We have already reported about the 2017 Maruti Suzuki Swift in great detail. It has always been for sure that the next generation Swift will give birth to the all-new Dzire. However, the new Dzire will come to us much before the 2017 Swift makes it to India. The all-new Dzire, was unveiled on April 24. Maruti Dzire 2017 launch will take place on May 16, 2017. Details on the Dzire 2017 price and fuel efficiency are not available yet. However, you can read on for all that’s known about the new Maruti Dzire 2017 launch date and price.
New Maruti Dzire 2017 Launch in India
|New Maruti Dzire 2017 India Launch||May 16, 2017|
|New Maruti Dzire 2017 Booking Amount||Rs. 11,000|
The next generation Swift made its international debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017. Although India is a vital market for Suzuki, the new Swift will not arrive in showrooms until early 2018. While traditionally, the compact sedan derivative of a hatchback arrives a few months later, Maruti put the development of the new Dzire on the fast-track and will bring it to us before the new Swift. A reason for that could be the fact that the Dzire has been selling more than the Swift. Production of the new generation Dzire is already underway. Maruti Suzuki dealerships are currently accepting bookings for the Dzire for an amount of Rs. 11,000.
Maruti wouldn’t be the first manufacturer to launch the sedan before the hatchback. Ford adopted the same strategy for the Figo twins, launching the Aspire before the new Figo.

New Maruti Dzire 2017 Exterior Design
Much like the old Dzire, the new model is also similar in design to the Swift hatchback. However, despite the 4-metre restrictions, the designers have managed to get the proportions right. Based on the new images and what we saw at the unveil, the boot now seems to gel better with the overall design and the upcoming Dzire looks more proportionate in comparison to the current model. The nose of the new Dzire is not identical to the 2017 model Swift. It features a different bumper and grille design.
Maruti has thrown in features such as LED projector headlamps and LED daytime running lights. It also gets new LED tail lamps. Unlike the new generation Swift, the Dzire features a less upright A-pillar ensuring a profile better suited to sedans. The nose gets heavy chrome applique around the grille and bumpers. Overall, we see a more aggressive exterior design, which looks really nice, by compact sedan standards of course.
New Maruti Dzire 2017 Interior Design
The interiors of the next generation Dzire ARE NOT be identical to the 2017 Suzuki Swift’s interiors. The Dzire gets a different dashboard. Also, while the hatchback is expected to come with interiors draped in all black, the Dzire gets a black-beige colour scheme. Dzire also gets a centrally mounted touchscreen unit with trapezoidal AC vents positioned above. The climate control setup is also different from the new Swift. The centre console is angled towards the driver. There is a new twin-pod instrument console on offer as well. The sporty flat bottom steering wheel has also made it to the India spec model.
New Maruti Dzire 2017 Engine and Transmission
The new Maruti Dzire 2017 will employ a 1.2 L Petrol engine that makes 84 PS and 115 Nm. Diesel variants will continue to draw power from the 1.3 L Fiat-sourced Multijet engine. Unlike the previous generation Dzire, the new one will feature a 5-speed AMT on both petrol and diesel variants. The AMT will be available second trim onwards. Since the new Dzire is based on Suzuki’s HEARTEC platform, it is lighter than before, which should help increase fuel efficiency.
