Driving The New Suzuki Dzire

Here’s why you should #GiveIntoDzire…

The all-new Suzuki Dzire comes with new styling and even more value than before. It is now also a stand-alone brand, where in the past, it was paired with the Suzuki Swift. I recently took the Dzire for test-drive – it’s good to know that it works well in the city and on the open road.

What’s it like to drive?

It is such a quiet ride. Whether you’re navigating potholes, driving in the city or on national roads – it doesn’t get ‘busy’ with noise. This comes down to the fact that the new Dzire has been aerodynamically optimised, which means cabin noise is reduced at high speeds.

Petrol consumption in the Suzuki Dzire is also worth raving about – we’re just passed the half-way mark in 2018 and have already experienced several fuel hikes. Fuel consumption remained at an average of 5,7km/l, whether I drove it in the city or the route I took to the Swartland, which is pretty impressive and budget-friendly.

More enjoyment from the all-new Suzuki Dzire…

The 1.2l engine delivers 61kW of power – so hills and inclines are not even an issue – this car is a lot more powerful than what it appears to be at first glance. It’s really responsive too – when you want it to go, it does.

There is also ample boot space – four adults fit comfortably and a lack of leg room isn’t even something you need to worry about – there’s plenty. All the boxes are ticked: speedy, spacious and not a petrol glugger.

Suzuki Dzire Derivatives:

  • 1.2 GA Manual
  • 1.2 GL Manual
  • 1.2 GL AMT

All models are sold with Suzuki’s acclaimed 5-year/200 000km mechanical warranty and a 2-year/30 000km service plan, with a starting price of R161 900.

It’s the ideal car for anyone who loves a hatchback because it really is so compact and easy to parallel park! It is also even better than a hatchback because of how spacious it is inside. In addition to that, it packs some serious power for its size. If it’s sparked your interest – give it a test-drive and see for yourself. It really is worth taking it for a spin to know for sure.
