2017 Maruti Dzire unveiled ahead of May 16 launch

Maruti Suzuki has revealed the next-generation Dzire compact sedan. The new model is set to arrive in the market on May 16.

The third generation of Maruti’s bestseller looks pretty handsome in its new exterior. The wide, chrome lined grille is set to become Maruti’s brand identity. Bold new headlights with LED daytime running lights are also part of the new design language that has been adopted for the next-gen Swift and the Dzire in India. The Dzire does get a unique front bumper design though.

Inside, the Dzire gets a new dashboard and sporty three-spoke steering wheel. The dual-tone interior, faux wood trim with chrome accents and a touchscreen infotainment display certainly make it feel premium.

The 2017 Dzire will be available with a 1.2-liter 85 hp petrol engine and a 1.3-liter diesel Multijet making 75 hp. Prices for the new Dzire will start from around Rs 5.5 lakh and will be offered in four trim levels.
