Presenting the all-New Dzire, Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki, said: "The New Dzire is bound to create plenty of excitement in the Indian automobile market".

Maruti Suzuki, together with its suppliers, has invested over Rs 1,000 crore to develop the new Dzire which has 99 percent localisation levels including the projector headlamps and the Auto Gear Shift system.

The new Dzire had been developed on 5th generation "Heartect" platform, which helps in reduction of weight and improves frame rigidity.

One of the most consistently high-selling models for the company in the country, bookings for the new Dzire had been opened earlier this month at a token amount of Rs 11,000. These figures make the new Dzire the most fuel efficient sedan in its segment.

His daughters vigorously defended him as a civil rights activist, advocate for children, educator, philanthropist and role model. Klieman says the interview could be part of an effort to remind potential jurors of Cosby's presumption of innocence.

While Maruti Suzuki claims the diesel variant of the Dzire gives very good mileage of 28.4 km per litre for the diesel variant, the petrol variant give a mileage of 22 km per litre. Maruti starts offering the five-speed automated manual gearbox options from this trim onwards. The auto uses high tensile steel in its construction and brings new safety standards and crash-worthiness to Maruti Suzuki's product offering. Nor will there be any mild hybrid or SHVS variant. The DZire also gets new 15-inch diamond cut alloy wheels.

According to RS Kalsi, the new Maruti will be produced only at Manesar plant for now although there is sufficient capacity available at the Gurgaon plant as well. But more importantly, it gets dual front airbags and ABS with EBD standard for safety.

The interiors have been tweaked too, with the addition of a rear AC vent, touchscreen infotainment system and a flat bottom steering wheel with faux wooden accents. The V trims also come with a music system which is a 2-DIN unit that comes with Bluetooth connectivity, USB and AUX inputs.

New to the line-up is the top-spec Z+ trim (ZXi+, ZDi+) that packs in a fair share of tech.

The new Dzire sedan, launched nationally by Maruti Suzuki on Tuesday, looks set to shake up the Indian passenger vehicle market.
