Sedan Suzuki Dzire Indian brother Suzuki Swift
The Suzuki Dzire sedan has replenished the 2017-2018 Suzuki lineup, the car is presented on April 24 at a special event in the capital of India, Delhi. cityradio review Suzuki compact car and Maruti Dzire – photos, price, performance parameters The compact sedan is the platform brother of the new generation Suzuki Swift hatchback. Sales of the new model by Suzuki Dzire in the Indian market will begin on May 16, 2017 at a price of 9300-9500 US dollars.
Recently, the Japanese company Suzuki has modestly introduced a Suzuki Jimny mini SUV and a pair of Suzuki SX4 crossover and Suzuki Vitara, the company that may in the near future complement the Suzuki Swift’s latest hatch. Not much, as for the manufacturer, produced by the end of 2016, more than 2.4 million vehicles, of which almost a fifth is Suzuki Swift. Just imagine, Suzuki makes and sells more cars in the world than Mercedes, BMW, Audi or Renault. But the main market for the Japanese company in India is the Suzuki lineup, which is represented by as many as 14 cars. Therefore, it is not surprising that the Suzuki Swift hatchback and the Suzuki Swift Dzire sedan are being sold in parallel in the Indian market.
In the new version of the four doors, however, I lost the names of the Swift hatchback and now it is simply called the Suzuki Dzire company (the last 10 years, the previous two generations of the model called the Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire). The new Suzuki Dzire 2017 is a 3rd generation model and is of course based on the latest Heartect platform of the base Suzuki Swift hatchback. The new platform allowed the novelty to save from 85 to 105 kg curb weight compared to the previous 2nd generation sedan model. While the new generation of Suzuki Dzire will delight owners with a more durable body made with extensive use of high-strength steels with increased torsional rigidity, better handling, comfortable suspension settings and a warm and friendly driver and passenger lounge, as well as a more vlastiteli trunk.
- The external dimensions of the body of the company Suzuki Dzire 2017-2018 is 3995 mm long, 1735 mm wide, 1515 mm high, with a wheelbase of 2,450 mm 163 mm ground clearance.
- The Suziki and Maruti Dzire sedan body styles are 155 mm longer and 20 mm higher than the rear of the Swift hatchback.
It is a pity that the four doors received a three-volume body with a separate trunk, they lost the stylish and expressive silhouette of the hatch platform. It seems that the designers hastily created a sedan, depriving stylish cars, hidden in the glass frame of the tailgate handles and curvaceous bump, widening rear arches, a roof falling to the rear, floating on the rear panel and taillights of complex shape.
The sedan turned out to be insipid and boring. An even stronger tilt of the windshield frame and other glasses, the original bumper and an abundance of chrome parts on the front, all-LED headlights, LED rear lights and stylish 16-inch alloy wheels (a treasure trove of expensive trim levels) are not able to provide a new bright appearance.
- The exterior of the new sedan can be ordered painted in one of the available enamel colors: Arctic White, Oxford Blue, Silky Silver, Coral Grey, Gallant Red or Sherwood Brown.
In the Indian market, the new Suzuki Dzire is offered in four fixed trims. The basic version, of course, is rather poor equipped. But the sedan in the maximum configuration (shown in the photo) will not only have cream upholstery with decorative woodgrain inserts on the front panel, steering wheel and door cards, but a lot of modern equipment.
In the arsenal of equipment, expensive trim multifunctional steering wheel, elegant and informative instrument panel with a trip computer screen, an advanced multimedia system with a 7-inch color touch screen (navigation, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and MirrorLink), climate control with the original unit control system, keyless entry into the cabin and engine start button, power windows on all doors, exterior mirrors with LED repeaters and electric adjustments.
The interior of the Suzuki Dzire sedan is generally very similar to the interior of the Suzuki Swift hatchback, but there are some differences. The sedan is more simple dashboard and steering wheel, a different shape of the central air vent and climate control ventilation unit. Also, the four-door boasts a roomy trunk that can take 376 liters of cargo volume. The driver and three passengers are comfortably accommodated in the cabin, if desired, of course, three are sitting in the second row, but you can forget about comfort, but it’s a bit cramped in the shoulders. At the same time, there is enough legroom and above the top.
