Recommended Posts

Spied recently is the upcoming All new Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire 2017. 

Based on New Baleno hatchback platform, this all new Swift DZire to be more stylish, more wider, more spacious, lighter & better crash compliant with upcoming BNCAP crash safety norms guidelines. Body length is kept the same i.e Sub 4-metre for excise duty tax benefits & as per segment to which it belongs. Overall body profile from its side pics, indicates better more balanced looks with neatly integrated boot section & Tail-lamps area. Boot area capacity seems to be in the region of 330-380 litres.

Expected to be powered by same set of 1.2 K12M VVT Petrol & Fiat-sourced 1.3 litre DDiS Diesel engines, this car is expected to get better fuel efficiency figures along with possibly mild hybrid SHVS engine tech for better drivability & better fuel efficiency. 

Styling & equipment are also expected to get additional elements like Projector headlamps, LED Tail-lamps externally & Touchscreen Multimedia system, Cruise control system internally for its top end variants. 

AMT & Manual gearboxes are also expected to be same as being offered now. Fuel efficiency is going to be major boost, expectedly 24kmpl for Petrol & 26-27kmpl for Diesel.

Expect this car to hit Maruti Suzuki showrooms in FY 2017-2018(by mid-2017, I guess).

The DZire has come a long way! It took over Alto as well intermittently in monthly sales couple of times.

The new design looks a lot more grown up and surely is a big step forward! The rear of the car looks good (still stubby a bit - after all it's a compact sedan). The rear seems to have evolved in a positive way when compared to next-gen swift who's rear is a mix of Liva/DatsunGo in comparison to current Swift which appear more modern from rear. 

Of course front styling will be good as new Swift! Maruti is expected to carry forward features similar to Baleno and new Ignis including Android auto and Apple Car Play. (strangly only Ignis has android auto). Engines to remain same as well which is indeed a good thing! But as reports suggest after the recent price hike, the difference between Ignis and Baleno is approx 1 lakh variant to variant. And Ignis is expensive from current Swift. So pricing will indeed be tricky specially for Swift! 

 

Dzire on other hand will continue ruling the way it has been! There is no stopping for it!

Entry level prices are competitive! 

Top of the line seems costlier than Baleno. This clears Suzuki's strategy about Swift 's pricing as well. 

Swift will now definitely sit between Ignis and Baleno. Both cars have a gap of nearly 80k-1L variant to variant. 

Surprisingly, none of the models seems to affect suzuki's own portfolio. All models, Ignis, Baleno, Ciaz, Brezza and Dzire have a good long waiting period ranging from 3-6 months. This shows how strong the company has grown over years! 

Also this is the time when company has entry level prices low and top of the range costlier than the competition! Still it soars!
