Hello, Myself is SPS Gill from Agra,UP : Previously I was driving Maruti Wagon R VXi for last three years,, :I got my Maruti Dzire VDi car on May 2008. I have average run of 2000kms/Month. Till now i completed 32000 kms. The average I getting is 18-20kms/lts on four-lane highway, 15-16 kms/ltr in city and overall 17.5km/ltrs. : Before booking for this car I had looked for other models of Diesal cars i.e.- Ford fiesta, Ford Fusion, Fiat multijet, Tata Indigo CS/XL, Hyundai Verna and I Compared them thoroughly with regard to performance, price, average, and value for money, and at last I found the Dzire on the TOP of all. : Before Dzire, I was going for swift VDi with ABS and I had booked that car but after looking Dzire I changed my mind and cancelled my booking for swift VDi, i also look for Dzire ZDi model,, but the price differance was too much compared facilities provided in ZDi, so at last i stick with Dzire VDi. :Now I realise that I had taken the good decision by opting Dzire VDi insted of swift VDi, bcos it look great compared to Swift's duck look. :This car not only gives great performance of swift diesal but also it have great look and space as of other high end sedan cars. : The Engine is powerful i.e 75bhp , quickly responsive to acceration , great torque(190nm torque), silent inside, stable at high speed, less vibrating, below 2000rpm this car do well but after passing 2000 rmp htis car change all together,, there is a zoooom just after 2000rmp and engine respond gr8 to acceleration,, : In built CD player is not up to Mark so I added sony woofer and amplifier in the car by taking advantage of great boot space and also I changed 6" rear speakers with oval JVC speakers, now sound is not only great it is rocking.... : Breaking at high speed could be better if ABS is added as standard specification, still car remain stable even with these brakes,,, :AC cooling is very very effective, actually chilling, engine do not come under pressure with AC on at all, blower is also good...,for effective cooling,, i added GARWALE screens, with rear curtain, four window foldable curtain,, it really work for effectiveness of AC,, :Company should remove name Swift from the car, and should use name only "DZIRE" for this model. :If you are looking for entry level sedan, you should go for it, this car is a real beauty and great value for money. If you want to spent little more money then go for hyundai verna, ford fiesta or even scoda octavia,, but remember it still perform better then ford fiesta.... : Suspention is also good, big tyres give great control even at high speed. :Company should make some change in the front look of the car, at least change the headlight of the car so from front it could look differ from swift. vo kehte he na "saamne se dekha to laga swift chali aa rahi he, jab bagal se nikal gai aur pichhware par najar padi to pata chala swift nahi Dezire chali jaa rahi he" : I made a trip to Nainital dehradoon from agra on diwali leave, total run was more then 1200 kms in one week,, at times very poor roads between aligarh n chandousi,,, on bad roads i just deflated tyre pressure by 5-6 points, this really helps in reducing vibration and noice. On highway fourlane, i kept tyre pressure around 36-38 for better pickup n average, the car was fully loaded,, the overall ride was perfect without any problem at all,,, : On 1st April 09,, I nearly completed 11 month with Dzire, till now very smooth driving, no problem at all,, never need any running repair,, all free services done,, waiting for first paid service next month, the most costlier service till now,, i m expecting Rs 6-7k in this service.. : Just done fouth paid service,, it cost me 4k,, coolent changed, engine oil changed, gearbox oil changed, tyre rotation done, wheel balancing done, alignment done,,air filter changed,,, now car doing gr8... no problem at all,, well if u think this review is helpful to u, pls do comment, even if you do not agree with me, them also do right comment. I Wish that u will get ur dream car soon,, and my this review could be helpful for u to get that... SPS Gill, Agra

Simrat Pal Singh on 15 Dec, 2009 at 11:03 PM

hi Dhaval,, how r u,, as both car have same engine,,, i still advice for Dzire,, as more cost effective,, more widespread service network,,, mileage of dzire after 10000kms os still same,, no differeance at all,,,

Simrat Pal Singh on 15 Dec, 2009 at 10:59 PM
