better looker??? the dzire seriously???

i would have to disagree with you on that. the dzire is a swift chopped off from the b pillar and a result off engineers trying to be designers.

no doubt its going to kill the competition at 5 lacs and a diesel option. but to damage the city sx4 has to step up its game.

SX4 is doing a good job as it is and i assume the last month figures was not that bad for the SX4 even though the dzire was launched.

Latest waiting period for Dzire diesel in Gurgaon is 6 months. But the car is worth waiting.

6 months worth waiting ? By that time there might be 6-7 new models. But then this is India

I had ready todays Business Line - Logan prices to be increased by Rs. 20,000-30,000 because of increase in steel prices. Has M&M gone crazy? They should try to hold on for sometime and take advantage of wiating period of Dzire. IMO Logan was always overpriced.

Given that today even hatches are light years ahead of the current NHC in many parameters, I think the onus is on Honda to prove themselves with their new offering and not the other way around.

So Logan is going the tougher way.Maybe all manufacturers would join this band wagon to increase prices if the steel prices have gone up.So better time to get cars-NOW.

Not an intelligent move by Logan. Price increase will further weaken their position vis-a-vis swift dzire.

Well, the Logan petrols are pretty value-priced now. It is the overpriced diesel that, I hope, does not become more expensive.

Happened to see two black Dzire's in Bangalore. IMHO it looks great and if it handles as well as the swift. Maruti has a winner here

IMO, I fail to understand the relationship between the front and rear of a Dezire..hehe. But I have a strong feeling that the car is gonna be a hit because of its pricing. Its great VFM.
