The Suzuki Dzire, initially launched as the Swift Dzire and later renamed in 2017, is a subcompact sedan introduced by the Japanese automaker Suzuki. The Dzire is based on the Swift hatchback and is a significant player in the compact sedan market segment, particularly in emerging markets like India.
The Suzuki Dzire comes with various engine options depending on the market and model year. The latest generation typically comes with a 1.2-liter, four-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine producing around 82 horsepower. There's also a 1.3-liter turbo diesel variant available.
These engines are mated with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed automated manual transmission (AMT). The car's lightweight build allows it to deliver decent performance and excellent fuel economy, which is a crucial factor for its target market.

The Dzire has a contemporary design, with sleek lines and a modern look that appeals to young and family buyers alike. Read more
