Eager to see some more pics.
Is this the right one?

But the image in this link (Quickie - The Economic Times) is torture for eyes. Or it is because of the angle the phone is taken?
that is a very old photoshopd image.
the white one is the right pic

the white one is the original one.the panel gaps are pretty on the acceptable level.the c-pillar is a qurious design.never seen one in india having such a design.
dont put up posts like if dzire was for 3.90 i would buy it.it was clearly mentioned that dzire would be between 40-50k more than the swift sibling.

Then it will fit into the small car segment. Indigo CS is also well within 4 meters range. But 40~50K more than the current swift, will it not be priced too high if it falls under 4 meters range?

Cool. The white one looks neat. I think if you replace the wheels with better looking alloys, it would certainly be a stud (more men are back ). Maruti's success rate is pretty high, we can have some hope on this too.

snaronikar, i think ankit was talking about the IndigoCS's length there (3988 mm) and not the Dzire's.

The car surely will eat into the numbers of Fiesta and Verna.. apart from Indigo and Logan.

Now, I am not very sure of this. Estilo could never see the success that the old zen saw.
We can't be very sure if the new model will be as successful as the old esteem.
I have never seen panel gaps as wide as in dzire, on any other car

In the segment at which the Dzire is aimed at, ie entry level sedans, i dont think panel gaps are given much importance.

Default No M13??

This news confirms that the new M series engine wont be coming as of now. And the dealer in my city is bad. But any way, the weight increase is not much so the performace wont be affected by a huge margin. If the price is 50K greater than the Hatch, then I feel that Indigo ( not the CS ), Logan, Fiesta( 1.4 model) and Verna( to some extent), Aveo( 1.4l model) would all land up in huge trouble.

Nice move from Maruti. Hope the specifications about the length, width and height come out.

Can any body throw light on Swift Dzire's lenght and width along with wheelbase.

Length of Indigo CS is less than 4M. But I am confused. so if possible please some one put up the Lenght, Width and Wheelbase of Swift Dzire.

yes jk,other wise also every one will be interested in the boot of this car and when you see it in flesh,the initial emotion going through will be woow,the design is never seen in any car of this range and the other one you would expect to be altered would be the rear stop lights.its a bit out of place but still a good job done.

Yesterday I saw a indigo dicor cs under testing which was fully finished which means ready for launch well this will surely toughen the market as dicor is currently costlier then tdi version by around 30K which means indigo cs dicor range may start from 4.4 & extend upto 5 lacs ex showroom pune.

Surely tough compedition for dezire.
