Indian Autos Blog can report that the 2015 Maruti Dzire (facelift) will have its formal price announcement on February 25, 2015, although reports of leaked prices are circulating the internet. Deliveries are set to start immediately as Maruti has already commenced dealer dispatch.
Based on reports, the Dzire facelift is reported to be priced from INR 5.07 – 6.8 lakhs for the petrol variants and between INR 5.99 – 7.81 lakhs for the diesel variants, ex-Showroom, New Delhi.
Cosmetic changes on the Swift-based sedan are extensive compared the Swift facelift which was introduced in the last quarter of 2014. A new chrome grille, smoked headlight clusters, a new front bumper with chrome enclosures for the foglights, a new rear bumper without the foglight, and new alloy wheels patterns (or wheel covers in case of the lower variants) summarize the changes on the outside.
Dealers say that the Dzire facelift will be offered with 3 or 4 new color options, including a new Dark Gray shade, a Blue and a Red color.
Inside, the top-end ZXi/ZDi variants get keyless entry with push button start, electrically-adjustable and folding wing mirrors, a Bluetooth-enabled music system, steering-mounted buttons for answering/ending phone calls and a power socket at the rear.
The mechanical package of the Dzire facelift is not expected to see drastic changes. While the 1.2-liter petrol and 1.3-liter diesel will continue to be offered, they could see enhanced fuel efficiency thanks to changes in the injection system and lubricant.
