Exterior

Though the new model of the vehicle is smaller than the previous model it does have more of an aesthetic appeal than its predecessor. The design means less space in the boot which has a capacity of 316 litres. But due to the lighter weight of the body, new Swift DZire is more fuel efficient. Looking at the front of the vehicle you will note the similarities it has with the new Swift, with only a small change to the bumper. The front grille is finished with a black matte effect and features fog lamps that are round to create some sort of distinguishing feature so it is different from the Maruti Swift. When you look at it from the rear you will notice that the tail lamps are new as well as there is a new bumper, a strip of chrome above the registration plate and the boot design is also entirely new. This new design of the boot allows it to incorporate better into the body of the vehicle and gives it a more proportionate look which is something you don’t see in the 2011 model.

Interior

The interiors of the Maruti Swift DZire have an upmarket look, thanks to the beige and black interiors. The interior can best be described by the words irresistible, attractive and as a head turner that has the capability to attract potential buyers with just one look. The interiors not only look good but are also very roomy, thus providing driver and passengers with enough comfort. The fabric used for the upholstery creates a comforting ambience in the car that gives an illusion of more space than is actually there. With the trendy and sporty looks this car will appeal to the younger crowd but it also has enough elegance and style to appeal to older folks as well – it has tremendous amounts of crossover appeal. There is a good amount of storage space for luggage as well as spaces for cups and bottles thanks to the cup holders present throughout the car. There is also a console box along with ticket holders and more storage options for driver and passengers riding in the Maruti Swift DZire. The rears seat can be folded down for more space when there is more luggage than there are passengers.

Comfort and Convenience

The top variant has a lot of comfort features like the power steering which makes it easier to turn. It also features an automatic climate control system that allows the vehicle to automatically change the temperature inside the car depending on the temperature outside. There is also the central locking feature as well as the power windows, audio controls mounted on the steering wheel, the ability to adjust the height of the driver’s seat, music system that is integrated with the dashboard, fog lights, rear defogger and alloy wheels.

Thanks to the electronic ORVMs, one can easily change the view without having to open the windows. The windows are not the only thing that the driver can operate at a touch of a button thanks to the steering mounted controls for the entertainment system. The ability to adjust the driver’s seat and the head restraint provides a comfortable drive for the driver which makes him also more alert and gives him the ability to be more cautious on the road. Other features that add to the comfort of driving and travelling in the vehicle are boot-lid opener, fuel lid opener, cigarette lighter and antenna to name a few.

Dashboard and Storage

The dashboard of the Maruti Swift DZire features a digital trip meter which gives you precise mileage when moving from point A to point B.

Engine and Gearbox

The Maruti Swift DZire can be described as a dynamic car that features a fair share of advanced technology. It is a high performer and comes in petrol and diesel variants. The petrol versions have a 1197cc engine from the K series that has a 1.2 L capacity. This makes the car powerful while being silent due to the reduction in vibration that this type of engine provides being from the K series. The engine is specifically a K-12 series which has a double over-head camshaft that is light weight and features a five speed manual transmission. This ensures a reduction of friction, improved durability and higher torque. The car is made more economically friendly due to the fact that this engine meets the guidelines for emission, specifically the Bharat Stage IV emission norms.

The engine delivers 83.2 bhp of power at 6000 rpm and delivers 115 Nm torque at an rpm of 4000. Diesel variants have a DDis engine that has a capacity of 1.3 litres and provides 1248 cc. This engine is responsible for the fuel efficiency and high performance of the diesel variants of the Maruti Swift DZire. This variant also incorporates a 5 speed manual transmission and features a fuel injection system that uses a 5 step multi-point rail mechanism. This gives these cars optimized NVH and improved fuel combustion. This engine provides cleaner emissions thanks to the ERG cooled system that allows the recirculation of cooled exhaust gas within the engine. The engine valve can operate quickly and precisely due to the DOHC configuration of the valve. The engine also provides higher torque due to the combination of an inter-cooler and a turbocharger; this is also responsible for the ability of the vehicle to offer clearer emissions. The maximum power of this engine is 74 bhp at 4000 rpm and 190 nm torque at 2000 rpm.

Acceleration and Performance

The petrol variants of the Maruti Swift DZire have the 1.2 litre K series engine that exhibits an 1197 cc displacement. This type of engine allows for reduced friction which means that the engine and thus the vehicle give a better performance.

It goes from 0 to 100 km in 13.8 seconds and its top speed is 169 kmph. The diesel variant has a DDiS engine with a 1.3 L capacity and a 1248 cc displacement. They have a five speed manual transmission like the petrol variants but also feature synchromesh in all five gears plus reverse. These provide better fuel combustion and fuel efficiency due to the injector system that it uses. The engine is responsible for the car reaching 100 km in 14.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 162 kmph.

Mileage

Both variants of the Maruti Swift DZire are fuel efficient and provide optimum fuel economy. The mileage for its petrol variant is 13 kmpl for city streets and 19 kmpl on the highway. The diesel variants give a mileage of 17 kmpl on city streets and a whopping 22 on the highway. These mileage figures are ARAI certified.

Safety Features

This vehicle has a number of safety features that will definitely appeal to buyers. The safety of this car is top notch thanks to the multiple advanced features that it has. It has both passive and active safety features that are always armed and ready in any situation. The dual airbags ensure that your body is protected from an impact and the jerk that is caused by a collision. The steering wheel is collapsible so in the event on a collision it will not cause too much injury on impact. The ABS feature helps to prevent the wheel from locking in the event you have to brake suddenly. For short distance brake the ventilated disc brakes and the booster assist give optimum performance and EBD allows the braking force to be distributed between the front and back wheels. The car also features a demister that provides excellent vision even when the weather conditions are at their worst. There is also the intelligent computerized system that allows you to keep out unwanted guests. The front and back fog lamps also help with driving in bad weather conditions. Other safety features include child lock, side impact beams, warning for when the key is not removed from the ignition, double horn and a stop lamp that is mounted high.

Suspension and Brakes

If it is one thing that you can count on Maruti cars for, is a dynamic braking system that is sound. On the front you will find ventilated disc brakes and on the back you will find drum type brakes. The braking features allow the best braking while preventing the locking of the wheel when the brakes are applied in panic. The car’s suspension in the front features a McPherson strut with coil spring and in the back features a torsion beam with coil spring. This new Maruti has a new type of suspension which allows it to be more stable and to provide you with a comfortable ride.
