The latest news that has been doing the rounds of the auto industry is that the sedan segment leader Maruti Suzuki Dzire is going to face head-on competition from the recently launched Honda Amaze. It has been one topic that is being highlighted time and again, and the stress is on the fact that the brand new Honda Amaze might have an advantage over the ageing brand name of the bestselling Maruti Swift Dzire.
Maruti Suzuki, being the Indian car manufacturing leader is definitely not going to sit quietly, and to provide a proper answer to all the doubts has worked immediately to launch the new Dzire Regal. The Maruti Dzire Regal is an all new variant of the Swift Dzire that is a complete contemporary warrior to battle against the new Honda Amaze.
The launch of a special edition variant of the leading sedan Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire had been forecasted earlier. As the Honda Amaze was preparing for its official launch, the Indian car leader Maruti was also preparing its sedan leader for a combat. The Dzire Regal is how Maruti Suzuki gave its bestselling brand a new refresh before the new Honda Amaze could actually affect the Swift Dzire’s popularity.
Thus, the new perkier and more attractive Maruti Dzire Regal has come to enchant the Indian consumers with a price tag of Rs 5.95 lakhs (ex-showroom Mumbai), along with all the necessary equipments to give a blow back to the Honda Amaze.
It is very apparent that all the hype about the Honda Amaze tipped off the Indian car leader Maruti Suzuki, who certainly didn’t want its very capable vehicle to look or feel old. Thus, the company quickly gave the sedan topper a makeover.
According to Maruti, the launch of the new Dzire Regal is a special way to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the most popular sedan brand in India, the Swift Dzire. The new refreshed changes of the vehicle include several changes on both the exterior as well as the interior.
As for the external changes of the car, the new Dzire Regal introduces a new silver grille as well as fog lamp inserts. The sedan also includes new body graphics with a massive ‘R’, which asserts that it is a new Regal variant. Other alterations include silver OVRM, reverse parking sensors and body colored mud guards.
As for the interior of the new variant, it includes wood inserts, new art leather seat covers, being colored art-leather cushions, a dual-DIN audio system, door sills with ‘Dzire’ inscribed on them, new leather covered steering wheel, new floor mats and car perfume.
The new Maruti Suzuki Dzire Regal is exclusively available in VXi trim model. Thus, it is available only with the 1.2-litre petrol engine option, similar to the Amaze Petrol variant. Maruti Suzuki is thus, prepared with the new refreshed Dzire variant to lock its horns with the new Honda Amaze compact sedan. It seems that the battle of the two quality sub-4 meter sedans gets all the more interesting.
