New Dzire 2012 now with automatic transmission

It's only a matter of time that congested bumper to bumper traffic, tight parking spaces and hours on the road would  drive Indian car buyers to consider the convenience of an Automatic transmission. Maruti and Hyundai seemed to have understood this need and are therefore offering cars with Auto Transmission.

New Dzire 2012 - Convenience of Automatic Transmission

New Dzire 2012 has managed to continue the sales momentum that Old Dzire has generated for it. The reason for the same are not very difficult to fathom – Maruti Suzuki’s Heritage with related perceived tangible and in-tangible benefits are always clearly understood and accepted by Indian car buyer, Diesel and Petrol power plant gives every car buyer in India a range to choose from and with the Automatic petrol version Maruti is possibly testing waters which will help them future product strategies for the Indian car market. We at ecardlr.com tested the Automatic options to get you the first hand feel for the same so as to facilitate your car buying decisions.

New Swift Dzire 2012 Automatic is no different from its other variants visually and in all respects (Obviously it’s the same car), however , magic is contained all under the hood and is quite an experience.


Swift Dzire 2012 offers automatic transmission with the VXi petrol variant only; A masterstroke from Maruti,  since Automatics are still to find favours with Indian car buyers in large numbers which along with the rising petrol prices helps keep the entry cost on a lower side. These 2 factors will keep the demand contained and give Maruti Suzuki time to study future trends and prepare themselves adequately. We are sure Maruti has taken a strategic decision by offering Automatic with Vxi variant of New Swift Dzire 2012.


The 4 speed automatic comes with a 1197 CC petrol power plant consisting of 4 cylinders in inline configuration, 16 V, DOHC Valve train with VVT injection mechanism. The car delivers 87 Ps of raw power is available and torque of the tune of 114 Nm is available at 4000 rpm.


The engine is mated with 4-speed automatic transmission is smooth and refined; in fact another brilliant piece of engineering by the Maruti-Suzuki. It’s so responsiveness that one will not crave for a Manual again. City Drive becomes a breeze. Drivability is commendable. You can dart pass other vehicles with just a slight push on the accelerator pedal and without any fuss. So if your driving confined to city only and you are looking for the convenience of automatic transmission, Then Swift Dzire 2012 would make a great buy. This automatic can give any decent manual transmission a run for its money.


New Dzire automatic Vxi comes with price tag of 6.66 lakh where as ordinary petrol Vxi is retailed at 5.41 lakh. This means you need to dole out lakh and few thousands extra for the automatic version of the car. But then the convenience and responsiveness the automatic offers is worth the worth the price. Without any hesitation you can go for it if your driving is confined to cities and move through traffic congestion without tiring yourself.
