2017 Maruti Dzire revealed ahead of May 16 launch
Posted on Apr 24, 2017 by Shapur Kotwal

The new Dzire, which is built on the same platform as the Baleno and the new Swift, also features an all-new dashboard that has plenty of elements from the all-new Swift. Chief among these are the steering wheel and the dials. The basic structure of the dash is similar to the Swift. Stuff like the floating centre console, the glovebox and the side vents are carried over. Maruti, however, has steered the Dzire away from the circular theme used on the centre console of the all-new yet-to-come-to-India Swift.

So, the instrument panel is rectangular, the vents on the central console are wedge-shaped and the air con system doesn’t have rotary knobs either. Also different from the Swift’s black-on-black theme is the colour palette used on this car. Dual-tone black and beige plastics have been used and a generous dose of faux wood can be seen, especially on the steering wheel. Not too much is clear about the rear bench. Still, with slimmer and more space-efficient seats, similar to those of the new Swift, and the slightly longer wheelbase of 2,450mm, there’s likely to be much more space in the rear. Rear passengers also get a second set of AC vents, a first for Dzire.
