Description

The Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire is India’s highest selling compact sedan, and with good reason. It is one of the first compact sedans to have hit the market and got everything spot on. The Swift DZire is a well profiled car even though it is actually based on the Swift hatchback. The roofline, c-pillar and boot have been blended together rather well.

The Maruti Swift DZire offers a good amount of space inside the cabin for front and rear passengers for a car of it’s size. The lively beige interiors make the car not only look premium but also makes it feel more spacious and airy than it actually is. The Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire is also a well equipped car in it’s segment as the top end variants come fitted with power windows all around, a double-din stereo with steering mounted audio controls, tilt adjustable steering, height adjustable driver’s seat, electrically operated ORVMs, day/night mirror, front and rear fog lamps, remote central locking, alloy wheels, rear defogger, anti-lock braking system and airbags.

Maruti Suzuki’s Swift DZire is powered by a 1.2 litre, naturally aspirated, four cylinder petrol engine, while bulk of Swift DZire sales are accounted for by India’s favourite diesel engine, the 1.3 litre, turbocharged, four cylinder, MultiJet diesel engine. Both engines are reliable and offer good driveability and fuel efficiency. 

The Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire is an easy to maintain car as it is reliable, efficient and affordable. All of this, combined with the fact that Maruti Suzuki has the widest dealer and service network in the country makes the Swift DZire an even more appealing proposition.

Exterior

Being based on the Swift hatchback means that the car has a relatively good looking front end. Maruti has done a great job of blending in the boot of the car. The rear door has a large window and the C-pillar has been blended well with the boot. The black A and B pillars contribute towards making the car more appealing.

The boot itself is a small one as this is a compact sedan, this gives the car a short rear overhang, making for a sporty rear stance. At the back, the car has large tail lamps, a thick strip of chrome runs in between then and over the U-shaped license plate holder and a large bumper housing the rear fog lamp at the bottom centre section.

Exterior

So much excitement is centred on fourth-generation City, mainly because it is widely distinct from its predecessors, filled with enormous style and shine. Honda has also introduced a new design concept to the all new City called ‘Shark Conceptual design and it gives the vehicle a refreshed signature look. The magical exterior framework of the car is characterized by neat cuts beneath chrome decorated door handles, the bulge above the wheel arch looks trendy and the blackened B-pillar builds the aesthetic nature of the car. On the front is classy looking parallelogram shaped headlights that highlights the spark elegant beauty of the vehicle. The vibrant front coloured bumper is a unique selling point of the vehicle. Like the front, the rear view is aesthetically elegant with neatly sculpted wrap around tail lights.
