Maruti Suzuki has updated its most popular Dzire subcompact sedan with a new infotainment system. Revealed by a spy shot, the VXi variant (second from the base) of Dzire now gets a new dashboard-mounted audio system that has been borrowed from Ertiga MPV.
This new entrainment system offers only basic functionalities like DSP/ANT, radio, media, and Bluetooth, USB, & AUX connectivity support. It also features electrostatics touch buttons integrated into the system. However, it can also be controlled through steering mounted audio and telephony controls. Though the functions of the new player are identical to the earlier unit, it looks better and giving the cabin a slightly refreshing look. We believe the upcoming Swift facelift could also feature a similar audio system in its lower variant.
Is there any other change?
We do not expect any other changes besides this. It will continue to get features like manual AC, electrically adjustable ORVMs, steering mounted controls, power windows, electromagnetic trunk opening, dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, etc. The Indian maker is yet to officially announce the feature addition. Therefore, wait for the official announcement for more information related to other changes.
The 2021 Maruti Suzuki Dzire VXI continues to derive its power from a 1.2-liter, four-cylinder petrol engine that churns out 89PS of max grunt and 113Nm of peak torque. This engine can be had with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
As far as the pricing is concerned, it is likely to remain unchanged. Currently, the Dzire VXI variant is priced at Rs 6.91 lakh for the manual version and Rs 7.41 lakh for the automatic model. All prices are ex-showroom Delhi.
