Maruti launches updated Ciaz

  • Published On: 22 August 2018

The car gets cosmetic changes outside and more kit on the inside, plus a new 1.5-litre petrol engine.

The updated Ciaz debuts Suzuki’s new 1.5-litre petrol engine in India, which replaces the car’s outgoing 1.4-litre unit. You have the options of a petrol-manual, petrol-automatic and diesel-manual, like the earlier car. The petrol-manual (Rs 8.19-9.97 lakh) and diesel-manual (Rs 9.19-10.97 lakh) are sold in four trims each – namely, Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha – while the petrol-automatic (Rs 9.80-10.97 lakh) is available in the Delta, Zeta and Alpha trims.

Changes on the outside include a new grille design with chrome garnish on higher-spec trims, and LED headlamps and tail-lamps, new front and rear bumpers and 16-inch alloy wheels on the top-spec variant. There’s more equipment available now. Dual-front airbags and ABS remain standard across the range, a speed alert system, rear parking sensors and seat belt reminders for the driver and front passenger are also part of the package.

The older 92hp, 1.4-litre petrol engine has made way for a larger 1.5-litre K15B four-cylinder motor with micro-hybrid tech. The engines come mated either to a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission, depending on the variant. The new engine makes 104hp and 138Nm and offers an ARAI-certified fuel economy of 21.56kpl for the manual version and 20.28kpl for the automatic.
