- The new Maruti Suzuki Dzire has raked over 51,000 bookings since launch

- Prices for the all-new Maruti Dzire start at Rs. 5.45 lakh (ex-Delhi)
The new Maruti Dzire was in India only last month, ushering in a redesigned exterior, interior and an extensive feature list. We came back sufficiently impressed when we drove the third generation Maruti Suzuki Dzire, though we weren't sure how the customers would react to the slightly increased price. However, at the car's launch, Maruti Suzuki announced that the new Dzire had already received nearly 33,000 bookings. The number has only grown since then - racking up more than 51,000 orders since its launch. Considering the increasing demand, the car's waiting period has also gone up.
At the launch of the Dzire in May, it was announced that the car already had a waiting period of 8 weeks. Given the rise in the demand, that number has gone up to 15 weeks which is more than 3 months depending on the variant one has booked. The Dzire has ruled the roost in the subcompact sedan segment for close to a decade and the new generation of the car looks to be filling in the big shoes pretty well.
The new Maruti Suzuki Dzire is manufactured in the company's Manesar plant and 650 cars are built every day. The new-gen Dzire has grown, not only in dimensions but in the way it looks. The styling is derived from the new generation Swift hatchback and gets a massive trapezoidal grille and a raked A-pillar for a more sedan-like stance. The new HEARTECT platform is lighter and stronger than the older version with the use of high tensile steel in the construction and has helped lose up to 85 kg on the petrol and up to 105 kg on the diesel variants.
Under the hood, it's the same powertrain but is a lot more efficient now. The 1.2-litre K-Series 4-pot petrol is tuned for 82 bhp at 6000 rpm and 113 Nm of peak torque at 4200 rpm. The 1.3-litre DDiS diesel, on the other hand, makes 74 bhp at 4000 rpm and 190 Nm of peak torque at 2000 rpm. Both engines come paired with a 5-speed manual and Automated Manual Transmission options. The engines now return an ARAI certified fuel economy of 22 kmpl on the petrol and 28.48 kmpl on the diesel version.

The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz has been around for sometime, and has certainly shown signs of ageing. That, however, has not necessarily affected its sale-ability, as it continues compete neck-to-neck against the some of the newer offerings in the segment. However, the Ciaz has gotten longer in the tooth and the automaker is readying the facelifted version that will be going on sale later this year. The 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz facelift was spotted testing recently, and builds our hopes on what to expect from the popular selling compact sedan.
