Maruti Suzuki Dzire was launched in an all-new avatar last year. The sub-4-meter compact sedan became India’s largest selling car soon after and has surpassed Maruti’s popular vehicles like the Alto 800. Maruti has now launched a special edition of the Dzire in the Indian market that will be available in the base variants of both petrol and diesel engine options. The special edition LXI is priced at Rs. 5.56 lakhs and the diesel special edition is available at Rs. 6.56 lakhs, both prices ex-showroom, Delhi.
The special edition Dzire will be available with both LDi and LXi variants. As these are the entry-level variants, they do not offer a wide range of features and options. To attract even more customers and boost the sales further, Maruti is now offering standard features like music system with front door speakers with Bluetooth, front power windows, remote central locking, reverse parking sensor and wheel covers. The special edition Dzire is priced at the same price as the regular versions. It is not known if the Limited Edition of the car will be available in limited numbers.
The regular variants of the Dzire get a long list of features. The car gets dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist as standard. The all-new Dzire became the best-selling car in India and has held the position for a few months now. The higher buying power of the consumers has been one of the reasons behind the success of the new compact sedan. It takes on the likes of the Hyundai Xcent, Ford Figo Aspire, Volkswagen Ameo in the segment.
The all-new 3rd generation Dzire is powered by a 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine that develops a maximum power of 82 Bhp and 113 Nm of peak torque.
