Maruti Swift Dzire review

Overview


Introduction:

Maruti Swift Dzire has changed the perception of a conventional sedan and successfully created a new space for itself in the automobile segment. Although, Indigo CS was the first compact sedan, Swift Dzire is the one that tasted immense success in the sub 4-meter segment. Its success has challenged and encouraged many other automotive firms to work on compact sedans for Indian market. Despite tough competition, it is still the best-selling car in its league. Outstanding mileage, good package of features and wider service network are few reasons that contributed for Dzire’s immense success. Now let’s delve deep into the car and find out why it is among the most desired cars in India.


Pros:

1. Punchy diesel engine with reasonably good mileage figure.

2. Comfort features are at par with its rivals.


Cons:

1. Smaller boot capacity. There is no option to fold rear bench seat.

2. Waiting period for the diesel variants is too long.


Standout features:

1. Diesel version is now available with an AGS (Auto gear shift) gearbox option. It offers a clutch-free driving experience without compromise on fuel efficiency.

2. Maruti offers an excellent after-sales service with its vast service network.  


Background and Evolution:

Maruti Swift Dzire is a compact sedan, whose design is based on its sibling Swift. It was first introduced in India on 26th March 2008, as a replacement for the aging Maruti Esteem. This car received subtle changes in the year 2012, but there was no update in its generation. In the year 2015, it has undergone a major overhaul with respect to its style and features. Just recently, the manufacturer has rolled out the AGS version of Dzire that spurred up the competition in the market.  


Overview:

The new generation Swift Dzire is unquestionably the best compact sedan available today here in India. It is a car that stood up to the expectations of an average buyer in the country. It comes in a range of two engine options, the 1.3-litre DDiS diesel and 1.2-litre K Series petrol mill. For the first time in the sub 4-meter compact sedan segment, Swift Dzire comes with an AGS technology, a gearbox technology that makes driving more comfortable without compromise in mileage. The company is offering this vehicle in numerous trim levels such as L, V and Z. Here, features like dual front airbags and ABS with EBD are available as optional from the base variant itself. Also, the car is packed with tons of other features such as an AC unit, an advanced instrument panel, remote keyless entry, electric windows and so on.  


Exteriors:

Right from the body structure to the design touch ups, the Swift Dzire will just leave the buyers impressed at the first glance itself. It looks trendy, clean and it will surely attract the younger customers. This 2015 Dzire looks notably different from its predecessor, at least from its front facade. Much of the design and sculpture has been retained from its predecessor, but the build quality has been improved to an all new level. 

The design of the grille looks trendy and there is a wing shaped chrome strip affixed to it rendering a brand new look. The company's logo in the center of this grille compliments its overall new look.  

The headlight cluster gets the same old design, but with a blackened finish inside. This renders a more aggressive appeal to the frontage. It comes integrated with conventional halogen bulbs and turn indicators and no LED DRLs.

Another update to the front comes in the form of revamped front bumper. It gets a bigger air intake section. Also, the fog lamps console is now decorated with a chrome strip giving a classy touch to the facet.  

Much of the side profile of the Dzire remains the same like its predecessor. It retains the signature design elements including blackened A and B pillars.  

The only change that you can notice here is the newly design alloy wheels, which the company claims to be motion themed rims. They are 15 inches in size and are available as standard for the top-spec variants, while the base and mid range variants get conventional steel rims.  

We expected that the 2015 version would get a revised rear profile, but the company stuck to the same old design with abrupt boot structure. But that's okay; it won’t offend you in any manner.  

The only update that 2015 version received is a redesigned bumper with more muscle and a lower protection guard. This renders a comprehensive look to the facet.  

Its taillight cluster has just the right size that fits well into the overall design. It comes integrated with conventional halogen lamps and brake lights.  

Overall, the 2015 version of Swift Dzire gets away with minor tweaks to its exteriors and yet, it looks trendy, thanks to the improved build quality and finish.

This compact sedan has a length of just 3995mm, width of 1695mm and the overall height standing at 1555mm. The minimum ground clearance of the car is generous with 170mm and the wheelbase is 2430mm.


Interiors:

The 2015 Swift Dzire's interior design remains the same as its predecessor, but gets some new equipments and facilities on-board that boasts the comfort quotient of interiors. The manufacturer has installed functions including a push button start along with electrically foldable wing mirrors and a proficient smart key access. At the same time, it also added rear parking sensors and a six speaker sound system with Bluetooth connectivity as well.  

First and foremost update that it received in 2016 is the push button engine start. It is positioned strategically in the right corner of the dashboard.  

Another notable update that we can notice is that the dashboard gets wood inserts bringing a more up-market feel to the interiors. Apart from this, everything about the cabin has been retained from the previous version.  

The instrument panel has a conventional two-pod design with four analogue gauges. It provides vital stats including engine temperature, rpm levels, vehicle speed, fuel levels and other warning lamps. Also present is a digital display that comes with a trip computer and a digital clock.  

