New Maruti Swift Dzire launched at 5.07 Lakh INR
The Maruti Swift Dzire sedan received its much-needed makeover. The second best selling car in the country needed a change to compete with its rivals. All its competitors (Honda Amaze, Etios, Tata Zest, Hyundai Xcent) are newer models as compared to the Dzire, and they have much better features too. Maruti had been delaying the launch since a while, due to some reason or the other. Finally they went ahead with it, and the new version has been launched at a price tag of Rs 5.07 Lakh (ex-showroom).
On the outside, a lot of effort has been taken to make sure the Maruti Swift Dzire looks like it has been revamped. On the front end, first thing that meets your eyes is the new heavily cladded with chrome front grille. The bumper to has been redesigned. Large air vents and tinted headlamps give the car a major makeover compared to its predecessor. The side profile remains unchanged, at least to the naked eye. The alloy wheels of the car have been updated to 10 spoke 15-inch wheels. The rear bumper remains completely unchanged, and even loses a fog lamp!
The interior of the car is where most of the changes have been made. As you step in, you’d notice that the basic setup is identical to the previous model. Additional features have been added to help the car to hold its fort in its segment. Start-stop button, keyless entry, climate control, updated infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity, foldable seats etc. All these will help increase the value for money factor, and will help in increasing sales.
The engines doing duty on the Maruti Swift Dzire remain completely unchanged. Either a 1.2 liter K-series petrol engine, or a 1.3 liter diesel motor powers the car. The power from the engine is transferred to the wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox, or an auto box (which is only available on the VXi trim). The engines have proved their worthiness in the past, and there is no doubt about their performance.
Also, two new colours have been added to the already available existing pallet. The two new colors added are Eclair Brown and Maroon. Both are very exciting colors, and will definitely compliment the cars style dynamics. The new units have already been dispatched, and will be available at dealerships soon!
