2020 Maruti Suzuki Dzire gets cosmetic and feature updates along with a new 1.2-litre DualJet petrol engine found in the Baleno
The 2020 Maruti DZire has been spied at its production facility. On sale since 2008, the compact sedan has set new benchmarks for the brand for more than a decade now and it still continues to dominate.
With competition on the rise, Maruti Suzuki will likely launch the facelifted Dzire later this month or in early April.
The DZire’s front fascia has been revised with enlarged grille and redesigned front bumper. The fog lamps have been given new chrome trim. The overall silhouette of the five-seater sedan remains the same and the rear end also gets subtle cosmetic revisions.
The interior design of the facelifted Maruti DZire would be the same as that of the old model. However, there should be new fabric seat upholstery. Instead of the 7-inch SmartPlay touchscreen infotainment system, there will be the 7-inch SmartPlay Studio unit in the new model.
The new Dzire will be safer than the model it replaces with inclusion of Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with Hill Hold function.
Powering the new Dzire will be a BSVI compliant 1.2-litre DualJet petrol engine with idle start-stop technology which produces 90 PS and 113 Nm. The same engine can also be found in the Baleno hatchback.
