Similar to the 2017 Maurti Swift hatchback, the new-generation Maruti Dzire might receive significant design upgrades. The front fascia could be revised with a large hexagonal grille, new headlamp clusters, re-designed bumpers, Baleno-inspired front fenders and wraparound taillights. However, the new model will retain its original shape and dimensions. The new Maruti Dzire is likely to share its platform with Baleno premium hatchback that will make it lighter, stiffer and safer than the current model.
Inside, the car will welcome you with a wide array of new comfort and safety features. The material quality, too, will be better than before. The compact sedan might appear with beige fabric seat upholstery, while the dashboard design will remain unchanged. There will be a touchscreen SmartPlay entertainment system along with automatic climate control, new steering wheel with mounted controls, twin pod instrument dials, new center console design with circular HVAC vents and several other comfort and connectivity features. All variants of the sedan could get dual airbags and ABS with EBD as standard safety equipment.
Though there is no clarity about the technical details of the new Maruti Swift Dzire 2017, we expect that the sedan will continue to be powered by the existing 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder K-Series petrol engine. This motor is capable of pushing out power worth 83.14bhp against 115Nm of torque. Speculations are on rife that the new-generation Swift Dzire might get Suzuki’s self-developed diesel engine boosted with SVHS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) mild-hybrid system.
The Maruti Dzire SHVS will deliver a mileage over 30kmpl that will make it India’s most fuel efficient car. However, it is yet to be seemed if Maruti Suzuki boasts its compact sedan with hybrid technology or not. For transmission duties, there will be a 5-speed manual gearbox. Maruti might also introduce an AMT or CVT gearbox on the compact sedan.
