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.

Q. Which one is better Swift or Swift dzire? Petrol or Diesel? Kindly Suggest.
  • It depends on you if you want small boot and small car for easy driving go for swift if you need a big one with enough boot space go for Dzire if its diesel more maintenance it's a bit pricey than petrol carand adds on more weight than a petrol carif its petrol less maintenance less cost than a diesel carless weight more power but you should afford petrolits expensive a bit than diesel
  • Performance of diesel car is always best. However swift or swift dzire is your choice. Both have same technical specifications. There are only two variations. First is the looks of car, as one is hatchback amd other is sedan. Other difference is stability at top speed. I have driven swift at a top speed of 175 while dzire upto 183. Dzire was little more stable.
  • Swift Dzire is better than Swift in case you are a regular to drive at high speeds & require more room for luggage. You will get nearly same fuel economy in Swift & Swift Dzire if habituated in keeping maximum speed below 80-85 KM/Hr. Swift is appearing me more decent than Swift Dzire & if you will be using this car for your own, go for Swift.....

Q. Which will be best to buy either Maruti Dzire VXI or ZXI
  • I would say that you can go for Zxi ABS ... because, ABS brakes are not standard for VXi... also you will get wider tyres with bigger alloys in Zxi... Climate control System and audio with tweeter with Zxi only... you will get projector type headlamps in Zxi... Rear Defroster on the windshield glass in Zxi only...
  • Zxi is a better choice. For extra Rs 70000 you get bigger tyres, automatic climate control, adjustable driver seat, steering mounted audio controls and better audio player. I own both ZDI and VDI. VDI is my second car. I still regret buying VDI for I miss the above extra goodies. So go for Zxi
  • It would depend on one`s budget. VXI is comparatively cheaper than ZXI model but would be available with certain additional featuresP.Gautampurkar, kota

Q. Which is better between Dzire and Baleno?
  • Comparing Baleno Zeta Vs Dezire zxi ( both lower than top model)Baleno is 40 thousand cheaper than Dezire and number of features more than dezire like UV window glass, precision cut 16 inches alloy wheel(dezire 15 inches.), projector ligh(normal light), DRL, Telescopic steering, back looking glass electronically operated for night journey, big and better display and many more.Size, width and lengthwise almost same , than why Suzuki not providing all the features in same Dezire.In my view Baleno is the best option.
  • It depends which variant you are trying to buy. Dzire has somewhat better stability than Baleno due to added boot. But Baleno has advantage of a hatchback where rear seat can be folded and you have a bigger boot. Apart from this Dzire has AMT and Baleno has proper automatic. Also variant to variant, Baleno has slight advantage with better featues, tyres etc. But build quality wise , both are tin cans. It all depends on you want sedan or premium hatch and also the variant you are looking to buy.
  • 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.

    For the starter, Lets start with the pros - great styling and interiors.It looks modern when you seat in the car.- space in front and back seat is very good and with armrest in back seat adds to more comfort.It also has rear ac.- very silent, Reliable and fuel efficient engine which also contributes to extremely low nvh levels in car.- very easy to drive and offers good ride quality be it on city roads or bad roads- driver seat height adjuster is very good features and lets you adjust perfect driving position- steering mounted controls it helps you control music system as well as answer calls with ease.- last but not the least, Maruti have largest network of service centers and getting any spares in part of country is not a hassle.- offers platinum extended warranty for extra cost for 100000 or 5yrs which ever is earlier.Now the cons:1.Poor build quality, In terms of sheet metal used is very thin and may be safety issue.The metal sheet seems very flimsy.2.Beige flooring which is really difficult to maintain.3.Storage box in the dashboard is comparatively small and is not cooled.4.Stock head lamps could have been brighter.It is ok for city conditions but on highways you will feel the need to upgrade with brighter and better bulbs.5.Rear ac does not have enough throw.

    I own my swift dzire for around 4 years now till now this car hasn't caused me any trouble regard to its engine and suspension. it has also completed more that 2 lakh kilometres as it being used by our touring company.maintenance cost is low parts are available easily their is no problem with mileage it does 20-23 kmpl. even after 4 years it's 4 cylinder engine is quite cherpy and agressive. if you want to be the first one to go after the signal turns green this would definitely help you. it's also got a good storage capacity that can hold upto 2 big suitcases and 3 small suitcases easily. it does lack into modern day features but during that time with that price point it was a awesome car to own.

    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..... :)

  • 5.0

    I use WRV for my long tours and use my swift diesel for daily commute. I must say the I-VTEC engine is one of the best petrol engine i have ever driven. Some people said the power is not enough which made me skeptic about buying it at first, but in my opinion that is just prejudice . The power is more than enough. TATA nexon gives more power but in the long run TATA Nexon engines will have lesser life because Honda keeps it cool without stressing the hardware.

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?
