One of the india's top most selling car Maruti SWIFT Dzire tour is likely to be stopped in early 2017. Maruti's superhit passenger vehicle series SWIFT captured indian car market a lot. Now Maruthi is planning to stop it's sedan Dzire Tour production by March next year. The spare and service support from Maruti will continue. The carmaker will stop production of the Dzire Tour to make way for the new Dzire expected to be launched around March..  sources from automobile industry confirmed it.

Sources said that Maruti already told it's dealers about the plans to stop the production of the Tour. However, in March 2012, the old Dzire was relaunched in stripped-down model to enter the corporate and taxi segment in India. Now on Indian roads most cab services are using Dzire tour. Luxury and performance mixed Dzire tour was got popularity in all states.

Now Maruti is planning to make some changes and to planning to launch a new strip down model in the current Dzire which will be pushed in the fleet segment. While an upgrade and feature rich Dzire is expected to come for the personal use. Dzire Tour has been selling well in the range of 2,500 to 3,000 units a month. During november 2016 it sold 3,017 Dzire Tours pan india.

Maruti already stopped production of its hatchback Ritz. Automobile experts saying that stopping these models is a strategy to push Its Baleno and Brezza. Maruti Ignis is also ready to hit market.. so, diverting the Dzire tour lovers to baleno, brezza, Ignis is necessary to Maruti.

At the same time Maruti is struggling to produce more units of Baleno and Brezza due to the demand of existing models like Ritz and Dzire tour. so, it is also one reason to take the step.
