All-new Maruti Swift Dzire to be unveiled to the media this evening
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
MSIL has confirmed the global debut of the model in May.
Maruti Suzuki will conduct an exclusive preview of the all new Maruti Swift Dzire today evening, so expect a flood of images, video and even a first look review of the 3rd gen Dzire from IndianAutosBlog.com.
The new Swift Dzire is expected to launch in India on May 25, ahead of which bookings are being accepted unofficially at Maruti dealerships. Recent spy shots of the sedan have completely revealed the exterior and interior of the car, which will not only borrow cues from the latest Suzuki Swift on sale in Europe and Japan but also feature few distinctive elements of its own. It will be based on Maruti’s new lightweight platform, so expect it to be significantly more fuel efficient.
Some of the exterior features include new LED headlamps with integrated DRLs, wide front grille with a chrome bezel, new alloy wheels, shark fin antenna, redesigned bumpers with chrome accents on the front unit and a moulded boot spoiler. The interior the 2017 Maruti Dzire has a dual tone beige and black colour combination with chrome, silver and faux wood trim materials, a restyled centre console, instrument binnacle, auto climate control buttons, leather-wrapped flat-bottomed steering wheel with buttons for audio and Bluetooth telephony (beside the horn pad), and a 7-inch Smartplay touchscreen.
Maruti is yet to confirm the engine options, but we reckon that it will include a 1.3L DDiS 190 4-cyl diesel engine paired with a 5-speed manual or 5-speed AGS (AMT), as well as a 1.2L 4-cyl K12B petrol engine paired with a 5-speed manual.
