Over 95,000 Units Of The New Maruti Suzuki Dzire Sold In Less Than 5 Months


The Maruti Suzuki Dzire is undoubtedly one of the best-selling cars in the Indian market right now. Early this year in May, the carmaker launched the new-gen Dzire in the country which has further increased the numbers for the company. It’s been just about 5 months since the launch of the car, and the company has already retailed over 95,000 units of the new Maruti Suzuki Dzire. In fact, thanks to the festive season, the sales of the new Dzire has increased three folds compare to the month it was launched and in the last two months alone the company sold over 60,000 units of the car in India. Waiting period of the car has gone up to 3 month.

The new-gen Maruti Suzuki Dzire is the nicest looking Dzire launched by the company since the nameplate was first introduced in 2008. The new model is based on the carmaker’s new HEARTEC design philosophy and looks a lot sleeker and well-designed. Courtesy of the new platform, the new Dzire has also been able to shed about 105 kg compared to its predecessor and at the same time, it has also become more rigid.

Visually, the new Dzire shares its styling cues with the next-gen Maruti Suzuki Swift hatchback, which is evident from the new front end. The new grille with chrome surrounds, projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights, and the new bumper vastly changes the look of the car, adding a lot of premiumness. The feature list is also pretty impressive with offerings like – touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and MirrorLink supports and more. On the safety front, the car comes with dual airbags, ABS with EBD, brake assist and ISOFIX child seat mounts as standard across its trim levels.

Under the hood, the Maruti Suzuki Dzire gets the 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine and the 1.3-litre DDiS diesel motor. The petrol unit makes about 82 bhp and develops 113 Nm of peak torque, while the oil burner makes 74 bhp and 190 Nm of peak torque. Now, both the versions come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and an optional Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) variant.
