All new Swift Dzire launched, shocking prices
Maruti have launched their new Swift Dzire starting at an ex-showroom price of Rs 4.79 lakh for the base LXI and Rs 7.09 lakh for the top end ZDI diesel. The new Dzire comes in seven variants with a segment first 4-speed petrol automatic variant also on offer.
The previous version of the Dzire will continue to be on sale but Maruti intends to rename it and sell it to fleet operators. The new Dzire borrows heavily from its hatchback cousin, the Swift â" both inside and outside. Maruti have altered the front grille, bumper and have also given the Dzire new alloy wheels and a stubby boot. The Dzire is now a sub 4-metre car and this time around, Maruti designers have ensured that the boot doesn't look as out of place as the previous version.
The 2012 Dzire comes with two tone interiors and gets wooden inserts on the dashboard. Like the Alto K10, Maruti engineers have made scoops behind the front seat, liberating a bit more room in the process. Powering the Dzire is a 1.2-litre K12A petrol and a 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and a 4-speed automatic as an option for the VXi petrol variant.
