  • Great Fuel Efficiency With All 3 Powertrains

    Maruti Suzuki offer the Dzire with 3 drivetrain options — 1.2L normal petrol manual, 1.2L normal petrol AMT and the 1.2L normal petrol CNG. All engine options in the Dzire offer some of the best fuel efficiency figures in the segment, going as high as 24.12kmpl, along with great refinement and smooth performance.

  • Fairly Loaded Top Variant

    The top-spec Maruti Arena Dzire comes with impressive features like LED headlights, LED DRLs, push button start/stop with keyless entry, engine idle start/stop, rear AC vents, cruise control, steering-mounted controls, auto-folding ORVMs and machined alloy wheels.

  • Wide After-sales Support And Resale Value

    After-sales service is the backbone of Maruti Suzuki in India. The Dzire enjoys a reassuring after-sales network and its very easy to find a qualified technician for Maruti Suzuki cars even in remote locations. In addition to that, the Dzire, being a popular model, also enjoys higher resale value with minimal depreciation.

  • Widest In Its Segment With Wider Tyres As Well

    The Maruti Suzuki Dzire is the longest offering in the sub-4m compact sedan segment. With a width of 1735mm, it is considerably wider than the Honda Amaze and Tata Tigor. In addition to that, the Dzire also gets wider 185/65 R15 tyres in its higher variants whereas the rivals offer 175/65 R15 tyres.

  • No Diesel Or CNG-Automatic Available

    The Maruti Suzuki Dzire was one of the best-selling diesel cars in the Indian market. However, ever since BS6 emission norms came into effect, Maruti Suzuki pulled the plug on diesel engines in all their offerings. Moreover, the Dzire also misses out on a CNG automatic option, which is a sore miss. However, none of its CNG rivals, such as the Tigor CNG and Aura CNG, offer an automatic transmission either.

  • Missing Features

    The Maruti Suzuki Dzire is a fairly loaded sedan overall. However it misses out on some essential features like a front armrest, padding for the door armrests and adjustable rear headrests. We expect Maruti Suzuki to add the aforementioned features in the next-gen model, which is likely to arrive in 2024.

  • Lacks Exclusivity

    Given its reliability, high fuel efficiency and ease of maintenance, the Maruti Dzire is a preferred choice among cab aggregators. No matter how many premium features the Dzire comes with, it is hard to shed its image as the preferred choice among cab companies. Making things worse, the Dzire is a common sight on our roads, hence killing its exclusivity factor.

  • Cool Features Only With The Top Variant

    While Maruti Suzuki offer a good mix of features with all the variants. Some notable features of the Dzire’s top model are LED headlights, LED DRLs, machined alloy wheels, rear parking camera, automatic headlights, automatic wipers, auto AC, rear AC vents, rear armrest and cruise control.

  • Smallest Boot In The Class

    The Maruti Suzuki Dzire carries the smallest boot in the segment with a storage capacity of 378L. Its boot space is 42L smaller than the segment-leader Honda Amaze. Additionally, both the Hyundai Aura and Tata Tigor offer considerably more boot space. The lower boot space could be a deal breaker for some sedan buyers.
