New Maruti Dzire 2017 Exteriors
The new Dzire continues to be inspired from the new-gen Swift that has already been revealed in international markets. However, Maruti has made some major tweaks to differentiate the two cars. These include a new broader front grille with chrome lining, a revised front bumper, new A-pillar, and larger rear doors. The tail gets a vertically raked bootlid, while the windscreen slopes in smoothly to give the car a complete sedan look, a departure from the wedge-type shape of the earlier model.
It comes with projector headlamps at the front with LED DRLs. The headlamps are much larger than the ones found on the outgoing models, while the DRLs have been given a U-shape layout to form a cup-like structure. The taillights too get LED light guides that appear to be slightly elongated versions of the bull horn shaped elements found in the taillights of the Vitara Brezza. The side profile is now a lot more proportionate, while the wheel wells have been adequately filled.

The rear bench gets an independent AC vent, a new centre armrest with two cup holders, and an increased kneeroom.
