New Maruti Dzire Facelift Vs Old Dzire – Why To Go For The New One?

New Maruti Dzire Facelift Vs Old Dzire – New Engine / Revised Prices / More Features / Styling Changes / Better Mileage Figures

Maruti Suzuki has launched the new Dzire Facelift in India, as a part of a mid-life update. There are a couple of changes that it gets when compared to the older Dzire. The last update that it received was the new generation Dzire, back in 2017.

So, what are all the changes that the new Dzire gets and should you be buying the new one or get the older one at more discounts? Here are the differences between both of them.

New Engine

Maruti Dzire Facelift does not get a new engine exactly, but the SHVS mild-hybrid technology. The tech first came on BS6 Baleno and now comes on the same 1.2 Litre K12B DualJet petrol engine on Dzire. As a result, the motor now produces 89 BHP and 113 Nm of peak torque, 7 BHP more than the previous one. That makes it more powerful.

Revised Prices

VariantsNew PriceOld Price
LxiRs 5.89 lakhRs 5.83 lakh
VxiRs 6.79 lakhRs 6.73 lakh
Vxi AGSRs 7.32 lakhRs 7.20 lakh
ZxiRs 7.48 lakhRs 7.32 lakh
Zxi AGSRs 8.01 lakhRs 7.79 lakh
Zxi+Rs 8.28 lakhRs 8.22 lakh
Zxi+ AGSRs 8.81 lakhRs 8.69 lakh

As you can see, the new Dzire is costlier by up to Rs 22,000 maximum, for the ZXI AGS variant. LXI, VXI and ZXI+ variants are costlier by just Rs 6,000. That does not make it much pricier than the pre-facelift version. But of course, the pre-facelift version will now be offered with discounts.

More Features

Maruti has equipped the new Dzire with features like auto-folding ORVMs, new SmartPlay Studio touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Cruise Control and a digital TFT screen for the MID. For the AGS variants, Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) and Hill Hold Assist come as standard fitment.

However, the base LXI variant loses out on rear AC Vents, day and night adjustable IRVM, central locking, rear power windows, anti-theft security system and speed-sensitive door locks. So, the safety of the base variant has been compromised with the facelift.

Styling Changes

On the outside, Maruti Dzire Facelift gets a new front grille, dual-tone alloy wheels, revised front and rear bumper and new fog lamp housing. Inside the cabin, there are no changes to the dashboard but the cabin gets a dual-tone shade with faux wood and gloss treatment. No major styling changes but yes, noticeable at first sight.

Better Mileage

Since it gets the mild-hybrid technology, Dzire now claims to offer 23.26kpl for the manual version and 24.12kpl for the AMT version. That’s nearly 2-3 kmpl more than the pre-facelift version. Also, you get the auto-start stop idle function which disengages the engine when idle for more than 10 seconds. That will also help up in saving fuel.
