The country’s largest car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki has updated the Dzire Tour S with new standard safety equipment. The commercial variant is based on the second-generation Dzire and it now gets ABS with EBD, driver airbag, reverse parking sensors, speed alert system and seatbelt reminder for the driver as well as the passenger, as standard. The new standard safety equipment will be mandatory across all cars in the country effectively from 1 July 2019.
Changes are limited to new safety feature upgrades. Mechanically, the vehicle continues to be powered by a 1.3-litre turbo-diesel that generates 74bhp and a 1.2-litre petrol engine that produces 82bhp. The petrol variant is also available in a CNG option, which produces 70bhp. Both the engines are mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
A similar safety update will be available on the current-generation Dzire as well. Prices for the updated Maruti Suzuki Dzire Tour S is marginally higher than its older prices.
Tata Tigor facelift spied testing again with Tata Altroz inspired face
The new Tata Tigor will share its design with the Tiago facelift.
– The Tigor will feature a BS-VI compliant petrol engine.
– Tata Motors is likely to discontinue the 1.05-litre diesel powertrain.
The 2020 Tata Tigor facelift was spied testing earlier this month in Pune. The car has been spotted yet again, undergoing road tests before it hits the market. The facelifted model will carry Tata Motors’ IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy along with an Altroz-inspired front fascia.
As a part of the facelift, the new Tata Tigor will feature a set of new projector headlamps, redesigned grille and revised front bumper. The car is also likely to get a new hood, and a re-profiled rear bumper. As far as interiors are concerned, the Tigor facelift is likely to get added equipment and an updated trim. Standard safety kit will include speed alert system, reverse parking sensors and front seat-belt reminder, in addition to dual airbags and ABS with EBD.
The new Tata Tigor will come powered by a BS-VI compliant 1.2-litre three-cylinder Revotron petrol engine that makes 84bhp and 115Nm. It will continue with the 5-speed manual and AMT transmissions. Tata Motors is unlikely to update the smaller 1.05-litre diesel motor to BS-VI compliance, and will in all probability axe it, owing to the higher development costs.
The facelift model is expected to be launched in the latter half of the year. We expect the prices to be hiked up slightly, compared to the existing car.
