0

The all-new Suzuki Dzire, which first made an appearance at the 2018 Manila International Auto Show last April and recently on the track, has been officially launched.

This subcompact sedan is powered by a 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 82hp and 113Nm. The base model GL is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, while the top-spec GL+ gets a five-speed automated-manual transmission called Auto Gear Shift (AGS), which promises to deliver a fun driving feel and fuel efficiency of a manual gearbox with the convenience of an automatic transmission.

The front of the Dzire features a wide open grille with an aggressive bumper, while the rear has a skirt-like bumper (oh, and say goodbye to the awkward trunk of its predecessor). Completing the look are 15-inch alloy wheels.Inside, there’s a D-shaped steering wheel, black interiors, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system (GL+) or 2-DIN sound system (GL), Multimedia Audio System (GL+), and seats covered in fabric with willow riverside pattern. Passengers seated at the back get these creature comforts: a rear console tray, 12V accessory socket, and rear AC ventilation.In terms of safety, the Dzire comes with anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, dual SRS airbags, ISOFIX child seat anchors, side impact beams, security alarm, and immobilizer. The GL+ gets rear parking sensors.

 

The GL MT is available in Premium Arctic White, Metallic Silky Silver, and Premium Midnight Black colors and is priced at P638,000. Meanwhile, the GL+ AGS variant comes in Premium Oxford Blue, Premium Sherwood Brown, Premium Arctic White, Premium Midnight Black, and Metallic Magma Gray colors and comes with a P698,000 price tag.
