Maruti Suzuki Dzire

Auto Today - - Dashboard -

It’s al­ways a thrill to see a car go through a trans­for­ma­tion, es­pe­cially when new fea­tures stand out and are far bet­ter than its pre­de­ces­sor. That is the case with the Maruti Suzuki’s new Dzire. The sedan has gone through a ma­jor change and this in­cludes the in­te­ri­ors.

The dash, for one, is all new and flaunts a twotone treat­ment. There’s wood in­lay which goes well with the over­all theme that its maker in­tended to cre­ate. Adding to it, is the fact that the plas­tic qual­ity in the car is much bet­ter than the pre­vi­ous sedan. The cen­ter con­sole now houses a large touch­screen in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem. The unit is the same as the one in the Vi­tara Brezza and the Baleno, and is fea­ture rich as well. The sys­tem sup­ports both Ap­ple and An­droid Auto. The touch in­ter­face is sim­ple and it’s easy to browse through its var­i­ous func­tions. For tech en­thu­si­asts, there is a small SD card slot on the top of the unit. This is for the sat nav though the maps have to be pur­chased sep­a­rately. Be­low the in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem, sits the cli­mate con­trol sys­tem and it can be op­er­ated via the two tog­gle but­tons. The car now of­fers a rear AC vent. The in­stru­ment panel is brand new too (and did we men­tion that the new up­com­ing Swift will have a new panel as well). The IP is in­for­ma­tive and of­fers ev­ery­thing a driver would want to know. The other in­ter­est­ing el­e­ment in our top ZDI+ vari­ant, is the flat bot­tom steer­ing wheel. Apart from look­ing sporty, it also pro­vides a tighter grip. Lastly, this new Dzire comes with a sub­stan­tial boot, at an im­pres­sive 378 litres. It can now hold four suit­cases some­thing that the ear­lier model didn’t have. Over­all, we are loving it.

The qual­ity in the sedan has vastly im­proved. The boot space is sub­stan­tially large at 378 litres and can ac­com­mo­date plenty of bag­gage
