Enough has already been reported on the next gen Maruti Swift (2017 model). The new model 2017 Maruti Swift will go on sale in early 2018 and is expected to repeat the success story of its earlier two generations. However, before Maruti launches the new Swift here, it is expected to introduce the all-new 2017 Maruti Dzire. The new Dzire, akin to all its predecessors, will be a sedan-derivative of the corresponding gen Swift. The new 2017 Maruti Dzire launch date will fall around October, 2017 and prices could start Rs. 5.50 Lakh. While Maruti is yet to make any official announcement, various spy images have already revealed enough about the new model Dzire. Read on for all the details on the new 2017 Maruti Dzire Price, Launch Date, Specifications, Mileage, etc.
As we said, the new 2017 Maruti Dzire will be launched ahead of the all-new Swift. This will be done to fend off the fast increasing heat from rivals like the Hyundai Xcent. Meanwhile, the Swift has been doing pretty well on the sales charts. Hence, Maruti can probably afford to keep its focus on the new Dzire and launch the new Swift a bit later. The new Dzire will get more features and should offer a higher average mileage. It just might also get the upcoming 1.0 L Turbocharged Boosterjet engine.
New 2017 Maruti Swift Dzire Launch Date
|Expected Launch Date||October 2017|
While the 2017 Suzuki Swift will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, 2017, the new Dzire could make its India debut around October, 2017. We have enough reasons to believe that Maruti would quicken the development of the new Dzire to launch it a few months before it brings the new Swift here. Until now, we’ve seen the Swift’s sedan-derivative being launched only months after the donor hatchback’s introduction. However, we saw Ford launching Aspire ahead of bringing the new Figo here. Maruti is now expected to adopt a similar strategy. This could be owing to the growing demand for entry-level sedans. Also, the current Dzire’s sales have taken a slight hit from the increasing popularity of some of its rivals.
The new Dzire has already been spotted undergoing road tests in Gurgaon, Haryana. This further indicates that Maruti has been working overtime on the new Dzire’s development.
New 2017 Maruti Swift Dzire Price
|Price||Rs. 5.50-9.00 Lakh|
The new 2017 Maruti Dzire could be up to Rs 50,000 pricier than the current model. Currently, the Dzire range starts at roughly Rs. 5.25 lakh. The top-end model is priced at roughly Rs 8.5 lakh. The new 2017 Dzire range, however, could start at Rs. 5.50 lakh or whereabouts. However, this price hike will be justified by more features, higher fuel mileage and modern looks.
New 2017 Maruti Swift Dzire Specifications
|Engine Displacement||1.2 L K-Series Petrol||1.3 L DDiS Diesel|
|Power (est.)||87 PS||78 PS|
|Torque (est.)||115 Nm||190 Nm|
|Transmission||5-speed manual/5-speed AMT||5-speed Manual/5-speed AMT|
|Mileage (est.)||19 km/l||27 km/l|
The 2017 Maruti Dzire will continue to draw power from the current set of engines. However, these engines will probably get a re-tune to offer even higher fuel mileahe. Currently, these 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engines offer up to 19 KMPL and 27 KMPL respectively. Both the engines come mated to a 5-speed Manual Transmission. However, while the Diesel gets a 5-speed AMT, the Petrol unit gets a 4-speed torque-converter automatic. But both the models could get the 5-speed AMT for the next generation model.
Speculations abound that the new 2017 Maruti Dzire could even get the Baleno’s upcoming 1.0-litre Boosterjet Turbo petrol engine. This engine is about to make its debut on the Maruti Baleno. The new Swift 2017 could further get a micro-hybrid system to boost the fuel mileage. Also helping with boosting the average mileage and performance will be the new lightweight platform.
New Maruti Dzire 2017 Mileage
|Petrol||Upto 20 KMPL|
|Diesel||Upto 27 KMPL|
We are pretty sure that the next Dzire will be a bit more fuel efficient. The higher fuel mileage will be courtesy of a lighter platform and possibly a re-map along with a SHVS micro hybrid system.

The new Dzire too, will share in plenty with its hatchback sibling. The two cars will be largely similar till about the B-pillsar. The boot will be a rather stubby unit to adhere to the sub 4-metre limit. The front fascia will have a slightly different bumper and grille. However, overall, the new Dzire will look as modern and attractive as the 2017 Swift. The new Dzire will feature a projector headlamp setup, at least on the top variants.
