Maruti Dzire, the country’s highest-selling sedan, has been launched with an updated styling package and a new petrol engine that delivers higher mileage and power

Maruti Dzire has been the highest-selling sedan in the country since time immemorial. The Swift-based compact sedan, which rivals the likes of Hyundai Aura and Honda Amaze, recently lost its diesel engine variant owing to the manufacturer’s decision to stop selling oil-burner-equipped vehicles in the BS6 era. However, in order to help the car maintain its popularity, it has now been equipped with a more potent engine and some styling tweaks.
