The Dzire facelift is expected to get at least two new colors.

Maruti improved the Swift's fuel economy last year by tweaking the injection system, ECU mapping and switching the engine oil, and these measures are likely to be behind the Dzire's performance improvement.

The Dzire facelift also gets cosmetic and feature additions. These include new bumpers, wheel, grille, headlamp and body colours, as well as a push-button start, Bluetooth telephony, electrically folding mirrors, keyless entry and rear power socket (on the top-end 'Z' variants).
