    What Are The Engine Specifications Of The 2020 Maruti Suzuki Dzire Facelift Hybrid Petrol?

    The 2020 Dzire petrol now gets the hybrid petrol engine, which was earlier available as an option with the Baleno for about Rs. 90,000. In the Dzire, this engine is now available as standard and for only a nominal price increase. This engine has 7PS more power and has 8 injectors in the engine - 2 per cylinder.

    In terms of fuel efficiency, the Dzire hybrid is 13.7% better than before with the automatic and 9.7% better in case of the manual transmission. This is a huge improvement over the older Dzire. The automatic variants claim to deliver 24.15kmpl while the manual transmission variants have an ARAI-certified figure of 23.26kmpl. The older Dzire had a fuel efficiency of 21.21kmpl with either of the two transmission options.

    With the hybrid engine, the Dzire now has better power output than the Aura 1.2 and Tigor and is on par with the Amaze. However, the Aura’s 1.0 turbo and Ford Aspire still handily beat the Dzire with 100PS and 96PS of power output, respectively.

    In terms of torque output, the Aura’s 1.0 turbo is an easy winner with its 172Nm of peak torque, which is available from as low as 1500rpm and stays strong till 4000rpm. The Dzire’s naturally-aspirated engine has 113Nm of peak torque at 4400rpm. However, because of the hybridization, the car’s off-peak torque should be better than before for low-speed drivability in the city.

    Thanks to the hybrid engine, the fuel efficiency figure of the Dzire is significantly better than any of its rivals.

    The features don’t quite justify the price difference but if you don’t want a basic Dzire and don’t want to stretch your budget, then this is worth considering.

For the price, this variant is also worth considering and it justifies the price gap over the VXI manual.

    2020 Maruti Suzuki Dzire Facelift Hybrid Petrol - ZXI Plus & ZXI Plus Automatic Variant

    The range-topping ZXI Plus manual variant costs Rs. 8.28 lakh with the manual transmission and Rs. 8.81 lakh with the automatic. That’s a price gap of Rs. 80,000 over the ZXI manual and ZXI automatic variant. The notable features of this variant are”

    • LED projector headlamps
    • LED DRLs
    • Reverse parking camera
    • Auto-folding outside mirrors
    • Cruise controls
    • Machined alloy wheels
    • Full-colour MID

    Not only doesn’t the ZXI Plus variant justify the Rs. 80,000 price gap over the ZXI variant, its feature list includes feel-good items, some of which can be easily installed after the purchase. The LED DRLs, LED projector headlamps and machined alloy wheels do have an allure. So style conscious buyers can choose to buy this variant but be warned that you’re paying more than you should for these features.

    Which Variant Of The 2020 Maruti Suzuki Dzire Facelift Hybrid Petrol Is The Best Value For Money?

    The LXI variant is a good starting point and in fact a better value than the VXI variant. Some of you may be turned off by its barebones nature. So,  if you can afford the VXI variant, you can go for it. If you want the Dzire with an automatic transmission and are on a budget, the VXI automatic is something worth considering. But if you can stretch, we’d suggest getting the ZXI variant, which offers the best bang for your buck according to our internal data. ZXI with the manual or automatic transmission is our top recommended variant.

    The ZXI Plus variant mostly adds feel-good features and that too not at a good price. Buy it if you want them but know that this is not a good value for money.
