It should be DGS&D, i.e., Directorate General Supplies & Disposal, Government of India. DGS&D rate contract enables government departments/PSUs procure the specified item at the specified rate without calling for tenders/quotations.

Someone mentioned here that when relaunched, SX4 prices may be revised upwards substantially. Can this also be a move to increase prices of highly successful DZire subsequently? With a long waiting period, unbeatable value proposition in its segment & being the king in its segment, DZire can afford to have a slight price rise. MUL may also be looking at milking the cash cow now when DZire is rulling the roost

I meta few guys(non Auto enthusiasts) over the weekend & I was amazed that almost all of them are under impression that SX4 is discontinued. Every said that they read that SX4's production has been halted but none knew that it was for launching an upgrade.

DGS&D is a govrrment of India rate contract. Govt departments can products tru DGS&D ( Director Gen Supplies and Disposal) without going in for a tender.

"Maruti will relaunch the Suzuki SX4 with a new 1.6-liter 106 bhp petrol engine that meets the Bharat Stage-IV standards. That makes it just 8 bhp short of the all-new Honda City. Torque would be between 165-175 Nm.

The 106 bhp SX4 will also be offered with an automatic transmission during the upcoming Diwali festive season. Automatic transmission are beginning to gain popularity in India. Automatics are not preferred by many car buyers in India, but in the premium models, it is compulsory to have one variant of late.


The new Suzuki SX4 will don a slightly revised front grill among many other changes. Its interiors will also be tweaked a little."

If you add a green cotton storm or K&N performance filter to teh existing sx4, you will get similar figures if you assume a 5% power boost, which the filter companies claim. The BHP would be around 107 and torque around 152nm....plus, the lower end response would improve as well.

Just a thought....I am waiting for the first year to get over in my SX4 before doing these mods.

Is there a known K&N filter for SX4? The last time I inquired, I was told there is no filter that can fit or is tested with SX4. There is a crude fix of a Baleno filter into SX4, but I was advised against it.

A stock replacement filter will always be a challenge unless you get the correct one. However if I were you I wouldn't mind spending that extra thousand and get myself a conical intake with the piping work done.
Am sure you could easily fit in the typhoon series/conical intake from the K&N without much of a hassle.

I am really happy that this news has re-ignited our interests in SX4 . I for one liked the car because it re-wrote few equations in terms of safety aspects in its segment and beyond. I eagerly look forward to 6 air bags along with all these modifications. Lets wait and see if SX4 can once again raise the bar.

Slightly off topic - I think the minor changes hinted for SX4 seems to have major impact on sales point. One of my collegue who had looked at SX4 a week ago got a call from a dealer today who was offering discounts upto 45K on the current model if he books it today or tomorrow !!

Makes sense, will try it in my next pit stop.
