Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL), the India's largest passenger car would be so proud that its flagship compact sedan has become the India's second best selling car. The first position is occupied by the Maruti Alto 800 while the Swift hatch was at the second position but now Maruti Swift Dzire beat the sales of its sibling hatch to become India's second best selling vehicle. If we just take a look at the company's sales record for April 2013, we can notice that the MSIL has sold over 19,446 units of Swift Dzire compact sedans in India, which is 2916 units more than its sibling Maruti Swift. This is certainly a great achievement for the compact sedan and for the company in India.

The company has not compromised on the Maruti Swift Dzire features and incorporated some of the best in class features inside the car. It has got AC, power steering, power windows, music system, ABS and several other features that would return complete value for money. On the other side, it is available with both 1.3 litre diesel and 1.2 litre petrol engine options.
