Maruti Dzire achieves 1 lakh sales mark in 5 months

Maruti Suzuki India said that the all-new version of its compact sedan Dzire has crossed one lakh unit sales milestone in just five and half months of launch.

The new Maruti Dzire has been in high demand and has recorded total sales figures of 91,790 units until August 2017, based on data from SIAM.

The waiting period for Maruti’s popular compact sedan is currently around 12 weeks for the petrol engine model. The waiting period for the diesel version is eight weeks currently.

The third generation Dzire was launched in May 2017 and has become the fastest to clock one lakh unit sales mark, Maruti Suzuki said in a statement.

The compact sedan is available in two engine options – the 83hp, 1.2-litre petrol engine and the 75hp, Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre diesel. Both engines are available with a five-speed manual or a five-speed automated manual transmission.

The demand for the petrol versions, particularly the petrol-automatic is more than that of the diesel engine models.
