Default Re: New compact Swift DZire on test

I don't know how relevant it is but Siddharth Vinayak Patankar from Car & bike show posted on FaceBook that VXI variant will have 4 speed automatic option, ZXI and other diesel variants will only have manual option.

Anyone can confirm or put some more light on this news ?

Now VXI being a middle variant will have automatic option and ZXI being top variant will have only manual option. I simply cannot understand what strategy is being adopted by Maruti or it might be other way round (Typo error from SVP in facebook) lets wait and watch.

Guess all auto journalists are getting to drive this car now - in the coming days. Is team-bhp also invited? I guess we were NOT invited for new Swift's launch. We have to wait and see.

Confirmed launch on Feb 1, 2012 as per Hormazd [ACI]!

Heard there will be an automatic version also. IMO the boot looks odd. Is there any change in the wheelbase?

What the hell !
Team-bhp not invited ? That was not all expected.
When it comes to internet, I guess Tbhp is the most dependable community/site today to get the auto news. Manufacturers simply can't ignore this, atleast in the coming time.

Feb 1st launch 2012. Any idea about delivery of this version ?

Feb 1st 2013 ?


Is it the VGT 90HP superturbo or normal FGT one?

Looks are better than the current Dzire. But wondering what are those 150 new features about?

And here is the first impression report from ACI.
  • Engines : 1.2L 86 bhp petrol & 1.3L 75 bhp Diesel [same as Swift]
  • The beige plastics in the dash enhance ambience
  • Rear space better than current Dzire
  • Boot space, at 316 litres is a whole size down on the old car
  • Auto option ONLY on the mid VXi trim
  • Auto is well mated, but jerky under hard acceleration
  • Softer suspension at the rear, but higher body roll than Swift.
  • ARAI-tested figures of 19.1kpl for the manual petrol and 23.4kpl for the diesel
  • Maruti will announce pricing on February 1 at the car’s launch - mostly same price as of now.
