There are high chances that the new Dzire could even get the 1.0 L Boosterjet at a later stage. However, we don’t see the introduction of the engine happening anytime soon.

New 2017 Maruti Dzire vs Old Model Design Comparison
Much like the earlier generation, the new Dzire borrows much of its design from the 2017 Maruti Swift. However, this time around, Maruti has done enough to conceal any similarity in the way the two cars look. The front fascia has been given an altogether different bumper and enough chrome garnishing around the grille. The rear is, of course, brand new. In our belief, the new 2017 Swift Dzire’s design looks more cohesive than the old model Dzire. The new Dzire looks more premium thanks to bits like projector headlamp, LED DRLs, LED taillamps and stylish new alloy wheels.
