New Maruti Dzire: Unique Styling and Enhanced Features Over Swift

The third-generation Maruti Dzire, having been on the market for nearly seven years, is set to receive a generation update later this year based on the all-new Swift debuting next month. This compact sedan promises evolutionary styling updates, an upgraded interior featuring several segment-first features, and a new Z Series engine. Anticipated for launch in the second half of 2024, let’s delve deeper into what to expect from the all-new Dzire.

Distinct Styling

The Dzire, tailored specifically for the Indian market to fit the sub-4m category and benefit from small car tax incentives, will feature styling distinct from the Swift. Expect unique design elements including a completely redesigned rear end, distinct bumpers, alloy wheels, and potentially different headlamps. Maruti aims to differentiate the Dzire’s appearance with each new generation, ensuring a unique identity alongside shared sheet metal parts.

Enhanced Features

Drawing from the Swift’s dashboard architecture, which aligns with models like the Baleno and Fronx, the Dzire will inherit a familiar layout but with added features to set it apart from its hatchback counterpart. Spy shots suggest the inclusion of a segment-first single-pane sunroof, with potential additions like a 360-degree camera enhancing its appeal.

New Z Series Engine

The forthcoming Dzire will share its powertrain with the Swift, replacing the K Series 1.2-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine with the new Z Series 1.2-litre three-cylinder variant. Maruti will tailor this engine for Indian conditions, focusing on emissions, efficiency, and performance. Expect the continued availability of 5-speed manual and AMT gearboxes, with a factory-fitted CNG option planned for future inclusion.

Launch Timeline

Following the Swift’s imminent launch next month, Maruti Suzuki plans to unveil the Dzire within 3-6 months, potentially around the festive season. Positioned to compete with models like the Hyundai Aura and Tata Tigor, the Dzire’s comprehensive updates may result in a notable price increase reflecting its enhanced features and design.
