The petrol variant comes with a price tag of Rs 5.56 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi). While the diesel variant costs one lakh more. This makes it almost Rs 30,000 costlier than the standard LXi and LDi variants.
The 2018 Maruti Suzuki special edition Dzire comes with a host of additional features. These include power windows, wheel covers and rear parking sensors.
The special edition compact sedan also comes with Bluetooth enabled music system and remote central locking. Other standard equipment, as part of the LXi andLDi trims include ABS, dual front airbags and brake assist.

The 1.2-litre, four-cylinder, petrol engine produces 82bhp and 113Nm of torque. While the 1.3-litre diesel engine churns out 74bhp and 190Nm of torque. Both engines come mated to a five-speed manual gearbox as standard.
