Just confirmed with a friend; yes it indeed is true. Auto box only on the petrol. The transmission being imported from Japan.
Suzuki struggling with the pricing due to the double whammy of $ vs Yen & $ vs Re.

It lives to its tradition of a very weird looking car, While the front bumper treatment looks good, I cannot say the same about the rear profile. The interior beige/black combo looks good, but why the unncessary fake wood lining in the center?

Lastly, what is the design of alloys? One word - Horrendous.

Is this going to get the same 75bhp MJD or the 90 BHP one with VGT? Of maruti had launched it with the diesel automatic, it would have been a segment first and a redefining one at that.

Guys, you heard it right. It is coming in February. There is a 1.2L 4-speed Automatic too but it will only be available in VXI trim.

We drove all three variants at the BIC and I was just about to update our website when I chanced upon this thread. Here is a side shot for everyone.

Can you share the details about its handling and other issues?

Guys an album was uploaded by the Budh International Circuit/Indian Grandprix Page on Facebook on the Dzire Media drive.
Sadly the pics were taken off an hour after posting them.All of the pics had Blue Dzires.
It now looks pretty good and way better than the previous one.

@Parth,

The launch date is on Feb 1st.

@Bone Collector,

I am just penning down everything. For reasons involving forum rules and their violations, I can't post any links when I am done. But you know where to find it don't you?

Good to know that MSIL has brought out a small sedan, that looks far less hideous than the current Dzire!

I wonder how much the boot size has reduced.

Looks a lot cleaner than the existing model. The dual tone interiors adds a flavor to the vehicle. However I feel a slight increase in the power wouldn't have done much harm.

If they plan to discontinue the current Dzire then what will be the pricing of the new model? Given that it will get tax benefits, is it going to be priced lower then the current one? If they price it at the current levels then wouldn't the customers feel cheated?

Only L version for existing dzire ?
So Maruti will slowly phase out the current dzire when its demand falls.
But atleast the L version owners can claim they have a 'bigger sedan' with big boot

Those will primarily be aimed at the taxi market! And the precise reason for phasing out the higher variants!

Problem of information scattered around multiple threads. The price will be same as the current gen Dzire. Maruti claims that they have introduced 150 *new* features in the upcoming Dzire and hence they will NOT pass on the tax benefits.
