Maruti Suzuki Dzire earlier known as Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire is top-seller in the subcompact sedan segment in India. Making its first appearance in the Indian market way back in 2008, it was developed as a variation of the Suzuki Swift hatchback. With the BS6 transition in sight, Maruti Suzuki launched the updated version to comply with the stringent emission norms. The nationwide lockdown delayed the deliveries of the BS6 Dzire to the Indian customers in the April month. With the relaxations in place now, Maruti is now offering heavy discounts on Dzire to drive sales.
Maruti Suzuki has announced total benefits of Rs 48,000 on the 2020 Dzire sedan. The benefits include flat cash of Rs 20,000, with an exchange offer around Rs 25,000 and other benefits of Rs 3,000. New 2020 Dzire base LXI begins at Rs 589000 while the top-end variant Dzire ZXI will set you back by Rs 880500 (Both the prices are ex-showroom, Delhi). It comes in two new colour options- Premium Silver and Phoenix Red.
