When Maruti launched the second generation Dzire in 2012, the outgoing model was rebranded as ‘Dzire Tour’ for sale in the taxi market. With the launch of the new generation Dzire scheduled for May, Maruti will adopt an identical strategy for the outgoing car. According to reports, the new Maruti Dzire Tour 2017 is already on sale priced at Rs. 5.24 lakh for the petrol variant and Rs. 5.99 lakh for the diesel. The Dzire Tour is essentially a stripped down version of the second generation Dzire with only basic features such as manual aircon and front power windows.
