The facelifted 2021 Suzuki Dzire gets a refreshed look in order to keep this affordable small sedan competitive.

Upfront, the 2021 Suzuki Dzire gets a new, enlarged grille and new foglight housings that give this small sedan a sportier vibe. Everything else is carried over from the previous Dzire, but that’s no bad thing since the current generation model looks better proportioned than the previous model. These new changes are only on the GL and GL+, which means that the looks of the base GA model are still unchanged.

Inside, the 2021 Suzuki Dzire still features mostly the same design as the previous model. Just like the pre-facelift models, the GL and GL+ variants have a 7-inch touch screen infotainment system along with rear aircon vents and rear 12V socket. Practicality is also a strong point for the Dzire because of its generous 378-liter trunk space.

Under the hood of the 2021 Suzuki Dzire is still the same 1.2-liter inline-4 gasoline engine as before, which means it still produces 82 hp and 113 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automated manual transimssion (AMT), which is marketed by Suzuki as Auto Gear Shift (AGS). It’s different from a typical automatic transmission wherein it does not have a torque converter. Instead, an AMT uses a robotized clutch that engages and disengages automatically.

As for safety, the new Dzire now gets electronic stability control as standard, a move we commend Suzuki for implementing. This comes on top of hill start assist (GL+), rear parking sensors and dual SRS airbags.

The 2021 Suzuki Dzire is now on sale across all Suzuki dealers. The GL MT variant costs P648,000, while the GL+ AGS variant comes in at P708,000. The base GA is still on sale for P549,900.
