The Maruti Dzire Regal will sport a serene blue body colour, leather upholstery, a advanced music system, rear parking sensor, body-coloured foldable rear view mirrors and a silver coloured front grill.

The Dzire Regal will be priced at 560,000 rupees (ex-showroom Delhi). These additions are dealer-level accessory fitments. The gestation time for such launches is the lowest.

Maruti has not officially announced prices or released photographs of the Regal. We may learn more about it in the next few days, so do stay tuned.
