Suzuki has enhanced its compact sedan offering. See what's been changed, plus detailed specs and pricing for the Suzuki Dzire.
The sedan based on the popular Swift hatchback has been given a mild nip and tuck, seen an increase in standard features and safety equipment and here's the best part, the price hasn't changed.
Visually, there's a new-look grille and front bumper, which is available in silver in GA trim, or chrome in GL models. There are new colours to choose from, while the GL model receives new 15-inch alloy wheels which replace the steelies.
Inside, there's a new upholstery, and standard spec is good. All Dzire models, for instance, offer electric windows, power steering, an immobiliser and alarm system, air conditioning and remote central locking as standard, but the GL model gains additional chrome styling, front fog lights, a radio with aux/Bluetooth/USB connectivity. There are also adjustable rear air vents with an extra 12V power socket.
ESP has been added across the range, and standard safety kit includes 2 airbags and anti-lock brakes with brake force distribution and emergency brake assistance.
Assembled on Suzuki's lightweight HEARTECT platform and powered by the 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine, the Dzire will be quite frugal to run. Suzuki claims 4.9 L/100 km on the combined testing cycle. In terms of engine outputs, there's 61 kW and 113 Nm, and a 5-speed manual gearbox is available. For those seeking a clutchless option, an automated manual is on its way.
