Mine is a VDi model and I don't have the ACC.
Still I think the cooling capacity/compresser rating should be the same for both V and Z model.
Yes, the climate is extreme at my place but that's not the real excuse I feel.

What should be the Air flow mode ?
And should the external air be circulated instead of internal air ?

If the car is standing in the sun for a long time, I generally follow the steps below

Open All Windows and turn on the blower at highest speed (AC not running)
After a while once the pressure cooker like feeling goes away, close the windows and turn on the AC at maximum cooling. In next 3 - 4 mins the car is cool and then turn the AC to something comfortable.

With Dzire, I have carried this whole excericise in 3 - 4 mins which I think is quite resonable.

Any comments on this ? New Swift/dzire owners?

What steps should be taken for quicker cooling ?

- Should the air circulation mode be changed for outside air to come on or just the internal air should be circulated ?

- Shockingly Alto's ac seem to be better ! What is the compressor rating of these cars, can someone mention?

(Climate is tropical at my place. Extreme and 45+ at times. Sunfilms still installed.)
Find the a/c on my new Swift ZDI excellent. The car does not have a sun film and the temperatures in Chennai has been around 43 degrees. The cabin gets cooled in no time. Would agree with Adi k on the method to be followed

About Z trims / L trims not produced in ample - Yes I and even my friend had got the similar responses from our dealer. In fact my friend was offered Baige ZXi by his dealer. However he preferred Pacific Blue over Baige.

I myself too did not find any issues with cooling in dzire inspite Sun Film not being present on the car. ACC works flowlessly to cool the cabin. I do follow the steps mentioned by Adi_K every time before starting AC (irrespective of car standing in sun or not)

Thanks

just to add:

roll down all windows , run the blower at full speed for half a minute or so and then switch the compressor on.

Let the cool air displace the humid air inside cabin(say for 2 minutes) and then roll windows up.

The unit will work more efficiently once this is done.

Maruti is getting high handed now.
They know the dzire is gonna be bought, no matter what.
I booked a zxi a month back, and for the past 7 days all I am hearing from Rana motors is that there's a strike of allow wheel makers, hence no zxi versions are rolling.
Bull.
I can't believe that maruti would allow someone to brake the production of its biggest current seller for such a long period.
Anybody has any ideas?
Or can someone suggest an alternative to this car with Airbags in a similar price bracket?

EDIT:only put this here cos one month was the time given by the dealer, in fact professed in LARGE block letters on a board right at his entrance.

Hi Omar - my friend (AmeyM) had applied for Team BHP membership. However he has not received full membership as of now. Thus he could not reply / quote on any posts as of now.

He was little lucky and has got delivery of his car. It was Dzire ZXi. However as mentioned, he too had to switch from original colour option of white to other colour for getting deliviry on time. There was alternate colour option available with the dealer (and in same top end varient) as one of the customer has refused delivery of the car for certain reason and my friend was lucky enough to get that car alloted to him.

I must admit that the Dzire's looks are growing on me. I saw a white Dzire with nice wheels in Juhu yesterday. I liked it, including the stubby rear 3-quarter.

If its between Jazz and dzire petrol, I think you can go ahead with the Jazz.
Jazz's interior space is unreal and I like the dashboard configuration. Even in terms of boot volume it beats the dzire fair and square.

Dzire's advantage will be a better (more refined) suspension and Maruti's widespread service.

Can we expect one in your garage soon?

To cash in on ghe swift and dzire popularity and also to get a major chunk of the c2 segment, maruti has to launch a full grown dzire as early as possible. Sx4 won't help them anymore.

+1,

Even I am now liking the new one and old Dzire looks dated save for the rear 3 quarter view.
