A lot has already been said about the next gen Maruti Swift (2017 model). The all new Maruti Swift will be available for sale in early 2018 and is expected to repeat the success story of its previous two generations. However, before Maruti launches the new Swift, it is expected to launch the all-new 2017 Maruti Dzire.
The new Dzire, just like its predecessors will be a sedan-derivative of the corresponding gen Swift. It is expected to launch by May, 2017 and prices could start at Rs. 5.50 lakh.
As already said, the new 2017 Maruti Dzire will be launched before the all new Swift. As compared to Swift, Dzire is more in demand and it is clear from its sales figures. The new Dzire will get more features and should provide a higher average mileage. It could also get the new 1.0 L Turbocharged Boosterjet engine.

The 2017 Maruti Dzire will be powered with the same set of engines. However, these engines will possibly get a re-tune to deliver even higher fuel mileage. As of now, the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engines offer up to 20.85 KMPL and 26.59 KMPL respectively. Both the engines are mated to a 5 speed Manual Transmission. The Diesel gets a 5-speed AMT and the Petrol unit gets a 4-speed torque-converter automatic. But both the models could get the 5-speed AMT for the next generation model.
IF rumors are to be believed than the new 2017 Maruti Dzire could even get the Baleno RS’ 1.0 liter Boosterjet Turbo petrol engine.
New Maruti Dzire 2017 Mileage
|Petrol||Upto 20 KMPL|
|Diesel||Upto 27 KMPL|
We are quite sure that the next Dzire will be slightly more fuel efficient. The higher fuel mileage will be because of a lighter platform and probably a re-map along with a SHVS micro hybrid system.
