New Swift Dzire Vs Old Swift Dzire

Trust Maruti to have guts and put one of their fast selling and one of their most favourite model under the scalpel. Initial euphoria seems to suggest another bull’s eye strike from Maruti. 2012 celebration at Maruti Dealership will extend into February with much more enthusiasm and ringing cash counters.

So what all is new in New Swift Dzire; to start with and the most obvious one being the New Swift Dzire’s length which is smaller by 65 mm Vs the Old Swift Dzire. This rather than helping the customer has helped Maruti to bring down the excise burden from 22% to 10%. New Swift Dzire is taller by 25 mm over the Outgoing Swift Dzire. The cabin of the New Swift Dzire seems more spacious thanks to an Increase in Wheelbase of 40 mm Vs Old Swift Dzire. The major compromise in the New Swift is a reduced boot space of 316 Litres vs 44) Litres earlier.

VVT (Variable Valve Timing) system driven petrol power plant along with 20 Kg Lower Kerb weight has managed to make the New Swift Dzire less thirsty as compared to the Old Swift Dzire. The New Swift Dzire delivers 19.1 KMPL (ARAI Mileage) Vs 17.9 KMPL of the Old Swift Dzire.

Driver Side Auto Down Power Window, Electrically Adjustable ORVM’s with Turn Indicator, Instantaneous Fuel Consumption and Average Fuel Consumption display, 15” Alloys Vs 14 “ earlier are the other key improvements in the New Swift Dzire Vs Old Swift Dzire.

The big ticket change is in the pricing which has gone down by around Rs.20000 for the top end variant Vs the earlier Swift Dzire. Similar price cuts in lower variants and versions too have been done by Maruti.

Maruti designers have really used the scalpel on the old Swift Dzire quite commendably, as the New Swift Dzire looks far more balanced (even though its looks like a notch back). The new smallish boot seems to sit quite comfortably on the Swift platform.
