With over 20 lakh unit sales, Maruti Suzuki Dzire has now become India’s No.- 1 selling Car! It has emerged on the top just within 8 months of the fiscal year 2019-2020 with almost 1.2 lakh sales already! The company claims that a Maruti Suzuki Dzire sells every 2 minutes in India.
The company launched the First-generation Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire in 2008 and then came up with the Second Generation Dzire in 2012 which was later discontinued when the Third Generation Maruti Suzuki Dzire was launched.It is this Third Generation Dzire which has now become India’s best selling car. It sold over 2.5 Lakh units in the fiscal year 2018-2019.
However, this comes as no surprise as the Indo-Japanese carmaker has been leading the subcompact/compact Sedan segment for the last 10 years!
The massive success and popularity of the current-gen Dzire can be attributed to its new features and increased comfort goodies like LED projector headlamps, daytime running lights, automatic climate control, rear AC vents, Smartplay infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, leather-wrapped steering wheel to name a few. Also better safety like dual airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child-seat mounts as standard across the range is a major feature that gives it an edge over others in that segment.
A current-gen Maruti Suzuki Dzire comes in both petrol and diesel engines and would cost something around 5.8 – 9.2 Lakhs.
