with wood trim. It too gets a new 7inch touchscreen.
