The Swift DZire has a lovely cabin design. The dual-tone black-and-beige interiors help give the car a premium look and make it feel airy, even though the small windows do not let in a lot of light. The faux wood strip on the front doors as well as below the side air-con vents up front looks premium. The moment you sit in to the driver's seat, the soft padding is evident. The driver's seat is a nice place to be and ergonomically the DZire is one of the better cars around. I especially liked the silver inserts in the steering wheel and around the central air-con vents.
Once it gets dark, the orange-red background lightning for the speedometer console looks fab! The overall quality of interiors is pretty good considering the price the car sells for. The top end model comes as loaded as the Swift hatchback – steering wheel controls with telephony controls, automatic climate control, good sounding audio system with Bluetooth connectivity, Keyless-entry with Start/Stop button is a new feature, electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs and those lovely cup-holders in the front of the side vents make life easier. This feature will come in very handy during the North Indian summers! Another place where the new DZire scores is the space for back-seat passengers as well as the comfort factor. You immediately notice the softer seats which is a boon for chauffer driven tired souls or the elderly in the house.
The new DZire also has a longer wheelbase which liberates more leg and knee room. Further, the back-rest is inclined more and the rear of the front seat scooped. All these changes add up to more space at the back. Finally, even with a 6-foot driver up front, there is decent space at the rear for normal sized adults. However, the new DZire simply cannot match up to the likes of the Toyota Etios, Tata Zest and Hyundai Xcent in this department. Infact, similarly priced hatchbacks like the Hyundai i20 beat the new DZire as far as passenger space is concerned. Another limitation of the new DZire is the boot space, which is small compared to the Hyundai Xcent, and holds just 316 litres. The boot is best for a couple of medium sized suit cases for a weekend trip.
