The Maruti Dzire is powered by the same engine as seen on the Swift hatchback. The Dzire is more ‘India-focused’, compared to other offerings from Maruti. The first generation Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire was launched back in 2008. The car was initially a full size sedan, however, the sub-four-metre tax benefits made Maruti develop a compact-sedan for India. Now named just the ‘Dzire’, the compact-sedan is in its third generation. The diesel offering on the Dzire offers decent performance, while also providing excellent mileage.
