Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

The Dzire 1.2 petrol is claimed to average 22 km/L.

According to info received by a Team-BHP member, the 2017 Maruti Dzire diesel will be capable of averaging a fuel mileage of 28.40 km/L which, if true, will become the most fuel-efficient mass-market car in India. The title is currently held by the Maruti Ciaz SHVS (28.09 km/L).

If true, the new Dzire will become the most fuel-efficient mass-market car in India.

One of the key factors attributing to its strong fuel efficiency figures is the new 5th gen lightweight HEARTECT platform derived from the Baleno, which has made it a whopping 105 kg lighter than the outgoing Swift Dzire, whilst not affecting structural rigidity. Thanks to the lightweight architecture, it’s now far more fuel efficient than the outgoing diesel variant’s 26.59 km/L figure. It continues to pack the 1.3L DDiS turbodiesel motor with 75 hp and 190 Nm of torque.

The 2017 Maruti Dzire petrol mileage is claimed to be 22 km/L, which is significantly more than the outgoing car’s 20.85 km/L figure. It also continues to pack the 1.2L K12B petrol motor producing 84 hp and 115 Nm of torque. Both variants can be had with a 5-speed manual or 5-speed AGS (AMT) and the mileage of the AMT variants don’t change from the respective manual variants.

The new Dzire will go on sale in India from May 16, 2017. Prices are expected to be INR 50k-70k higher than the outgoing car, which ranges between INR 5.35 Lakhs and INR 8.57 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). It will rival the Hyundai Xcent, Honda Amaze, Tata Tigor, Ford Aspire and VW Ameo.
