Thanks to new, lighter platform the 2017 Maruti Dzire is now more fuel efficient. In fact, the Dzire diesel is now the most fuel efficient car in the country thanks to ARAI figures of 28.4 KMPL.
Like the current model, the new Dzire will continue to rival the current flock of compact sedans on sale in India –
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.
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.
|Ground Clearance||163 mm|

The new Maruti Dzire 2017 employs a 1.2 L Petrol engine that makes 84 PS and 115 Nm. Diesel variants continue to draw power from the 1.3 L Fiat-sourced Multijet engine. Unlike the previous generation Dzire, the new one features a 5-speed AMT on both petrol and diesel variants. AMT is 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.
