The new Maruti Dzire arrives a little over 5 years since the current gen was introduced.

The next gen Maruti Dzire features new LED headlamps with integrated DRLs, wide front grille with chrome outlining, new alloy wheels, shark fin antenna, redesigned bumpers with chrome accents on the front unit and a moulded boot spoiler. It is based on the 'HEARTECT' platform which will make it lighter and more fuel efficient than the outgoing car.

Inside, the 2017 Maruti Dzire has a dual tone beige and black interior colour combination with chrome, silver and faux wood trim materials, a restyled centre console, instrument binnacle, auto climate control buttons, rear AC vent, leather-wrapped flat-bottomed steering wheel with buttons for audio and bluetooth telephony (beside the horn pad), and a 7-inch Smartplay touchscreen.
