The 2020 Maruti DZire that was launched just days before the public lockdown was declared has started arriving at dealerships. YouTuber Arun Panwar has set up a walkaround video of the Maruti DZire facelift base model to show what the new sedan’s starting price buys.
The Maruti DZire base model looks pretty stripped down from the outside. It doesn’t include body-hued door handles, body-shaded mirrors and turn indicators on the mirrors. It settles for steels wheels, which are also smaller, 14-inch units. Wheel covers are excluded from the LXi variation. Like bigger, amalgam wheels, chrome window trim also is rejected in the base variation. Instead, there are dark stripes that are less expensive.The Maruti Suzuki Dzire is controlled by a 1.2-liter, four-chamber ‘K12N’ DualJet petrol engine, which replaces the active vehicle’s 1.2-liter ‘K12M’ engine. This new engine produces 90hp (7hp more than the engine it replaces) and 113Nm. Despite the fact that it misses out on Maruti’s SHVS mellow hybrid system which features in the DualJet-controlled Baleno, the Dzire does get inert stop-start tech, which helps amplify efficiency. There is no diesel engine choice with the Dzire facelift.
Gearbox options incorporate a 5-speed manual and a mechanized manual transmission (AMT), with the last being offered with the K12N DualJet engine unexpectedly. Eco-friendliness for the Dzire facelift is evaluated at 23.26kpl for the manual version and 24.12kpl for the AMT version, as indicated by ARAI.
The Maruti DZire facelift’s base variation is as poor on the inside as it would have you think taking a gander at its exterior. Double tone shading scheme, Multi-Information Display (MID) and gearshift marker are the main key features included. On the safety front, notwithstanding ABS with EBD and BA, driver airbag, ISOFIX youngster seat anchorages, speed ready system, driver and co-driver SBR and reverse stopping sensors, co-driver airbag is standard in the Maruti DZire.
In the engine, the base Maruti DZire facelift has the same engine as the higher configurations. It’s the K12N 1.2-liter Dual Jet Dual VVT normally aspirated four-chamber petrol unit. It comes with first-in-segment inactive start-stop (ISS) work. It produces a most extreme intensity of 66 kW (90 PS) at 6,000 rpm and a greatest force of 113 Nm at 4,400 rpm.
A 5-speed manual transmission is standard in the 2020 Maruti DZire LXi. The efficiency rating (mileage) of the base model is 23.26 km/l.
