Maruti Suzuki has just officially revealed the new Dzire in Delhi. Although the car uses the same engines as the outgoing model — a 1.3-litre Multijet diesel and a 1.2-litre petrol — the new Maruti Suzuki Dzire is based on an all-new platform. The design is inspired by the next-gen Suzuki Swift, which is coming to India in 2018. However, the Maruti Suzuki Dzire features significant changes once you get past the front end of the car. The interior is all-new too and, while the general layout resembles the new Swift, there are some differences between the two cars. Mechanically the difference between the outgoing model is that both, the petrol and diesel variants, can be optioned with a 5-speed AMT. In terms of safety, the 2017 Maruti Suzuki Dzire gets ABS, dual airbags and ISOFIX mounts as standard features on all variants of the car.
