Somebody correct me if there are other options.
Honda BR-V as well (with the adjustable second row seats), albeit it costs a wee bit more than 10 lakhs on road .

I'm seriously considering to purchase this car (AMT VXi/ZXi) for my father. He prefers an automatic and petrol, as vehicle use will be limited (~500-1000 Kms/month)

Could you shed some light as to why you made the above statement? Is AMT tech on Dzire not good (i.e. prone to faults or complaints) and could you suggest the other ATs you had in mind?

Thanks in advance!

This is just to finish off with the stock. We may see another one in January. This is mainly because the new generation Swift will be launched at Auto Expo 2018. Dzire has just been launched, forget about such iterations for a year or so.

My mom's Dzire was dispatched from the factory recently and would have been delivered to us in the first week of December. Asked the dealer to allot it to someone else aas it was the end of the year anyways and allot us a car from the next batch. So we will now be getting our Dzire in mid to end Feb as it seems the factory will be down for a bit in Jan.

Anyone picked up black 3D mats for the Dzire ?

I am unable to connect to Apple Car Play on the infotainment system. I connected the iphone through the USB port but the 4th quadrant is still showing "Connect your phone through USB". Can anyone throw some light on how this can be solved?

Recently did a long trip (Akola - Pune - Goa - Pune - Akola) in my dzire Vdi, got a consistent mileage figure between 27.5 - 28 KMPL with AC on during the whole trip.

Wonderful mileage. I guess, it's a Manual gear Vdi. Everyone's eyes are on Diesel as dirty fuel, but if the consumption is reduced by 25%, then it automatically helps environment. I'm sure Petrol version can't stretch to this extent.

Does it require any app on the phone? For android phones we need android auto. sometime even after connecting the USB cable the screen is completely unresponsive in my case.

in between, has anyone tried to mirror their phone on the suzuki smart infotainment system? i saw a video on youtube but it was for a samsung galaxy phone and the apps suggested are not compatible with Xiaomi redmi phones.

Please plug in a pendrive and verify your USB port is not the culprit here. Also, does your iPhone charge when connected? The Apple Car play provided here in Maruti cars connect only through wires- Bluetooth connection is not supported. Kindly check the corresponding settings in the phone as well.
I had the exact issue of "phone not recognized" and it turned out that port was faulty. Got the USB port replaced from MASS, under warranty.

iPhone does not need any specific app for connecting to Apple Car play.

Thanks autospeaker for your inputs. The iPhone charges when it is connected. After a bit of research on the internet I found out that the culprit was a setting on the phone. I had to go to Settings -> General -> Restrictions and there Apple CarPlay was restricted. Had to remove the restriction for CarPlay through a toggle switch and now it works fine.

I agree that the mileage is quite good. I have a zdi+ and I am using it for daily commute of 70Km each day within city traffic. With 4 people onboard, wider tyres and 100% AC I am still getting ~22-23kmpl.

Maruti has issued a voluntary recall for the new Dzire due to a possible fault in the rear-wheel hub. Dubbed as a ‘service campaign’ the recall will affect 21,494 examples of the Dzire, manufactured between February 23, 2017 and July 10, 2017.

Is there any link where we can check if our car is part of this recall.

My goodness, this is one heck of an overachiever! The new Dzire is like the 'Michael Schumacher' of compact sedans .

From Maruti's press release:
Quote:
In 2008-09, there were 4 players in the entry-level sedan segment and the Dzire accounted for 41% market share in the segment. In 2016-17, the number of players in the entry-level sedan segment have shot up to 11, while Dzire's market share has shot up to 50%.

What’s more interesting is, in Q2 2017-18, Dzire's market share in the entry level segment rose to 63% against 51% in the Q2 of 2016-17.

Dzire achieved the fastest 1 lakh sales in the Indian automobile industry in 5.5 months. Who is the buyer? The average MHI of the customer has also increased. Now, more affluent families are opting for the Dzire. Among the top three reasons, it is the looks of the Dzire that have made it a runaway success.

I know of few families where the teenagers were adamant about Dzire because it's front view had resemblance to Mini! And Dzire doesn't look like a compact sedan, it's handsome than few sedans and for sure is the best looking compact sedan. The interiors are a no contest. The only grouse I have is that soulless steering, but the mass market don't care a hoot! The designers really have to be given a standing ovation!!!
