New Maruti Dzire Review
The third generation Dzire not only received cosmetic and mechanical changes, but the company also dropped the ‘Swift’ badge from its nameplate. Built on Suzuki’s lightweight HEARTECT underpinnings, it gets new design as well as styling elements. While it weighs up to 105kg lighter than the predecessor, the new Dzire sees significant increase in fuel economy.
Most of the changes on the subcompact sedan have been made to the front as it gets a new grille with a bold chrome surround, projector headlamps with LED DRLs and a redesigned bumper. With these changes, the car looks more upmarket from outside. Insides too receive prominent changes and Maruti has added new tech such as the touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. Safety bits like dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, brake assist and ISOFIX child seat mounts as standard across carline.
