Earlier this-year Maruti Suzuki India launched the new Swift DZire Compact Sedan (CS). A month after the launch of new Swift DZire, the company rebadged the outgoing model Dzire with a ‘Tour’ suffix and kept it alive by restricting its sales to the taxi market.
The Swift Dzire Tour is stripped down version of older generation Dzire available in both the fuel base variants, the petrol variant will be LXi and diesel variant will be LDi. It features the black front and rear bumpers (instead of body colored), black outside rear-view mirrors (only one side), black door knobs, stickers replacing the chrome-plated lettering on the boot and an old Swift hatchbacks’ front grille.
Now due to the overwhelming demand and long waiting periods for its new Dzire, Maruti has decided to make Dzire Tour available to private car as well. But to differentiate it from the taxi model the customer has to pay an estimated sum of Rs 12,000-15,000 to get body color painted on the front and rear bumpers, along with the door handles and outside rear-view mirrors (only one side). However to get central locking, the left wing mirror and other accessories installed, buyers will have to shell out extra.
