Dimension Review

  • The Dzire is longer than the Freestyle by 41mm.
  • The Freestyle is wider than the Dzire by 2mm.
  • The Freestyle is taller than the Dzire by 55mm.
  • The Freestyle has a longer wheelbase than the Dzire; by 40mm.
  • The Dzire has 121 litres more boot space than the Freestyle.
  • The Freestyle has 20mm more ground clearance than the Dzire.

The Freestyle has a toller body and higher ground clearance, which give it better road presence than the Dzire. The Freestyle also has an SUV-like ground clearance for a hatchback price. So, if you frequently drive on bad roads, then the Freestyle will serve you better. Unless you need the extra boot space to frequently carry luggage, the Freestyle will be a better choice considering the dimensions. In fact, if you want to carry large items, the Freestyle’s hatchback design will allow you to do so more easily as you can just fold the rear seats. The Dzire is a sedan, so, it can’t do that.
