Maruti Dzire is the compact sedan based on the Swift hatchback and among the top-selling cars in India. In its latest 2017 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.
The Dzire doesn’t look like a hatchback with a boot slapped on anymore! That also explains why it has dropped the ‘Swift’ badge. It does share its nose with the upcoming hatchback, and the all-LED projector headlamps are identical too. But, that’s where the similarities end. The A-pillar is sharply raked and flows into the roof in one smooth curve. We like the new ‘precision-cut’ 15-inch alloys on the top-spec variant. They fill up the wheel wells nicely and give the Dzire a nice squat stance. The boot is well integrated and now features LED tail-lamps along with the usual dollop of chrome.

The good folks at Maruti Suzuki have fixed the Dzire’s long standing problem - space. There’s plenty of it, and the compact sedan is among the few in its class that can accommodate five adults. To make it a more premium product, Maruti has thrown in some faux wood accents that highlight the door pads, the dashboard, and the new flat-bottom steering wheel. Top-spec variants get a whole lot of features including a 7.0-inch touchscreen (with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and navigation), automatic climate control, rear air-conditioning and steering-mounted audio controls. On the safety front, dual airbags and anti-lock brakes are standard across the range.
While the engine options maybe identical to the outgoing version, Maruti has made them slightly easier to drive. For instance, the turbo lag on the diesel engine is controlled better than before. The petrol engine is as refined and fuel-efficient as ever. Both engines can be had with a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT.

You can choose between 14 variants of the Dzire, prices for which start at Rs 5.4 lakh and go all the way up to Rs 9.41 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Thankfully, Maruti hasn’t skimped on safety - so you get dual airbags and ABS as standard across the range. All factors considered, the mid-spec V and Z variants seem most bang for the buck. Of course, there’s the option of an automatic should you need it.

Hyundai Xcent: Based on the Grand i10 hatchback, this compact sedan combines space and practicality of a larger car with the reliability and low cost of ownership associated with the brand. The Xcent is not as spacious as the competition but has one of the better-built interiors. The Xcent does not get a diesel automatic variant, unlike the Ameo or the Dzire.

Honda Amaze: Honda’s workhorse is beginning to show its age. Despite the recent facelift, the Amaze fails to wow you. That said, it still is among the most accommodating cars you can buy in this segment.

Ford Aspire: The oldest car in this comparison, the Aspire remains the value buy in this segment for the space, performance and comfort it offers. The age does show through; the Aspire is the only car in the segment to not get a touchscreen, smartphone-compatible infotainment system. It leads the pack in terms of safety though, with features like 6-airbags and emergency assist system.

The Maruti Dzire sits at the top of the compact sedan segment quite comfortably. A whole lot has improved with the new generation, and this time around, it actually deserves the number one spot.
