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.
The 2020 Maruti Dzire facelift comes with a revised front fascia, more features and a new engine with higher power output and fuel efficiency.
First things first, the 2020 Maruti Dzire comes with a revised front fascia that carries an Audi-inspired front grille and a revised bumper. Inside, the car gets a handful of new features, including cruise control, coloured TFT MID display and auto-folding ORVMs. The AGS-equipped automatic variants are now equipped with an electronic stability program with hill hold. In addition to the earlier colour options, the 2020 Dzire is available in two new shades- Premium Silver and Phoenix Red.
Powering the 2020 Maruti Dzire is the BS6 1.2-litre K-series Dual Jet, Dual VVT engine that comes idle start-stop function. The new engine produces a maximum power of 88HP and is available with two transmission options – 5-speed MT and 5-speed AMT (AGS in Maruti speak). Compared to the previous version, which offered an ARAI-rated mileage of 21.1 kmpl, the new motor offers 23.26 kmpl with manual transmission and 24.12 kmpl with thee AMT.
The 2020 Maruti Dzire is available in two new paint shades - Premium Silver and Phoenix Red.
Prices of the 2020 Maruti Dzire range between Rs 5,89,000* to Rs 8,28,000. While the manual transmission variant is available in 4 trims- LXi, VXi, ZXi and ZXi+, the AGS version misses out on the base grade. Prices of the AMT-equipped model start at Rs 7,31,500* and go all the way to Rs 8,80,500*.
