Answers for this Question

The new generation Swift Dzire is unquestionably the best-selling compact sedan in India. It comes with two engine options i.e. the 1.3-litre DDiS diesel and 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine. Both get 5-speed manual transmissions as standard. Dzire petrol can be owned with a 4-speed automatic gearbox, while the diesel gets an optional 5-speed automated manual transmission (AMT).The car gets a good list of features, including push button start, 6 speakers, electrically foldable and adjustable wing mirrors, steering mounted audio/phone controls and more. Additionally, ABS with EBD and dual airbags are available as an optional extra with every variant.

Maruti Suzuki S-CrosS- Termed as a premium crossover, the S-Cross has plenty more to offer than the usual run of the mill hatchbacks on stilts which are often positioned as a crossover. The new Maruti packed to the brim with features, has acres of cabin space and uses top-notch materials never seen on any Maruti hatchback till date.

The S-Cross is available with two engine options, a 1.3 and a 1.6 litre DDiS engine. This is the only vehicle in the Maruti Suzuki portfolio to not have a petrol motor on offer. The two engines are dubbed DDiS200 and DDiS320 respectively, where 200 and 320 represent the torque these engines generate. Here’s a quick glance at the numbers:

Engine            Power        Torque    Gearbox             Fuel Efficiency
1.3 l DDiS200    90PS       200Nm    5-Speed MT    23.65km/l
1.6 l DDiS320    120PS    320Nm     6-Speed MT    22.7km/l

The S-Cross will be available in 8 variants across 5 trims: Sigma, Sigma (O), Delta, Zeta and Alpha. The Sigma and Sigma (O) variants will only get the 1.3 litre engine.

Coming to the ride and handling aspect - Swift Dzire comes with a comfort-oriented suspension setup featuring a McPherson strut layout at the front and a torsion beam system at the rear. It feels smooth, comfortable and there are hardly any surprises.  The steering is responsive and fun to use and while the overall package isn’t enthusiast-centric, it offers enough balance to make it practical, yet fun to drive. Its overall behaviour remains predictable, but the rear suspension feels a bit too soft.

The S-Cross has a relatively mature ride quality.The suspension isn’t soft and neither too stiff – in short, very much like the Swift. The car does manage to tackle potholes and broken roads with relative ease. The straight-line stability is fantastic – best from Maruti Suzuki till date. The S-Cross feels stable and eager to change direction, even during triple digit speeds. Due to the crossover-ish ground clearance of 180 mm, there is inevitable body roll when chucked fast into a corner.

Safety - Features like 3-point seatbelts, rear door child locks, a security alarm system and an engine immobilizer have been given as standard across all variants in Dzire. You also get speed-sensitive auto door locks.    

All trims of the S-Cross are loaded with Anti Lock Brakes and Electronic Brake Distribution. Another great addition is disc brakes all around where the convention is to have disc brakes only at the front and drums at the rear.
