That then is not so good for the private users. Fortunately, I have seen none so far in Mumbai and Pune. Dzire and Etios go through the same pain. Hopefully, it is addressed.

I liked the decision taken by Ford, they are still manufacturing the pre gen Aspire for T Permits and the facelifted is for private buyers only. Maruti and Toyota can do something similar, infact better than the Americans.

From what I have heard from Maruti dealership executives, Maruti Suzuki is not selling the latest generation Dzire for commercial registrations. But some persons do the registration on their own after buying the car and if they opt for yellow plate, Maruti can't stop them. Have also heard that warranty gets void in such cases.

Our country is full of 'Jugaad' but these gaps are well known to the company as well. Legal actions should be taken against such misuse of policy.

Personally, I like the Etios a lot but just because it is the same car which is bought by the fleet, makes me not go for it (few other reasons as well). I am sure people who like Dzire have the same feeling.

Thanks for the reply! Then self -centering may not be absent completely, but works at higher speeds. Given lakhs of cars sold, it may not be such a big deal to live with it.
When we take a turn or make u-turn, typically steering starts to recenter on own, at speeds of 10-15kmph. This may not be the case in many newer Maruti cars, as older DZire had this, my colleague demoed it to me.
Here's called out in Autocar review (also shows it in video): https://www.autocarindia.com/car-lon...-report-410971

Km/sec in my dreams may be but in real life it's Km/hr. Spotted the mistakes today!

Lack of self-centering is a boon sometimes like parking at tight spaces. As you mentioned, I do miss it while turning. There's a faint little centering force at such speeds which nudges you to turn the steering back. Can live with that! Otherwise the steering is good to hold (I have a MGA faux leather cover).

Come on buddy! They both cannot be compared. Dzire is miles ahead of Triber. If they had given a larger engine with better power outputs then Triber would have made 'some' sense.

It is a no brainier.

Re: Maruti Dzire : Official Review

Yeah, DZire is a class above, but Triber is a for a different need (occassional 5+ passengers or odd size luggages). Wish the 1.2 Kseries motor was powering Triber, but..

With 5+ on board, you shall need those + people to push the car up on inclines

Dzire is good for 5 and good amount of luggage. The diesel motor is powerful to pull on full load. Only negative being the ground clearance shall decrease further

Maruti Suzuki DZire registers its highest sales in past 7 months and emerged as the best selling car of Oct’19!

Unless your car needs to be an MPV due to requirements of regular 7 people / a lot of luggage (DZire has a good enough boot space mind you), DZire makes more sense. Triber is a unique car no doubt, but only when one is looking for it! Not all need an MPV for regular usage. For regular use, if I were shopping and these were my 2 options - I'd pick the DZire. Simply for the engines. Even if it had just 2 seats.

Re: Maruti Dzire : Official Review

I have booked a dzire vxi amt in Popular Chennai and wanted to do pdi before the full amount is paid. The car is Oct 2019 manufactured based on vin and looks new and clean. But the MID was not showing anything when i started the car to check the ODO. The dealer says that it's usual that they disconnect the mid/odo and will only connect before delivery or RTO. Is that the case? Can anyone please confirm?

I don't think that's a normal/ethical practice
I have never had such an experience with any of the new cars (my own and those bought by close friends and relatives) I was involved in/helping in the car buying process or present during delivery of the car.

No, it's definitely not the usual practice. When I did PDI for my Dzire VXI, ODO showed around 20 kms. I have also done PDI for a few friends' Baleno, Ecosport, Nexon etc. and the ODO was never disconnected.

The car was brought from the stockyard to the dealers place to facilitate the PDI for me, which was around 20 kms. The dealer says that they want to avoid the ODO showing above 50kms when they go for registration and that's the reason they disconnected the odo in this case and they normally don't do this for all vehicles. Since the vehicle is Oct manufactured I assume this would not have been used as test drive vehicle. Fingers crossed.
