The new DZire with AGS delivers a fuel mileage of 26.59 Km/l, which is same as that of the manual transmission.
The AMT gearbox that is used in the Maruti Swift Dzire diesel AMT variant is a 5-speed unit manufactured by Magneti Marelli, much like its other AMT offerings. The car does not get any cosmetic upgrades apart from a badge on the boot.
It is being said that soon the SHVS technology, which is available on the Ertiga and the Ciaz, will be made standard across all the variants of the Dzire D. This move seems logical since all the three cars here utilize the same 1.3 Multijet diesel-engine and the manufacturer will not be needed to make significant modifications to accommodate the SHVS.
