The fuel efficiency is rated at 26.59 km/l for the diesel automatic variant.

The 5-speed automated manual transmission (AMT) is likely to be supplied by Magneti Marelli, and is paired to the 1.3-liter DDiS diesel engine in the Dzire ZDI variant, which produces 75 PS and 190 Nm of torque. The fuel efficiency is rated at 26.59 km/l for the diesel automatic variant, which is the same as that of the regular model with a manual gearbox.

Other than the inclusion of the AGS option, there are no feature upgrades reported. The ZDI trim will be equipped with 15 inch alloy wheels, electrically-adjustable and folding wing mirrors, ABS, EBD, dual front airbags, automatic climate control and a Bluetooth-enabled music system.
