About Maruti Dzire 2017-2020

The Dzire continues to sit on top of the compact sedan sales chart. In the month of May, it found a little over 24,000 homes. That’s more than all of its rivals, including the new Honda Amaze, put together. Not just that, it also holds the distinction of being the highest selling passenger vehicle in the country, overtaking hatchbacks such as the Alto and the Baleno by a comfortable margin. In its latest avatar, the Dzire has got a very sensible and proportioned design. Quality of the interiors has also taken a massive leave and Maruti should be credited for liberating more cabin space inside. In fact, 2017 Dzire is now one of the most spacious cars in its segment. Under the hood, Petrol Dzire is powered by 1.2-liter K-series engine making 83PS/113Nm while the diesel Dzire comes with 1.3-liter DDiS motor putting out 75PS along with 190 Nm of max torque. Both of these engine choices are available with 5-speed manual as well as automated manual transmission (AMT). With price ranging between Rs 5.43 lakh and Rs 9.39 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Dzire is getting competition from Tata Tigor, Hyundai Xcent, Honda Amaze and Toyota Etios among others.

Maruti Dzire 2017-2020 Overview

Maruti Suzuki has launched the facelifted Dzire sub-4m sedan in India at Rs 5.89 lakh (ex-showroom). It features a redesigned front fascia and is offered with a single engine option - the BS6-compliant 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine - all for a modest variant-wise price increase that ranges between Rs 6,000 to Rs 16,000. Feature highlights include a new 4.2-inch multi-information driver’s display and cruise control. The 2020 Dzire is available in two new colours - Premium Silver and Phoenix Red.

The Maruti Suzuki Dzire is the first compact sedan to comply with the BS6 emission norms and AIS 145 safety regulations. Only the Dzire 1.2-litre petrol gets the BS6 updates as diesel variants will face the axe post the implementation of the BS6 emission norms in April 2020. Apart from the emission updates, the Dzire also gets additional safety features like driver and co-driver seatbelt warning, a high speed alert and rear parking sensors as standard across all variants to make it compliant with the AIS 145 safety norms. The prices also have been bumped up and the petrol variants are now Rs 15,000 more expensive than before while the diesel variants have received a hike of around Rs 6,000.

  • Dzire don’t get any more polished than this. A spacious cabin, comfortable ride, feel-good features and a hassle-free ownership experience - the Dzire promises it all! On the other hand, the Honda Amaze makes a pretty serious case for itself as THE choice for customers in the compact sedan segment. It’s unique design, spacious interiors, premium features, excellent ride-and-handling qualities and, very importantly, the brilliant diesel engine coupled to the equally brilliant first-in-segment CVT, make it highly attractive. Honda has also promised a premium ownership experience without the costs involved.

  • Both the compact-sedans pack with 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder motor but, on paper, it is the Amaze that surges ahead with an additional power output of 7PS. The Dzire, on the other hand, has the upper hand with an additional 3Nm of torque. Both the vehicles receive an auto gearbox but the Amaze gets a more sophisticated CVT in comparison to the AMT on the Dzire. The claimed efficiency figures of the Dzire stand better than the Amaze and with its bigger fuel tank, it should have a longer range. In terms of space Dzire owns the the crown whereas, Amaze is more equipped with features as compare to Dzire. Picking one would depend on what kind of usage are you looking at? Primarily in the backseat? And more of city or highway? Petrol or diesel? Manual or Automatic? Click on the link to compare these cars: https://bit.ly/2Na5Uvs

Q. Which variant is good to buy in Dzire?
  • If you are travelling less than 50-60km a day, opt for a petrol car instead of a diesel. With the extra Rs 1-1.50 lakh spent on a diesel purchase, you can actually drive a similar petrol car for as many as two years! So, do your math carefully. A diesel usually makes sense if you are driving above 60/70km a day. Diesel swift delivers better mileage and better pick up power. On the other hand, Swift petrol has more smooth engine. We would suggest you to take a test drive in order to clear your all doubts. Click on the given link to get your nearest dealership details: https://www.zigwheels.com/dealers
  • It's depends upon the customer how much as a customer you r ready to spend thus since I have a vxi I would suggest you go for the vxi model as it has all the accessories we r looking for like power windows, power steering music system etc
  • If you want infotainment screen go with ZXI+else VXI and ZXI both are good and almost same.ZXI has reverse sensors and engine start stop button and VXI don't have only these 2 features

Q. Which is better between Dzire and Baleno?
  • Sir Both are same in their hearts.both are utilitarians Dezire is a compact sedan with an adequate boot . Baleno is a premium brand from Suzuki's nexa outlets.It can be more useful for daily commute within its premium interiors. So if you need boot space go for dezire.If you need a premium hatchback for daily commute with not so much to shope on weekends go for Baleno. Thanks.
  • Both the cars are of different segment and good enough. The Maruti Dzire sits at the top of the compact sedan segment quite comfortably. The new generation has improved by leaps and bounds, and is among your best bet if you’re looking for a compact sedan. On the other hand, if you want to buy the Baleno because everyone else is, go ahead. It truly is a well-rounded package. We’re glad ABS and dual airbags are standard no matter what variant you choose. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive in order to clear your all doubts.

  • Dzire is a compact sedan and Baleno is a hatchback. They do share a similar powertrain and it ultimately boils down to preference. I personally prefer the new Dzire over Baleno as I liked the ride quality better. Dzire is much more comfortable and spacious than Baleno.

    we bought the dzire in 2012 and it still have that shine⭐✨ because of it's naturally aspirated i-4, with VVT, which swirls out to post 6000rpm, which today's turbocharged car misses out. it's still comfy and easy to drive car. mileage is good enough, even when it is over 8 years old. my car have done 32000kms in odo, what it had lost is initial low end torque, and power (if we compare to today's cars). but I'm still happy with this beauty of an i-4 as it still have that symphony of VVT's 6k RPM..... :)

    Just an average city car.Good mileage.But after 3 years your car makes noise like something is loose in the car.Also after 2 years it"s 2 nd and reverse gear started to stuck.Also you don"t feel like you are driving a premium car.I mean for 10 lakhs.Just a car.In which you get good economy and resale.That is why it"s pretty famous.It is not a safe car too.I know I will face lot of criticism on safety but trust me other cars are much safer than it.

    This car has some undying charm with it. Never faced a single issue regarding handling/electricals/engine. Being used regularly on fairly rough roads but nothing ever gives in. Also have done some long tours, and every single time this companion has proved trustworthy. Really a well-balanced car overall between comfort, mileage and power. Satisfies occassional cravings for a spirited driving beautifully with its eager turbo.

    It"s the best affordable sedan for a middle class family with lots of space in the interior and boots too. But the problem with the company is that,they should make airbags and rear view camera compulsory with ABS as every body who wants swift dzire would automatically buy it.Now only top models are provided with airbags,ABS,and rear view camera..why the company makes it differ with its models in terms of accessories.

Maruti Dzire 2017-2020 Expert Reviews

Honda has spent a lot of time refining the Amaze’s package. Tweaking sound insulation, space and even adding in a new automatic transmission in a bid to gain some ground on the Dzire. Will the Dzire maintain its utter dominance or is the Amaze finally… Amazing?

October 25, 2018  By Team ZigWheels

The all-new Dzire is here and this time, instead of a hatch with a ‘boot job’, Maruti has designed it from the ground up to fit the segment and packed it full of features in a bid to decimate the competition. What better way to put those ambitions to the test than with a full blown multi-car compact sedan shootout.

Is the new Dzire a better balance of form and function than its predecessor?
