Maruti has finally launched the new look Maruti Swift Dzire 2017. The latest iteration of Maruti’s popular compact sedan looks all set to repeat the success story of its previous two generations. Maruti insists the new Dzire was developed alongside the new Swift (2017 model), which means, unlike previous generations, the addition of the boot isn’t an ‘after-thought.’ The new Dzire was launched on May 16 with prices starting at Rs 5.45 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). There is already an 8 week waiting period for the new Dzire. Read on for full details on the price, specifications, mileage and features of the new look Maruti Swift Dzire 2017.
Ever since its launch in 2008, Maruti Suzuki has been able to sell over 13.8 lakh copies of the Dzire. The second-generation Dzire is the first Sub-4 metre compact sedan from Maruti and went on to achieve great success. However, the advent of fresher competition in the form of Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent, Ford Aspire and VW Ameo left a dent on the sales figures of the Dzire. Now, however, the new Dzire looks all set to reclaim its lost territory with an attractive price tag, high mileage, many new features and fresh looks.

The new look Maruti Swift Dzire 2017 gets the same engines as the outgoing model. This means while the petrol variants get an ultra-smooth 1.2 L K-Series petrol engine, the Diesel model comes with the tried-and-tested 1.3 L DDiS Diesel engine. Performance from these engines stand at par with the competition. A big change, however, is that the Petrol engine will no longer come with a 4-speed Automatic gearbox. Instead, both the Petrol and the Diesel engines will come with a 5-speed AMT. Thanks to a lower kerb weight, the new Dzire offers higher average mileage than before.
New Look Maruti Swift Dzire Mileage
The new look Dzire is more frugal than the outgoing model. The slight increase in the mileage us due to the lower kerb weight. Additionally, Maruti could have re-tuned the engines for improvement in mileage.

The new look Maruti Swift Dzire 2017 is on sale with the above colour options. The new 2017 Maruti Dzires possesses an entirely new look, which makes it look far more modern and attractive. Hence, we feel, the new Dzire is capable of pulling off all the above paint colour options rather well.
New Look Maruti Swift Dzire Dimensions
The new look Dzire is wider than the outgoing model (1735 mm vs 1695 mm). This should make the new car considerably more spacious. Also, while the length of the Dzire remains the same, the new model 2017 Swift Dzire benefits from a longer wheelbase. Finally, the new model Dzire is lower than the outgoing model (1515 mm vs 1555 mm). Maruti is yet to reveal the ground clearance but we think there won’t be a significant change.
New Look Maruti Swift Dzire Review – Exterior Design
Unlike its predecessors, the new generation Maruti Dzire doesn’t look much like the corresponding generation of the Swift. While the two cars still share in plenty, the new Dzire manages to still have its own distinct identity. Up front you get a nose that doesn’t look much like that of the new generation Swift. It gets a different bumper and grille. There’s enough chrome to make the car look upmarket. Even in side profile, there’s enough to catch your attention. The silhouette is all-new and even the A pillars are different. The rear is also completely new. The boot continues to look rather stubby, but the new LED taillamps look very upmarket. The headlamps, on the other hand, come with LED projectors and DRLs.
We do love the way the design has evolved True, there’s nothing ground-breaking with the way the new Dzire looks, but we are happy there’s little similarity with the new look Swift.
New Look Maruti Swift Dzire Interior Review
Even on the inside, the new Dzire doesn’t look much like the new Swift. Compared to the new Swift, the new Dzire’s dashboard is a lot different. While the Swift’s cabin gets an all-black treatment, the new Dzire’s interior gets a beige-black theme. Also, compared to the round aircon vents on the new Swift, the new Dzire’s cabin gets trapezoidal AC vents. Our favorite bit is the flat-bottom steering wheel, which infuses a touch of sportiness with the cabin.
Thanks to a longer wheelbase and wider track, the new Dzire’s interior is a lot more spacious now. This will be helpful while having 5 occupants over long journeys. Also, the new look Dzire’s interior gets many more features. The highlight here is the touchscreen AVN unit that supports Android Auto, Apple Car Play and Mirror Link.
New Look Maruti Swift Dzire 2017 – Engine and Transmission
The new model 2017 Maruti Dzire gets its engines from the outgoing model. This means the new car comes with a 1.2 L and 1.3 L Diesel engines. Performance figures remain the same but in all likelihood, the new engines will offer a higher mileage. A big change comes from the fact that the petrol engine no longer gets the 4-speed Automatic Gearbox. Instead, both the Petrol and the Diesel engines get the option of a 5-speed AMT.
This should translate into a competitive price for the Automatic models. Thanks to the introduction of the AMT, the price difference between the manual and the automatic models of the new look Dzire won’t be much. Also, another advantage of AMTs is that the fuel mileage doesn’t take a hit.
