Scoop: Next Gen Dzire to be under 4 meters

     Maruti is going the Tata way. Like Tata's designed a Indigo less than 4 meters, the next generation Dizre based on the all new Swift platform will be less than 4 meters length. This means the car will qualify for small car excise duty exemption which is 10% for a small car as compared to 22% for the cars above 4 meters.

     The new Dzire will be powered by the same 1.2 L , 84 Bhp petrol engine and 1.3L, 75 Bhp diesel mill. A more powerful diesel engine with 90 Bhp power sourced from Fiat is also on the cards.

     The Dzire is designed in-house by Maruti and will be sold only in India. Since the all-new Swift platform has bigger dimensions than its earlier model, engineers at Maruti have a challenging job to fit a boot with less than 4 meter in length. The excise benefit with is around Rs. 40,000/- will be passed on to the customer. The new Dizre will be launched soon after the new Swift which will make its appearance on roads by June this year.
