It is a VFM car though not at all a good looker. It carries the Fun to drive tag from the swift and is better than the Swift though same engine option. Nice features and the FE is around 12 in city and 16 on highway (overdrive source). It is a good option in entry level sedan.

my fathers official car is a swift dzire vxi

the interiors are cramped, rear bench cramps badly!

Leather seat quality is bad,the car is barely 5 months old, and the seats are torn!

the sound system isnt too good, and the rotary ac knobs rattle!

The shiny gear box has worn out and boot quality is worst in class!

Ac vents feel cheap and the plastic too!

Give a thud to the steering and its cover pops out!

Besides that even noise is bad and there is continuous rattling and creaking.

It's only done 200 kms!

What can you expect from suzuki??

Official ride means its driven by drivers who generally don't care about the vehicle because it isn't their own. The Dzire is a quality car. Petrol's performance is decent, but the diesel is actually the pick of the lot.

Even if a Merc is mauled and ill treated, it may show up. So its not the DZire's fault but the people who handle it. By far I think its among the best in its class.

And sparshq which leather are you talking about? Even the DZire ZDi does'nt offer leather upholstery as OE -its only very good quality fabric.

The dash and the switchgear is among the best in its class and so also the Nippon 4 speaker MP3/CD player.

i dont know, it is wearing off, the vxi version was bought by the travel agent for 5.65 lac l with leather seats as standard.

I'm not talking about the switchgear, its the metal disc on the top.

The rotary knobs rattle badly, and the slver coat knob for volume and power for music system is wearing off

I might not like the quality of sond because i have a better music system in my car

Looks like its the fault of the travel agent and not the car

sorry for critising it

Dzire = Swift mates Ambassador and SX4 does the 3rd partner's role..

Does not look good on road, does not beat the Swift either! Go for a Swift if you like it, else there are other good ones coming your way by the year end!

wow!!! the dzire gets criticized so badly around here!

probably you guys have the money to buy a better car, so please go ahead and buy the hondas and toyotas for a hefty premium!

See, you are welcome to criticize, point out flaws, but when you de-grade the car so badly that it makes the people waiting in the long queue look like fools!

everything apart, the dzire / or the swift as a matter of fact are pretty decent cars and are way better than the competitors--logan, indigo and ford ikons. yeah, the rear space is not great,so if you want great rear space you can go for the logan which looks pretty outdated.

I have driven over 11,000kms in my dzire and all i can say is that it is fantastic VFM and a very decent entry level car. you cannot expect honda / toyots level quality and at the same time you pay a lot lesser too.

You will enjoy the easy maintenance, a very decent re-sale value and more over the very fact that maruti vehicles can be serviced almost anywhere in india, almost! I have nothing against tata or hyundai either. tata has come with a brilliant vfm car--vista and only a longer duration of time can prove it..as for hyundai, they dont have a direct competitor to the swift..i10 is the next gen santro and costs a bit less whereas the i20, clearly is better then swift but much more expensive too.

Hi Sujith! I totally understand you defending the DZire! At the end of the day, it is what it is, as i always say.. "Dzire = Swift mates Ambassador and SX4 does the 3rd partner's role." It may be my point of view! when you look @ it you definately wont forget what i said!

Regarding people waiting in queues, its clever marketing!

I definately do not compare a Suzuki Dzire to Logan/Indigo/Ikon because i dont like any of these! I have made clear about my point of view regarding Dzire, Logan - Outdated design and too plasticky!!, Indigo - Indica with a ugly boot, Ikon - Good Drive, Pepped engine, Poor and Expensive Service .

When a customer is ready to buy a Decent Dzire after shelling 7Lakhs, Why not add another 1 or 2 and get a world class product with Hondas and Toyotas??

I am not against any brand but i know for a fact that Dzire for me is ugly.

Sorry buddy.. thats what it is :(

Hey i'm defending the swift and the dzire not because i own a dzire, but because I think the car is pretty good for what you pay. Ok yuo are talking about toyotas and hondas..the cheapest of honda is the city which costs a good 9lakhs for a petrol version! the debate is not about whether honda / toyota is better than a maruti suzuki..clearly toyotas and hnodas are better..but only if you have that spare 2 lakhs in your pocket! and both toyota and honda are yet to take the indian market seriously! in the c segment, diesel cars dominate, so even if one spends 2 lakhs extra, you will still not land up with a diesel toyota nor a honda! ok , the dzire does not look good..for a lot of people including me what matters is the purpose of the car! if i drive 35-40kms a day and if some one's budget is not beyond 7 lakhs, do you think there is any better diesel sedan in the market other than the dzire? add to this the reliability and A.S.S factors! the bulk of the sales come from c segment diesels, b segment hatchbacks and your hondas and toyotas are not even close to any of these segments!

Exactly my point Sujith! Its a cheap and ugly looking car!! I am not opposing the fact that it cost much much lesser than the Hondas and Toyotas! agreed, Its ASS is brilliant, agreed, If i have 7 lakhs with me, I would go for a Indica Vista QJ and save 1.5 lakh!!!(or even a Swift DDIS) I would not look for a boot which i hardly use is city traffic!! Its all in the mentality of a BIGG car for small money :)

Ending Point: I would only think of a Sedan if i could buy a Honda or a Toyota! nothing less.

lovemycar, well petrol dzire is a good car from maruti but it does lack on highways with lesser FE, else is a good package in that price bracket.Around 50km per day can also justify diesel option for you which DDiS from maruti in dzire and swift are superb to run and own,good FE and doesnot make one's ownership bad with latest diesel engine.CHEERS!!

Lovemycar i think you finalized on i20 before' date=' what happened, i think if you dont need boot should stick with i20 as its really good car and better than Dzire provided boot is not your priority..[/quote']

@love my car... dzire was launched in may 2008, so how many people would have driven over 40,000kms in a span of 9-10 months to experience the problems you have cited above? Having gone thru many of your posts, i think you lack the rational behind most of them.
