The Maruti Suzuki Dzire has been announced to be the number one sedan in India, a title it has held for over a decade now.

The Maruti Suzuki Dzire is the choice of over 19 lakh Indian customers and is proving to be the bestselling compact sedan in its segment. Maruti Suzuki India have sold 2.5 lakh units of the Dzire in 2018-19, averaging it to around 21,000 units per month. Maruti Suzuki claim that the new Dzire became a hit since May 2017. It is currently priced from Rs 5.70 lakh (ex-showroom) and features such as daytime running lights, precision-cut two-tone alloy wheels, rear air-vents and a SmartPlay infotainment system that is compatible with Android and iOS, all of which make the Dzire an irresistible package in its segment.

The Auto Gear Shift (AGS) automated transmission is available across six variants of the Dzire – three each in petrol and diesel. Nearly 13 per cent buyers have chosen automatic variants. The company also says that, interestingly, the compact sedan is a first car purchase for almost half of their customers. The Maruti Suzuki Dzire also offers among the best fuel efficiency in its segment. The new Dzire is based on the new Heartect platform and brings a new design, more space and is equipped with more safety features, including ABS with EBD, pre-tensioner-equipped seat belts with load limiters, ISOFIX child-seat restraint system and dual front airbags.

Shashank Srivastava, Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said: “The brand ‘Dzire’ has been a major contributor to Maruti Suzuki’s journey and we express our gratitude to customers. With the launch of Dzire, we created a new ‘compact sedan’ segment. This segment is continuously evolving and growing. Over the years, Maruti Suzuki Dzire has led this growth and it continues to be relevant and attractive to customers. A testimony to its strong customer connect is that the sales of third-generation Dzire went up by nearly 20 per cent.”
