Sorry Sashi, I would like to disagree because Maruti had a Black version of the 2015/16 facelift Dzire. Am confident on this because, my dad booked a Midnight/Cave Black (not 100% sure of the Black variant) initially, then he was updated by the sales person about the new Dzire and he upgraded to the New Dzire Azhure Grey (Dark Grey)

Black is a pain to maintain. But after all the efforts, the shine is worth all the efforts.

Thats my Optra from 2010 when it was 3 years and 40,000km old.

Thanks for correcting me, I had forgotten about the Cave black of the facelift. Having said that, Cave black wasn't pure black, it has a hint of grey in it, unlike the Midnight black(of the pre facelift 2nd gen Dzire), which was pure metallic black color.

Congrats on booking the upcoming Dzire. The Grey is called Metallic Magma Grey, and can be seen in this post (Meeting the 2017 Maruti Dzire).

Shashi
