Maruti Suzuki has finally launched the all new 2017 DZire in India. The car still ducks under 4 metres but looks much better than the previous generation car. It is based on a new platform that makes it even lighter than the outgoing car. The new car tops out at 1,000kgs that is much lighter than before. This has helped fuel efficiency and will also aid better performance from the existing engines. Power is drawn from the same 1.2-litre petrol engine and the 1.3-litre diesel engine that develop 83 HP and 74 HP respectively. Both engines are mated to either a 5-speed manual or an AMT automatic gearbox. The petrol engine is rated to deliver 22 kmpl while the diesel deliver 28.4 kmpl.
