Launched on May 16 at Rs 5.45 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the all-new Maruti Suzuki Dzire has received an overwhelming response in the country. This is evident from the fact that it has already crossed 44,000 bookings in mere 13 days of its launch. The compact sedan is being hailed for its contemporary design, updated interiors, hi-tech features and increased dimensions. With such a magnificent acclamation, the vehicle now attracts a waiting period of eight to ten weeks depending on the variants you opt for.
The third-generation Dzire was first premiered on April 24 before being officially launched earlier this month. In its major overhaul, the compact sedan gets radical changes inside-out. Based on the light-weight Heartect platform, the new Dzire is lighter by 85kg and 105kg in its petrol and diesel versions, respectively.

The Maruti sedan features increased practicality this time around with an extended width of 40mm and a 20mm longer wheelbase. However, it’s shorter by 40mm. On the flip side though, the ground clearance has gone up by 7mm and now stands at 163mm. All these tweaks have led to an increase in the cabin and boot space, which now stands at 378 litres (62 litres more)!
The Dzire continues to carry the same set of a 1.2-litre 83PS/113Nm petrol engine and a 1.3-litre 75PS/190Nm diesel unit. Both engines are linked to a five-speed manual transmission or a five-speed automated manual transmission (AMT). The updated sedan ditches the earlier 4-speed automatic gearbox. With the petrol motor, the Dzire returns an excellent mileage of 22.0kmpl (up by 5.5kmpl), while with the diesel, it delivers a class-leading fuel efficiency of 28.4kmpl (up by 6.8 per cent).
With respect to the waiting period, its rivals Tata Tigor and Hyundai Xcent, also call for a waiting period of 3-4 weeks and 1-2 weeks, respectively. However, the period further depends on the variant you opt for.
