Maruti Swift Dzire in India – Review
Maruti Suzuki Dzire in India
The Maruti Suzuki Dzire review presented by starredreviews.com
The notchback Swift is just 40cm longer than the hatch, and is mostly the same car. But converting something conceived as a hatch into a three-box always poses a styling dilemma, and Maruti have not been able to make it smart looking. But what they have done is make a very practical saloon.
The Dzire inherits both the 1.3-litre petrol and the fabulous 1.3-litre DDi multuet diesel from the Swift, which means it packs a decent punch. Just that when ferrying five people and their luggage, the petrol struggles, whereas the diesel still delights. Dynamically too, the Dzire acquits itself well.
The price quoted according to the official website of the maruti dzire at Delhi is as follows
MARUTI SWIFT DZIRE LDI BS IV 5.85 Lakhs

Maruti Swift DZire 2011 is essentially a rework and rebranding of the older Suzuki Esteem. The Suzuki esteem was a popular brand name prior to year 2000. The Swift itself comes in diesel as well as the petrol versions.
On the down side the Swift Dzire comes only with Manual transmission and no Automatic Transmission is available. How will this compete with cars of the same range ( Like Hyundai i10 in India) , that comes with automatic transmission – remains to be seen. More and more new buyers in India are looking towards the cars that come with Automatic Transmission systems and Swift Dzire will have tough time convincing the buyers who ask for the Automatic transmission version.
Indian Car market has become extremely competitive as well as attractive for the car manufacturers who are looking to increase their sales.
