As we said, the new 2017 Maruti Dzire has been launched ahead of the all-new Swift. Maruti has constantly been selling more units of the Dzire than the Swift. Being the more popular model, the compact sedan derivative has been launched much before the new Swift hatchback. The new Dzire gets more features and offers a higher average mileage. Later on, it just might also get the 1.0 L Turbocharged Boosterjet engine.
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. Tata also launched the Zest before the Bolt. Maruti has adopted a similar strategy. This could be owing to the greater demand for entry-level sedans. Also, the older Dzire’s sales had taken a slight hit from the increasing popularity of some of its rivals.

The 2017 Maruti Dzire continues to draw power from the same set of engines that powers the outgoing model. However, these engines offer higher fuel mileage. Being lighter, the new Dzire petrol with the 1.2-litre engine returns 22 KMPL while the diesel variants with the 1.3-litre engine offer up to 28.4 KMPL respectively. Also, Maruti has ditched the 4-speed torque converter in favour of a more cost-effective 5-speed AMT for both petrol and diesel variants.
Speculations abound that the new 2017 Maruti Dzire could even get the Baleno RS’ 1.0-litre Boosterjet Turbo petrol engine. However, that might happen at a later stage. Also helping with boosting the average mileage and performance will be the new lightweight platform.

The next generation Dzire is more fuel efficient thanks to a lower kerb weight among other factors. Dzire diesel, according to ARAI testing figures, returns upwards of 28 KMPL making it the most fuel-efficient car on sale in India.

New 2017 Maruti Dzire Review – Exterior Design
The new Dzire too, shares in plenty with its hatchback sibling. The two cars are largely similar till about the B-pillar. The boot is a rather stubby unit in order to adhere to the sub 4-metre limit. The front fascia has a slightly different bumper and grille. However, overall, the new Dzire looks as modern as the 2017 Swift. The overall design looks more cohesive in comparison to the current model Dzire. The new Dzire features a projector headlamp setup, on the top variants. The taillights get LED detailing as standard, while the headlamps get LED DRLs on the top end trim.
We definitely like the way the design has evolved. While there’s nothing path-breaking here, the new Swift and Dzire will look more stylish and modern, whilst maintaining the distinctive Swift look.
