The Dzire facelift could sport fuel efficiency improvements as well.
Seen here are fresh spyshots of the 2015 Maruti Swift Dzire facelift, which is expected to begin selling at the end of this year or in early 2015. Maruti is unlikely to launch the refreshed Dzire urgently, as the market introduction of the new Alto K10 is planned for in the first week of November.
The Dzire facelift, in comparison to the Swift facelift that launched this week, gets a more comprehensive cosmetic upgrade. The front fascia sees a large chrome grille and an all-new bumper with redesigned airdam and chrome enclosures. While the design of the headlights are carried over, Maruti has given them a dark tint for a sportier look.
The side profile of the Dzire shows new 10-spoke alloy wheels, and the keyless access request button is seen on the door handle which confirms that the Dzire too will get this feature after the Swift. The car seen here sports a new blue shade, indicating that there would be new colors on offer, like the Swift. A tweaked rear bumper without the central stoplight would complete the external changes.
Inside, features like a push button start, Bluetooth enabled music system with steering controls, electrically adjustable and folding wing mirrors will be seen, given that the new Swift gets these features.
Using the Swift's 10 percent mileage improvement as basis, we can predict the same for the Dzire given that the cars share their engines and are nearly similar in weight (the Dzire is 20-25 kg heavier than the Swift).
