Building on overwhelming customer response, the 2020 Dzire offers the next-generation K-series engine with segment-first idle start-stop technology (ISS), and upgraded premium exterior design, refreshed interiors, and advanced features. As a company, we have believed in bringing technologies that benefit the customers."
He further added, "The 2020 Dzire will help us to continue with our brand promise to offer products with state-of-the-art design & advanced technology to delight our customers. The introduction of the advanced K-series Dual Jet, the Dual VVT BS6 petrol engine with idle start-stop function makes it more desirable, low on emissions and high on fuel efficiency."
The Maruti Suzuki Dzire is powered by a next-gen K-series Dual Jet, Dual VVTBS6 engine. The 1.2-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine produces 81bhp and a peak torque of 133Nm.

The Maruti Suzuki Dzire rivals the Honda Amaze, the Ford Aspire and the recently launched Hyundai Aura. The company has updated the new Dzire with latest features and technology, and we expect the compact-sedan to remain the segment-leader for the foreseeable future.
