Facelifted Maruti Suzuki Dzire Launched, Prices Increase a Little
Maruti Suzuki has launched the 2020 face-lifted Dzire with prices start at Rs 5.89 lakh ex-showroom. The new Dzire now only comes as a petrol-only variant with a 1.2-litre "dual-jet" four-cylinder engine. It comes in a total of seven variants including three with automated manual transmissions (AMT).