The steering wheel has a signature three-spoke design, which can also be seen in some other Maruti models. It comes mounted with illuminated multi-functional switches.  

The central console is packed with a standard audio system comprising a CD and a Radio player. It also comes integrated with Bluetooth and USB connectivity for seamless audio streaming.  

We felt that the space inside the cabin is adequate for a maximum of five passengers. The front seats are much more comfortable than the rear ones, as they are ergonomically designed. They have side bolsters that provide better support to the body.  

The rear bench seat is not as comfortable as the front individual seats. They have head restraints and a center armrest that adds to the convenient quotient.  

There are number of utility features provided inside the cabin including retractable cup holders, sun visors, a large glove box and much more.  


Performance:

The current generation Maruti Swift Dzire is available with two engine options.


Diesel:

The diesel versions of Swift Dzire are equipped with a critically acclaimed 1.3-litre DDiS oil-burner. This Fiat-sourced power plant is perhaps one of most efficient engines available here today. Although it has its own shortcomings, the engine has a power output that is lot more linear. It churns out a maximum power of 74bhp at 4000rpm and yields a mammoth torque of 190Nm at 2000rpm. As a result of the minor tweaks, this diesel version now comes with an ability to return a peak mileage of 26.59 kmpl, which is rather decent. This engine has good acceleration and it can reach a top speed of 165 Kmph. Until a speed of 110 kmph, the engine feels smooth and relaxed. It can also break the 100 kmph mark in just 14.85 seconds. The transmission duties for this motor are handed over to a five speed manual gearbox. Just recently, the company has added one more trim to the series that comes with an AGS transmission.  

/>


Petrol:

Petrol versions on the other hand are powered by a 1.2-litre K series motor that has a displacement capacity 1197cc. With this engine under the hood, Swift Dzire can zoom past 100 kmph mark in 12.6 seconds only. Performance of this motor is at par with the competition. It is a gem of an engine that delivers high torque output at low rpms making city driving far simpler. It has the ability to produce a power of 83.14bhp at 6000rpm and a high torque output of 115Nm at just 4000rpm. Like its diesel counterpart, this mill too gets some minor tweaks and its fuel efficiency has been improved to 20.85 kmpl. Petrol versions of Swift Dzire are available with a five speed manual and an automatic gearbox.  


Ride and handling:

This compact sedan comes with a comfort-oriented suspension set up featuring McPherson strut layout at the front and a torsion beam system at rear. It feels smooth and comfortable on roads and there are hardly any surprises. Its overall behaviour remains predictable, but the rear suspension feels a bit too soft. In terms of braking, this sedan gets ventilated discs for the front wheels and drum brakes for the rear wheels. Now, the car maker is offering the base trims with an option of integrated anti lock braking system and electronic brake force distribution. On the other hand, the electric power assisted steering is based on a conventional rack and pinion mechanism. Its response is quite good, especially at low speeds.  


Safety:

This compact sedan has a robust body structure made with high strength steel material ensuring safety for the passengers. Features like 3-point seat belts, rear door child locks, security alarm system and engine immobilizer have been given as standard across all the variants. You also get a speed sensitive automatic door lock facility as a standard. Just a few weeks back, the car maker has made changes to the variant line-up by offering ABS with EBD and dual front airbags as optional features for the base and mid-range variants. This has improved the overall safety quotient of the car.  


Variants:

The automaker is currently offering the Swift Dzire in three trim levels like L, V and Z. It would be wise to go with the base version since it has most important features on board along with an option to integrate ABS and EBD. However, if you are a music lover then you have to choose at least V grade trim to get a CD player and a radio unit. The base variants have been offered with features like electric power assisted steering with tilt function, front seat head restraints, manual air conditioning system, internally adjustable outside mirrors, remote back door opener and luggage lamps.

The mid range trims have additional features including electrically operated front windows with driver's side auto down function, central door locking function and remote keyless entry along with back door opening function. Besides these, they are also equipped with passenger's side vanity mirror, electrically adjustable and foldable outside mirrors, day/night inside rear view mirror, rear seat center armrest, rear door power window, automatic air conditioning system and front seat back pockets.  

On the other hand, its top-spec trims have advanced features like push button engine start function, multi-functional display with outside temperature, electromagnetic back door operation and rear power sockets. In addition to these, they also have elements such as steering mounted audio controls, driver's seat height adjuster and a rear window defogger that adds to the level of comfort.  


Verdict:

Maruti Swift Dzire has been the most successful compact sedan in its league claiming the leading spot year after year. Its reliable performance, durability and exceptional service network have contributed immensely to its huge success. There is no doubt in our mind to say that this sub 4-meter sedan is the best you can get in the compact sedan segment. For someone willing to settle for a decent model with some good features, the Swift Dzire would do. But if you're the type that needs to go further, it would be better to wait for the Amaze facelift and Volkswagen Ameo which are due to be launched in a short period of time.
