Cosmetically, the facelift Maruti Dzire gets some minor updates, including a refreshed front grille, a new alloy wheel design and a new front bumper. The rear-end receives even more minor changes. Notably, the sub-compact sedan is now available with two new exterior colours, Premium Silver and Phoenix Red, adding the total colour options to six.
The facelifted version comes equipped with a slew of new features, including cruise control, idle start/stop, and electric-folding ORVMs. Additionally, the existing 7.0-inch Smartplay infotainment system is updated with some new functions. A new dual-tone seat cover is available as well.
For AMT variants, the Maruti Dzire now comes with ESP and Hold Hill Assist features. Both these additions are can be viewed as substantial enhancements in terms of safety. Plus, the front and rear brakes are bigger in size, which allows strong braking.

In the post-BSVI era, Maruti Suzuki has decided to cut off the diesel range from its line-up. Accordingly, the 2020 Maruti Dzire also parts with the old 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine option. The facelift Maruti Dzire is available with just one engine, which is a BSVI-compliant K Series petrol engine delivering a top power of 90 PS and a peak torque of 113 Nm. It can be mated to either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 5-speed AMT. The ARAI fuel efficiency rating stands at 23.26 kmpl and 24.12 kmpl for the manual and AMT variants, respectively.
Recently, car showrooms and service shops have started to resume operations. Some of the Maruti Suzuki dealerships have also reopened after lockdown and are now operational under the new safety guidelines outlined by the Government. Maruti Suzuki is currently offering some lucrative discounts on the 2020 Dzire.
