Pros : Mileage

Cons : Rear space

As  I am using the basic version LDI, so couldn't explore much feature wise. I think AC is the best feature.I got the car fitted with power windows,DVD player,cooling paper,wheel cover,fog lamps,rubber mats, and central locking after I got the vehicle.So now it looks good.But I would suggest you to buy the VDI variant instead because it has all the above features and even more, except ABS,airbags and alloy wheels. Though the waiting period is 5.5 months(worth the wait) for VDI while the waiting period for LDI and ZDI is two months,but the ZDI cost around Rs 1.5 lakh extra than the LDI. Whereas the VDI costs only Rs 50,000 extra from LDI. So, go for VDI.

Look and Style: Good 

Comfort: Not bad 

Pickup: Very good. 

Mileage: 22 kmpl on highways. 

Best Features: AC

Needs to improve: Rear space. 

Overall Experience: It's a worthy sedan for the  amount you spend.

    Just had my first accident in my dzire,the front piece near the light was damaged,filed a complaint with the police and got it repaired from the dealer by claiming the insurance,i was surprised to look at my car returned to me in same shape,not a trace of accident marks.Happy with maruthi service.JAIHO MARUTHI.

    Hi This is Ravi from Bangalore i am also buying LDI (VDI is 70k more!) so do you think which are the basic things which should be done in maruti showroom itself rather getting fitted outside? Ravi

  • ha |25 May,2011 10:42:21 PM

    Hi Ravi,u can buy autocop brand for power windows and central locking as this is No:1 selling and reliable,comes with 3 yrs waranty for central locking and 1yr for power window,another one in market is xenos which is a bit cheap but poor reviews but has 5yrs waranty for central lock.Anyone would say factory fited one is much reliable than outside fited one.Its all the price that matters.U can get pioneer or sony speakers from outside or factory(costs same),just be sure ur geting original cos theres pioneer china too.The factory fited double din jvc mp3 player looks cool,but u can get pioneer for that too.woofer,amplifier,tweeter can be fited outside too.Get the wheel cover from company only and request for vdi models(i think its cool) cover as Ldi has got diff cover.
