However, the automatic version of Swift Dzire which is offered on the VXi petrol variant only is now dearer by Rs 12, 000. The diesel version of Swift Dzire is now powered with the mighty 1.3 litre DDiS engine which generates 75PS of power at 4000 rpm and a peak torque of 190Nm at 2000rpm.
In total the prices of second generation Swift Dzire have been raised by Rs 20,000 since February when in was launched in the Indian car market.
Apart from the automatic version, the petrol powered prices remain unchanged. The petrol models are offered in LXi, VXi and ZXi, this might be due to the low demand for the petrol cars in India.

This is done to shorten the long waiting period of the hatchback.
