Maruti Swift Dzire 2012 India
Maruti Swift Dzire has created a quite stir in the market with its under 4 metre length. In fact the new 2012 Swift Dzire looks to benefit from the lower tax rates given to cars below the 4 metre length. In the entry level sedan segment, Maruti Swift Dzire is the best seller in its price segment even with new entrants into this segment like the Toyota Etios sedan, Nissan Sunny Sedan etc. The engines on the DZire will remain the same – 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre DDiS. The new generation Swift is wider and longer than the soon to be outgoing model and the same changes will be implied on the DZire as well. We can expect the Dzire CS to start at around Rs. 4.60 lakh for base variant and could have a difference of around 30-40 thousand compared to the older version.
Maruti Swift Dzire 2012 Engine
The Maruti Swift Dzire will continue to be available in both petrol and diesel versions, powered by 1.2L K series petrol engine and 1.3L diesel engine, respectively. The 1.2L MPFi K-10 engine series delivers 87 PS of power and 114N-M torque. The 1.3L DDiS K-10 engine series develops 75PS of power and 190Nm torque. The car has 5 speed manual gear box with the same smooth gear shifting what we get in the old swift Dzire. Its acceleration and swiftness is indeed very snappy crossing the 100KP/H barrier in just 13.8 seconds.
Maruti Swift Dzire 2012 Exteriors
The next generation Maruti Swift Dzire has a smaller overall body size. The exterior of Dzire is not as simple as other sedan cars but definitely is elegant. The car has a well designed aerodynamic shape with body color bumper, fog lamps, aggressively designed head lamps, nicely designed aerodynamic shape front and rear door, maximum visibility of rear windscreen. Maruti still focuses on the middle class category and with the Dzire falling in the small car segment, is entitled for price cuts as well which is very good for the middle class. The exteriors of 2012 Suzuki Swift Sport are also very cool and stylish. Bigger wheels, aggressive body armor and a back spoiler are the major highlights.
Maruti Swift Dzire 2012 Interiors
On the inside, the upcoming Maruti Swift Dzire will come with dashboard and upholstery similar to the new Swift. On the other hand, the interiors of the Maruti Swift DZire are spacious, roomy and offer a seating for five members. Swift Dzire car comes with superior quality audio system and speakers, which makes this vehicle favourite among the music lovers. Audio control switches are provided on the steering wheel. The front seats are very comfortable — there’s plenty of headroom and legroom and even six-footers won’t have a problem. New Swift Dzire comes with more interior space and a superior boot. With the designers of the new Dzire going with the small is big theme, the Dzire will be a direct competitor to the Toyota Etios and the Tata Indigo sedan.

Composed in a solid reinforced body it has seatbelts for all the passengers with pre-tensioners, Dual SRS airbags at the front and ABS that controls the braking and wheel rotation when brakes are applied suddenly.

Maruti Swift Dzire 2012 Ride and Handling
The transmission type is manual and comes with standard power assisted. The diesel variant of Maruti Swift Dzire also adorns a five speed manual transmission gearbox which provides a greater fuel efficiency and acceleration to the car. The front ventilated disc brakes & rear drum disc brakes never let the car skid even at short distance and maintain balance on road. The ride quality it is strictly firm, a small trade off for all the pleasure that one receives during those twisting and turning.
The compromise however is in the way the Maruti Swift Dzire handles. It doesn’t feel as sharp as the Swift hatchback, the soft rear suspension making it feel a little loose and floaty. The car offers good ride and handling abilities, great features and an out of the world driving pleasure.
