Breaking – New Maruti Swift Dzire spied inside out!

Posted on: Jan 16, 2012 - 1:38pm IST

Indian Autos Blog reader Rajesh Dogra has captured images of the new Swift Dzire as it was being unloaded from its container in Jammu today. The new Dzire has already started marching towards dealer yards and the launch is expected to unfold in the weeks ahead or dare I say days ahead.

The interior of the new Dzire is laid out in the same manner as the Swift. Features such as steering-mounted audio controls, dual tone dashboard, five-speed manual transmission….to capsule it, the interior is a photocopy of the Swift’s!

Maruti has neatly differentiated the sedan from the hatch using a new grille, triangular fog lamp modules and unique wheel caps.

The spyshot provides answers to questions on the branding we raised this afternoon. Thankfully the new car will continue running under the same name.

We’ve already discussed the engine options in a previous post – 1.2-liter K Series petrol engine and 1.3-liter Fiat-sourced Multi-jet engine will stay on providing the motive force. The new Dzire is shorter compared to the current model, with length under four meters to take advantage of the excise benefits the government offers for cars that are under four meters long.

The Dzire nameplate is not very old (has existed only since Q1 2008) but the waiting periods are very long, especially for the diesel model. We’ll have to wait and see if Maruti offers more options on the powertrain front such as an AT option on the incoming car.

    Better then the current one at every corner, interior is much better then any Maruties next to Kizashi. But still can’t be able to digest the rear, although better then current Dezire, but… :/. By the way what is the boot capacity?
