Gets a rear power socket in addition to previously reported features.
Seen here are detailed images of the 2015 Maruti Dzire facelift in the mid-level VDi trim. Reportedly, the Dzire facelift is priced between INR 5.07 – 6.8 lakhs for the petrol variants and between INR 5.99 – 7.81 lakhs for the diesel variants, ex-Showroom, New Delhi. A formal price announcement is expected anytime now.
Designers have opted for a thick chrome grille, smoked headlight clusters and a new front bumper with chrome enclosures for the foglights. The VDi/VXi variants come with full wheel covers of a different design, and new alloy wheels are expected for the top-end ZXi/ZDi variants.
Also seen is a new rear bumper which gets rid of the centrally-placed foglight. Finally, Maruti plans on introducing more colors for the sedan, with this particular car (what looks like Maruti’s version of Honda’s Urban Titanium) showing one of the new schemes.
Inside, these images confirm that even the VXi/VDi variants of the Dzire facelift get power folding wing mirrors. Also seen is a power socket at the rear. The top-end variants are expected to come with keyless entry and a push button start, and a Bluetooth-enabled music system, like the Swift refresh from last year.
Though the Maruti Swift Dzire facelift will continue with the same 1.2-liter petrol and 1.3-liter diesel engine, the compact sedan could see an improvement in fuel efficiency, much like the Swift facelift, which scored a 10 percent improvement through changes in the lubricant and the injection system.
