The Dzire has held the title for being the highest-selling sedan in India for over a decade now. Maruti Suzuki have now been upgraded the popular compact sedan to a BS VI-compliant petrol engine as well as made a few cosmetic changes. For now, there’s no word on whether there will be a diesel engine option but we will have to wait to find out. The front of the Dzire BS6 has slightly been updated with revised styling for a bolder look. It gets a single front grille and bold chrome accents on the lower bumper. It will also be available with a choice of two new colour options: Premium Silver and Phoenix Red.

The Dzire BS6 gets a next-gen K-series DualJet, Dual-VVT petrol engine that makes 90 hp at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 113 Nm at 4,400 rpm, which is mated to either a manual or an AGS (Auto Gear Shift) automated transmission. The previous model made 83 hp at 6,000 rpm and 113 Nm at 4,200 rpm, giving the new Dzire BS6 a bump up of seven hp. Maruti Suzuki claim that the new engine, with higher compression ratio, cooled EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) system, and piston cooling jet, offers improved efficiency and reduced friction which leads to a fuel efficiency of 23.26 km/l in the manual and 24.12 km/l in automated variants.

Inside, the Dzire BS6 gets a new 4.2-inch multi-information coloured TFT display. There is also new modern wooden finish on the doors and instrument panels with natural gloss finish. Dual-tone seats have also been added to increase the overall interior appeal of the car. The new 7.0-inch Smartplay Studio touch infotainment system combines smartphone, vehicle and cloud-based services to offer a connected experience. In addition to music, the user can surf news feeds, get the latest weather updates, and use the navigation system with live traffic updates.
