Considering the current DZire, this one looks way better. Looks to have shed a lot of quirkiness that the current DZire has.

Looks like a cheap PS job. The boot profile and taillamps don't match with the spy pics at all.

The taillamps in the PS job looks like swift's while the spy pics showed some resemblance to kizashi taillamps.

i find the new design appealing , its taken care of that boxy feel at the rear and given the car a more sporty look in my opinion , its always been good value for money and with it being priced even lower the VFM increases that much more.

90PS 'Super Turbo' DDiS Diesel engine on Dzire CS, wouldn't this kill the sale of SX4? If this is true then the advantage that SX4 will hold are, the ground clearance, more boot space and little spacious than Dzire. All these at a cost of around 2.5 lakhs more.

I personally didnt like the design. The current Dezire looks better than this. From the pic, it seems that it has been modified only to counter the shallow boot of Swift.

For folks who go on highway trips often and for longer than 3-4 days, the boot space is never enough. The space in my Esteem is just enough for two to take their luggage with them on a trip so when we're packing four, the luggage for the remaining two just doesn't have enough space even after using the rear center for storage. The airport trips do see extensive use of the boot space with some luggage on the seats when there are more than two passengers.

If you're packing your stuff in suitcases, fitting them into the boot space will limit you - if you can't stack a suitcase over the other or fit them alongside each other, you've got one suitcase in the trunk and another on the front passenger seat. To achieve the smaller size, Maruti ought to use thinner seats - that's 2 inches of space right there!

I always wonder why maruti do not hire good car designers. You've to compromise on the looks for every car that maruti rolls out. SX4 would be an exception since it has a better look than other maruti cars. Everyone says that maruti knows india & indians well, but these blunders make me to think on whether its true.

Hyundai maintain its class in every car.. Appearance is a big factor for every car. Hyundai's strategy is amazing - Appearance, quality & reliability.

If maruti is going to stop the current version & rely on under 4 metres car, then its not looking the big picture,but merely wasting the money Expectation to cover customers by giving this 50K discount doesnt make sense since it already have the customers in its kitty - Current Dzire. ( who are ready to wait for months to get this car).

Just some modification would further boost the sales - Simple.

Sometimes Indian collaboration kills the major manufacturer. I think suzuki can shine better if they get out of maruti. My hope is that the japanese can do better being independent.

You know why SX4 alone looks good, cause that was designed by Fiat in joint collaboration with Suzuki. Have a look at Suzuki SX4 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The link only says that it is also sold by Fiat, it is originally a Suzuki only with no Fiat contribution on design.

The Wikipedia page on Fiat Sedici states that the vehicle was co-developed by Suzuki & Fiat.

Anyone?

The current Dzire is a vary practical trouble-free notch back ideal for in city use and occasional long drives with a full boot. True it looks quirky for many, but the sheer 'image' it has with the 'non-petrol heads' is unimaginable.
I like mine for its practicality and trouble free drive in city and at sane speeds on the crowded highways of Kerala. Hope the new Dzire will be a run a way success. If the boot is too small, it is unlikely to find many takers compared to the older one. The 90 hp version will be the key model for maruti in the lower C or C- segment.
This is the only angle in which i like to see my car
